Absolutely!! When your period is late, or even when it's not late but you may have had unsafe sex, and you are worried you are pregnant your mind can play some mean tricks on you. There is only one way to find out if that is the truth or not...TAKE AN HPT (home pregnancy test)! Most hpts can tell if you are pregnant on the day of your missed period and some even before the time you are 2 weeks late it should definitely show up on an hpt.

Had pregnancy symptoms and was a week late both tests were negative Now have my period but mostly clots not really bleeding I am afraid it's miscarriage any thoughts?

More than likely if the pregnancy came back negative then you were not pregnant but in some cases a woman's body can reject the baby in the first trimester usually before she knows she pregnant because of some chromosomal defects. This is no indication that you were pregnant, miscarried, or are not pregnant. Over the counter pregnancy tests are good for telling if you are pregnant, but are not so reliable for telling if you are not--that is they can show a false negative. Your best course of action would be to see your doctor. If for nothing else than to set your mind at ease.

How teen pregnancy can be improved?

You took two pregnancy test and both say positive and lately you been having mild pain in your lower stomach could this be an infection or your pregnant and you not really late yet with your period?

If you had two positive pregnancy tests, then you are more than likely pregnant. Your body produces a hormone when you are pregnant that is only present during pregnancy thus showing positive tests. You should see your doctor about the pain, you could have something else going on. Pain is the body's way of telling you something isn't right and it shouldn't be ignored especially if you are pregnant. You are probably pregnant. On rare occasions you can encounter a false positive due to improper testing, expired pregnancy tests, rare medical conditions such as certain types of cancer, evaporation lines, a recent pregnancy or a chemical pregnancy.

My friend missed her last period and she has all the symptoms of pregnancy but she's a virgin is she pregnant?

I would consider the fact that, if she's telling you that she's a virgin, she is lying. Don't tell her that right out but suggest the two of you go to a clinic so she can get tested and see what happens from there.

How do you know it its a phantom pregnancy?

When you have had negative urine results, negative blood tests, negative ultrasound and clear on vaginal ultrasound, an exam by your OB/GYN telling you uterus is down low and normal then slap yourself. When that much medical science says you are not pregnant then you are not or that chances are so slight it would be miraculous. A person must make a decision to except what has been proved by all test including no hcg in the body. When you except this the lie you have believed that you are pregnant is exposed and symptoms disappear. Even if you have one or two more symptoms you ignore them and you body will stop the nonsense for a phantom pregnancy.

Can you have surgery when pregnant?

It very much depends on the surgery. In general, elective surgery should not be done during a pregnancy. Emergency surgery, such as appendicits, gall bladder attack, trauma such as in a car accident or a broken bone, sometimes needs to be done inspite of a pregnancy. If you are pregnant and are contemplating elective surgery, certainly your doctor needs to know that you are pregnant. Do not go into any surgery knowing you are pregnant without telling your surgeon.

Why is my boyfriend obsessed with pregnancy?

There is no telling if he is more interested in sex and using pregnancy as a lure for you or if he just wants to get pregnant with you. In this case, make sure your birth control method is taken care of by you, so that you have time to sort this out. A baby is quite a responsibility to take on with a boyfriend.

You have no symptoms of pregnancy other than a late period can you be pregnant?

Maybe. Every woman experiences different symptoms of pregnancy -- You can think of it as every newly conceived baby telling his/her mother hello in a different way -- so having "no symptoms other than a late period" isn't a good indicator. It is very normal for women who are naturally cycling (i.e. not on the pill) to have some variation in their cycle length. If you exceed 21 days from the day of ovulation (day of most cervical fluid) you are almost certainly a new mother. You could also loosely say you're likely pregnant if you go a week past your previous longest cycle without a period. If so, there is wonderful news -- you have been gifted with an irreplaceable part of the next generation. Congratulations!!!! And, obviously, if you do end up having your period you are not pregnant.

Can you get acne when your pregnant?

Yes, acne is common in pregnancy. You tend to have acne during pregnancy because of all your horomones.

If you don't see a change after the baby has come you may want to go to your local family doctor, or dermatologist. Good luck!!

What stops your period during pregnancy?

during pregnancy hormones are released telling your body you are pregnant. Your body is smart enough to know that if you are pregnant you shouldn't be able to get pregnant with an additional fetus. You no longer release eggs from your overies. the blood from your period is the protective lining for the baby, So the blood will continue to build over the months. After giving birth you bleed all that blood. This is the only purpose for your period. when your body says"i'm not pregnant" you get your period, the blood isn't needed.

Could you be still pregnant if your home test comes out negative and you get your period?

Yes, you could still be pregnant. Home tests are only 50% accurate in telling you whether you are or not when it comes out negative, but if it comes out positive then it is 99.9%, because there is a hormone your body produces only if you are pregnant called hCG but it can be very low at first in some women and a home test usually only picks up on it when it reaches 20+. I would concentrate more on the period. Was it a normal period? If it was an abnormally short or light period, chances you're pregnant increase. If it was a normal period, than that combined with the negative results on a pregnancy test probably mean you're not pregnant, but if you're having symptoms, you should still be careful and healthy, because its rare but not unheard of to have your period while you're pregnant and get negative pregnancy tests while you're pregnant.

When can you find out the day you fell pregnant?
