Is it possible I could still be pregnant?

User Profile
Hi- I usually ovulate on on the 6th or 7th of the month and I can usually feel when I ovulate. About one week after I ovulated, when wiping I noticed a little bit of blood on the toilet paper. I am thinking this could have been Implantation Bleeding. It was very faint and I never had any after that. I was expected to get my period approx 5-7 days later. I have taken a couple of hpt's and they have been negative. I am now 14-15 days late for my period. I have not tested for a week. When I was supposed to have my period I was crampy and my breast were and are still very swollen. I had a creamy discharge at the time as well. Is it possible I could still be pregnant? Should I just wait for my next period to see if I miss? I can't stand to see another neg test if I'm not. How long after implantation bleeding can I test positive?

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum.
Urine pregnancy tests show positive results approximately after 20 days post conception. But sometimes they can keep showing false negative results due to less concentration of pregnancy hormone (HCG) in urine. Blood HCG levels are accurate and confirmatory, they can detect pregnancy accurately as early as 11 days post conception.
Your symptoms are suggestive of pregnancy. Visit your gynecologist/obstetrician at the earliest for examination and request or a blood beta HCG level test along with repeat test after 3 days to look for rising titers to confirm pregnancy and smooth continuation of pregnancy.
Take care.
