Can i be pregnant??

I am a week late with my period. My breasts feel swolen and very sore. Did a pregnancy test yesterday but it was negative. Do you think i can be pregnant? Is it still to early to test? When will be the right time to test again? Only been off the pill for 5 months now. Please advise?

The pregnancy test should be positive by now if you were pregnant. See your doctor to determine why your period is late.

Hello hopeful

Maybe you should do a blood test! You could be but then again you might not be. I don't want to dissapoint you but same thing happenend to me and i was convinced i was pregnant and then my period arrived! I was devastated. Then again my sister was over 8 weeks pregnant before a HPT showed positive so either way the best way to know is to do a blood test
Good luck
