Should I test again? Help!

Hello, I had a natural miscarriage July 8, 2010 at 7 weeks pregnant doctor confirmed, I got my period August 24, 2010 normal period cycle, well September 24th came along & I didn't have any sign of my period & was having a few weird symptoms like nausea, fatigue, light cramping, constipation & sensitivity to smell, so I bought a dollar store pregnancy test & tested that same day but it came out negative, it's September 26th & my period still hasn't came done, I do have light cramping but not my usual AF cramps with the backache. Could the test have been wrong and I am pregnant or could it be my hormones still crazy from my miscarriage?. Should I wait a week & test again but with a name brand pregnancy test?

  • Sure what could it hurt to test again. I would test now and then wait a week and try again. Its not like you don't have urine to spare.

  • I would test again, making sure to use first of the morning urine and a test that says "early". It can be a cheap one, but it needs to say early.

  • Call your ob because they might need to do blood work and a u/s. I'm sorry about your loss ((hugs)) I had miscarriages that ended around 7wks before too.
