Doctor: Hi.Thank you for writing to us.Whenever in doubt about the possibility of a pregnancy, just take the home pregnan cy test. It is around 99 percent reliable when the test is done properly. The ideal time to test is early morning with your first urine sample and on the day that your next periods are due or a day later.You did the right thing in January by taking the test. You had pregnancy like symptoms, but the test came out to be negative. So most likely you were not pregnant then.Now that you are having a lighter period in February, there is a possibility you could be pregnant this month. Just take the test and relieve yourself of the anxieties and stress. If you are pregnant, then an early ultrasound examination will be very useful in confirming the age of the baby so don’t take unnecessary stress about which month you may have conceived.Hope this helps.
