Couldn't find what you looking for?



I just had a regular cycle a little over a week ago. I've been experiencing strong nausea, tender breasts and fatigue. Before my period I took a test and it was negative. So should I take another one even though I just had my period and when I last had sex it was a month ago? Please help, I hate to go pay so much money going to the doctor office.


Hi S,

When you say regular cycle do you mean a "normal" period.  Normal as in like all your others?

If so, it is unlikely that you are pregnant.  There can be bleeding if you are pregnant however.

How long ago did you test?  If it was at least 2, preferably 3, weeks after you had sex then the results should be accurate.  They do not work with all women however.

Your symptoms themselves are not specific to pregnancy.

You can retest.  Be sure to use your first morning - wakeup - urine for best results.

I don't think you're pregnant from your description.

Good luck.
