Im 23 and actively trying for a bay since May 2009. Have a regular cycle of 28 days (maybe a day or two either side). I had mt last period 28th October 2009 and nothing since. Have done 2 home pregnancy tests, both negative. Visited Dr. who said after 2 negatives its unlikely im pregnant, and thats all he said on the matter. I had an abortion unfortunately 4 and a hlaf yrs ago. I was 9 wks by the time i found out and even then the pregnancy test only showed a very faint positive. What do you think? Could I be pregnant? Im going out of my mind with not knowing. Please help. Thanks in advance.

Thank you for your reply.
I did another test this morning, and again it was negative. I have done one digital test, and 2 predictors with the lines.
I have an appointment with a Health Advisor this afternoona t the doctors so I'm going to see if they can shed some light on this for me. Will let you know how I get on.

Dear mt1986

Thanks for your question and welcome!

Normally I'd agree with your doctor that two negative tests means it's unlikely you're pregnant but since you have had a positive pregnancy test before, and only got a faint line at 9 weeks along, you may be a person with low hCG levels at the beginning of pregnancy. So if you are usually very regular and actively trying for a baby, you may now "show" on a pregnancy test until you're a few weeks into your pregnancy. This is unusual but it does happen with some women.

Ask your doctor to schedule a lab draw for you - you don't even have to see him, just report for a quick blood draw.

Were the tests you took the ones with lines or a +/- sign or were they digital?

Will you let us know the result? I'm hoping for a big old positive for you!
