Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

I tested on Sunday with a BFN and AF is actually due tomorrow -- could I have just tested too early?

Re: I tested on Sunday with a BFN and AF is actually due tomorrow -- could I have just tested too early?

The Bump Expert

Good question -- pregnancy test timing is tricky. Home pregnancy tests detect the presence of a pregnancy hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) in urine. During the first few weeks of pregnancy, the level of hCG in the urine increases rapidly, doubling every 2 to 3 days! That’s why you may have greater luck with an HPT if you wait until after you miss your period. The accuracy also varies because your menstrual and ovulation cycle can fluctuate from month to month. Plus, the exact day the fertilized egg implants can vary. Until implantation occurs and the placenta starts to develop, there is no hCG to be detected. Finally, each home pregnancy test kit has a different sensitivity to hCG.

So while it’s true that some HPTs can detect hCG up to four or five days before a missed period, it doesn’t work for everyone! The FIRST RESPONSE Early Result Pregnancy Test, for example, can be used as early as four days before you expect your period. But when used at that time, only 69% of pregnant women will test positively. That means 31% will get a false negative! Once your period is actually late, the result will be 99% accurate. Meaning, no second guessing and (hopefully) lots of celebrating!

re: Q: Pregnancy Test Timeline?

Is one brand better than another?

sheilamatt2005 |

re: Q: Pregnancy Test Timeline?

I don't think brand matters that much, although each brand is made to detect different levels of hCG. I used different brands with both pregnancies (this time I'm just 3 weeks along) and got positive results both times about a week before my period was even due.

re: Q: Too Soon For Pregnancy Test?

if you're really concerned about being pregnant and OTC tests aren't giving you straight answers, try to get your doctor to order you a blood test. They detect hCG's much sooner and can actually tell you how little or how much hCG is present.

re: Q: Too Soon For Pregnancy Test?

I used Walmart's Equate brand, and it had no problems telling me I'm pregnant. :-) Of course, it was also a couple weeks after my period should have been.

rachelb823 |

re: Q: Too Soon For Pregnancy Test?

It depends on the timing of your specific body, not the brand of the test. I got a false negative 4 days before my expected period, and a positive on the day my period was due. If you want to be sure, wait until your period is late, and then confirm with a blood test at your doctor.

re: Q: Too Soon For Pregnancy Test?

i've been off birth control since the beginning of November, and wasn't taking it regularly right before than anyway. i've been nauseous so i tried a test and it was negative. is it too soon to already be pregnant? since i don't know WHEN my next period could be, could my test possibly have been a false negative?

amordemar |

re: Q: Too Soon For Pregnancy Test?

I have no idea when to test. My DD is 6 months old and I have not yet had a period; nor have I completely stopped nursing--in the process of weaning. I have been testing on Sunday mornings (which is expensive to test each week) and I had BFN this past Sunday. However, I am so incredibly nauseaus this week I keep hoping I'm pg and it was a false negative. Nonetheless, is it too soon to test again or should I wait for Sunday. Oh, it's important that I know if I'm pg asap because I had two mc due to low progesterone. I was able to have a successful pg with A LOT of progesterone.

re: Q: Too Soon For Pregnancy Test?

I have been off my bc pill since Dec. 8th and have not yet reviceved AF, should I take a HPT or just wait it out? It would be great to find out I'm prggers.

re: Q: Too Soon For Pregnancy Test?

Hi I am new to the blog, I had my last period start december 21/07 my husband and i have been trying since then, I am thinking i might be pregnant, is it too early to test this coming week?

miranygirl |

re: Q: Too Soon For Pregnancy Test?

Princess, you should just wait it out. When I stopped using BC, AF was very erratic, took a few months to become predictible. Wait until you miss your period a few days, then test.

Tommy*Girl |

re: Q: Too Soon For Pregnancy Test?

I am 10 days late Would it be too soon? I took a test over the weekend adn it was negative.

Andrea79 |

re: Q: Too Soon For Pregnancy Test?

My cycle was suppose to come on on the 12th and on the 15th I took a pregnacy test from Family Dollar and it was positive. I think you should always wait until you miss your period other wise you risk the chances of getting wron results.

felishamckay |

re: Q: Too Soon For Pregnancy Test?

What are the chances of a false positive...especially if I take more than one test and brand? I just wouldn't wnat my hopes up for nothing!

selsel29 |

re: Q: Too Soon For Pregnancy Test?

Does anyone know how soon you can get a postive reading with a blood test? I missed some of my pills (not on purpose I swear) about 2 weeks ago and I've been feeling really nauseated and worn out the past few days. My cycle isnt supposed to start until the monday after next.

Bsugrl1111 |

re: Q: Too Soon For Pregnancy Test?

I tested positive three times I know common sence says I am prego but I do not wan tto celebrate to early. Can you get a false positive? I am trying to set up an appointment with my doctor.

laughingwild |

re: Q: Too Soon For Pregnancy Test?

I have never heard of someone having a false positive. A nurse told me that rarely a home test will give you a false negative, but it will never give you a false positive. It only shows as positive if the horomone is present, and if it's present, then you are preggo!

AuburnGirlSC |

re: Q: Too Soon For Pregnancy Test?

Hi everyone. I'm new to teh blog. My honey and I have been trying since the summer and I am so discouraged right now. I am NEVER late...EVER. I tell you, I', like clockwork. My AF was due yesterday, and since nothing happened, I got excietd, jumped the gun and went to the hospital to get a test taken. Not blood, urine. Anyway, I almost died when it came back negative. But here I am another day and no AF. I hope that it was a false negative, but I am so anxious I can't even sleep. This is terrible. Yeah, I just needed to vent without bursting into tears :) Good Luck everyone!!!

alymel7579 |

re: Q: Too Soon For Pregnancy Test?

This waiting period is quite nerve recking. I wish there was a sooner way to find out rather than when you miss your period or a few days before. Are there any signs before missing your period??I wish everyone alot of baby luck because this is such a stressful process & I had NO IDEA.

ttehrani |

re: Q: Too Soon For Pregnancy Test?

This process is extremely stressful... especially for an impatient woman like myself! I expect AF around the 23rd of this month... but my cycles vary quite a bit... could be sooner. I would love to test as early as this weekend but am sure it is probably too early. How do you all stand the wait?

BarryHappy |

re: Q: Too Soon For Pregnancy Test?

I too am waiting to test and praying my AF doesnt visit this month. I can recommend something that helps with the waiting though. A Bachs emedy called IMPATIENS which I add a few drops of to my tea. It helps to calm the nerves and frequent visits to the loo to check!

Darls3000 |

re: Q: Too Soon For Pregnancy Test?

Sorry, that was meant to say Bachs Rememdy.

