Hi,
Hopeing someone can shed some light on this for me.
I've lost my appetite, for anything other than salad, I can't stand the taste of alcohol, and Im sooooo tired.
So, I did what anyone who has been pregnant before would do.....I peed on a stick  biggrin.gif
Negative.
I finish my period 5 days ago??? Now...is it possible I'm pregnant, but just too early to show ( on HPT)????
I should say, with our first I conceived on the pill ( during antibiotics) and still got my period for the first 2 months.
We haven't been TTC, but......not to say we would not be happy!
So, after all that......what do you, oh learned ladies ( and men) of EB think? original.gif

If you've had sex in the last five days then yes, you could be pregnant. It all depends on your cycle and whether you may have ovulated earlier than you normally would.

if it's only been 5 days since your last period then no not from that cycle but that doesn't mean you aren't from a pervious cycle, it might be an idea to go to the doctors and get some blood tests coz it would be showing up by now if it was from a pervious cycle, good luck

Op are you on the pill at the moment?

Pill periods are not real periods.

They are simply break through bleeds.

Go to the gp anyway.

Even if your not pregnant you should investigate your lack of appetite and tiredness.

You might be low in b12 or iron.

Can a pee stick be negative that far into a period? i.e. if she's not pregnant from this cycle but the last one? Not knowledgeable but I'd have thought by that point it would be positive?

Its possible for a test to show negative from a previous cycle. Its also very possible to have what looks like periods right through pregnancy.

I know someone who found a test in her cupboard and decided to test just for fun. She was so far pregnant that she was showing and it was negative.

And I had bleeding through both my pregnancies.

Sounds more like you're coming down with some sort of virus to me... 5 days after a normal period with a negative HPT -- I'd be extremely surprised if you were pregnant. original.gif

Thanks for the replies!!!

I'll just see how I go over the next few days......if I'm still felling  yyawn.gif  I'll do another test.

Oh and to answer a couple of PP...no, not on the pill anymore.
I also had a whole range of blood tests the other week (3wks ago) and I'm not deficient in anything. ( was testing for auto-immune conditions as well as iron, B,D and all the other) genetic thing.

Cheers ( if I get a positive...I'll let you know  biggrin.gif

My guess would be not pregnant. It would show up on a test from the last cycle and too early for this one. Unless of course the cycle is all out of whack from the pill etc etc.
I have found over the years of my poas obsession that they are pretty reliable. I have only ever had a few evaporation lines but otherwise they are very accurate.
If there's no line - it's been not pregnant.
Maybe it's ovulation time
