Is it Possible to be Pregnant if the Pregnancy Test is Negative?



Can you still be pregnant if the pregnancy test is negative?

When you’re trying to get pregnant, one of the most frustrating things is to take one pregnancy test after another and to have them all come back negative. However, did you know that pregnancy tests can show a negative result but you might in fact be pregnant? This article is intended to discuss why this can occur to provide you with more information if you ever find yourself in this situation.

However, if you would like to reduce the likelihood of this happening, it is important that you allow your period to occur before taking a pregnancy test. This gives your body a chance to secrete high enough concentrations of human chorionic gonadotropin, or hCG, to ensure that even the least sensitive pregnancy tests can accurately tell you whether or not conception has occurred.





Reasons Why a False Negative Pregnancy Test Might Occur

If you don’t already know, a false pregnancy test is when you take a pregnancy test and it comes back with a negative result when you actually are pregnant. This can confuse some women. However, there are a few well-known reasons why false negative pregnancy tests can occur:

  • Taking a Pregnancy Test Too Early – If you haven’t calculated your time of ovulation properly, if an implantation occurred later than you might have thought, or if you took a pregnancy test before your period is due, you might end up with a false negative test. Often, having too low of a concentration of hCG in your body before taking the pregnancy test is one of the primary reasons why a test will come back negative even if you are pregnant. Pay attention to the sensitivity of the pregnancy test that you’re using, especially if you’re taking the test before your missed period. Tests that only require an hCG concentration of 25 mIU can be used 4 to 5 days before a period is due whereas others might not be able to detect pregnancy until after your period has passed. The best precaution that you can take to ensure your result is accurate is to wait until after your period to take a pregnancy test, regardless of the sensitivity of the test that you choose to use.
  • Improper Technique – Errors in technique while testing can be another common cause of false negative results. If you didn’t dip the stick according to the instructions, or if you used a midstream test and didn’t get the test saturated enough, you might have used improper technique while taking the test.
  • Delayed Reaction Time – When it comes to pregnancy tests, timing is everything. Each pregnancy test that you purchase will have a specific reaction time that you must adhere to because if you don’t, your results will be inaccurate. As a result, you might have false negative results even if you are pregnant.

At-home pregnancy tests can be a challenge. If you take a test and get a negative result, it’s best to wait a few days before taking a test again. Generally, a negative result can mean three things. Specifically, it can mean that you aren’t pregnant, you took the pregnancy test too early, or you took the test incorrectly. If you’ve received mixed results after taking multiple tests, the best way to get an accurate answer is to visit your doctor for a blood pregnancy test.

    Hi i had a 2 day period on the 20th of September i done 4 test two where strip ones and came positive 2 where asda ones and was negative i am due on in a few days but no period symptoms witch is unusual for me could i be pregnant or is it stress related?

  • RR Franz

    You can be pregnant and still have a negative result : there is another reason that you could be coming up negative. There are four types of pregnancy hormone the human body produces not just one. The test used today test only for type A hCG, (the most common in humans in early pregnancy). Yet there are three other types not tested for (all four types are usually produced in the third trimester) …The reason you would still be having periods is because hCG needs to be in enough amounts to trigger the pituitary gland to stop the period.
    If you believe yourself to be pregnant even when having periods (because other pregnancy symptoms appear) take care of yourself as if pregnant . Take herb supplement to decrease mentreal flow for at least 5 months , by then you should be able to know weather you are pregnant for sure …Advice from a mom of six (with period, early negative until after 5 months babies)

  • RR Franz

    It could be both . If some of the test came back positive you do have hCG in your urine… stress can also make you late. I would go with the positve result though…. hCG is only in the body when pregnant > unless you are taking hCG suppliments for weight loss

    hi I haven’t had a period in 3 months I’ve took multiple of tests and they have all came out to be negative wat should I do ?

  • shiela

    i’am delayed for a 2months..so i decide to use a pt kit but the result is negative but i feel that i’am pregnant what should i do?

  • Maggie

    My husband and I had been using the ovulation sticks which showed I was ovulating Feb 2-4 my period was supposed to start on Feb 10th but did not start until Feb 24th , I started spotting, and had a medium to light period I usally have a very heavy one.. I have taken several pg test but all have come back negative, is it possible I am/was pregnant?

  • s

    This also does not discuss producing false-negatives. When my mother was pregnant with me, she had periods until she was nearly 5 months along with no signs or symptoms. With my sister, she thought she was pregnant and took test after test and all showed negative until she ended in the hospital for an infection and then they told her at 4 months along! You can never be 100% sure with at home testing!

  • Joy

    Hi everyone, I had a 4 day period this past month and I have been having many symptoms of pregnancy. I already have a 21 month old daughter so I am aware of the symptoms that occur. I am getting negative tests but I didn’t miss a period yet for the next month because I am not due for it yet. I have just been feeling a lot of symptoms but I may be testing at the wrong time. I am going to see if I get my period on June 4th when it’s due and then If not I will take another pregnancy test.c

  • RN

    That’s not the correct time period for conception. If you have a 28-day cycle, you ovulate 14 days after the start of your last period.

  • bryanna

    Hi last month i was pregnant. but i had a miscarriage. this month i am 11 days late and feel pregnant again but I’ve taken four tests all saying negative. could i still be pregnant?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    If the tests keep showing negatives, you probably are not pregnant. As you had a miscarriage, it could be that your body is just trying to regain it’s hormonal balance. This could account for your very late period. If you doubt, you can always go and see your doctor to discuss your concerns.

