i have been taking pills for almost ten years and last July 2015, i had recorded my period as follows:
Aug 20 till 22; Sept 15 till 17 and Oct 09 till 11, i had unprotected sex on 12 October, my next period is supposed to be on 3 Nov, however to date (13 Nov) i still don't have my period. I did the pregnancy test last 9, 10 and 12 and shows negative. Did i do the test too early, is there a possibility that i'm pregnant and the test was wrong? i am scheduled to see the doctor on 23 (the earliest date i can get) but i just can't wait and worried. Please help

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for coming to us with your concern of a possible pregnancy despite negative pregnancy test results.

Testing once your period was late by six days would have been accurate if you used an early response pregnancy test. Testing on the 10 and 12 of November was fine as long as you followed the directions carefully and used the first urine of the day, which is concentrated and gives the most accurate result.

I am skeptical if you would have conceived during unprotected intercourse only one day after you finished your period. That was much too early for ovulation, which happens about 14 days after the last day of your period.

I am glad that you have an appointment to see your doctor, even though you have to wait another 10 days. Try not to worry because stressing over this will only cause a further delay if indeed you are not pregnant.

Please keep us updated.
