Doctor :   hi
Doctor :  
how can i help you?
User :   My period was due on Monday. On Saturday I spotted just once - very lightly. I've had a tad bit of cramping but still no period. I've had 3 kids - the last born in 2001 and two miscarriages(12/07 and 1/09). 3 pregnancy tests say I'm not pregnant - should I wait a bit longer on my period?
Doctor :   this seems to be a missed period and since your 3 pregnancy tests are negative

Doctor :  
you can wait a bit for your period
User :   okay. i watch the show "i didn't know i was pregnant" and wonder if i could be one of those women - sometimes their tests are negative but they are actually pregnant.
Doctor :   the chances of being pregnant with negative tests is less than 1 percent on the missed period day. two weeks after the missed period the chance of being pregnant is less than 0.001 %
