Hi,

Thanks for posting your query.

Once you had periods there are no chances of pregnancy. Withdrawal bleeding only occurs when there is no pregnancy, so the layers of uterus get shed and you have periods.

Means having periods rules out pregnancy.

Once you are pregnant and blood test detects pregnancy early then any other test. A test for pregnancy can not be negative in case of pregnancy.

I hope this clarifies your concern.

Regards,

Dr.Pragnesh
