Am I Pregnant or Not?

If you are reading this article, you are probably facing the well-known dilemma: "Am I pregnant or not?“

Are you experiencing early pregnancy symptoms like nausea, tender breasts, minor cramps, or fatigue but when you took a pregnancy test, the result was negative?

Below, I will give a few explanations for what might be happening.

Pregnancy Test Checklist

  • Did you use the first urine in the morning? It has the highest hCG levels. If you didn't do the test first thing in the morning, your result may be inaccurate.
  • Did the test go properly? Did you see the control line or another indicator showing that the test worked as it should have? Read the instructions again to make sure it worked properly.
  • Did you try another type of test? Different brands of pregnancy tests all have different levels of sensitivity for hCG levels. You may want to try another brand to check your results.
  • Did you wait until at least 14 days after conception/ovulation? Before that the hCG levels are too low to be detected with a home test.

When the Test Is Negative but You Still Have Pregnancy Symptoms
When the Test Is Negative but You Still Have Pregnancy Symptoms

False Negative? Wait a Litle Longer!

The sensitivity of each pregnancy test is variable, but the soonest the most sensitive test can detect a pregnancy is at least 12 days after conception. Conception happens around the time a woman ovulates and, in a typical 28 day cycle, ovulation happens on or around day 14. This means that if you have a 28 day cycle, the earliest time you can take a test and get an accurate result is four weeks after the first day of your last period.

Long and Irregular Cycles

Many women have long or irregular cycles. If you have not been carefully tracking your ovulation cycles, or if you can't predict it, it is hard to say when the earliest possible time is for an accurate result is. For women with long or irregular cycles, or if you don't know exactly what your cycle is, it is best to wait for the day the next cycle is supposed to begin (the day you expect to get your next period) to take the home test.

Wait a Week

It's hard to play the waiting game, but try to wait for a week to see if your period starts. If not, take a new test.

Other Reasons for False Pregnancy Symptoms

The symptoms that are often associated with pregnancy can be caused by other conditions.

Ovulation and Premenstrual Symptoms

Some women get distinctive symptoms a few days before and during ovulation or few days before a period. Pregnancy symptoms (nausea, cramps, bloating, tender breasts, etc.) are often similar to the symptoms for ovulation and menstruation.

Ovarian Cysts

Fluid-filled cysts can form on the ovaries and cause symptoms, for example the need to urinate more frequently, a feeling of fullness in the abdomen, tender breasts, nausea, and vomiting. Ovarian cysts can be diagnosed by your OB/GYN with an ultrasound.

The Flu or Other Illnesses

Feelings of nausea or exhaustion can be caused by the common cold, flu, or other illnesses. You should talk to your healthcare provider if these symptoms linger for weeks.

Hormonal Contraception/Birth Control

The pill and other hormonal birth control methods commonly cause nausea, dizziness, breast tenderness, and mood changes. Try changing brands or methods if these side effects are troubling you.

Stress and Anxiety

Nausea is a common symptom of stress or anxiety. Anxiety can cause stomach aches, cramping, and even vomiting. If you have these symptoms accompanied with anxiety, you might consider seeking professional help for relief of stress or anxiety.

Other Unknown Factors

If your symptoms are not explained by pregnancy and endure for weeks, you should see your doctor. You might need a blood test to test for abnormal thyroid functions or low hemoglobin count.

It's so hard to wait, but doctors recommend that you wait until the first day of your missed period before taking a home pregnancy test.

      My period was supposed to come the 15th of September (I have a period and ovulation tracker app) and it didn't. My boyfriend and I had sex on both my ovulation days of the 30th and 31st of August. I have been feeling nauseous with no vomit, fatigue, headaches. I am now experiencing cramping with pinkish red discharge only when I wipe and still no period is present and I took a pregnancy test which came back negative. Could I be pregnant? What's the delay on my period??????

      My first day of my last period was August 25. It was normal 5 days long. My husband and I had sex on Sept 2 while on vacation. Last week Sept 10 till now I've been experiencing nausea, headaches, fatigue, dizziness, and just the past few days cramping. I ate pizza on Thursday for lunch pizza being my favorite food in the world, it made me nauseous. Also I have been super emotional this past week. Just about anything can make me cry. Watching glee and I started crying. I took a pregnancy test and it was negative. Could I still be pregnant??? Please help.

      Hey, so my last night period was 8/5/17 - 8/11/17 according to the app I use to lightweight let me know when I'm ovulating it's day the 19th was my day of ovulation. So I know sperm can live in the vagina for 5 days , so me & my boyfriend went hardcore those days. It's now September 4th, my nipples are so sore, I get so hungry, I feel so so tired, back pain, urinating more often, and other symptoms. But however my home pregnancy tests are negative so I'm just over all confused & desperate to know if I'm pregnant or what should I do

      I was ovulating 2 days before I had sex. I missed my period and have all the symptoms of pregnancy. The first test I took had a faint blue line. The other ones were negative. I plan on scheduling a blood test because of the negative tests. I've used my first mornings pee also. Then I read you can pee on the stick to much or less. Opinions?!

