**TTC** So I had my period April 1st lasted 4-5 days. We utilized all my Fertile days and now its april 27th. I've had plenty of days where I have mild cramping. Sometimes it's on both sides and sometimes just one. I've had no spotting, but I've found that I'm extreamly emotional and I have white creamy discharge that started 3-4 days after ovulation ended. I Took a test today that was the 5 days sooner type and it was negative..I'm planning on testing May 2nd as well.
Welcome to ehealthforum.
If you had been sexually active around ovulation time, chances of pregnancy are possible. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. Urine pregnancy test kits usually start showing positive results after about 20 days post-conception (roughly corresponding to about 1 week after your missed/altered periods). 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). The urine pregnancy tests done very early in pregnancy can show you false negative results as the kits are calibrated ones, so unless the hormone levels in urine reach a certain level, they do not show positive results. If periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you have abnormal periods, or if you develop new symptoms suggestive of pregnancy, 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).