Darls3000 |

re: Q: Too Soon For Pregnancy Test?

This may sound silly but I went off the pill at the beginning of this month and TTC but there isn't much chance that I could have gotten PG this soon.... right?

re: Q: Too Soon For Pregnancy Test?

i am also waiting impatiently to test. Are there any signs to look out for prior to a test??

daniellepowell84 |

re: Q: Too Soon For Pregnancy Test?

Well having sex before you take a HPT will effect results?

CariannelovesTim |

re: Q: Too Soon For Pregnancy Test?

We were not ready to TTC till the end of this year, but in February I was about 2 weeks late getting my BC. When I finally got it an popped it in, I didn't even think about it. Now I'm about 3 Days from AF and am nauseous, and exhausted. I took an HPT (well, 3!) and all are very clearly pointing to Prego! Could it be a false positive?

Mrs. Killoran |

re: Q: Too Soon For Pregnancy Test?

I just got married March 15 and now am almost two weeks late! I took a test last week and it said no but should I take another test or just hope AF wont show?

re: Q: Too soon for pregnancy test?

Brand wise, i took 3 Equate +/- tests because they all came out with a bright vertical line and very very faint horizontal to make the "plus". We went and got a CBE Digital...voila....pregnant. Can't mis-read that one!

re: Q: Too soon for pregnancy test?

I took mine 7 days before I was supposed to start my period...First Response caught it in less than a minute, and Walmart equate brand did too...

re: Q: Too soon for pregnancy test?

My AF is due on Monday and I took a test today (6/5). Negative so far, but I have sore bbs and cramping. I will test again on monday if nothing yet

jmarquis77 |

re: Q: Too soon for pregnancy test?

I am 5-6 days late on my period. My husband and I had intercourse a week before my period was supposed to be due.I am experiencing lower abdominal cramping, diarrhea, occasionally twinges. I took 3 hpt's on late period days 3,4 and 5 and they were all negative. Do you think I could be pregnant even thought I thought I had already ovulated? We would be so excited, but the unknown answers are making me crazy! HELP!

777luckyinlove |

re: Q: Too soon for pregnancy test?

My DH and I had sex the week I was ovulating, and according to an ovulation calendar, the day after I was ovulating. I'm not sure if I'm just anxious but I keep getting this feeling that goes from my chest to my stomach, feels like a rush, is that a sign that I'm pg? Im not suppose to start my period until July 9th. Can I be pg?

njc921 |

re: Q: Too soon for pregnancy test?

I think I'm in the same boat as a lot of people. I lost my luggage with my BC in it on a recent trip and so my husband and I decided it would be a good time to TTC. My last AF was on July 4 and has not returned. Since I was on BC for a few years, I'm not sure what my cycle is, and have take to test, that have turned up negative; however, I am having similar feelings, tiredness, cramp and no AF. I really hope I could still be pg, but I'm getting sick of waiting for something to happen.

ofest03 |

re: Q: Too soon for pregnancy test?

I am so right there with y'all. My hubby and I aren't actively TTC but for the past week and a half to two weeks I have been exhausted and my bbs are RIDICULOUSLY sore. Since this has never been a problem for me during my cycle it kind of put my radar up. Then DH was out of town for 5 days for work and when he got home he mentioned that "the girls" looked bigger and fuller. Friday, (2 days before AF was due) I took a HPT...negative. Saturday night I started spotting lightly and figured that was it, AF was in town no baby for us. Had a little through yesterday (when AF was actually due) and then nothing. So now I guess I'm technically one day late and took a test this morning...still negative! I am so frustrated! I've had ab twinges, but not like how I get with AF. I'm also incredibly regular...never ever late. I guess I'm mostly freaked out b/c last time something like this happened I MC. Should I just give it up this month or retest if AF doesn't show up in a few more days?

Mabry's Mrs |

re: Q: Too soon for pregnancy test?

I'm so confused about this whole TTC process. I do not have a regular P. I go for months at a time without getting it and sometimes I get it back to back and once it lasted for two weeks straight. I've been pregnant 3 times 1 by abortion and two by miscarriage. I never know when to test because if i miss a P i just think it's normal. I'm familar with the symptoms of being pregnant so i just wait for those. I feel like i might be but i just too a test and it was negative. I don't know if it's too early or not. Should I test every week or every month?

jpassions131 |

re: Q: Too soon for pregnancy test?

My Hubby and I are TTC and my AF should start tomorrow, but i've been having all the signs of Preg. soreness, nausea, fatigue, lower abdominal pain, since reading the first chapter of What to Expect when your Expecting, i've gotten my hopes up about it, but i'm not sure if i am because it's going to be a lot harder on me with only one overy. and my AF doesn't help me either because it comes at different times every month, when should i test?

katandaj08 |

re: Q: Too soon for pregnancy test?

I took an EPT Digital test around 5pm today and was thrilled when it said "PREGNANT" so I went to the store and got several other kinds of tests just to make sure. First Response Gold said -NO so I got frustrated. Then I took a Clear Blue Easy Digital and it said "PREGNANT". Then I took the 2nd FR & again it said -NO!!! By the time I took the last Digital CBE it was 9pm and I was basically forcing myself to Pee! It came out "NOT PREGNANT". I am so frustrated! I don't know what to believe - I am 2 days late & we've been TTC for 4 months so I really hope we are expecting! Any advice???

re: Q: Too soon for pregnancy test?

So my hubby and I are not actively ttc but if it happens we would be excited and I am on an antibiotic for a sinus infection and didn't know that it could affect my bc...had sex twice during this week and it should be the middle of my cycle but I've been on bc so long that I don't even really know. I have been feeling really tired w/ sore breasts & a lil bit of twinges in my stomach...any thoughts about whether I could be pregnant? And is it too soon to take a test?

kellbell827 |

re: Q: Too soon for pregnancy test?

I will just say that I've taken 3 HPT's and they all tested negative. Plus I had a blood test which came back as 1.3 and the nurse said, "I guess that is pretty much negative." I was like... you should be alittle bit clearer! But I was supposed to get AF on 9/24. Still no sign... I'm like clockwork usually. The dr. said there's nothing wrong and AF will eventually come. I'm kind of freaking out though! Has anyone experienced this before? I was having some "syptoms" and thought I was preggers, but I've been feeling a little better that last few days. What do I do?

K8lynRae |

re: Q: Too soon for pregnancy test?

AF was supposed to come last Tuesday, I had some spotting but no AF. I tested and it was negative. We were in Cabo celebrating our 1 year and all week I had to pee every 10 min, boobs hurt so bad, tired..but I didn't think anything of it because I was spotting so I thought it was AF. Took a test today and it's positive! I'm sick with a sinus infection so that on top of my preggo symptoms are not nice! Hubby and I are in shock! Excited but still in shock mode, time to see the doc to get this confirmed!

re: Q: Too soon for pregnancy test?

