My husband and i are trying to conceive, we had intercourse the last week in april, i usually get my period the first week of every month. I have not gotten my period yet this month now, but i have taken numerous pregnancy tests and they all say negative! I'm confused, is it too early yet?

  • The last week of April is the wrong time to TTC, if you're expecting your period the first week of May. The time when you are fertile is 2 weeks before the day you expect your period, so you should have had sex in the middle of April.

    However, regarding the pregnancy test, once your period is more than a week late, the test should be positive if the missed period is due to pregnancy.

    Sorry I can't be more helpful: I reall don't know if I think you're pregnant or not. Hope you figure it out and good luck with the baby plans!

  • Anon, what judimary is talking about is the average. Do you know exactly when you ovulate? Some women ovulate sporadically, so they might be able to conceive at any time during a cycle, whereas other women will ovulate right at two weeks. When you ovulate and when you have sex can also be a week apart and still conceive. When you conceive and when you implant can be a few weeks apart. In your case, you could have a delayed cycle and negative tests if your body hasn't built up enough hormone because you implanted later than you're thinking you did, or you could have a delayed cycle because you're very hopeful that you might have conceived, or you could have a delayed cycle because of something not pregnancy related.

  • go to the doc. That is the best solution. No one here can tell you and all we can do is guess. You know your body but a missed period could be anything not pregnancy related
