I am in the same situation, and from all I have read on this subject, yes, you could definitely be pregnant being one week late, even though the test shows negative. It takes longer for some women than others, to produce the pregnancy hormone hcg at a high enough concentration to show up on a home pregnancy test. Also, the tests vary in the amounts of the hormone they are able to detect. Some can detect as little as 20 or 25mIU of hcg, while others need as much as 100mIU. However, time will tell for sure if you are pregnant. I have read stories of women who had a negative test after being two weeks late, and then had a positive one a week later. I know for certain that I am pregnant because I recognize the tell-tale signs that I have had in the past. I began to worry when the test came back negative this morning, but after all I have read, I see that every women is different and every pregnancy is different. Hope this helps!


I am in the same situation as well. I tested a week before my period was due because i was having symptoms but it came out negative. Now my period is 4 days late and i did have spotting. I hope i am pregnant. I have a feeling that i am. I will test again in a week if my period still doesn't come. Please do let me know if you get a positive pregnancy test soon. Thanx.

I am ALSO in the same situation as all 3 of you. I am a week late for my period. On the day my period was due I had a little bit of brown blood and that was it. Nothing else after it. I am having symptoms too, headaches, sore breasts I've broken out in acne like carzy, and I'm urinating mor frequently. And yet I've had 3 negative pregnancy tests....

I also had the same..i had a tiny spot of blood in my discharge for 2 days but nothing came of it! I am a week and a half late and have had period like cramps but no period plus my breasts have swelled from today! I did a test which came out negative..i was on the pill but was taking antibitoics which stop it from working and had going to go to docotrs but am worried it could be something more serious!

Well, since you have had ALL the pregnancy symptoms and no period, you could be pregnant! But since your home pregnancy test was negative you couldn't be pregnant. You may want to go to your doctor and ask him if you are pregnant.

Hello! If you had a normal period and a negative pregnancy test, you wont be pregnant. Yes you can have a negative pregnancy test. A Clinic can do a simple blood test to be a 100 percent positive. Also, some women have had period symptoms and pregnancy at the same time.If you get your period and negative test it is 99% that you are not pregnant all the best!

No you are definitely not pregnant. You will not have a heavy period and be pregnant.

If you had many symptoms of pregnancy including a missed period last month but negative pregnancy test then this month you had cramping and then you started and still have symptoms can you still be pregnant?

Yes you can ,but its very dangorous for your baby!!!! --- If the test is negative and you are on your period it is highly unlikely that you are pregnant. Pregnancy symptoms are the same as pre-menstrual symptoms. If you are concerned have a blood test done. All the best!

If you have a negative test and a period you are probably not pregnant. If you are paranoid about being pregnant you may be seeing symptoms that are not really there.

I missed a period last month but I have a period now could I still be pregnant?

If you had normal period (not short! not light!) - your chances for pregnancy are about 1%. If you had unusual period + pregnancy symptoms - you chances or pregnancy are 50%-60%.

if you are feeling no symptoms and your pregnancy tests are turning out negative i would advise you to see your doctor. he/she will then be able to carry out tests to determine whether or not you are pregnant and rule out any problems

Take a pregnancy test. If it is negative and you are still having symptoms, visit your doctor to find out why.

You could by a small chance, but, you might also imagine the symptoms (phantom pregnancy). Or your pregnancy is too small at the moment. Try testing again in a week or two (when your period hasn't started). If still negative and you got the symptoms and no period then go see a doctor.

If you have all the symptoms take a test. If negative you are not pregnant. Otherwise see a doctor.All the best!

It is highly unlikley since menstural symptoms often mock pregnancy symptoms. Especially since you had your period that means the egg did not get fertilized. But if you have anymore concerns you should contact your doctor.

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.

you might be pregnant, but i doubt it. the symptoms were probably just pms, and if you were worried/excited that you might be pregnant, the stress could have delayed your period. if you dont get your period by the end of the week , take another test - if you are pregnant you may have just tested too early. if you still think you are pregnant , but still get a negative result, see your dr.

it's possible to be pregnant with a negative pregnancy test. it can be a fault negative.

If you are on/had your period your probably not pregnant, but do a pregnancy test to be sure.

you could be. get a pregnancy test and check it out for sure.

There are many conditions which have similar symptoms to pregnancy or you may just be too early for a test to show positive. The amin sign that you are pregnant is that you have missed a period, if you have not missed a period I would look for some other explanation for your symptoms.

when in doubt, assume you are pregnant. then take a urine pregnancy test, and if that is negative. then you can also check by getting a blood pregnancy test.