Me and my husband just started trying this month. My period is on the same day every month and this month it didnt show. It was due on the 14th and I'm too weeks late. I take test after test and its still showing up negative. I spotted for 2 days a dark brown/red color but it was too light to be my period.My friend said that she took a pregnancy test and came up negative but was really pregnant! I go to the doctor tomorrow. I hope I get good news!

lxsebring2002 |

re: Q: Too soon for pregnancy test?

I saw here that someone else had a question about after birth control regularity. I was on the pill for 15 years and went off a year ago, just when I thought I was becoming regular again I went 40 days without AF. Now this is the next cycle and tomorrow is day 41? How am I ever supposed to figure out my ovulation schedule. I went to an Obgyn on Monday and got a Preg Test and it was neg. What do you think the deal is?

re: Q: Too soon for pregnancy test?

I am confused too. I am 3 days late, and have so far taken 2 neg preg tests. I have been off the pill for a few months and have never been late (I have endometriosis and actually I usually get my period EARLY because of that). I haven't tested too early, have I? It's day 31, wouldn't it be positive by now if I was?

rhannan |

re: Q: Too soon for pregnancy test?

My personal oppinion is to use a digital test. I had 3 negative tests using non-digital tests about 3 days apart starting 3 days before anticipated onset of period (but I tend to be a bit irregular). The 1st positive test was non-digital and I did it in a.m. but it was really hard to tell. I did a digi one later that evening & it came up positive right away. Just to be sure I did a non digi one then (all I had) and it was still a very faint positive. I've since retested with both styles and results are clearer but it's 2 weeks after 30 days from onset of my last period.

re: Q: Too soon for pregnancy test?

so i havn't had AF in two months now, but the test still says no. I think they could be false negitives, but i'm getting sore breasts, and some little twinges in my stomach too. I've also been nauseated, and i'm fatigued like crazy. i also had a blood test done back in late october but it said negitive, is it just because it was to sooon to test for it? i've never gone this long without a period, always every month, but now nothing in two? which test should i take, or should i just treat it like i'm already pregnate? (i've also been having all these i'm preg. dreams but i don't think thats counting for me on being preg, right?!)need advice!~Kat

katandaj08 |

re: Q: Too soon for pregnancy test?

I have taken three HPT and I keep getting a faint line in the test area. I am expecting my AF today or tomorrow. Am I pregnant. I don't want to get my hopes up, we have been trying for a year, and even did two rounds of fertility drugs.

sveldey |

re: Q: Too soon for pregnancy test?

So I used an HPT this morning, Equate brand from Wal-Mart and it said negative. But it might be too early. Some ppl can't afford to run to the Dr. all the time for a blood test. I feel like every time I see symptoms of what I think might be a pregnancy it ends up being my AF. Most of the symptoms are the same, except nausea. I was 8 weeks pg but lost it in a ectopic pg and never had any symptoms those whole 8 weeks.

KellB916 |

re: Q: Too soon for pregnancy test?

I have been TTC for three months now. I get AF on the same day every month and now I am eight days late and I tested the day I was supposed to get AF and then again at five days late and they both came out negative, I called my doctor and said to wait til I am two weeks late, which seems like it is taking forever, but I was wondering if this is common

re: Q: Too soon for pregnancy test?

Hi everyone! New here ... I have been off of my BC for almost 6 months and unfortunately right in the middle of TTC the Army sent him off to a training school. If all of the calculators are right we got to "see" each other at very beginning of my ovulation window and then again at the tail end of that window ... here's hoping ... so anxious to not get my period ... the days keep going so slowly until I can test ...

I have irregular periods and I think I am probably pregnant. I just feel weird. I am bloaty and have had slightly nauseous. I have taken 3 home pregnancy tests and all have come back negative. I am wondering if maybe I should wait another week and try it again and then if I still haven't got my period and the test comes back negative then go to the doctors. Any advice? This would be my first child and I am only 22. But my husband and I are anxious to start our family!

re: Q: Too soon for pregnancy test?

Ok so I am like 9 days late, and I took a test and it was neg, so I waited a few more days and with a FR it was a light positive, so I was unsure so I took another test and it turned pos, before i was even done peeing...so my hubby works out of town and I was thinking of fun ways to tell him, and so I thought I would get a digital test, and it came back NEG!! So then I thought that my frequent peeing and soreness was in my head so I went and got another test and it was pos again...so Ive decided Im gonna go to the Dr when my hubby gets home friday and we are gonna get the confirmation!! YAYIve noticed now that I am still peeing lots (like 3 times in the night) and smelling stuff i never smelled before!! and my boobs are swelling! So I cant wait for the dr confirmation that I am Preggers!

AF is 3 days late and I have all the symptoms... sore breasts, ridiculously tired... but each time I test it's a BFN!

(However, I highly doubt he was referring to this! LOL)

SittinUnderAPalmTree |

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

I have a weird situation. I'm hoping that someone can give me some help. My husband and I have been trying to conceive for the past 7 months. I also started using the Clear blue fertility monitor. I have a very regular cycle and have my period every 28-29 days. Last month I ovulated at day 14 (I was out of town and my husband I couldn't try). This month is when things get a little tricky. I ovulated on day 27 (the day before my period). It has been 7 days since I ovulated and I am now 6 days late on my period. I have had some cramps the first few days, but nothing happen. I finally used a pregnancy test when I got up and it came back negative. Is it too soon to be testing? Should I see a doctor? Could I be pregnant or is something wrong with me? Please help!

candiceevans |

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

To all the ladies with the positive pregnancy tests: You can only get a false positive if you have just given birth or you misread the test. A HPT tests for the hormone human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) This is only present when a glycoprotein is secreted by the placenta, shortly after fertilization. This means that you can only get a true positive if you are in fact pregnant. So if you get a positive than CONGRATS! You are pregnant. False positives are very common so you can test multiple times and have 4 neg and 1 positive test. But as long as you get a true positive than you are truly preggo. Now, the problem here is to make sure you are reading the test correctly. There should be a clear line indicating pregnancy. if you are unsure a digital test can be inexpensive and give you a clear result. A quantitative blood test from your doctor (not qualitative) is the most accurate! Good luck!!!

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

Cheshielutz |

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

I waited until my period was two days late. Unless your having tons of symptoms it's better to wait. Pregnancy test aren't inexpensive. Also, even if you're having symptoms it could just be your period.

everyone keeps saying that the tests aren't cheap. in the past i've bought test strips online at 10 strips for 5$ pretty sure that included shipping also if i don't want to wait for the delivery, i buy them at the dollar store. check your local one and see if they carry them. it's not a fancy digital one but you're just peeing on it. and they have showed pregnancy with all three of mine.

