okay ladies so it's December 1st and my last menstrual cycle started October 28th and was very light and only lasted two days. I completely skipped my cycle for November. I took a home pregnancy test on November 27th and it came back negative. Is there a possibility that I may be pregnant? Could really use some answers on this.

Hi,

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.

If there is a history of any unprotected intercourse, then chances of pregnancy are there.

If you are apprehensive regarding the status of your pregnancy you can get it checked. Most home pregnancy tests that check urine beta-HCG are sensitive to 20-25 mIU/ml of HCG. The test can be positive anywhere from about 2-3 days prior to a missed menses to 4-5 days after, but usually it should be done 7-10 days past your missed period.

Otherwise you can get a serum HCG also done which is more specific than urine pregnancy test.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
