Could I be pregnant? Is it normal to get a neg test result 6 days after my missed period?

Posted by crvnamanda

My husband has the Vasclip put on over five years ago. We have been together sexually for over four years and I have not gotten pregnant. Last month he got a lump down there and then I missed my period for Aug. I have not been late or missed a period in over four years. I have the nasua, the fever, the gas and bloating, I have the sore breast and well as a slight color change. I have had the cramps that felt like I was going to start and I didn't but those have quit now.  All of the signs are pointing toward pregnancy except the many hpts I have taken that all say neg. Am I taking them to early???

No... today's home pregnancy tests are extremely sensitive.  Results are accurate five days before your missed period.


Pregnancy isn't the only reason for the symptoms you are experiencing.  You could have had a delayed ovulation (due to any stress you may have had during the first half of your cycle or medications taken or illness)- which would naturally push your cycles back. 

If you still feel as though you may be pregnant then I would suggest you go to your physican/GYN and request a blood beta be drawn.  At the same time they could also check for your progesterone levels (to see if you've ovulated this cycle).
