Can I be pregnant ?

Hello. I was supposed to start my period on the 17 of this month and i didnt have anything until today and it is a little redish and i have cramping. I have been trying to get pregnant for about 3 months now and i was wondering if it is possible that i can still be pregnant? I took a pregnancy test on the 16 and it was negative. Can it be that it was too early to get the right result?

hi,you may be pregnant,as the urine pregnancy test you have taken may be too early.repeat urine pregnancy test once in 2days for 1 week or do serum b hcg test to conclude if are pregnant or not.only history which is saying that you may not be pregnant is reddish discharge with cramps.get a pelvic ultrasound to confirm findings along with good gynaecologist consultation. wish you good luck.

Hi! Please do a beta hcg which is a blood test for pregnancy hormone .this can be positive even if the urine test is negative .also please meet a obgy as ur cramps and spotting may have to be evaluated .if bhcg turns out to be of pregnancy levels then u may need a scan to see where the pregnancy is and also whether u need any hormone support. So go ahead and good luck!

Try the test again after a week.Generally a period delay by more than 6 days is when you start taking the pregnancy test at home.