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

I am 5 days late for my period. My husband and I have been trying for 3 years to have a baby. We recently got pregnant but then I lot my baby at 13 weeks this past October. We decided to try again right away. I have never been late and have taken 3 pregnancy tests (digital clear blue easy) but all of them have turned out "Not Pregnant". I have tons of symptoms: headaches, backaches, nauseous, smells are strong, missed period, and I have to pee every hour to hour and a half. I am going crazy...has anyone had problems with these test strips?

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

I kept getting negative tests for over a week after I got pregnant. I went to the Doc and got a blood test, yup I was pregnant. Every womans levels are different so I would go to the Doc for a blood test.

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

I took a first response test and I got one dark pink and one fainter pink line. Do they both need to be dark? I have been googling it like crazy and am getting mixed messages! I don't have a doctors appt. for 7 more days...getting anxious!!

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

I've been getting symptoms since last Tusday: nausea, cramps, diarrhea, ab twinges. My AF varies from 28-33 days so 28 days will be tomorrow. I took a test yesterday and got a BFN. I'm not totally convinced however am disappointed. I'll wait until Sunday which is sooo hard to do and then try again if AF hasn't come.

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

I absolutely HATE the waiting process for HPT'ing...I'm so anxious to see if the Clomid I am on worked..this was my first round. AF is due on Feb 13 and I took a HPT today (early response) and was not PG. Think there is still hope for me this month?

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

I used First Response & got a positive test 4 days before my period was due. Thru charting I was able to determine the exact date of ovulation.

AF not due until tomorrow but I went ahead and took a pregnancy test today and it was positive. I used First Response Early Result preg. test.

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

Sometimes the ones that aren't digital can give you a very faded line which can leave you wondering...I would recommend the digital ones because they make it clear one way or another. After 3 EPT and one Clearblue Digital test...we are prego!

hollyinaz2 |

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

Im so confused! I took a test 2 days after I realized I missed my period, it was negative. I waited 2 more days (4 days late) and it was negative. I used First Response and took it first thing in the morning. I did everything I could to get an accurate result! I've never been this late on a period in the past and we are TTC. What are the chances the at home tests are wrong? If I was pregnant, they should have showed positive results by now, right?

hldfrost |

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

the only true way to know if ur prego is to go to the doctor and get a blood test. HCG levels can be detected and if there are high levels they will retest 2 days later to make sure the HCG is still progressing if there is any reason for concern. Good luck all!

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

Hi:) New here. Anyway I have a question. I took a First Response 6 days early test today (AF is due Sunday) and it said it was negative. Is there a chance I tested too early? Also I should mention this is my first month after going off of BC.

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

Hi!, I was supposed to get my period on 3-19 and have not gotten it yet, I took 2 pregnancy tests and they came out negative :s I am so confused...what should I do? I stopped BC about a month and a half ago.. I am really anxious and need a definite answer, can't wait to take another test..but is it too soon?

adrimolina |

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

Hi, AF was supposed to come 3-28, I have only taken 1 hpt but it was negative. I really want a baby with my hubby. He is hoping that I am pg. I just am scared that I am going to get another hpt even though I have been getting nausea, vomiting, cramps, lower back pain, diarrhea, ab twinges, headaches, moody, & I even have had spotting for about 20 min. What do you girls think? Please help!

daddytobewithme |

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

I"m in the same boat as a lot of you girls. I went off BC after my last cycle after being on it for aout a year. My last AF was feb. 26 I think. I say this because I had 3 days of bleeding (not as heavy as my regular AF) 5 days later. I don't know if i should count the 6th as the last day. Either way, I'm late. I took 2 tests. One before i would be due for AF if i went from the second bleeding and one just last week. Both were positive. Really not sure what to do. I read the other walls about TTC after BC and a lot of ppl said that it could happen right away after coming off BC. BUT then again, there were also a lot of ppl that said that it can take a couple months. I don't know what to do and would like some advice. I just would like to know if i am PG or have my AF so that I have a starting point and can start trying for next month.

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

I took a Clear Blue digital test exactly five days before my period and got a positive. I wasn't expecting it to work so I tried a cheap dollar pregnancy test (yes, it was only a dollar) and tested positive on that as well, although the line was quite light.

willandjaye |

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

I just took the first response pregnancy test yesterday (Monday) and got positive results. My period was/is not due until Friday and I always have a 28 day cycle so First Response was able to detect preganancy 4 days before my missed period

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

March I got my period on the 2nd, April I got my period on the11th, its now May 13 and I'm so anxious to test but I really want to wait till the end of the month. Negative tests make me so sad :( ugh but I also don't want to stress about it. Fingers crossed for everyone whos TTC!

gabibarcellos |

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

by doctors advice you should wait to test until 10 days after your missed period don't get me wrong we have some lucky ones out there that produce hcg faster than others (guessing it depends on the number of days between your cycle) but I have a 30 day cycle and I am now 4 days late and when I called the advice doctor at my nearest hospital she said to wait 10 days until after my missed period to take a hpt although I believe clear blue would be the most accurate between this period of time.

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

we have been TTc about six mouths, my last period was the week of april 22. last week i was cramping like my period was going to start, it never did. i have took two different tests this past week both neg. today i started spoting i do not know if iam starting or i read that i could be pregant. does this happen normally. i am so confused about all of this . y can some people can have a kid the frist time and others take much longer.

dolfin101 |

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

we have been ttc for awhile now, my last period started April 1 (my cycles run between 40-45 days) so this puts me about a week and half past my expected period. I have taken multiple hpt and all with a BFN. I am very frustrated because I am on anti-seizure medication which makes any pregnancies high risk for me...could I be pregnant and just not have high enough hcg levels to test yet? Is that normal? My doctor can't fit me in for a blood test for 2 weeks and I can't stand waiting!

ShelleyElla22 |

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

Hi everyone :) New to the site. Was wondering if anyone could give me some insight. AF is for the most part regular....usually between 28-30 days. DH and I had intercourse on what the ovulation calculator said was my most fertile day. 2 days later I had a discharge that accoridng to the description sounds like implantation bleeding. DH and I had intercourse again last night and now I am having spotting. AF is due tomorrow or Monday. Could this just be early signs of AF or if I possibly am pregnant is this spotting bad. When should I test?

ema857 |

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

I used the first response 6 days before your peirod. just took two tests and both were positive!

b_cole6 |

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

I have been reading a lot of blogs that said that some tests didn't show they were pregnant until days or a couple weeks after their missed period. For some women the HCG levels weren't high enough until then. I am 5 days late and tested on day 2 of being late and on day 5. Both are negative. I wil just wait a couple more days and test again.

