When should you take a pregnancy test if your periods are VERY irregular?

I'd say take the test about 30 days after you last period. If it is negative, wait a week and take another one if you haven't gotten your period. If it is still negative, wait another week and take a third if you don't start. If you still have not started or gotten a positive result go see a doctor. It's hard to say since your periods are so irregular, but taking a test about a month after your last period should be enough time to get a positive result if you are pregnant. Answer i am in the same situation, last month it was 43 days but a few months earlier it was 29 days!! its soo annoying. at the moment its been 39 days and i am worried i am pregnant, i have done 4 tests all over the past 9 days-all negative. i am sacred i have taken them to early! i read the home preg test leflet and it says for irregular periods take the longest cycle you have had and test from then. for me that is 3 days away, wish me luk. ope i have helped in sum way

If a woman has an irregular period and she takes a pregnancy test and it comes back positive is there a chance it could still be negative?

Answer \nThere are very few reasons for a positive pregnancy test\n\n1) you are pregnant\n2) you've had medication that has the HCG hormone in it (infertility drugs normally)\n3) you read the test after the time allowed in the instructions so now the result doesn't count\n4) chemical pregnancy (results in early miscarriage)\n5) an HCG producing tumor.. very rare\n\nhaving an irregular cycle won't make you have a positive test when you are not pregnant, most likely you are indeed pregnant\n\n~pawsalmighty

Can you still be pregnant if you had an irregular period and you have symptoms of pregnancy but a pregnancy test was negative?

Yes, there is still a possibility of being pregnant. The most accurate test you can get for pregnancy is a blood test by your doctor. Blood tests more accurately detect the level of hCG than do urine tests and the urine test you could get at the doctor is no different than the ones you buy at the store. Until you find out for sure, be sure to make healthy choices and take care of your body. . answer irregular periods is caused by stress, diet, weight, genetics and age. Early symptoms of pregnancy are: . Missed period . Headaches . Metallic taste in mouth (reported by some) . Frequent urination . Headaches . more tired than usual . excessive hunger . sore breasts . Positive pregnancy test . If your period is irregular, it makes it difficult to gauge when the time at which it is appropriate to take a urine pregnancy test. A negative nest does not necessarily mean that you are not pregnant - you may have tested too soon. Try another test in a week or so, or visit your doctor for a blood test.

My period is 4-10 days late I have irregular periods I have taken 2 pregnancy tests They were negative I have noticed a change in my nipple size could i be pregnant what should I do?

Answer . \nI was four days late before I could get an early detection test to turn positive. Sometimes your levels of HCG are not really high.\n. \n1. Have you tried an early detection preg test or are you using regular ones? The early detection tests will detect small levels (around 25 units) where the regular tests only detect around 100 units.\n. \n2. A blood test at the doctor will show up positive with only very small amounts.\n. \n3. You could just wait a little bit longer. I know it is frustrating, but it is worth it in the end!

Late period and negative pregnancy test?

If you really aren't pregnant and the test said it was negative. Then it is negative. If you were worried about being pregnant then this could be why you're late. Stress can delay your period. KEEP IN MIND that when people refer to the possibility of having a 'false reading' from a pregnancy test... there can only be a FAKE NEGATIVE, not a fake positive. If it says positive then it's more than sure that you are pregnant. But some women take these test too early, or before their missed period, and that will give you a fake negative. So the best way to find out is through a doctor/clinic.

When is the best time to take a pregnancy test if you have irregular periods?

In my opinion ,since I don't know exactly how your cycles run .I would say to look back to the last period you had and depending on how long it's been and your cycles(every other month ,3 times a year),if it has been longer than it usually is between periods I would do 1 now. I hope this helps or at least gives you something to judge by. And remember to do it first thing in the morning.