  • jhen

    I’m delayed for 2,months and I took a pt but it shows negative.. My boobs hurt I felt I’m pregnant.. Is it possible to be pregnant even if the pt keep showing negative? Thanks

    Me and my boyfriend had sex about a month ago. A couple weeks passed and my boobs were very sore I couldn’t even sleep on my stomach. I was having cramps and having nausea on and off. It stopped and I started my period a week earlier than usual. I took a test while on period it came out negative . I’m still having nausea here and there. I can’t throw up ! Can I be pregnant ? Oh ya I feel like I’m getting bigger on my stomach . My diet hasn’t changed so I don’t know .

  • naomi

    well I have tooken sseveral test .. they tell always tell me I am not .. but I am having back pains in the lower part of my spin and throwing up ,feeling sick and headaches, and stomach cramps… I have a iud as my birthcontrol.. could I still be pregnant.. ??????

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    The IUD is usually a very reliable form of birth control. If you keep having negative tests, you may want to visit your doctor to find out what is going on in your body that is causing the symptoms you are having.

  • Melissa James Black

    Hi. I have had the IUD Mirena since Nov 2013. It has been wonderful and I got it because I was having heavy, painful cycles. I haven’t had a cycle since Jan of this year. Plus I have had gastric bypass surgery 2 and a half years ago and Ive lost over 100 pounds and we were waiting til after the first of the year to try the whole baby thing until after I talk with my doctor. But for the past 2 months I have been feeling strange. It has started with mood swings that usually lasted one week out of every month to now it has been consistant for the past 2 maybe 3 months. For the past month I have been feeling movement. It was sporadic at first that I dismissed as a spasm and now has been a daily thing for the past week and I feel it several times a day. Its little thumps and like this roll. Ive taken 2 pregnancy tests and both have come back negative. I feel this sort of bloated or fullness feeling right in the center of my abdomen like there’s a small ball in there and it all feels tight. I feel like Ive gained weight but not because of my eating habits. Now I have this fatigue around early afternoon that hits me like a ton of bricks. Ive never been pregnant before and Im 38 so Im clueless. I do have an apt next week. Just wondering can the mirena affect a pregnancy test?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    An iud will not affect the results of a pregnancy test. If you feel that you are pregnant, you need to see a doctor right away though because an iud will interfere with the fetuses growth. It’s not very likely that you are pregnant, but you might want to visit your doctor for a checkup to find out why you are feeling the sensations that you are.

  • Melissa James Black

    I do have an apt for this coming Thurs. It just doesn’t make sense how that my stomach is pooching out practically overnight and that Im feeling these movements and that they have been getting stronger and more frequent. Im not in any pain so it is a bit of a mystery. I have read many stories of women who were pregnant on Mirena and had negative pregnancy tests. So I guess I wont get any real answers until I see my doctor. Just all very weird.

  • Tabitha Zuver

    Is it possible to get pregnant only on BC? The OBG-N told me that when he put me on BC and I’m still confused by it

  • Shyla Braye

    I’m going through the same thing. Except me and my boyfriend had sex 3 months ago and nothing about the way I’m eating has changed and it looks like I’m starting to show already but I keep getting negative tests , my breasts hurt a lot and I feel sick but can’t throw up

  • Shyla Braye

    I thought I had a miscarriage last month.. I am now starting to show but still getting negative tests

  • Shyla Braye

    Hi , I think I might be 3 months pregnant and starting to show but I keep getting negative tests could I be pregnant? This would be my first baby as I am only 16. I don’t really have any symptoms. Could I be pregnang?

  • Amanda Weldon

    So I haven’t had a period for almost going on the past 3 months, I feel kicking and rolling and am currently on methadone I’ve had two daughters before and never got positive tests until six months could this be the reason and could there really be a little one inside me. Please help?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    If you have that type of history, you really need to go to your doctor and have him to an ultrasound. You need to make sure that methadone is safe to take while pregnant.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    If you keep having negative tests, you probably are not pregnant. But if you really think you are, you need to go to a clinic and see what they say.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    It’s not likely but it is possible. No form of contraception is 100%. The only thing that will make sure you don’t get pregnant is abstinence.

    I’m three weeks late. I’ve been pregnant before but had a miscarriage I’ve only had one period since the miscarriage and my breast hurt very badly and from time to time I feel sick but am also hungry a lot. I’ve taken four pregnancy tests but they are all negative. Could I still be pregnant?

  • Natasha

    Ok I’ve just had my implant taken out after 3 has it was about to expire,for the pass 2 weeks I have been eating like a manic and my belly has expanded like when u pregnant with both my children,I’m 29 and have 2 kids,I’ve been to the gp and clinic and all test have come back negative,which is confusing because my belly has never been like this except when I was pregnant and I’ve always been thin even whist pregnant,had blood test today to see if I am as they don’t understand why my belly looks pregnant,could I possibly be having a ectopic pregnancy?

  • hay93

    I had a late period on 31st august and tests are saying negative. How much longer should I wait to try test again?. I’ve been a little moody and really tired lately sleeping mostly all day. Could I be pregnant ?

  • chels

    I’m suppose to start my period today but have not. i may be stressing to much about it i took a hpt this morning it was negative. i was pregnant before and felt this same way. boobs are extremely sore and numb and I’m hungry and sleeping a lot. coulf i have taken test to.early what should i do?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    You really should see your doctor if your cycle has changed so drastically and the tests are coming back not pregnant.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Well, if you haven’t had a period, then the possibility that you are pregnant is there even if the tests come back negative. It could also be that your body is trying to regain hormonal balance after your miscarriage and things are just a bit out of whack at the moment. If you are concerned, you may want to contact your doctor.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    It could just be your body’s reaction to trying to regain it’s normal hormonal balance after removing the birth control. What did your doctor say?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    If you had a period, but later than normal, it could be that you had a very early miscarriage. The symptoms you are having could be your body trying to clear the hormones that had built up before your period arrived.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    It’s possible that you took the test too early, though testing the day you are supposed to start your period usually gives accurate results. It could be that you just have a hormonal imbalance that is causing you to feel odd.