Ibliss |

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

Just browsing thru here. I was diagnosed with stage 4 endometriosis a little over a month ago. Sadly the RE said I may not conceive naturally. But, I started spotting a day before AF was due and I spotted for 3 days and then I had a real heavy flow for 3 days and then all of a sudden it stopped. I've been sick to my stomach, with diarreaha and lots of headaches. I took a test yesterday and it was negative. I'm not even sure what day I should consider for the starting of my cycle since I had spotting and then a flow. I just haven't felt well and I really really wanna get pregnant since we've been trying for almost 3 years. I'm so sick of waiting and always getting bad news.

Smiley_grl52 |

crtnyjosephine |

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

I officially came off birth control on March 26-- my husband and I started TTC Oct 1. I am day 30 into my cycle and I have no signs of AF making an appearance (normally, I am craving chocolate and getting a little moody when she starts to make her appearance. My periods have always been irregular before birth control but now I am wondering if I should take a test this weekend??? DH and I are excited about the possibilities and will be pretty surprised if we got pregnant the first month we actually tried. I had a mini-cold last week, and like crtnyjosephine, I hope that didn't throw me out of whack too. HMMM....what to do?? Wait a little while longer or take a test??? :)

elvirarivera08 |

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

My cycles are extremely regular and I got a positive (a very faint one) 7 days before my period was due. The next day, I took 3 more - just to confirm - lol : )

KLS121212 |

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

i'm in the same boat as some of you girls who said they are late but keep getting negative HPT results. I stopped taking birth control in September and my husband and I have been TTC. Before I went on bc (5 years ago) my periods were between 30 and 40 days apart. My first period after being off it was 29 days. According to that, I am now 9 days late. I last took a HPT 3 days ago but it was negative :(. I'm wondering if any of you girls who got negative results ended up actually being pregnant??? I'm hoping!

happyinlove7309 |

I need some advice on when to take my HPT because I am having some early symptoms of pregnancy and if I am pregnant this will be my first time....i will be a new mommy :)

LilMannsMa22 |

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

Well... this will be our 3rd if we find out tomorrow that we are expecting. AF is due to start on Thursday, and so far, there are not even the slightest signs of PMS! But there have been tons of signs that we might be preggo (nausea, exhaustion, really intense cravings, etc etc.) However, like many have said, I would AT BEST wait 1-2 days after AF was to start... but if you really just can't wait... do so at least a day or two before your period, because that would be when its' the most accurate (or close to it)!! Good luck!

Hi everyone Im new on the site and I desperately am in need of advice. My lmp was 11-23 my husband and I had sex on all the days I was ovulating. I have been having all the symptoms and even colostrum coming out. I can swear im pregnant but I took a test today 6 days before my period and it was negative. Do you think theres still a chance? I will wait until 12/21 when im due and hope that I dont start. 12/21 is my birthday and it's would be the best gift ever!!!! Thanks please help

babyboyhopes11 |

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

New to the site, but pretty excited about TTC. AF was due four days ago yet nothing. HPT was negative, but I've been experiencing nausea and fatigue like no other. I know it's probably all in my mind, but have others had this happen and received a positive test later?

hchollister |

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

I tested a false negative about 6 days before my period was due. I took that as my final answer and didn't think much of it. Fast forward to 3 days after my period was due with still no period (I am very regular)...I shelled out another $20.00 and got a BFP twice. That was yesterday. So, I guess it's best to just wait until atleast your period's due date....I wasted $7.00 'cause I just couldn't wait...sigh ;)

jennyjeans |

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

I tested negative a week ago when AF was a day late....now at a week late not sure if I should test again. I don't have nay noticable sysmptoms but even if I did I probably wouldn't notice I have low blood sugar that makes me dizzy alot and hungry alot, indegestion problems make me nausious alot, I have a small bladder to begin with and I work 60+ hours a week so I'm always tired! It's our first month TTC and I just don't think we are that lucky!

MChapman20 |

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

My last visit from AF was 01/01/11. She stayed for only 2.5 days before leaving to visit other lucky ladies. Normally she visits with me for 4-5 days every 28-29 days. It is now 02/03/11 and I haven't seen her or even gotten a crampy phone call saying she's on her way. I don't want to get my hopes up, but I'm so excited I can barely stand it. Should I wait a few more days before testing just to be safe? I mean, I do live in Maine and the roads have been horrible lately. Maybe AF just went off the road and is stuck in a ditch?

ns19 |

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

My periods were very irregular before getting pregnant last year which made our positive test & our 1st pregnancy such a surprise. I am loving raising my 26 week old. However, there is a chance that I may be pregnant again ( stupid Valentines Day!!!) & I just got my period once since I had to stop breast feeding. So now with my pre-preg periods being so irregular I'm not even sure when to expect my usual one. Now that I'm worried about being pregnant again I want to know how soon I can take a pregnancy test where the hormones will show the results when I'm not sure of when or if I have already missed when I was supposed to get my period?

toriandchris |

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

I am 35 yrs old and after many years of not getting pregnant (not even once, not maybes or anything) I pretty much gave up. Prayed to God to make me quit obssessing about it. Finally not thinking about it and just trying to move on with life when I missed AF and 3 days later took equate test ready to be disappointed, when LOL it said Positive!!! Was in denial, the line seemed faint. Had 3 other ppl look at it and say what they thought. Said they saw + too! We are so happy! Just starting to notice sickness and breasts and tired. Got emotional too (but I think that was cuz someone decided to be very negative to me about pregnancy- dangers chance of miscarriage etc) sure it could happen but I don't want to hear that. I'm trusting in God and going to Dr on Mon. There is hope ppl!

MrsMoyd2010 |

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

My husband and I aren't really "TTC." We figure it will happen when it is supposed to. Anyway, my cycle usually only lasts 21 to 25 days. AF is due Monday-ish and I don't have any of my usual PMS. No acne, no emotional train wreck, no uncomfortable or constant cramping. However, late last week my breasts started feeling heavy and then tender. And now they get more and more sore by the day. I took one test a few days ago and it very faintly showed two lines... but I think it was too early. I want to take my other one... but yet again, it may be too early. If I am pregnant, I'm not even three weeks yet.

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

Me and DH have only been trying for a month, but since we had our first without even trying we were hoping that it might happen the first month off BC. We have done the "deed" all around the time of ovulation. AF is due Sun. 12. Yesterday took a First Response test. It was negative. I don't understand how we could not be preggo?! Is it possible that I just tested too early? I am sooo anxious!

Sportymom021 |

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

You Should Wait 2 Weeks After A Missed Period To Test For Pregnancy Or Take A More Sensitive Test Up To 5 Days Before A Missed Period..