Also, i have been hungry all of the time i feel like i am feeding for two. I have really bad mood swings. But i took two pregnancy tests this morning and they both came out negative. But also i am going through a yeast infection could that have messed with the results of the tests? Or did i just take it too early?

      Hi I had my last period around 7/25/17 and nearing the end of my period when my period is very light I had sex and we are unsure if he pulled out in time. A few weeks ago I had a very light brownish spotting but I did not think much of it. My expected next period should of been August 22nd and I am now 6 days late. I took three pregnancy tests that have all come back negative. My boobs just became super sore 2 days ago and today I am feeling a little nausea after eating/during. I also have been experiencing a little light cramping and some lower back pain here and there. I know being tired is another symptom but I am always tired regardless. Should I wait another few days to take another pregnancy test or wait to see if my period comes? In the past my period was very irregular but recently it has been on time every month thats why i'm kind of freaking out. I just feel very off the past few weeks!

      hello! I had my last period last 07/13-07/18. i had my pap at 07/21 and was diagnosed by BV. I was prescribed for metronidazole and neopenotran forte to take for 7 days. Based on the ovulation calendar, my ovulation day was 07/30, so when I was done with my meds, my boyfriend and I had s*x during my fertile days. I'm TTC so we did not use any protection. My AF has not yet showing up until now. I am now 15 days delayed. Tried HPT when I was 5 days delayed and another one yesterday, both were BFN. When I was supposed to have my AF, it is just a heavy clear discharged and after that cramps with my lower abdomen. And now, my b**bs were sore. I am always sleepy and hungry everytime. I don't know if my delayed period is just a side effect of the antibiotic that I's take. Planning for another HPT by the end of this month or next week. Please advise.

      Hiya, my last period was 4th August 2017 had sex day 11, 13 and 14 of my cycle. For about 10 days I've had nausea, mild cramping, bloating and constipation, headaches. My "period" cane day 21 of my cycle, it's slightly lighter than usual and no painful cramping like usual and very dark. Do I take a test after this bleeding has stopped or just assume it's my period come early? (I usually have a 28 to 31 day cycle never less than 28) I'd appreciate your advice

      Hi everyone,

      I'm new to all this... so um first of all I am type 1 diabetic and have been for about six years. I have been pregnant before but unfortunately lost the baby during early weeks. So I know the symptoms well enough to distinguish PMS from diabetes and pregnancy...

      Anyway. I was on the implant for six years but it was awful as I got my period every other week so I switched to microgonyn a couple months ago and noticed my period and mood settle more.

      However, recently I skipped a pill as I ran out and this past week or so I was experiencing (at first) signs similar to PMS, but then my period never came and it usually does roughly mid month (15-18th ish). Not only that but the last few days my pelvic area and lower back have been so sore that it hurts to walk and I've been feeling more hungry and fatigued and need to pee all the time, plus my boobs look swollen and feel sore to touch. I've been cramping a lot especially the left side and feel really nauseas. It feels a lot like when I was pregnant before but I took a home pregnancy test day before yesterday afternoon and it was negative...

      I know my body and something definitely feels different, call it intuition or whatever. What do I do? Have I tested too early? I'm not sure what to do or how long to wait before testing again. And Tbh I feel anxious and impatient because now the risks are greater than before.

      Please someone share some advice, thank you x

      I got my regular period in July on the 7th like I always do. On the 21st of July I was bleeding again but with no pms symptoms. August 7th has came and went and I'm now 14 days late. My boobs have grown significantly and they hurt really really bad, I'm hungry all the time but I'm craving things I normally don't eat, I'm craving healthier foods and water I feel so dehydrated no matter how much water I drink, I have slight cramping but not like period cramping at all, I'm bloated, so tired I can't keep my eyes open and I'm crying at the smallest things which isn't like me I'm normally pretty emotionless. I took a test but it was negative... so now I'm not sure if I should wait a few more weeks or go to my dr...any suggestions? Does this sound like pregnancy?

      Hello!

      I took an early pregnancy test this morning and it was negative (3 days before missed period) I have had all the signs of being pregnant except nausea, but I have had diarrhea. We had sex the day before ovulation (according to my calendar app). During that next week, I had slight white discharge and we had sex a week after ovulation and I had light spotting. I feel like I am making my self-crazy, and I know I just need to wait to see if I miss my period. At this point I don't want it to be a medical condition if I am not pregnant because I have been so off the past 2 weeks.