  • Samii

    Hi, I think I may be pregnant. For the past two Sundays I’ve been getting nauseous, irregular bowel movements and throwing up. Lasts around 6 hours, during this time the only thing that gives me a break from being sick on the 6 hours is when I have a shower and let the water run over my belly.. Afterwards I feel fine. I’ve put on weight. My stomach is getting rounder (I usually have a very flat tight stomach). I’ve been getting lower abdominal cramps every so often. I noticed these symptoms two months ago and have had unusual periods since. I have gone to the doctors and they think I’m pregnant but all the urine tests come back negative. Could I still be pregnant?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    It’s possible but the only way to tell now if the pregnancy tests keep coming back negative is to have your doctor give you an ultrasound to confirm,.

  • debbie

    My daughter had artificial insemination back in July she has had a light period since even though they said at the clinic it would be heavy she has done 2 clear blue tests both negative but she has been sick and is constantly nauseous and keeps going to the loo even in the night what do we think?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    It sounds like something may be going on, but it would be best to contact the doctors who did the artificial insemination to find out what they think.

  • Me

    I know this is weird but I am really worried. So, for about last 2months I am feeling really tired and sleepy. Last month I got my period few days earlier which NEVER happened before (I always get my period 3-4days later). It was shorter than usual (2-3days) and I had less blood than usual. Week later I started feeling nauseous. I would wake up in the middle of the night nauseous having mild chills all over my body. Than I started feeling not tired and sleepy but EXHAUSTED! (I was on a long trip with my fiance so I thought I was just being tired of driving and walking all day long). But every day since then I felt the same. I love eating but this time I had some kind of aversion to food which is so unusual for me. I was hungry all the time but I lost my appetite probably because I was nauseous and few times I had a strong urge to threw up that I could barely stand that. I had to pee all the time. My breast were really sore. A lot of people thought I was pregnant. I had my nose bleeding and I was feeling like I am sick, but I wasn’t. My discharge wasn’t like usual, I had it more than regularly. When we came back from the trip I was feeling dizzy and threw up few times. And then I got my period and this time it was more unusual than last time. I got it earlier than usual, first it was pinkish, it wasn’t like blood at all, then next day it was lighter red than usual and I had just one or two pads all day long(usually I change at least 6 pads). Next day it was similar like the first day. And I wasn’t in any pain like I am regularly. But I was sure I wasn’t pregnant since I got period, so I went to take blood test to see If everything is ok with me because my doctor thought I was anemic but my blood results were excellent! Then I took pregnancy test in the afternoon and it was negative. I probably wouldn’t think that I am pregnant anymore, but I still feel really tired and nauseous, I have to pee every second, my back hearts, I am hungry all the time and I still cannot sleep well, I even woke up once feeling nauseous and for the past 5-6days I have constipation and sometimes diarrhea. Is there any possible way that I might be pregnant since I have red that a lot of women had similar experiences like I did and they ended up being pregnant. Not to mention mood swings, I cry like a baby, I am really nervous and sometimes anxious and all the others symptoms of pregnancy except that I got really unusual period and urine test was negative. Since I got my period I haven’t talked to my doctor about a possibility of pregnancy and she said I am just tired because of the trip. Please let me know what you think.

  • monika

    5 days late still no period tests keeps saying negatives can I still be with child or am I going to get my period?

  • Me

    So what happened?

  • Me

    So did you found out?

  • Me

    I am so interesting what happened next.. Are you really pregnant?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    I think you really need to address all your symptoms with your doctor. They did blood work, but did they test you for a uti? A lot of the symptoms you are having are similar to those that you could have with a uti.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    That’s hard to say. There are lots of reasons you might have a late period. Until you finally start your period, you may want to treat your self as if you are pregnant just in case.

    I have pcod and my period often miss for 2-3 months. I got my last period in july and not yet again. But this time i am having some indications like that of pregnancy. Can i do test now for any positive results? I mean after probable 3 months?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Well, you can try, but due to the fact that you don’t have regular cycles, it is hard to pinpoint when you ovulated. If you are having pregnancy like symptoms, I’d say test. If you get a negative, get in touch with your doctor to see if they can figure out why you are having the symptoms that you are.

  • sky

    Can any help I had sex the start Aug got a period for 3 days last week in Aug done 2 test said negative and hospital done one as well that was negative no period since Aug but I only found out I’ve high grade abnormal cells with lower back and pelvic pain could this be why I’m not getting a period

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    I’m not sure what you mean by “I’ve high grade abnormal cells” Does that mean you have some sort of infection? If so, then that could account for you missing your period.

  • klove

    I was she to get my depo shot the end of July. I didn’t get it. It’s now mid to end October and I still haven’t had a period. I don’t feel pregnant and my husband thinks I am. I’ve taken quite a few hpt and they’re all negative. However,I have gained weight, boobies are tender and a little bigger, tired a lot, hungry all the time. Not she if he’s right or if my af is on its way. Waiting is hard. What do you think?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Pregnancy is always possible if you are having unprotected sex. You might want to visit your doctor to find out why your periods have not returned. If you aren’t pregnant, it sounds like your body has a major hormonal imbalance happening.

  • Sam

    Did you take blood tests with negative results before reaching five months, or just HPTs?

  • kedra

    I had been on depo since may and had a due date on august 27 and missed my shot, then on October 28 I started spotting brown blood then October 31 it because red , but stop on November 2, 2014, could I be pregnant?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    You have too many variables to consider to make a good guess. When was your period due? Were you spotting when your period should have been there? Did you have unprotected sex when you were ovulating? Did you take a pregnancy test? Basically, it’s possible but without all the details, it isn’t possible to guess. It could be that your body is trying to regain it’s hormonal balance and you had breakthrough bleeding due to that.

