Hello doctor,

I have missed periods and a negative pregnancy test. Should I wait for another test? I tested three days back. The last LMP date was exactly a month back. This is related to my wife.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Since your urine pregnancy test is negative, there is nothing to worry about. The delay could be because of hormonal changes. However, if you do not get periods within a week or so, then get yourself checked by a gynecologist and get a pelvic scan done to rule out the exact cause. Do get back to me with reports so that I can guide you further. Take care.

Thank you doctor,

What are the chances of pregnancy in such cases? Are they successful or not? Whether the test will be positive or not after a few days wait?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

If there is delayed ovulation and implementation, then the results will be positive after a week or so. However, if you have a doubt then get a blood test for pregnancy done to ensure. Do get back to me with reports so that I can guide you further. Take care.
