I'm four days late, took three pregnancy tests they came back neg. I've been cramping and very emotional with sore breasts. I've been late but two days within the normal never this long. I don't know what could be happening. I stopped the pill last year and got 'regular' mid august beginning of September. Yes we've been trying to get pregnant but I'm seeing negative pregnancy tests. Should I schedule a appointment or wait and see if my period comes within the next few days.

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to our community for advice.

Levels of hCG, which is the hormone produced during pregnancy, can be detected in urine about 12 to 14 days following conception. Depending on when you last had unprotected intercourse, you may have tested too early.

You can wait until your period is late by at least one week, or schedule an appointment with your gynecologist for a blood pregnancy test. Levels of hCG can be detected earlier, about 11 days following conception.

Hello! I had unprotected sex but he came outside. I've already had my period three times and I haven't had any pregnancy symptoms. But last week I squeezed one of my boobs and a white discharge came out of my nipple and I got really scared thinking it could be milk and that I could be pregnant. The discharge comes out only if I squeeze my boobs. What could it be?

Hello Anonymous,

If you have had three periods and there was no ejaculation, you are not pregnant.

Any time you notice breast discharge, you should contact your physician.

Normal nipple discharge more commonly occurs in both nipples and is often released when the nipples are compressed or squeezed. Some women who are concerned about breast secretions may actually cause it to worsen. They do this by repeatedly squeezing their nipples to check for nipple discharge. In these instances, leaving the nipples alone for a while may help the condition to improve.