    I have been having pregnancy symptoms for a few months now. Excessive weight gain (which Ive always struggled to gain weight), tender breasts, exhaustion, nausea, sensitive to smells, food cravings, cramping at random times etc.. My stomach looks like I could be pregnant and my boobs wont stop growing. Im 24years old. I’ve been on birth control, though Ive missed a day or two in prior months so its possible I am pregnant. However I still get a period each month, its just much lighter the past few months and I havent had as much cramping during and it isnt as painful of cramping. The blood is usually a brownish color, occasionally light pink. Im still taking birth control. Any test I take is negative. I’m starting to feel completely crazy. Any advice?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    If you have a history of pregnancy tests not working, then you might want to try and convince your doctor to give you an ultrasound, Sounds like you might need to find a new doctor if your doctor will not listen to you.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    You might want to talk to your doctor about your symptoms. They do sound like pregnancy ones, but it could be that your body isn’t handling the hormonal birth control very well.

    Hey all. Got a lot on my mind. I had my LMP on 8th August, the second one after the birth if my son who was born 8 July last year. I started feeling sick in September and was diagnosed with diabetes. Started off with the meds but was still feeling funny, nauseous and light headed. I did a couple of test in Sept one had a faint +ve line and the other was -ve. Symptoms persisted and I did some more last week(November), one negative, the other with a faint +ve lie, and the last definitely positive. Interestingly, my sugar level is now normal and I am not on any medication,and even the nausea is subsiding. I cant get to the hospital now as I am in a quarantined area because of Ebola but I just need to know how far gone and if I should ask for any medication now. I have headache most of the time and feel so tired. Also was my diabetes gestational or what as even though I am not taking any medication it is within normal levels for more than a month now.

  • Katie May

    I’m irregular and always have been ive been on bc for 5 yrs and eventually this yr it was regular. For 3 straight months I was having a normal 30 day cycle. In October I was ovulating my period ended Sept 19 but I started work. I spotted a little bit thought my period had started but nope false alarm. I have taken so many tests especially after my mother in law asked me after I was pregnant bc I had been so tired and emotional. I mean I was passing out in the car and slept from 7:30pm-5:30pm the next day which is abnormal for me. Ive gained weight and even started craving pickles and chocolate but im weird like that too. I have breast tenderness and im super moody like yesterday I started bawling my eyes out for no reason just in the middle of dancing with my husband. Im so worried. Any opinions? Hopefully its not a false pregnancy. Ive missed my period for 2 months already.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Have you gone to see your doctor about this? Definitely sounds like pregnancy symptoms, but it could be something else going on with your system if you are really not pregnant.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Have you continued to take pregnancy tests? If you got a positive, the test picked up the pregnancy hormone. If you only got the one positive, it could be a sign that you had a very early miscarriage.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Chances are you are pregnant and you were testing too early for the negative tests your received.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    It could be you just had something going on with your system that caused a slight disruption in your cycle. Illness, change in work schedule or exercise intensity can cause cycle changes.

  • luluround2

    I was 7 days late with sore nips so I tested, bfn and then thought a flo came but it was very light and on and off for two days which was unusual. My breasts and nipples got sorer and sorer starting the day AFTER that bleeding ended as well as short waves of nausea started. They still are very very very sore. Yesterday, I took a test and it was faintly positive within seconds – But, I used another test with the same urine and there was no line, very white, bfn. Had BFN after BFN since but breasts and nips still so sore, tired, heartburn and nausea. I feel more pregnant now than when I actually was 6 mos ago before a 6 week miscarriage. Plus I have had a baby before years ago. What is your opinion?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    If you keep taking the clear blue tests, do they come back positive? You might want to contact your doctor to get a blood test done to find out what your hcg numbers are.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    It sounds like you might be pregnant but you might want to go and see a doctor to explain your symptoms and see what a blood test reveals.

  • luluround2

    I have an appt next week, Dec 18th 2014, but I do have a fibroid so even if sh does a pelvic she won’t be able to tell. I heard about the “hook affect” but insure. My symptoms are stronger w/sore breasts, waves of nausea after/during eating, heartburn which is crazy for me, and very bloated. Just want to feel normal again especially if not preggers. I will keep in touch. :0)

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    You would have to have really high hcg levels to experience a false negative due to the hook effect. If it is the hook effect, you can test it out yourself. Collect your urine and dilute it with some water. That will dilute the level of hcg and the test should be able to pick up on it. Good luck!

    Unless you get your period or a doctor confirms that you are not pregnant, the chance of pregnancy is always there.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    The chance of pregnancy is always there if you had unprotected sex unless you get your period or a doctor confirms that you are not pregnant, .

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    You really should talk to your doctor to find out why you aren’t having a period. Besides pregnancy, there are other reasons (usually hormone imbalance related) that can cause your period to stop.

  • Megan

    Hi everyone. So I haven’t had my period in 2 months now and I’m having all the pregnancy syymtoms. But I have taken nine test. Only 3 were negative. What should I do?

  • _jamie40

    I’ve been having bad headaches and a really bad stomach ache. I feel like I’m pregnant but not sure. I took some pregnancy tests but they all came back negative. I’ve been sleeping more and been having nausea but haven’t thrown up yet. I also been having back pain and leg cramps. I don’t know whats been going on with me but I’ve been feeling really sick. And I also have to pee more and my boobs feel sore time to time. I’ve also had a short period last month and haven’t had a period this month.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Ummm…so 6 were positive? You should go see a doctor and get a blood test to confirm that you are pregnant.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    If the tests keep coming back negative then I would guess that you are not pregnant, but have something else going on with your system that is causing your cycle to be off this month. Have you see a doctor yet about this? A blood test should be able to see how much hcg is present in your blood if you are pregnant.

