Period late, could i pregnant?


My period is 16 days late. It is always regular. I have been trying to get pregnant for like 4 months now. Now, sometimes i have lower backpain and Somedays i frequently urinate during the morning. And last two days morning urine smelt kinda funny. I took a home pregnancy test two days back (1st thing in the morning) and sadly it was negative. Can i still be pregnant? How long should i wait before taking another test?

Not likely

If you are 16 days late and it still says negative, you probably aren't. They are supposed to be 99% accurate. Still, you could go to the doctor and a blood test would tell you 100%.

You are probably under some stress since you are trying to get pregnant. Being pregnant doesn't make your urine smell any different (at least not in my experience or that I've heard of). The kind of cramping I got in the first few weeks of pregnancy was not lower back, but the uterus. It felt like I was going to get my period but it was just the uterus stretching and preparing.

4 months is still early so don't worry that you haven't seen results yet. It can happen right away or take a long time. I know someone who got pregnant right away for the first, and then the second took 4 years to conceive (naturally). It's different for everyone. Just keep trying and as hard as it is, try not to think about it. It happens when you least expect it. :)
