When should I take another pregnancy test?

I had unprotected sex on the 2nd of the month. My ovulating began on the 3rd. I had one-time of blood from peeing four days before my periods. My periods are due on the 18th, and I’ve always had regular periods of 28 days cycle. I don’t take BC. I have headaches, cramps, heartburns, pain in my legs, shoulder pains for no reason, and I’m feeling tired and fatigued more than ever. Also, sometimes my symptoms go away for few hours. My pregnancy tests are still showing negatives. Does it sound like I’m pregnant? How long should I wait to take another pregnancy test?

Go to the doctor and have a blood test done. It does sound like it would be too early to pick up on a urine test but it could also be that you’re overthinking. I understand your concern but we can’t see inside your uterus and it’s hard to diagnose a pregnancy based on described symptoms.

Like at least 2-3 weeks. This is way too early.

Get a test from the dollar tree, take it first thing in the morning and you will have your answer

Wait at least 15 days from when you had unprotected sex. If the urine test is negative twice already but still no period. I would call my doctor to get checked

I don’t to scare you but when you speak to a doctor please mention the pain in your shoulder… it can be transferred pain if possible ectopic pregnancy… I only know this as it happened to my sister a few years ago and it went unnoticed and ended up rupturing xx

I have gotten early positives from First Response and Clearblue (the one with pink lines)
Wait until first morning urine and test with an “Early Result” test. Blood test from Dr would be the most accurate :blush:

Go and get a blood test done. Its most accurate

It sounds like your about to start your period.

It’s a little too early to test for the hormone in your urine but you can get a blood test at the doctors which is more accurate. Please go to your doctor and explain the pain in your shoulder, I don’t want to worry you but this could be a sign of ectopic pregnancy

Obviously everyone is different, but I knew the day I missed my period and took a test that day, it was positive and I now have a 7 month old. Over thinking/stressing about it can make your period act funny. But I would wait a few days and test again if you still haven’t started. If its still negative, see your Dr.

You need to wait a couple of weeks before taking one again. Just to make sure. If you are in fact pregnant, your body wouldn’t have had the time to produce the hormone needed for a at home test. The 100% way to know for sure sure, is get a blood test at OBGYN. Good luck

I’d wait to test again. Since your period was supposed to start on the 18th and it’s only the 19th it’s likely your testing too early wait to test until a week from the 18th if there’s no period it’s likely the hgc is not strong enough yet and it’s giving you negative results. If still negative then I’d get blood work done because by then there should be a faint line

Go ahead and take a test. I got a positive 10 days before my missed period. I only tested bc I was spotting and I’m very regular. Plus this is my third pregnancy so yeah… I know how this goes lol. I had the nausea leading up to spotting. Had a period on the 4th of January that lasted four days then got a positive test on January 22. FYI I used the clearblue brand that tells you 6 days sooner. I usually use the dollar tree tests but I needed to know ASAP bc of my health. Also use the first pee of the morning bc it has the highest level of hcg hormones.

I took a test next day and it was positive … but I was throwing up the next morning as well.

Pregnancy tests are very accurate now days for the most part and can show positives all lost immediately now, well that was 22 years ago for me lol. Last test I ever took.

They say for a confirmation to wait until your period has actually fully passed …

Supposed to wait until your period is late often won’t show up until 6 weeks pregnant.