AmberDawnE |

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

Just an update---So AF was due Sun. 12. But it didn't happen so I took another test on Mon. But it was negative also! Today is Tues and I still haven't started but I think I am going to take "negative" as my final answer an just wait for AF to arrive so that we can start over. I still do not understand why AF hasn't arrived considering that before BC AF was always very precise almost down to the exact hour.

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

Sportymom- I hope you are already preggers but if not, don't worry. Auntie Flow is just funny that way. When my Hubby and I tried to concieve I was very regular, like you. As soon as we started going to a fertility clinic (before ANY treatment), she started coming 2 days early! I also didn't understand but it doesn't matter, we're 22 weeks preggers now :) Good luck

jeanniez |

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

Sportymom- it took 3 months for my monthly to come after I stopped taking my BC pills. It can take up to 6 months for your cycle to return to normal. So don't stop trying! It will happen soon enough :)

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

Hello everyone! My DH and I have been married for almost 4 months and we just started TTC! We've wanted children for so long. Because of our beliefs we didn't have intercourse until marriage, so we were ready to get started! Anyway, my "predicted ovulation day" was July 30-31. We TTC on the 31st and again on the 1st. AF is not due until the 13th, but I want to test NOW! I'm scared about the BFN, but I guess we'll just have to try again! Any thoughts?

skittlesj526 |

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

I'm a little sad, but still hopeful! I couldn't wait so I took a pregnancy test today and it was a BFN. However, my cycle is not due until the 13th and I used a Dollar Tree Test and I don't know how sensitive it is. Everyone, keep your fingers crossed for me!

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

in response to coconutcutie, I hear you. my husband and I have been trying 10 months now and I know my period will be here any day. everyone around me is pregnant, both of my sister-in-laws, a couple of their friends, a couple of my friends, people I work with, cousins, you name it, are pregnant. I feel like it is never going to happen, but we have to stay positive because it will happen, we are just not sure when yet. Until then, we can both try to relax and have a good time with out significant others, knowing that even though life could be a little better, it is still pretty good right now. keep your chin up and good luck to you!

manda1283 |

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

I hear you too, me and my husband have been trying for 5 years now!! im due AF on mon 26th but i am really hoping she doesnt show, i have been feeling nauseous, extremely exhausted to the point where i am falling asleep on the sofa most nights really early, going to the loo frequently and strange twinges every now and again all since approx 2 dpo, also last couple of days my boobs have been very sore and heavy. Me and my husband are still both quite young, im 24 and my husband is 29 and we have both been checked at fertility clinic and at first was told everything ok but now they want me to have a AMH blood test to determine how many eggs i have left! i really dont want to have to have this done as petrified they will tell me there is something wrong. I have put up with people saying it will happen but i have had 2 very early MC's both 5 - 6 weeks and i have also tried to "take my mind off of it" but everywhere i look there is a pregnant woman and this gets me quite depressed especially when its people i know who have only been trying a couple of months including my step sister who i used to be extremely close to but find it hard to be around now where she is heavily pregnant and is due next month, obviously i am over the moon for her though. Sorry for the essay but not really had anyone to talk to who is going through the same as me :( Anyway i just gotta get through this weekend now and try not to stress too much over it. Good luck to you both and please let me know how you get on.

jen87brs |

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

I was trying to get pregnant and feeling really different...even though it was 7 days before my period was due I decided to take the test for fun ( I bought it in bulk :) haha) and it showed a faint positive line! The pregnancy test (clearblue) said that if the line was there no matter how faint it was positive...I was happy but still didn't really believe it...its now the day my period is due and I took another one and its a straight up positive! super dark lines and the result was almost instant! It really can vary from womam to woman. And I think it really depends on when the egg was implanted...as I know the exact days I had sex and they were a few days before my supposed ovulation date, so I think everything started early and the hcg hormone started growing quickly.

amazestar |

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

My husband and I have been trying for 2 months. Since I have been off of the pill, I have been getting AF on Sundays. I took a test the day after my missed period and it was a negative. However, I didn't take it in the morning during my "first" pee like I was told to. I have been told it could still be too early because I didn't have as much hCG and that is why the test came out negative. I am now on day 2 of my missed period. I am going to try again in a couple of days. Keeping my fingers crossed! I say take a test a few days after your missed period. You will most likely have the result you are looking for :)

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

My husband and I have been TTC for about 3 months now and nothing. Since I've been off the pill (which was the end of June) I've been having really irregular periods. However, even when I was on BC I had irregular periods, but not this bad. My first period after going off BC was 37 days, then the second was 28 days. Now, I'm going on day 46 and still no period. I've taken 3 HPTs and they have all come up negative. You can imagine my disapointment thinking that I am preggers cuz it's been so long. The only thing that I can think of that would make me miss my period is that I've started working out 4 days a week and that my body is going through a change. I usually get my period the last week of every month, so I guess I'll see if I get it in the next week or so. Does anyone have any advise as to what I should do?

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

Hello! I'm new on here and came across this question, I noticed a lot of additional questions but very answers.... hopefully I can offer some words of advice. If you know when you ovulate (generally midway through your cycle, for instance the average 28 day cycle ovulation typically occurs around day 14) it can help determine when you can take a home pregnancy test. Implantation occurs anywhere from 6 to 12 days after ovulation. Once the fertilized egg implants into the uterine lining the hormone hcg is released. Hcg aka "the pregnancy hormone" can be detected by serum (blood) approximately in 3 days while urine home pregnancy tests can detect the hormone in about 4 to 5 days. Using these numbers it would calculate to just around time of your period...therefore it is generally best/most accurate to wait until after your missed period to test. If you can't wait until AF arrives some home pregnancy test boast testing up to 6 days before your missed period (with the disclaimer of possibilities of false negatives)...each day closer to your period accuracy improves. And just like others have mentioned, hcg is only released during pregnancy, so any positive result no matter how faint the line is accepted as a true result...meaning yes, are PREGNANT!!!!! Good luck to all you hopeful moms-to-be out there!!!!!! Ps: if you are having difficulties determining when you ovulate you can buy an over the counter ovulation prediction kit. I personally am using the one from Clear Blue Easy...I have been on birth control pills for about 10 years. After discarding my last pack, it took about 3 months for my period to regulate, now that it has this month I am using the Ovulation predictor kit....hopefully with positive resukts

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

Oops...clicked submit my mistake.... So to conclude, the ovulation kits are very easy to use but are not cheap ($40 to $60)! Clear Blue Easy makes one that you begin testing about 6 days after AF arrives and test daily (by urinating on the sticks provided) until you get a smiley face. It monitors for your leutenizing hormone (LH) surge which precedes ovulation by generally 24 to 36 hrs...so once you get that smiley face, ovulation should be about 24 to 36 hrs away! Good luck everyone!!!!

