Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
Have you been under increased stress recently?
I wouldn't say any more than usual, I have 2 boys, 6 and 19 months so I can be very hands on..
When was the last pregnancy test done?
Was it today after one week of not having a period?
I took the last test on Thursday. yes today is exactly a week overdue
You should have the test repeated today.
If its negative then I would wait for another week or so to see if the periods normally come.
Is it worrying if I still have the same outcome.. no period or pregnancy, its not being pregnant that worries me that just means im still working I just don't normaly have late periods?
and both previous pregnancy showed up positive on the first tests.
Which is why I want to be sure.
Sometimes a pregnancy test can take up to a week to be positive.
Stress can cause hormonal problems that can lead to missed periods.
I see, even if I may have conceived early in the cycle?
One of the most common causes of absent periods other than pregnancy is stress.
yes because the urine test detects beta HCG only after it goes above a certain level.
A blood pregnancy test is the most accurate test.
So if there is any doubt one can have a blood pregnancy test done to be sure.
With all the negative tests that you have had its UNLIKELY to be pregnancy.
Ok so you would suggest to "chill out" have some space and then see if my period comes?
For the time being.
ok sounds great
