When you get pregnant your body produces a pregnancy hormone that the HPT picks up. That is how it knows your pregnant. In early pregnancy the hormone is not always strong enough to be detected, that is why they suggest you wait until you miss you period to take the HPT. That is not to say it won't detect it, every pregnancy is different. If you want to know before you miss your period you should go to a doctor.

Yes. Brownish discharge two days before one's period does not definitively confirm pregnancy.

If your cycle is regular, no you will not be ovulating 5 days before your period is due so no pregnancy is possible.

Yes, she can. If she misses her period she should then take a pregnancy test

You could be. If you miss your period you should take a pregnancy test.

You can get pregnant if you have sex with him 8 days before your period. You can actually get pregnant at almost any point during your menstrual cycle and should use protection if you want to avoid pregnancy.

Yes -- with most pregnancy tests you can tell a pregnancy soon after conceiving

Hello there. Some pregnant women, before they know for certain they are pregnant, experience "bad" PMS symptoms. Period symptoms can be a indication of pregnancy if the period doesn't arrive after a few days. If this happens, do a pregnancy test.

A home pregnancy test can detect the pregnancy hormone starting around 10 days after conception.

You might be pregnant. Most pregnancy tests can detect pregnancy on the first day of your missed period, some three or more days before.

There are no days before your period, when you already are pregnant. As soon as you are pregnant your next due period at the 4th will not come. When you are without periods for 2 months, it is very likely that you are pregnant. Many women don't know, that after 10 days after their last period, they are in a period of another 10 days that hey can become pregnant. Mostly it is only 7 days. So that means that 21 days between your period you cannot become pregnant. Short: Period + 10 days free. + 8 days pregnancy possible. + 10 days free. Dr. Phylopi

Probably not, unless you are pregnant with multiples.

You cannot get pregnant 4 days before your period. You get pregnant when you ovulate and that is usually 14 days before your period. 4 days before your period there is no egg to be fertilised.However, you can get pregnant 4 days before the theoretical date when you should be getting your period if your cycle was perfectly regular. You may ovulate later or earlier than usual at any time (it happens a lot) and you can get pregnant at any point.Regardless of when you conceive, home pregnancy tests usually work two weeks after conception. If your cycles are irregular and you are not sure when you ovulated or when to expect your period, testing once a week up to the moment when you get you period is a good idea.

Yes, you can so use protection unless you're trying to get pregnant and take a pregnancy test if you miss your next period.

If you are pregnant you are unlikely to get your period.

You can be up to two weeks late and not be pregnant but to be safe you should take a pregnancy test after you are seven days late.

Yes, you can be pregnant, your period stops after pregnancy, if you recently had sex and your period stopped early you probably are pregnant.

Some forms of pregnancy tests can sense the pregnancy hormones up to eight days before your missed period. These are very sensitive and could cause false positives.
