Question: Hi, I am three days late for my period. I took a pregnancy test on day after my missed period and it came out negative. I am never ever late. I was feeling nauseous the second day of missed period. And I had some spotting mid cycle which I've never had. Is it possible that I am pregnant?

Brief Answer:

Please get serum beta HCG tested at first.

Detailed Answer:


Following is my reply:

1) The possibilities of pregnancy are very very low in your situation.

2) However, I'd suggest you get serum beta HCG blood testing done which will help in ruling out pregnancy completely and also will be helpful for the peace of mind.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care
