Currently TTC, I got a smiley face on my OPK on 22/11 so we had intercourse on the 22 and 23/11.
┬áI had what I thought was implantation bleeding on the 28/11 (pink blood in a clear discharge when I wiped) following this I had cramps the next few days and feeling sick.
I took an early detection pregnancy test on the 30/11 and 2/12, both came back negative. Am I testing to early, the pregnancy test says you can test 6 days before your period. I'm due on the 5/12.
My cervix is very high up nearly unreachable and the opening is very much turned towards my back (not sure how it normally is before your due a period) I am also getting a creamy White discharge.
How long should I wait after what I thought was implantation bleeding to do a urine test?....or should I just accept the negative results.... I should be due my period on the 5/12 ...is there still hope for this month or should I just accept I'm not pregnant :(
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The cervix usually starts coming down before your expected period date. The symptoms that you describe could indicate early pregnancy symptoms and implantation bleeding. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If you miss your periods, or if periods are abnormal, or if your usual periods do not start within 10 days of expected dates, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Urine pregnancy test kits usually start showing positive results after about 18-20 days post-conception (roughly corresponding to about 1 week after your missed/altered periods) and you can get false negative results with urine pregnancy tests done very early in pregnancy, as the kits are calibrated ones, so unless the hormone levels in urine reach a certain level, they do not show positive results. The test should always be done on early morning first urine sample to get accurate results (pregnancy hormone HCG is believed to be in highest concentration in this sample, and you should avoid lot of fluid intake and caffeinated beverages in the night before taking the test). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet.
