Pregnancy Tests

Could you be pregnant if your period was a week late and are having spotting afterwards and are having pregnancy symptoms but the pregnancy test is negative?

Yes you could. Pregnancy tests are 97% effective. So if 100 people took a test and all received a negative, approximatly 3 of them would actually be pregnant, even though they had a negative result.

To find out for sure whether you are pregnant or not i would advise yu to visit your doctor, he would be able to do a blood test which is slightly more sensitive than a home pregnancy test.

It may be that the hormones released by the implanted embryo may not be enough to show up on a hoe pregnancy test. Try again in a week or so and if you still have symptoms and a negative result then go to your doctor.

If you have a negative pregnancy test, you are probably not pregnant. What makes you think it's not your period? (ie. did you have a pos pregnancy test earlier?)

Yes, you can.Spotting is a sign of pregnancy.

yes you can still be pregnant your hormone levels may not be high enough yet for the test to detect

About one half of all pregnant women have spotting very early in pregnancy.

You need a pregnancy test to know if you are pregnant. Spotting brown is simply old blood and not a determining factor of pregnancy. Answer: It could just be your period

It's not likely, but it is possible. Take a pregnancy test, and if it is negative, then see your doctor.

Sometimes women have implantation spotting that they confuse with their period. You should take a pregnancy test to see if you are pregnant.

Yes you could be pregnant. Wait a few more days and do another test. If still negative & no period, then see your doctor.

Spotting is a common side effect with contraceptive implants. Signs of pregnancy are absent periods and positive pregnancy test.

Yes, a pap smear can cause some spotting afterwards. Call your Dr. if it becomes heavy or you have cramping.

Spotting usually happens when a woman was pregnant, and lost the baby/had a miscarriage early in the pregnancy.

You could be pregnant. Take a pregnancy test

You are unlikely to be pregnant on the implant. Signs of pregnancy are absent bleeding and positive pregnancy test.

Not all women spot. Some women will have spotting with 1 pregnancy and none with the next. If you think you are pregnant, see your doctor or get a test.
