Question

11 Feb 2004

When
How soon before my next period can I do a pregnancy test. A clear heavy discharge, does that mean I am ovalating. If I worked it out my ovalation should have happend last week, because my next period is due the 19 February and I only have a 28 day cycle. My abdomen is feeling like there is a slight pressure on. Could it be that I am pregnant

IF you are going to do a home pregnancy test, wait and see if your period comes on time. If not, you can do it 4-5 days after the 19th. The blood pregnancy test would be positive on the 19th. It is usually best to wiat and see whether your period comes or not, else you wll be wasting quite a lot of money on tests.
