Customer Question

I am on birth control. The first day of my last period was 9/7. I missed my period this month. Took a home pregnancy test on Sunday 10/8 (negative). Went to the Dr. on Tues and they did a urine test (negative). She said my cervix was BLUE which usually indicates pregnancy. Blood test came back negative. Could I be pregnant but it is too early? What are the other causes of a "blue cervix"?

HiCustomer thanks for using Just Answer for your question. What you are describing is what Drs call "Chadwicks sign", which is a change in the color of cervical tissue. Sounds like you are rougly 7 days late. Some sources state that Chadwicks sign is presumptive, and that a change in cervical tissue can indicate an impending period, or a period that is about to come. Since the blood tests have come back negative, I would wait a few weeks and call your doctor again if you are still late. If you have any other questions, please ask me. Otherwise please hit the "accept" button.Thanks, GloRN