  • Worried

    Im 17 and on depo but im always tired and have mild cramping the kind you get before a period my sides are hurting also im having headaches and I get hot flashes and get light headed a lot and when I lay down I get heart burn and have to pee and I havent been feeling myself I took a cheap pregnancy test like a few days after these symptoms it showed negative I feel like im getting bigger though its been like a month now should I test again or no?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    You can, but chances are you are just having a reaction to the birth control. How many times have you had the shot?

  • wazine

    im delayed of almost a month already and took four at-home pregnancy test and all is negative. i took the test in different days. i have my monthly period every month.i experience many symptoms of being pregnant. i dont know if im pregnant or not.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    You should probably go see a doctor at this point to get checked out.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    It really depends on what birth control you are on and if it stops ovulation. It also depends on where in your cycle you had unprotected sex. The only way to find out at this point is to wait until your period is due to arrive and test then.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    If the tests are negative but you are having pregnancy like symptoms, you should really go and see a doctor about it.

  • Janella

    I had my period last nov 2… After 2 weeks i had spotting and lasts for 4 days… I took pt 3 times but it says its negative… Now i still dont have my period… Could i be pregnant?? Im so confused…

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Do you typically have a normal 28 day cycle? If you do, then you should have had your period in Dec at the beginning. Until you do, there is always the possibility that you are pregnant, until a doctor definitively says you are not.

  • Janella

    Well my normal for me was 35 day cycle.. Cos i usually late for like 1 week…I was just confused why i had spotting after 2 weeks after i had period…

  • Reyna

    Hi I am 16 years
    I used the pregnancy test yesterday and the results came out negative I haven’t had my period I am 8 days late I had sex (unprotected) on Dec 10 its been 3 weeks
    I’ve been eating alot every 15 min peeing alot and sleeping more what can I do can some one help me out

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Typically when you have that it is due to ovulation bleeding, which is normal for some women. Considering you have longer cycles, that may not have been the reason for you. It could be that you have a hormone imbalance that is causing breakthrough bleeding.

  • Sally

    Sooo she’s like two. Your daughter. So annoying!

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Unfortunately, if you have a normal 28 day cycle you could have been ovulating around the time you had sex. There is a chance you are pregnant even if the test is negative. Hopefully you will get your period soon.

  • Mia

    Hello I am now 4 months late, last period was August 24th. My doctor put me on birth control with hopes of my period starting, if nothing happens she is concerned something is wrong. Possibly cysts she suspects. Numerous negative urine tests . My stomach is very bloated and distended. I have ibs but ibs bloating builds up during the day after food intake, my stomach is bloated 24/7, had ibs for 6 years so I know symptoms. She has ordered an ultrasound so now I wait…. I’m very concerned and scared. I’ve also been feeling fluttering, felt movement with my daughter at 13 weeks and have a tilted uterus so I know its possible. I am sleep deprived and stressed from my 8 month old so I wonder if that’s taking a toll on my body. Just wanted to vent and see if maybe had a similar situation? Thanks!

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    I am sorry you are so stressed out :( Hopefully the ultrasound will give you some answers. If you aren’t pregnant, it could be that you have PCOS that is causing your cycle to be missing. Good luck getting answers that will help relieve some of your stress. (You’ve got an 8 month old so that stress will still be there :D )

  • Shannon

    I’m 32 yrs. old. I haven’t period 6 weeks! I took 3 times are negative! Today, I have medium brownish spot. Can I be pregnant? We try getting pregnancy! :(

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    If you normally had periods every month then you might be pregnant. But if you had irregular periods, you could have a hormone imbalance that is throwing your cycle off. If your period doesn’t arrive soon, you might want to go get checked out by your doctor.

  • Yayatiti

    I never get my period it’s rare when I do but my nipples have been very sore and hard and I’m tired all day took a home test and negative results

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    It sounds like you should go and see a doctor if you are trying to get pregnant. Lack of a period will greatly reduce your chances of conceiving.

  • Krys

    Hi my partner and I tried having a baby early sept and I never got my period that whole month in September but in October, November, and December I’ve had literally a two day period and it’s not heavy what’s so ever but test keep coming out negative but my belly is growing. Before this my period had always been regular and 4-5 days idk what to do? My stomach also feels weird like moving but i don’t know if it’s just me because I wanted it so bad. Please help me figure this out.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Have you been to a doctor about this? By this time, if you are pregnant, they should be able to tell with an examination.

  • Krys

    I went to the e.r yesterday because I swear we felt a kick but my urine test still came out negative but I made a appt with my gyno next week. It’s just so crazy because I been nauseous and just having symptoms of pregnancy but negative test. Idk but I feel crazy.

  • Sam

    Hi.. So my story is confusing.. I Was on birth control for 5 yrs on and off. My bf and I had sex dec 12,13,14,15 all unprotected! I’m very bad at taking the pill during that time I missed the pill by 2-3 days. We broke up a week and a half later and I decided to stop the BC. About 2 weeks later I started to feel sick, dizzy, nausea, very sleepy, stomach pains, cramps, horrible headaches, sensitive nipples/boobs,emotional,back pain . So yesterday jan 7th I took a pregnancy test and it came out negative. Are all my symptoms from stopping BC? Did I test too soon? I feel crazy!! I feel pregnant but tests say I’m not. Plus I have huge baby fever. Help anyone? Plus the depression of the break up and heating him tell me I’m preg drives me insane.

