can i miss my period because of dehydration?


My last period was on 23 February. I took a home pregnancy test when they were three days late and the result was positive for pregnancy. I have been feeling dizzy lately, having stomach cramps, headaches. Yesterday I drank a lot of water and now all these signs are gone. Could it be that I missed my period because of dehydration and how reliable are the home pregnancy tests?

A home-pregnancy-test will never show a positive if you are not pregnant. If you do get a period, it means that you wére pregnant and miscarried. You áre preggies. Congratulations!

Dehydration will not cause you to miss your periods or have a positive pregnancy test. If the Home test said you are pregnant, then you are. You will need to go to your doc for blood tests to confirm etc
