Hi my girlfriend is approx 2 weeks late and she is normally quite reqular. She took a preg test about a week ago and it came back negative. Could this be too early too tell? She is going to take another test in a couple of days. Could stoping her pill just of messed up her cycle or is there a good chance she is pregnant.
The right time to take a pregnancy test is around a week after you've missed a period. The results from such a test are relevant. Your girlfriend can take another test if she wants. If the result is the same (negative), your girlfriend is probably not pregnant. Missing a period is probably due coming off "the pillâ ; lack of menstruation is an expected and temporary side effect of having suppressed ovulation using hormones. It may take some time for her period to normalize. Usually it takes 2-3 months before ovulation spontaneously re-establishes itself; it can take up to 2 years in the longest cases.