  • Brianna register Bri

    Thanks so much for this information because I took a pregnancy test and it said positive and I had a period. After having my period my doctor did another pregnancy test and said it was negative and maybe I had a miscarriage cause my hcg levels were low but, I still feel pregnant I feel movements and I’m going for an ultrasound Wednesday so hopefully I find out then. Because they have me thinking I have miscarried my baby.

  • lindsey

    i have been completely stressed lately I was supposed to get my period five days ago and have taken about five test all negative even went to the doctor for a pee test. But I still missed my period and been having all the pregnancy symptoms I don’t know what to do. I know with my son I took test after test all negative then one day I was feeling sick went to the doctor and she told me I was pregnant when I went to the OBGYN they told me I was around 14 weeks pregnant but when I tested just 12/11 weeks earlier It showed up negative is it possible my body keeps low HCG levels when I am pregnant or that HPT don’t work for me someone please HELP me…..

  • lindsey

    Can Anyone help me ??

  • Sam

    I just retested jan 9th (today) it said no! Sucks these symptoms don’t go away. Anyone? Advice? Opinion? Is it symptoms from stopping BC?

  • Jade atkins

    I’ve been on the pill for 4months now and keep missing my pill from time to time. This past week I’ve had tender breasts to the point where I am struggling to get dressed and sleep, they are really sore and I’m in a lot of discomfort. I have also had some stomach ache and back pain. I have taken some home pregnancy test this week and all said negitive. Why am I showing signs of pregnancy? Please help

  • Jade Simone Atkins

    How many have you done? Try going to the doctor explain your showing symptoms and tell them you’ve taken a home test but shown negative an ask for a blood test

  • Sam

    Hi.. I’ve done 2 tests! Jan 7 and today Jan 9. I stopped taking BC so the symptoms may just be because of that. Its frustrating these symptoms don’t go away!

  • Sam

    You could be having a reaction to the BC! Even thought you have 4 months on it your bodies reaction to it can change. It’s happened to me! I’ve been one a pill for months even years and there’s a point where my body didn’t accept it anymore. You could be having symptoms of being on BC. But yet again they are symptoms of pregnancy. I’m the same way right now:(

  • Jade Simone Atkins

    I’d go see your GP ask for a blood test to be on the safe side

  • Dyslexichearts

    Hi.

    I had IVF in December, my original test date was 2 January. I tested on 1st January with Clearblue Digital and it said Pregnant 1-2 weeks. Took same test the next day, same result. But on 4 Jan, I did another and it said Not Pregnant, until now ( 10 Jan), I was thinking I miscarried but have not had a bleed yet. I cracked open the digi test and there were faint lines where the result lines should be. Could I still be pregnant? My last period was 3 Dec, I normally have 35 day cycle. I am due for ultrasound on 26 January, but I can’t wait. If I miscarried, should I not have bleed already by this time? Thanks.

  • Dyslexichearts

    I was hoping I am one of those women whose hcg levels are low but can go on to have successful pregnancies. I am still taking 8 mg progynova a day and Crinone Gel every night. I am really praying hard for this to be successful. Our local clinic doesn’t do bloodwork so that’s really crap and have to wait for the fertility clinic’s ultrasound to find out.

  • 3hree

    No period December, still no period now! Unusual, Ive been having light pink discharge now and again and I’ve seen a dark pink almost red discharge I could definitely tell it wasn’t a period! Negative pregnancy tests, more recently a week ago. Cramping on and off! Kinda scared to go see my doctor, dont know what to expect to hear! I only have one tube! November, Oct, S, A, J, July, normal periods. My husband and i have baby hopes, but I don’t think I can have anymore kids bc I only have one tube.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Unfortunately, there is no way to really tell what is going on. Coming off birth control can cause all the symptoms you are having but so can pregnancy. The unprotected sex and missing some pills can definitely lead to pregnancy. When was your period supposed to happen? If you test around that time, you should get accurate results with a pregnancy test.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    You might want to address with with your obgyn. Considering your history of not getting positive tests, the doctor should be able to help you figure out if you are indeed pregnant.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Unfortunately, there isn’t much I can say to make it better for you. It could be that your system is a bit off if you were pregnant and that it could take a little longer for your period to begin. Having said that, it is possible that you have a slow grower that is just taking it’s time to have steady hcg levels.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    You can definitely have a baby with only one tube as you have ovaries on both sides. As long as there is no blockage preventing the egg from traveling to the uterus, it is possible. You might want to go and see your doctor to discuss your concerns.

  • Sam

    Normally while on the pill it would be on the 1st. But when I got off the pill I had light bleeding for 2 days on dec 26-28 so I thought maybe that was my period. But symptoms continue. I took 2 pregnancy test one on the 7th and 9th.. Both negative. What do you think?

  • Nikki

    I have had Essure for almost 4yrs now..this is the first time I have gone 3 months without a period. I have taken 3 pregnancy tests and all came back negative… I’m very fertile. My boobs are sore, I feel like I’m cramping, I’m always crabby, and I’m always tired…what should I do??????

  • Hales

    I had unprotected sex on Jan. 10th, and my boyfriend came. I had had a period on Jan 1-Jan 7th. I took the day after pill on Jan 11th. But now, I think I have started another period now. I started bleeding on the 18th, and it didn’t seem like a period. No clots, and very lightly colored blood. But now, two days later, there are clots and it’s darker in color. Why is this happening? Could I be pregnant?

  • Victoria

    I have mostly all symptoms of a pregnancy test, i waited 4 weeks and took it and it was still negative. I’m very confused. I have no clue whats going on with my body.

    hello, I have a normal 28 days cycle and this cycle I ovulated around day 20( kind of late) I ve been trying to get pregnant for 8 months now, and this is the first month, I miss my period. I did the ept test but came out negative at day 31( 3 days after missed period) I have some pregnancy symptoms, could I still be pregnant ? when should I test again?

