Dr Owen : Hello
Dr Owen : Are you worried you are pregnant?
Dr Owen : what pregnancy tests did you use?
JACUSTOMER-4nh9i0zv- : Not really 2 tests are negative
JACUSTOMER-4nh9i0zv- : Clear blue tests
Dr Owen : Well you are not pregnant, and what has harmed is that you probably did not ovua
Dr Owen : you did not ovulate
Dr Owen : so this can cause you to miss a period.
Dr Owen : this occurs to woman all the time.
Dr Owen : and since the tests were negative after you missed your period, and if you used a name brand test, the test is accurate.
Dr Owen : this is very common and nothing to worry about, and this never is a sign of anything ominous
Dr Owen : If you have more questions please ask
Dr Owen : please click on EXCELLENT
Dr Owen : THANK YOU
JACUSTOMER-4nh9i0zv- : What about the slight bleed after inter course?
Dr Owen :

That is called Anovulatory bleeding - that means bleeding without having had ovulation.

Dr Owen :

So with a negative pregnant tests, especially two of them and if the tests have been Name Brand GOOD tests - then the tests are very accurate and you are not pregnant.

Dr Owen :

and you did not ovulate this cycle - that is very common and happens to every woman a few times during her fertile years

Dr Owen :

I wish you well

Dr Owen :

If you have more questions ,please ask

JACUSTOMER-4nh9i0zv- : So what should I do or expect to happen
Dr Owen :

Actually there is nothing for you do to, but You can get a Thyroid TSH blood test - sometimes this can be a sign of a thyroid problem - which is very Easy to treat with medication such as levothyroxine

Dr Owen :

but missing a period, and a negative pregnancy test is really not very serious

I wish you well