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

I am so fustrated with results of hpt's. I am currently 6 days late and we have been TTC since August. I was on BC for a few years prior. Each test I have taken comes back negative. No idea what to do since I am tierd, have some nausea, and lower abd pain which sounds like round ligament pain. Not sure when to take next hpt or if I should call a doc. Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Praying for you mimarovi! I am trying to concieve as well. I think we m ay have done it and im trying to wait on taking the pregnancy test but I haven't missed my period yet. Having slight cramping and slight lower back pain. I am not due for my period until the 20th, its going to be a long wait. :( If I were you I would go have a blood test done. Good luck.

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

Hi everyone! My husband and I are TTC and I'm hoping that it worked! I'm due around the 25th so it's going to be a long wait. I've been having lower back pain as well and some cramping but didn't want to get my hopes up on it. Just going to have to wait I guess. Just reading everything I can possibly find in the meantime. Good luck everyone!

Took a pregnancy test today that is supposed to give early results. (Friend of mine got it from the hospital she works at). It was negative. Perhaps too early. Who knows. Guess we will just keep trying!

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

Okay so I am now 7 days late and decided to call the doctor. I was told to come in this week for a blood test and review of things I should be doing. It is exciting even though I still had a negative result from HPT yesterday. The doc said she thinks congrats are in order since most HPT's aren't good untill you are 6 weeks along and I could be only 3 or 4 weeks. Keep you updated and hope everyone gets the result they want soon. The waiting game is no fun. Good luck to all!

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

Just got a positive HPT!!! First response worked for me. I can only be 4 weeks pregnant! I have an extremely strange cycle and thought getting pregnant would take forever! Well, I got my period Oct 25th, we got married Oct 28th, and started trying immediately. My day 14 was Nov 8. I started feeling strange, cramping, boobs hurt, then my lower stomach above my pubic bone seemed really bloated yesterday... I normally bloat higher in my abdomen. Took the test this morning (urine is most concentrated, which is very important for the test when you aren't that far along), and TAH DAH!!!

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

I stopped taking BC over a year ago b/c it was messing with my hormones and giving me AWFUL mood swings. Since then, I've used an app on my iPod touch to track my cycles and it gives you an estimation on when you should ovulate. Last month my DH and I didn't check the calendar and I am currently 4 days late. Over the past year my cycles have fluctuated between 28 and 30 days, but more often than not it was 28 days. I took a test on day 2 of my missed period and the morning of the 3rd, both BFN. I used the Equate brand that is compared to First Response. I don't know if I'm prego but I have been exhausted, moody, slightly nauseous and my nipples are sore (not my entire chest though...). We would be thrilled to be expecting, but I don't want to get my hopes up. How much longer should I wait before I take another HPT?

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

I am now 3 to 5 days late for my AF, i have been feeling nauseous, cramping on and off during the day. After about a week since i had sex, i had a brownish red color bleeding that didnt even last a whole day. I have been extremely tired, at work all i want to do is sleep, i have been going to bed a whole lot earlier, i have been peeing more, and thirsty all the time i even wake up just to get a drink. im bloated which i know could be part of my period but this has been going on for over a week now and i still have not started. I took a home pregnancy test the day after my AF was due but it was negative. I dont know if it's all in my head or what. Is there anyone who can give me on some advice or tell me what other reasons i could be going through this? Thank you. If i dont start my AF by the end of the month im going to go get a blood test.

tayboo797 |

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

Guess I jumped the gun taking the tests, my AF came 6 days late. I didn't think I'd be too upset since we weren't planning on getting pregnant anyway, even after the 2 BFN I was ok... but when I finally started... it was kind've devastating. Life moves on and so will I, we're planning on really TTC this summer but I really hope the rest of you have some BFPs soon!!! As andreastillion put it- "Baby dust to you all!"

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

Hello! I'm in the same boat here, currently on CD 38 of a genuinely regular 30 day cycle. My boyfriend and I used ZERO protection and laid together at least once a week every week in the month of November. I have had 4 miscarriages in the past and each time I was able to find out by 4 weeks. Now I have tested 4 times, both before and after my period was due (on the 7th of every month.....) and every one has come out negative. I've been having a truck load of symptoms: congestion, back ache, vomiting, nausea, constipation, moodiness, light headed, metallic taste in my mouth on occasion, very excessive lotiony white discharge (so much that it feels like AF and I have to wear a panty liner to keep from chaffing from all the moisture down there), tender breasts, cramps (light cramps, with AF they can be hellacious to mild), unbearably sensitive nipples and now headaches. I am convinced I'm preggers. So, because I've got aaaall this going and and STILL no AF, my honey and I decided to order the 10miu pregnancy tests since I've read alot of people havent been able to test positive due to low hcg...*sighs* Has anybody gone through this and ended up being pregnant? feed back is appreciated and I will update as soon as the tests come in the mail! WISH ME LUCK!

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

I took a First Response test about 8 days after I ovulated and BFN. I retested on day 11 w/ another First Response and got a VERY faint pink line. So faint, I thought it was just from the steam in the bathroom or something as I was taking a shower. I took another test - a digital one- and got "Not Pregnant". I was so discouraged. Then what seemed like an eternity later (the next day), I bought some more of the First Reponse tests and there's no mistaking it...we are very pregnant!!!!!

Kimmy2002, I am in the SAME boat as you! My husband and I are TTC our first child, and AF was supposed to be here Sunday. You can set a clock by my cycles, and I tested yesterday (3 days late) with a BFN... I only have my period for 4-5 days, so I have technically missed my period by now. I am emotional (more than just pms-y), tender boobs, and REALLY bloated! Retest, or call the dr?

Lizzy122488 |

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

I got off BC a little over a month ago because my husband and I wanted to start trying next month and I figured it wouldn't hurt to get off of it soon and just use condoms. Well, I am either really fertile or something is up with my cycle because no AF came on Sunday(4 days ago) and I have never missed a period. Tests show negative results so far and I have sore breasts and nipples, little nausea twice and fatigue. My sis said she didn't get positive results until her 5th week(I'm ending my 4th) so I still could be. But, I still wonder if something is just up with my cycle...don't want to get my hopes up! Waiting stinks!!

Kayla&Josh |

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

I took two pee on the stick type. One on 9 days past ovulation was a negative, and the other this morning 12 days past ovulation faint positive! OMG I'm so excited. It was unplanned but I am thrilled. I knew I was pregnant based on the symptoms starting 3 days after ovulation, but the neg test really made me sad. I was sure I knew my body better then that. So I started reading how long before I could test I found this amazing website. If you want to know your result chances just click on how many days past ovulation and is shows percentages of very faint pos, faint pos, standard pos, strong pos, blood pos, neg, and evap (what ever that is) Surprise surprise the blood test and the evap are the weakest link ladies. check out the site its amazing ohh and the calendars super cool. I would love to see the bump put in a direct link to this site for you all.

