Hello ,

My Husband aad i have been trying to concieve a baby for a a couple motnhs now, we have came up with several conclusions of why we cant, but were just too afraid for them to be true, so we have not gone to the doctor to test our theories.
We have been sexually active all the time being and my "fertile days" according to my gynecologist, now its januray and im one month behind on my period, i usually get it the 12 or when im early the 3rd, i didnt believe at first i was pregnant becaus ei have no pregnancy symptoms, i took the pt the 15th and it came out negative :( I went to get a urine test at a pt center and she told me it came negative, and that i was too soon. Like i said its not the 31st of january and today i spotted on my underwear its not my full on period and i am having a bit of nausea, NOT VERY MUCH though, a bit of dizziness as well and cramping are those signs of my period coming in? or A Possible pregnancy? I HOPE ITS A PREGNANCY! But i dotn want to get my hopes up neither my husbands. IS it a high possibility i could be pregnant??
Thanks for your help.

Hello Bashful,

I can appreciate how much you and your husband want to conceive and understand your hesitation to get your hope up.

During pregnancy, the cells that form the placenta produce a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin or hCG. Levels of hCG can first be detected by a blood test about 11 days after conception and about 12 to 14 days after conception by a urine test. In general, the hCG levels will double every 72 hours.

With newer home pregnancy tests that detect very small amounts of hCG, it is possible to test as early as seven days past ovulation. However, there is also a good chance that implantation has not occurred yet or that you are not producing hCG at a high enough level to be detected by a home pregnancy test.

For best results, it is still recommended to wait until you have missed your period or 14 days past ovulation. I suggest you try one more test, be certain to read and follow the directions carefully.

Please keep us updated,
