Could i be pregnant? I went for AI on the 17th and 18th. Experienced what seemed like implantation on the 26th (day 10) - also had strange feeling in womb... like when you have a papsmear. My period is due today but still nothing. I usually experience a bit of old blood coming down a day or two before the actual bleeding starts, and still nothing. I did a hpt yesterday and there were 2 lines but not in the required 5 mins time - more like 15 mins i think. Because i did not see 2 lines immediately i threw the test in my bedroom bin and maybe about 15 - 20 mins later realized i never gave it time to develop and low and behold there were 2 lines. Did another test this and there were 2 lines but not in the required 5 mins time. Could i be pregnant? i have done tests before and never ever had even a faint second line? Pls help!!!

Dear Patsy

It appears that in all probability that you have conceived. I would suggest a very sensitive Beta-HCG quantitative blood test to definitely confirm. Good luck and best wishes!!
