When is the best time to go for a pregnancy test?

On the 17th of October I had I watery brown discharge. I was to start my period on the 22nd of oct and have yet to start it. I am not certain if this was implantation bleeding or not, It had no odor and I have no pain I’ve just been getting a lot of headaches. I took a pregnancy test but i Believe I may have tested too early, when would be the best time to retake the test ?

Hello,

I can suggest you not to do another pregnancy test if not passed 5 days of delayed period.
There is a possibility of being implantation bleeding if you had recently unprotected intercourse.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hello,

You can retake the test after 5 days. It is best to test with the early morning sample of urine. You can further confirm it by getting a blood test done.

Hi. I am 37 years old. My period is 16 days late on my cycle. I took a pregnancy test and it came back negative. At this time, I have a rotator cuff injury that I am worried may need surgery. Lately, I have been sleepy and experience headaches. I am not sure if my cycle is late from stress caused from not knowing if I will need surgery for my shoulder, or if there is a chance I could be pregnant, although the test came back negative. When would be the best time to try a pregnancy test again, or should I just go to my physician and take a test there?

I have taken a few negative pregnancy urine tests - but still think I may be pregnant. My stomach is growing and very bloated looking with some excess skin there. I am a thin person, and that is the only place that any weight has gained on my body. Should I go get a blood test or ultrasound?
