If you have read my previous post you would know that I am six days late, have pregnancy symptoms and I am testing negative.
I feel pregnant.
I spoke to a ramdon doctor and she told me that if I have symptoms then I will test positive. She made it seems like it’s not common for people to have symptoms and it to just be too early to tell with a test.
I have never heard this.
She also said that the only way my test would be negative is if I conceived in the last two weeks.
Anyone know if this is true?

If you conceived in the last 2 weeks, there is a chance that the fertilized egg has not yet implanted into the uterus. You won’t get a positive test until implantation occurs.

I understand that but she said that is the ONLY way i would get a negative. meaning, if i conceived prior to two weeks ago the test would definitely be positive.

Basically, you won’t get a positive test until at LEAST 9 or 10 days after you’ve ovulated… But there are some women who don’t test positive until way later. I say just keep testing and you will either get a positive or you’ll get your period. Good luck!

Yes, typically if you are 14dpo (or more…. meaning you conceived more than 2 weeks ago) you would have enough HCG to test positive on a pregnancy test.
If you are not testing positive on the test you are likely not pregnant.

@jessagirl13: bahahaha – “I spoke to a ramdon doctor and she told me that if I have symptoms then I will test positive. She made it seems like it’s not common for people to have symptoms and it to just be too early to tell with a test.” – then I’ve been pregnant more times than I can count in the past 2 years!!!
Unfortunately, PMS symptoms are exactly the same as early pregnancy symptoms, so very few people notice any difference. In fact, the one time I got a BFP (for a day), was the only time I had NO symptoms.
All the best though – I hope you ARE pregnant (if you want to be) – but this advice is whack!!

It is definitely possible to experience pregnancy-like symptoms and not be pregnant. Like the PP said, they can be similar to PMS symptoms.
If you are six days past your expected period and have a fairly regular cycle, you should test positive if you’re pregnant. If your cycles are irregular (and you’re not charting), there’s no telling how many days past ovulation you actually are.
I would keep testing with FMU for a couple of days. Or ask your doc for a blood test.

It definitely is possible to experience the symotpms and not be pregnant…..it is also possible to actually be pregnant and not test positive YET. Your hormone levels have to change enough to make the test say positive. They do not change right away.
My friend took a test every other day for a week and it kept saying negative. She went to the doctor and her blood tests said negatigve. She was 100% SURE she was pregnant. A couple days she went back in per her doctor’s request and her HCG levels were through the roof. She WAS pregnant.

Definitely possible to experience symptoms and test negative. Been there, done that.

I had all the symptoms this month – and got my period today. Nausea, dizziness, food irritability, tired, moody…
Sorry you’re in the “am I or am I not” stage – it sucks!

You can still get your period in the beginning months of pregnancy too…it’s just not usually like a “normal” period.
