QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
I took a pregnancy test today. I am on day 27 of a usual 29 day cycle. The test was negative. A few hours before taking the test a ate a pretty big lunch and took a prenatal vitamin. This was my first trip to the bathroom afterwards.

Would or could this affect the outcome of the test. I have been pregnant a few times before, and I at times REALLY feel pregnant. I would think I am most likely not, but just wanted to know if eating and vitamins could have an affect on the outcome of pregnancy tests?

QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
I am feeling very frustrated and disappointed right now. I have been trying to conceive for about 4 months. I have a 35-day, regular cycle. I was due to start this past Sunday, July 13th. I had cramps and low back pain like normal, but no period. It is Thursday, July 17th and I still have no period. I tested on Monday, July 14th and it was negative (morning urine). I also tested this morning (Thursday) and it was negative.

QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
Hello! I was without my birth control pills for two weeks due to confusion with my doctor's office and pharmacy. One week of this was my period. I took one pill after receiving them and a few hours later, my husband and I had sex. We have had sex several times since then. This was a little over one week ago, and I have started a very light period for 3 days even though I have been taking my birth control pills. Now I have a brownish color. What could this be?