  • claire 77

    Hi I’m 37 and I have regular 28 day cycles, me an my partner have sex 4 days a week. I had a early period which was light 1st day, heavy 2nd and only dark red/ brown last y, so lasted 3. I have had the nausea but not sick and ache in back and vaines very visible around nipples but no tenderness. I should of had my regular period 3 days ago but all negative tests. But feel pregnant, when should I test. Trying for 2 yrs. Thank you

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    So when was your period actually due?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Go and see your doctor. She should be able to confirm that these are just normal side effects of the birth control or perhaps change your birth control if these symptoms as too bothersome to you.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Not likely. It is most likely breakthrough bleeding due to the morning after pill. Your hormones are a bit out of balance. You should be able to take a test now if your period hasn’t arrived.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    You should probably go and discuss this with your doctor.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Until your period comes, there is always the possibility that you are pregnant. It could be that your period will be lengthened due to when you ovulated though. You a pregnancy test should work now for you.

  • claire 77

    I had that bleed on the 16 was not due a period til 22nd. Thanks for reply

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    I’d wait a couple of days and test again. If still negative at that time, you might want to see your doctor just to get checked out.

  • claire 77

    All my symptoms have gone, I have tested every day all negative I think it was a messed up period, just the symptoms were so weird even the flu symptoms in morning, I have regular cycles but pcos but no affects of it. I have Dr’s Monday but they are not helpful with me getting pregnant I wanted some meds to help but I haven’t had any. I’m not getting younger and scared of never getting pregnant.

  • Infernolynx

    So this was the first period I’ve missed. I’ve taken a pregnancy test when I was three days late for my period, then waited when the next week came along, I took it when I would normaly expect my period (which would be wensday) but both tests tested negative. I took them correctly, I’ve taken them before but I still have not gotten my period! During the time I was waiting for that time of the month, I got spottings along with a clear gooie pink discharge. So I’m still a little worried. I’m not getting cravings, or any “normal” pregnancy effects. But the two obvious things I’ve noticed is my lower stomach feeling tighter? And of course missing my period. Has anyone else had this same thing happen to them? And if you have, did you turn out pregnant or not?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    If your doctor doesn’t work with you for the PCOS then you might want to try herbal fertility supplements. You might do well with http://www.babyhopes.com/pcos-fertility-supplements.html It helps with the fertility, the problems caused by pcos and helps with egg quality.

  • claire 77

    I have tried conception tablets which didn’t help before, thank you anyway.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    How long were you taking them for? If you took the supplements for 3 full months and didn’t get the results you wanted maybe the doctor route is best for you. Also for your pcos, you really want to look into myo-inositol. If you look at the bottom of this page, http://www.babyhopes.com/pregnitude.html, you will see the scientific studies – they are very promising for helping women with pcos get pregnat.

  • Christine

    I am a week late and TTC. I have had 2 miscarriages, both very early- the last one being 2 months ago. I got my period after the last one right on time (28 days). Now this month I’m late with 2 negative pregnancy tests. I’m not under abnormal stress and after my last miscarriage they checked my thyroid which was normal so I’m not sure why I’m late. I emailed my doctor and she didn’t seem concerned. I am having some pregnancy symptoms but they could also be period symptoms. How long do I wait before I contact the doctor again? Before when I was pregnant I found out right at 4 weeks so is it safe to say I’m not pregnant having 2 negatives at around what would be 5 weeks?

    I need answers please..
    I wait a good 3 weeks before taking a pregnancy test. I had my period the very next day but it was lighter than my typical period? Does that mean anything?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Well, if you haven’t gotten your period, you can’t really say you aren’t pregnant even if you had positive tests previously. If you still haven’t gotten a period, you might want to go and see your doctor about it. There may be some tests that can be performed to see if you have a hormonal imbalance that is causing the delay.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    If you continue getting negative pregnancy test results, it is most likely just an odd period. Keep track of when your next one should start (about a month from when you saw this last one) and if you don’t get your period on time, you might want to go and visit your doctor to find out what might be causing the delays.

  • lyndseyw

    Hi vickie.. I need some advise, I missed my period on the 1st Feb done pregnancy tests from the 2nd of Feb they showed a dark line then a faded one I took a wee test on the 6th Feb an it was more accurate then later on I tried a clear blue which said I was pregnant I was 1-2 week’s on Sunday the 8th Feb I started getting brown spotting and also slight cramping that got worse into the night was told by the out of hrs doctor that I had to rest an take paracetamol. But today (Monday 9th feb ) I spoke with my own gp he told me to rest an it could be a lining of my period, take paracetamol and rest in bed. Later on it got worse like clotting an sharp pains. So to try an put my mind at rest I took another test that said negative but why would a more accurate test like clear blue tell me I was pregnant then do a wee crap test an it say I’m not pregnant. But I know you can have a period up until your 6 weeks till 3 months into a pregnancy??? It’s been so stress full an worrying. Because me an my fiance have wanted this baby for so long to have it took away… can you please help me with advice thank you..

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    If all the tests keep coming back negative, then it would seem that you have some sort of hormonal imbalance that is causing your period to not arrive. You might want to go and talk to your doctor about this.

    You should go checked out by your doctor.

    Chances are you aren’t pregnant if the tests come back negative. It could be that you are having perimenopause symptoms instead.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    It happens but it isn’t very common.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Maybe you need to go and visit your doctor to discuss your symptoms. Ultimately, a doctor will be the one to figure it out if the tests continue to be negative for you.

    Unfortunately, all you can do it visit your doctor so they can do examine you to find out if you are pregnant and if not, help you figure out what is going on with your system.

