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.

During a health check for immigration purposes my 11 and a half year old daughter showed high levels of protein in her urine. Subsequent blood tests found her blood to be normal but her urine test shows microalbumin levels of 288 (they should be less than 20) and Urine ACR of 172.9 (should be less than 3.4). I was referred to a nephrologist and have to wait two weeks for the appointment. My concern is that this should have been treated with more urgency. She has no symptoms of illness at all. Please could you comment on this.

Hi there my 4 year daughter has suffered from urine infections and she had a really bad one at Christmas time where she had very high temp of 40c and when urine sample dipped it showed white blood cells, protein etc. Since Christmas she was very quiet, subdued and tired so much so the nursery had commented on how she was. She often complains of a sore tummy and I have put in other urine sample which came back clear for a urine infection however there was still blood present. Her GP has refered her to paediatrics but my concern is that she has had a low grade temp of 37.7 for weeks now and an on/off tummy pains, she is more lively now but still gets tired at times. I just wanted to know what to ask the paediatrians when I see them and if I should be concerned that theres maybe something else underlying.

Hi! I am Jun, 49 y.o., 5'3'', 160 lbs and had kidney stone treatment 20 years ago. My RBC reflected `too numerous to count' finding. I had urine culture, morphology and ultra sound tests performed. There is nothing painful I feel when urinating, no fever, etc. But I had five urinalysis already and was advised to drink lots of liquid but the condition `TNTC RBC' persists.