Equate is one of the best in my opinion. It can detect as low as 25mg of HcG. Which is great if you are too ancy to wait, like myself. It's cheap too. It is only sold at walmart though. When you look at tests look for a low number for detection. The lower the number the better chance you have of getting early results. Goodluck with your bumbs!

Beautiful Nace |

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

Yes.... I actually tested on the day of my expected period, and got a negative result. It's almost a week later and no period. My OBGYN told me to wait 7 days and take the test again. Some women just don't show pregnancy until there's enough HcG in their system. And that can depend on when your egg was fertilized AND when it implanted. I had a friend's egg implant the DAY BEFORE her period, and she tested negative for 2 weeks following her missed period. So you never know!

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

I am new here as well. I am supposed to start my period today, but it hasnt arrived yet. Lately I have been craving fish every. single. day. I dont ever crave fish. And I have been bloated, sore breasts, gassy, acne like crazy, and I have had this anxious feeling for a wile, as well as frequent trips to the bathroom, etc. These all seem like normal preperiod symptoms. Except for the fish craving and acne which never happens to me. I dont crave things before/during my period. I took a test 4 days before AF and it was a BFN. DH and I have DTD a lot this past month. The longest we've gone without it is 3 days, and that was nowhere near ovulation time. Could I still be pregnant?? I am just so nervous, I hope its not all in my head. *sigh*

I have very regular heavy periods with extreme cramping every month. Last week I got my period 4 days early, no cramps at all, it was very light and last at most 3 days. I have had a headache for days, sick to my stomach, dizzy, boobs feel very heavy. I took a test today, but it was negative. Too early to know?

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

I see there are a lot of questions on here... but not a lot of answers. I am just wondering if anyone can give me some insight... maybe from a past experience? My husband and I have been TTC since September of 2012. I got pregnant very quickly (after only 2 months of trying) and then we lost the baby when I was 5 1/2 weeks along... We did everything the doctor said and waiting until I had a regular AF to try again. We have been trying since December and it is now March. I was supposed to start AF on 3/9 (sometimes very early on the 10th) and it is 3/11 and I took a test last night and this morning and it was BFN. Devastating because I feel pregnant. I have very sore breasts, get nauseous sometimes... and I am just wondering if there is hope. Have any of you had BFN and then tested 5-7 days later and got a BFP?? I just want to know that there is hope for us still. :) Thank you!

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

My period is about a week and a half late and I've taken four tests, all coming back negative. Local public health said I might be testing too soon so they are doing a urine analysis in their office tomorrow morning. Keeping my fingers crossed! Six months of trying with no such luck. Does anyone have a favorite brand they use? ClearBlue is definitely not my friend anymore!

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

I just started having pregnancy symptoms this past week. I had some slight cramping in my abdomen on the far right side. My AF was supposed to be Friday and never came and I haven't been showing any signs of PMS. I took a HPT on Friday but it came up negative is there a chance I tested too soon? And would now be the time to take one since I'm 4 days late?

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

I just stopped taking the pill a few weeks ago (was on it for about 13 years continuously) and it appears according to my temps that I ovulated a week ago. Yesterday 6 days past ovulation, I had cramping. Today, my temp spiked and I'm nauseous and hot. I just feel different and my husband and I both think I'm pregnant. I think implantation may have occurred yesterday. I'm going to take my first pregnancy test tomorrow morning, but I know it's on the early side. I simply just cannot wait anymore and it seems like some people get a positive reading at 8 DPO. Wish me luck!

AN Amazing Testimony On A Spell Caster zogospellcasters@gmail.com Who help me to get pregnant, So me and my partner have been trying for a baby for the last 5 years now and we have had no luck. I don't have a regular cycle so it is hard for me to tell when I'm ovulating or not, but we always have sex at least 2 times a week, sometimes more. I know it can take up to a year to conceive but everyone i know who have had a baby have conceived within 2-3months of trying and it is really getting to me and my partner had a fertility test about a year ago and his sperm were fine. I'm thinking it could be a problem with me but I've never had any symptoms of any problems. My partner does smoke and have the occasional drink, and i used to smoke and also have the occasional drink. i know I'm slightly overweight but that shouldn't affect our chances too much,one faithful day my friend told me to contact a spell caster that help her aunty, then i contact the man on this email: zogospellcasters@gmail.com , after three months the doctor confirm that i am pregnant thank you DR Zogo for helping me get a baby

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

Q: Is it too early to test? I'm only 8 DPO...my period isn't due for a week. But, I've had several early symptoms: nausea, cramping, sore breasts, frequent trips to the bathroom, and constant burping. I can't take this waiting. I want to take a test, but I'm afraid that I'm setting myself up for disappointment.

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

well I am suppose to start my period today as we speak. I am very regular and my cycle is 28 days give or take. I'm exhausted, I am had crazy sweet tooth cravings like you wouldn't believe and my hubby and I had intercourse every day that I was fertile. So my fingers are crossed and I am dying to take a test. I took one 2 months ago when the day before I was suppose to get my period and it was negative and sure enough I got my period the next day. At the moment, besides feeling fatigued, I just starting feeling bloated. I don't have cramps... which I normally would have severe cramps on the first day. So how long should I play this waiting game before taking a test? I got one at home on my bedside table. I don't wanna jinx it so I don't wanna take yet. Help me ease my nervousness plz...

My cycles vary from 26-28 days each month. I am now on cycle day 33 and no AF. Temps are still elevated, cervix high, but HPT negative. So frustrated and because its the day after Thanksgiving I can't get in to see my doctor. Anyone else ever been this late and still got BFN and then end up being pregnant??

Too bad you don't have a home cure for infertility. I've tried to treat this condition for years, but with no results. Recently a friend of my husband recommended the RMG Clinic because she did here a fertility treatment. It seems like this clinic is my only hope.

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

I just took two in home pregnancy test, the first I took (digital First Response) cane back positive, I then wait about 20-30 mins and took the second (not a digital) and it came back negative, did I wait to soon to take the second or could I have gotten a false positive?

Q&A: When to take a pregnancy test?

I am always regular, 27/28 days on the dot. On the day I was supposed to get my period I got brown spotting instead, but it has since disappeared. Now day 30 no sign of my period, but my breasts are still sore. Am I just late? I have no other symptoms. We've been TTC for 7 months so I am having a really hard time getting my hopes up and taking a pregnancy test.
