I`m late 24 days...

My period is late 24 days and I think I might be expecting. Even though I tide my tubes 9 month ago ( with the clips). I did a home p test and it was negative but that was almost 3 weeks ago.
Could I still be pregnant????

  • yes, instead of wasting your money on a home pregnancy test...call the doctor tomorrow and make an appointment for a blood test to confirm if you're pregnant or not.

  • Its not likely but, yes, you could still be pregnant. There are very few 100% ways to prevent pregnancy & although steralization is pertty close to it, it too can fail - especially if performed during a c-section...

    If you took the HPT 3 weeks ago its time enough to do another one.

    You should also be aware that periods can be late or missing for a number of reasons (even in women that are usually regular) & for the most part doctors arent usually concerned as it all comes under the umbrella of 'normal'. Stress, your weight, alcohol consumption, medication etc can all alter the monthly cycle.

  • I am in a similar situation, only, my husband had a vasectomy. I called the dr for a blood test and was told that the HPT is very accurate. Iasked for a blood test and I was told the nurse will call me back. I think this is really weird, and I haven't had a period since Oct 13, but a pink spotting on the 10th of Dec. Good luck to you.
