ask: 

19 days late, negative pregnancy tests - how common is this - women to have low HCG?

Hi

I know the questions have been over-asked but I really need some advice. My last period was 5th Jan and I had unprotected sex on 12th Jan (Day 8th). I am now 19 days late and no sign of my period. My periods are typically 26-30 days and I am very regular - except for the last one which was a week late and only lasted 3-4 days (normally it's 5-6).

Symptoms-wise, I noticed extra discharge few days after period was due and I felt mildly dizzy a few times. Have been waking up a few times a night to pee. Nipples were sore for half a day last week, when I was ten days late. Was at a car showroom with my bf last weekend and felt nauseated by the smell of new leather.

Thing is, I've tested 4 times and it's all negative (last test was today). Am I stressed? Well, kinda, but not anymore than I usually am. Wondering if it's common for some women to just not register enough HCG to get a positive test. Some background: I was pregnant about 7 years ago and I only picked it up after I was 2 months plus. Aborted at 3 months :(

A part of me really hopes I'm pregnant and I keep thinking about it. Please help.

Hi Anon!

Early morning pee isn't really necessary anymore with pregnancy tests being so advanced these days. A pregnancy test would be accurate by now but not all women show a positive (most do).

If you have been having unprotected sex then a blood test at your doctor's office is a solution. Good luck!

Hi Anon
Pregnancy is possible since not all women have positive tests - I suggest you take a blood test at the doctor's office.
Good luck!

Hey ladies, I have had 3 beautiful girls, each one has taken different times to read a hcg level. My first I did not get a positive urine test until I was 8 weeks along, my second child I did not get a positive until I was 11 weeks along. And my third I was 4 weeks. Doctors kept telling me I was not pregnant and I would believe them. Each time I would take a positive test into show my doctor he would say oh you must have ovulated late but my ultrasound would prove them wrong.
Hope this helps anyone who feels lost in these times waiting to either get your period or that positive result

I can say that I am in the same boat. I am 19 days late on my period. My last period was December 27th. I've tried several test and all came out negative including the blood test at my doctor. He wants to start me on some meds to make my period come on but I dont want to do that. So, I'm kind of stuck because I don't know what to do. I do have some symptoms of pregnancy but not all. I also have a dou le uterus. Thats another reason im stuck and afraid.
