I'm kinda new to all this, so excuse my naivity. I'm showing quite a few signs of early pregancy symptoms but the couple of tests I've done so far have turned up negative. I've done quite a bit of reading on this in the last couple of days and all everyone says is that you have to test after your af due date ... what happens if your like me and don't actually know when that is???? The dr changed the pill I take 3 months ago and I haven't had an af since.
Ok symptoms ... I had spotting last week for 2 days, along with cramping. Have been extremely sensitive mood wise for the last week and have been suffering dizzy spells, headaches, fatigue etc for about 2 weeks. My stomach is slightly bloated and boobs a little fuller. I'm also making the trek to the loo a lot more often.
So the big question for me is ... if the spotting was an implantation bleed, how long after that will it take for the HPT to show bfp?
Hiya, This is exactly the same as me apart from the bleeding. My doc changed my pill in May this year, its now august and i still haven't had af. me and boyfriend usually use condom aswell but recently we didnt. been getting pregnancy symptoms but dont know when to take a test.
its difficult when there is no 'missed' period to go by.
Since your HPTs are comming out negative but no AF for 3 months I would reccommend going to the Dr. and getting a blood preg test as they are more accurate. Also if that is negative as well your Dr. can do an exam and maybe be able to find a reason for your missed AF.
Yeah I think that both of you should go to the dr. They can do a blood test and find out for sure what is going on. If you are not pregnant then maybe they can figure out why your period hasnt started.
After the sperm and egg combine it usually takes 2 weeks for the HcG horomone to kick in high enough to be detected. I'd wait another week or two test again. If that comes out negative and you still think you might be then go get a blood test done from your doctor. Good luck!
Thanks guys, guess its still a waiting game! It's quite funny actually, I've had myself convinced that I'm preggas and DH has been saying no way ... now I'm questioning it and he's 100% positive I am.
To those questioning the lack of af, I'm not worried about that issue at all ... quite normal, the docs often put me on stuff to stop her coming .... have bad endometriosis. If I am preggas it might make the docs happy, they told me the best thing to do was pop out 3 or 4 kids when I was 16 ... 12 years later and I might finally be taking their advice ;-)
ok I have an issue myself. i just have this feeling that im pregnant. i dunno it could just be me. but in the morning at 5:30 when i get up for work i sometimes feel like im gonna be sick but i dont actually throw up. i got my last period but it was really really oddly light and kinda dark colored blood. usually i last 6 days at least and really heavy where i have to change my pad every couple of hours. i feel tired at 2:30 PM and i have very sore and heavy feeling breasts and a yellowy light colored discharge. so im contemplating on whether im pregnant or not. i am expecting to get my period on the 20th of this month so the earliest i can take a birth control test is on the 16th. I am emotional too...can anybody help? or give me some pointers please
Just wanted to update people on the issue I posted, still getting BFN however I decided to spend a little more money on a HPT yesterday and it says that if you don't know when your af is due then you should wait 20 days after you think you became preg to test. Should've spent the extra dollars all along!
In light of this azthenia ... I'd save your dollars and wait to test until the 20th, don't want you going broke on HPTs like me
I agree with everyone on going to the doctor to be sure. A friend of mine took 4 HPTs and they all came out negative and now she has a 4 month old son. I had a feeling 2 weeks after we had our ut oh and sure enough my HPT came out positive!