    Hello,

    My husband and i have been trying for a baby since around january 25th. We have had unprotected sex a lot during feb especially. I am just wondering what the chances are of being pregnant? I have been getting a lot of symptoms, but i have done 6 at home tests and they are negative. I am hoping we have done the tests to early. My periods are due on the 9/3/15 but i am not getting any of my pre menstrual symptoms (which is usually only a sore lower back). My tests were negative until i was 6 weeks with my first baby.

    I haven’t had my period in 3 months. I have every sign other than morning sickness. I gained two pounds. I always feel hungry. I have been cranky too. I don’t know if this is normal but I have irregular periods.

    Hi there. I have mirena IUD. I had surgery(diagnostic lap) on 1/14/2015 to look for endometriosis. I started what the Dr said would be my period on that day. It lasted 6 days. I had a morning of spotting Feb only on toilet paper. No other bleeding that month. According to my period tracker I am 27 day late. I had one negative home pregnancy test and then another test a week later one with a very faint, my eyes could be playing tricks on me, positive line at 11 days late. I took another pregnancy test two days ago from the dollar tree and again very faint line j almost thought it was negative. I’ve been beyond exhausted, appetite is ok, I want specific foods though, my bras that I just bought last month no longer fit cup wise… and I am very bloated no matter what I do. I’ve had lower back pain. Not a ton of cramping… just feeling way off. Could I be pregnant?

    Did your period arrive? If not, and you are still getting negative tests, I’d go and see your doctor considering you didn’t get a positive until 6 weeks with your first baby.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Are you going to the same doctor that you did with your other kids. If so, he should know that the tests don’t work well for you. It’s rare, but for some people, home pregnancy test just don’t work well.

    Have you taken a pregnancy test? You might want to talk to your doctor about your irregular cycles to try and figure out the cause if you aren’t pregnant.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    You definitely have the symptoms that would indicate that. You might want to visit your doctor to see if she can find out what is going on. If you aren’t pregnant, your symptoms could be because of a hormonal imbalance.

    In Mid December I felt the worse crapping and could lay on either side or my stomach for almost two weeks, I was having Lots of clear discharge I swore I was pregnant because I never felt anything so weird in my life, others were saying because of the discharge I was just having a painful ovulation… I had intercourse with my fiance before after and during that time frame, I ended up having my period about a week late and it was very heavy for 10 days… In January I only had light spotting, In Febuary No Period at all. Im waiting for March Period, Ive been testing monthly all negative, honestly I think I might have an etopic pregnancy i feel pressure and slight pain on my left side sometimes…Im just waiting for my period to come sucks not knowing.

    What did your doctor say about it? In addition to pregnancy, there are other issues that can cause the same type of symptoms as you are having.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    The atypical heavy bleeding could be a sign of an early miscarriage. Though the pain was not typical at all. You really go and visit your doctor to see if there is something going on that needs attention.

    Thank you, Im having simular feelings right now the cramping pain is in a different spot but im still in pain feels like my belly is trobbing..

    Hi, I jst wanted to share my experience I have a 6month year old son, and my husband and I wanted try for another child, I took pregnancy tests just before my period due date on the due date and day after and all were negative, but I was late so I took a test a week later and it came up positive 1-2 weeks so false negatives can happen x

    Unfortunately, with the conditions you have, it will be more difficult for you to get pregnant. If you keep getting negative tests, you are probably not pregnant this month. The conditions you have can cause an imbalance of hormones in your system and if you have a thickened endometrium, your estrogen could be out of balance. In order to help figure out when you are ovulating, you might want to take ovulation tests to pinpoint ovulation.

    I had my implant out on the 6th of feb this year and ive been having unprotected sex with my partner every day even when ive been ovulating. ive been having signs that im pregnant like feeling sick but it wont come up, tired all the time always going the toilet my belly is going into a bump shape but ive take tests and they come back negative. what should I do?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    You should probably go and see your doctor. Depo is very reliable, but the side effects can be very similar to what you are experiencing. You might want to consider changing the type of birth control you are using. You can also get the doctor to give you a blood test just to make sure you aren’t pregnant.

  • dianne

    but my obygne told me that i can still be pregnant? is there even a slightest chance? :( please. i want a baby.

  • dianne

  • mo

    I was rapped on December but I had sex with my boyfriend on January , I had my period in those two months and they said im 7 weeks pregnant , a few days ago I had an ultra sound and was told I’m 14 weeks pregnant. What do I do ? I’m worried and terrified

  • Hope

    My period never came but i did start bleeding four day after they were due which never happens and it was different to my normal period, a lot lighter and different colour to normal. Did a test on saturday and it was negative but i would have only been 6 weeks on monday. confused.

    Hi i was due to have my depo injection in October but we have decided to try for another baby. I’m feeling pregnant atm It feels as though I could be about 4 months movement in my belly can’t get comfy back ache and nausea on and off and awful heartburn just like with my last but I have had two negative tests should I go to see the doctor?

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    You really need to have the conversation with your doctor about this. If your doctor said pregnancy was a possibility, then listen to his advice.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    At two weeks late you wouldn’t be feeling fetal movement just yet. The fetus would be way too small. You might want to go get checked out by your doctor to find out what is going on if you keep getting negative results and don’t get your period.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    Unfortunately, with the variation of dates, it is hard to determine when the baby was conceived. The only way to tell for sure would be to wait until after the baby is born and do a paternity test with your boyfriend if he is willing. :( I am sorry you are in this horrible situation.

  • http://www.babyhopes.com/ Vickie B.

    You should go see the doctor if you are having pregnancy like symptoms. If your period is missing, then they can do tests to see if you are pregnant.
