Although most pregnancy tests are quite reliable nowadays, it's always possible that the result is incorrect. To have more certainty, repeat the test a couple of times and if possible, with another brand of pregnancy test, if all these tests give a negative result, it's very probable (I would say 99%) that the person is not pregnant, but to be 100% sure, you can always pay a visit to a doctor or so.

Could you be pregnant if you got a regular 3-day period and have all the symptoms of pregnancy but pregnancy tests are negative?

If you had unprotected sex with your boyfriend for 5 months and you missed your period can you be pregnant?

You might be, so I recommend doing a test. Short Answer: YesLonger Answer: Any time you have unprotected sex with a male you run the risk of becoming pregnant.Long Answer: Often a missed period is the first clue that you are pregnant but there are many reasons you can miss a period. Another common clue to a possible pregnancy is sore or tender breasts. If you think you may be pregnant, take an over-the-counter pregnancy test. Please be aware that a negative test result for pregnancy does not necessarily mean that you are not pregnant. For the test to show a positive result, the threshold for a specific pregnancy related hormone needs to have been exceeded. This hormone varies from person to person, pregnancy to pregnancy and the length of pregnancy to date among other things but is accurate when the hormone has exceeded the threshold of the test. If the test result is positive, make an appointment with your doctor to confirm pregnancy.

Transsexual woman born with uterus 29 years old is it possible for a pregnancy?

That is a transsexual man. The gender term after the word transsexual is always who the person really is, not what their body was at birth. Calling a man born with female parts a woman is hurtful.But like anyone born with a uterus, pregnancy is usually possible. They would have to avoid taking male hormones when trying to get pregnant and during the course of the pregnancy. If they are on hormones, then they can only get pregnant if they can start menstruating.
