    Could I be pregnant?
    An_267827 posted:
    My period was due July 12th. I sometimes get cramps thinking my period is going to start but nothing. I've taken several tests and all negative. I've also had two blood tests. I'm just cautious because I had a tubal pregnancy 6 years ago and it took about 2 months after a missed period until I got a positive test. Not very many symptoms. I got a yeast infection, I've also been getting like 5 bloody noses a week. Nausea on and off, hot flashes. Has this happened to anybody and ended up being pregnant?

    Hi there and thanks for posting,

    If you think that there is a chance that you might be pregnant (even though you tested negative on a home pregnancy test), then the only way to confirm if you are pregnant is to get tested at your doctor's office.

    It says here that it is still possible for you to be pregnant even if you test negative. They recommend to wait one week if your period still has not started and to test again. If the repeat test is negative, probably you are not pregnant, but you should talk to your health professional about why you are not having periods.
