It is highly unlikely.Maybe the kit you are using to do the test is faulty.
Get a USG done to confirm

There are many causes of missed periods like stress,harmonal disturbances,thyroid disfucntion etc. So you should go for U.S.G. for confermation of pregnancy.
If pregnancy is not present,following tests should be performed-
s.estrogen,progesterone,&prolectin level.
s.thyroid profile
C.B.P.with E.S.R.
Show the result to doctor & get examined.

Before me and my girlfriend used to be in relation she used to have period problem , she didn t had her period for 3 month. Doctor said it was because of some kind hormone problem and gave her some med. after few day of taking med she had her period and also after a month . but after 2 month her period stopped again. we both are very sexually active and did home pregnancy urine test 2 time after about 40 day and 50 days but the result was negative. how accurate is urine pregnancy test ? we both are very tensed because we come from the culture where having sex before marriage is very big deal.

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?

I was given a 1 mg Estergen pill for hot flashes to take after bladder surgery to correct my prolapsed bladder but the doctor s assistant did not give me the Progesterone with it. I do still have my ovaries and uterius. after taking the Esterdoil for 9 months without Progesterone, I have started bleeding. I went in to see the doctor last week and he told me I should have been taking Progesterone also. So he took me off of the Estregen and gave me a Progesterone pill to take for 10 days. If I should stop bleeding on my on before I start taking the Progesterone, is it necessary to still take the Progesterone? I am dreading taking the harmone to make me have a heavy period?

Since last spring, I ve been experiencing some very, weird symptoms sometimes to the pont where I cannot function. Last spring I started experiencing stomach bloating, weakness, dizziness, muscle spasms, severe depression, anxiety, etc. I had tons of blood tests, was seen by a gastroenterologist and an endocrinologist, and a dermatologist with no answers. I ve been keeping a log of my symptoms and I ve seen a pattern here. For a long time, I was taking progesterone cream to regulate my cycle. A saliva hormone test revealed estrogen dominance and weak ovulatory cycles. This was done at age 24. I had to take the drug Clomid to get pregnant which was age 28. Delivered at age 29. I saw the endocrinologist in Feb of 2011. Hormone testing results came back normal. She told me to get off all supplements including progesterone cream and get retested in 3 months. It s been 3 months now and symptoms seem to come and go around my period. And off the progesterone cream, my cycle length seems to get longer. Current cycle length is 50 some days. Got period this Thursday and symptoms started Sunday before that Thursday. They include headaches, fatigue, muscle weakness, eye twitching and burning, numbness/tingling in arms/legs, etc, nausea, intense depressiona nd anxiety, diarrhea and constipation, and the most troubling symptom is burning, stinging, itchy skin. Where the burning and stinging occurs I get white spots in those areas. The white spots don t go away, I just get more the next cycle when the burning and stinging occur again. This is now noticeably connected to my period. When I was on the progesterone cream, it happened all month long. When i got off the progesterone cream it happens around my period. I m currently waiting to see if the symptoms disappear when my period ends, which by the way is only light brown or red discharge when i wipe after using the toilet. Have a history of having a D&C and hydrothermablation done 3 years ago. Been 5 years since giving birth to my daughter. Do you think this could be autoimmune progesterone dermatitis? Should I see an immunologist?

I went through menopause about 7-8 years ago. Shorty after I started having to take thyroid medication, and started having problems with restless legs, which has gotten much worse. I also have serious sleep problems and despite walking regularly I continue to gain weight around my middle. My cholesterol is high, and I continue to have serious hot flashes. I ve been reading about hormone replacement therapy and it sounds like I have about every symptom of progesterone deficiency. Is it too late to try it?
