  • Pregnancy and PMS symptoms are remarkably alike. If you had real pregnancy symptoms you would have tested positive (youi can't have symptoms before the egg implants and when the egg implants you start to make the hormone that tests look for). Sounds like you just had a shorter period than usual ...

  • If you had sex, you could be pregnant. Three days late could be due to stress- physical or emotional. Give it another couple days and test again.

  • If you've had sex, of course it is possible to be pregnant. :-)

    Periods really shouldn't be tracked by a calendar; illness and stress can make them late or early and that makes the calendar an untrustworthy tracking method.

    Pick up a copy of "Taking Charge of Your Fertility" by Toni Wechsler. It's a user's manual for the female reproductive system and should be read by EVERY woman. You'll learn to chart, using a spreadsheet rather than a calendar, and you'll always know when your period's coming and you'll know if you're pregnant too.

  • Yes. It is possible. Give it a few more days and test again. Better yet follow up with your DOCTOR.

  • Did you have sex in the last month? If yes, then it's possible. If no, then it's not likely.

  • Penis + Vagina = Baby (mayb)
    Menstrual Cycle + Stress = Late Period (maybe)

  • Relax and take things a day at a time...Easy for me to type it but its for your health and sanity!!! Let a few more days go by and retest...after 2 weeks go to the dr..
