I took another test

I took another pregnancy test this morning, it came out negative. I'm supposed to start my period tommorow. Wouldn't by now it would have showed up correctly if I was preg? I bought a test that said you can test early and was 84% accurate. Maybe I should wait another few days. I'm tired of not knowing. It is on my mind night and day am I or not pregnant? I should have waited to test until my period was late but I was so anxious. Well I will see if I start tommorow. If not should I test sunday or wait three or four days?

Re: I took another test

When I first suspected I might be pregnant, I bought two brands of those "early" tests that you can take a few days before your period. None of them came back positive until a day after my period was supposed to start. But I suspect that the reason for that, in my case, is because I got pregnant while on the pill, so I wasn't exactly sure what my "real" cycle was, and wasn't clear how many DPO I was...

I think that if your period doesn't start this weekend, take another one Monday or Tuesday! Best wishes to you! ****Baby dust****

should i go ahead and test again

Well I didn't start my period today. I took a hpt on friday would it be stupid to take another test tommorow since my test was neg. friday. Very anxious to know if I am pregnant. What if I use first urine in the morning? Or should I wait until at least Monday.

2 days late and scared to take test

Well I am now 2 days late on my period. I took a test on friday and it was neg. Could it have been wrong? The test stated that it was an early detection of hcg so how could it be wrong? It amazes me that I took 2 test before I missed my period, and now that I have missed I'm scared to take one. I have been feeling like I am going to start AF any min. but actually I have been thinking that since the day I might have conceived. I know that there is a very good chance I'm pregnant because I had unprotected sex while ovulating. In early pregnancy does anyone else feel like they are going to start AF? Also has anyone else taken a hpt and got a neg. result even when they were pregnant? How long should I wait until I take the test again to get an acurate result? Does anyone else hate taking pregnancy test and waiting for those little lines that determine the rest of your life? Sorry so many questions, it's just my whole life can change with whatever result I get from that stupid little test. Thank you for reading.

Re: 2 days late and scared to take test

Hi
many people get AF signs when PG. sounds like there is a chance for you now.
with my last PG 2 tests came back neg when I was 3 months pos. BUT I was on the DEPO PROVERA bc shot and I think it messed up my results but not for sure.

I would wait 1 or 2 days and take another first morning when you wake up.

if it is still neg and you are worried call your doc and have them do a blood test they are more acurate and they should do one since your period is late.
are you ever late any other time?
under more stress latley?
new meds.?
sometimes these things can factor in on periods.

GOOD LUCK ON WHAT YOU WISH FOR

Re: 2 days late and scared to take test

Thank you for your reply. You are definelty right that so many things can factor into the reason a woman might miss her period, but I am not usually late. For some reason I feel like I am pregnant. To be honest I am not ready for a baby but would welcome one with open arms. On one hand I want my period to start, but there is something inside of me that says its not going to maybe I actually want to be pregnant. I might sound stupid but I'm not sure what I want. I know that the first thing I need to do is find out for sure. If I don't start AF, maybe I will take another hpt on Jan.1. What a great way to start off the New Year.

Re: 2 days late and scared to take test

It depends also on what test you took for the test to give you the correct results . I looked up on the internet and I was surpried to find out that about 90% of the pg test that are called early (before your period is even due) PG test does not work on 50% of women because it goes according to your hcg levels and some women do not produce hcg at high levels fast. Thats why you should test the day after you missed your period or buy the test that read 20 to 25 hcg levels. These test are like Aimstream and Confirm 1 Step. There are a few more but not many. E.P.T. test 40 hcg the rest are 50 and 100hcg. What PG test did you use? IF you are now 2 days late it is safe to test now. You should get an accurate reading. If you are Pg CONGRADULATIONS and if the test comes back neg. and AF still has not come I would call my Dr. and get a blood test. For example: my sister took that wal-mart test and it showed neg. and 4 hrs later she took a E.P.T and it showed pos. So it can also be the test you are using and the fact you took the test on the day you were due for AF. GOOD LUCK girl and let us know. BABY DUST to you!!!!!!!!!!

Re: 2 days late and scared to take test

The hpt test I took was clearblue easy and said that it was 84%accurate when testing one day before you miss your period. It amazes me that someone can take one test and get a neg. and take another test 4 hours later and get a positive. Thanks for giving me that info., and if I don't start I will definetly buy confirm 1 step.

Re: 2 days late and scared to take test

What kind of symtoms are you having if any? I am just wondering. By the way you can test any time of day, but for best results you should obstain from liquids and urination for about 3 to 4 hours so the levels will not be diluted when you test.
I am due for AF on New Years but I am not going to test until Friday.

Re: 2 days late and scared to take test

I more thing clear blue easy reads hcg when it reaches 50 so by testing on the day of your period the hcg in your body is not high enough to pick up. The hcg douls evry 2 to 3 days so thats why you should test with this pregnancy test the day after you missed your period. I will give you a web to look up and you can find out what PG test are the best to take when wanting to find out even a day before your period is due. The web page is:
fertilityplus.org/faq/hpt.html
this sight also has questions and answers on it that answer alot of concerns you may have it answered mine Good luck again!!!!!!!!!!

Re: 2 days late and scared to take test

For the last week I have been very bloated and have felt cramps like I am going to start AF. Sometimes I feel a little nausea (but i also wonder if It is in my head). I don't know if this is a sign but for some odd reason I am out of breath alot. I know that can happen later in pregnancy but can it now? I am extremly fatigued, I can sleep for hours yet still feel tired. One more odd thing keeps happening I keep getting flushed like my face and my chest, and I don't know if that is a sign either. Maybe it is all in my head. I will see. Have you mandyc911 had any of these symptoms?

Re: 2 days late and scared to take test

Well Dayana,

Before I found out for sure I was pg, I had the exact same symptoms you are having. Even the hard time to catch breath and feel shortness of breath a lot. Yes it could be all in your head too, but who knows. Tests have definitely failed many times. Well let us know what happens, o.k.

God bless,

Re: 2 days late and scared to take test

The only symtom I am having is tender breast and moodiness. I feel like AF might be coming my way. When I got PG for my son 9 years ago I had no signs whatsoever. Actually I found out I was PG when I was 3 months. I forgot I was supposed to have a period for a little while. I don't know if you remember in 1992 Hurricane Andrew hit Florida and Louisiana hard. Well we lost everything in the storm and I was distracted and forgot my dates and really didn't think about all that until my sister brought it to my attention and I realized I had missed 2 periods. With my daughter I had extreme constipation and started with nausea about 2 weeks after I found out I was pregnant. However according to some of the things I have read on symtoms you are having them for sure. Grant it it could be in your head but fatique is not a sign of AF. I don't know about being flushed and all but I am so curious if you tested or not. I am anxious to know. I am waiting for AF on the first of Jan. I am having diarrhea and I don't know if that is a symtom or not. When I got PG for my daughter I only had that 1 symtom so all I know is what I have read. If you are anyone knows I would like to know also just cause. I hope I get PG soon cause my children are now 11 and 9 and I don't want to be trying for years if you know what I mean. Please write back I am anxious to hear from you
