Is it possible to have all the sign of early pregnancy 4-6 days before your period and have a negative pregnancy test?
Let me first say that I have no medical training. But here's what I understand: To answer your question, yes. But things could go either way. You may be pregnant, and it may just not show up yet on a home pregnancy test. Or, you may not be pregnant. Be patient, wait a few more days until after you'd expect your period (wait at least 7 days), then try a test again. If it's still negative then, and you still feel like you might be pregnant, then go get a test at a doctor's office, because home pregnancy tests aren't always accurate. And if your home pregnancy test is positive, then go to the doctor anyway, to start getting prenatal care to have the best possible health for you and your baby. Start taking folic acid and regular prenatal vitamins now, too, if you aren't already. You can get them at any drug store. Taking 400 mcg (1 pill, usually) of folic acid every day will almost completely prevent some serious birth defects of the brain and spinal cord. All prenatal vitamins should contain at least 400 mcg of folic acid, so you can just take a regular prenatal vitamin if you want. Doctors say that all women who could potentially become pregnant should take folic acid supplements every day - not just when they're pregnant. One reason for this is that the major birth defects that folic acid prevents ("neural tube defects") happen about 3-4 weeks after conception - which usually means about 5-6 weeks after the start of your last period, when a lot of women haven't even figured out yet whether they're pregnant. Best wishes! There are several things that can contribute to a negative pregnancy test even if you are pregnant. Some medications can give you a false negative, the timing of the test can affect the results. If you did not follow directions properly; if you let the test sit for too long the results may read negative after a while. It is important to read the results within the amount of time given on the instructions of that particular pregnancy test you bought. If you did not perform the test properly (example: you drank a lot of fluids before taking the test, which can dilute your urine). Etc To ensure the best results: * Take the test in the morning, if possible, because your hCG (pregnancy hormone) levels are at it's highest * Don't drink a bunch of fluids before taking the test because it will dilute your urine and can affect the results * Take the test no more than 1 day before expected period. Although some test say that you can see results up to 5 days before your missed period, the percentage of accuracy is very low. * urinate for as long as possible on the foam-like strip * Check the results in the window frame of time suggested by the instructions of the pregnancy test.