      Hey Harpa, it's me again just giving an update. I saw my OB all tests came back negative she sent me for ultrasounds. Both Dr and sonographer said i could be to early to see anything related to pregnancy but found a small cyst on my ovary. I go back for another US in 2 months to check the cyst and if there's a pregnacy. And of course to come straight back if bleeding and severe cramps start.

      Hi, I'm back again. Thanks for the reply back then.

      So far I didn't experience any symptoms such as nausea etc too.

      The bloated feeling was because of my liver acting up, but it's almost recovered now.

      Then, around one week ago I had brown/dark red colored vaginal discharge, mostly brown. And until now I still have it. But it's often seen after I masturbated.

      Sometimes I had slight cramp too after masturbation. Is it normal? I believe it's the old blood that from last period because my period was weird (Like I explained back then, only thick blood or clots alike appear) and there must be lots of blood left inside.

      If my period is on time, it would be around 10 days or more from now.

      Is it just a sign I'm getting my period sooner or it's just old blood from last period?

I'm crampy, slightly bloated, itchy nipples (which I had with my first pregnancy) and getting frequent headaches. I took a urine test and there was a faint line verified by two other people. But I didn't have any hcg in my blood. Do you think it was a faulty urine test? Or could I still be pregnant?

      Hi! I got my period July 1st-3rd and have not yet gotten mine this month. My period is usually pretty regular coming the end/beginning of each month. The last time I had sex was July 11th. Ever since mid July I've had on and off cramps/stomach pain. I have also been bloated and feel the need to pee & poop a lot. I looked up early pregnancy symptoms and have majority of them. My breasts are sensitive and I've gotten a head occasionally too. This morning I took a pregnancy test and it came back negative. I'm wondering what may be wrong if it's not pregnancy and also if I maybe tried to test too early? Thanks.

      I haven't had a period since June's 24th. I feel nauseous all day. Sometimes I get a burning feeling in my stomach. I've also had crazy vivid dreams-weirdly consistent and different from normal to the point I felt it necessary to bring up. I've taken six different tests over the last week. I guess my question is, if I got off birth control in May, is it normal to have a perfectly normal cycle the first month and not have a period at all the next?

      Hello Harpa osk

      Thank you so much for your feed back. Just a little update on my situation like in the pervious message. I typically get my periods on the 5th of every month. I had what i suspect an implantation bleeding in july or possibly some unexplained bleeding. However i have not recieved my actual period for this month of august i am now 1 day late. I am going to wait till august 9th to take a test like you suggested. I am experiencing some tender cervix pain and aches in my lower abdomen. A bit worried something doesn't seem right. And wondering if i test negative again what else could possible be going on that I'm experiencing this...

      Hi Tracy

      Its unlikely but possible. If the bleeding is heavy, then I would say no there is something else bothering you, especially since your symptoms came on sooner than it should depending on the period in July. If the bleeding is very light, its a very small chance it could be implantation bleeding, then you should definitely get accurate test in 2-4 days.

      Good luck with everything

      Hi H

      If your period was on the 25 of July, you still haven't had ovulation yet, so you cant be pregnant. If you are talking about the 25th of June, it might be stress, some gastro virus or simply too early testing.

      Hi Maria

      It sounds a little bit as a premenstrual pain, connected to your left ovaries. Try waiting a few days, see if your period comes, if not take a home pregnancy test. If the pain increases, gets unusually bad, you should contact your hospital.

      Hi Shania

      It's unlikely that the blood test shows a false negative, after all that time you should test positive. Your symptoms sound a bit like you might be a little constipated, try to drink more water, eat food that has lot of fiber and make regular bowel movements. If you don't find a reason for these symptoms and your periods don't come then two weeks, you could try another test since you are trying, and the ovulation could come when ever when you are irregular.

      I have irregular periods but I have never missed cycles. My last periods was on 1st of june. we started intercourse since 9th July with the plan of conceiving. Today is 6th August and still no periods. I did several HPT s and a blood test on 31st july but all came negative.

      I'm bloated and really uncomfortable and heavy feeling in the tummy. Further bitter taste in mouth, lower abdominal and pelvic area pain. That pain started in left side first but now pain is more often on right side.

      I am just confused. Can HPT and blood test give false negative?

      Hi Jamie

      If the faint line was really there and not a shadow, if you saw the color of the test, I would assume that you had an early miscarriage. You should take another test tho to make sure, in a few days. Be sure to contact your nearest hospital if you start having pain in the lower corner of your abdomen left or right, with or without bleeding because of the risk of another tubal.

      I hope it all goes well

      Hi H.R

      These symptoms are coming too early to be pregnancy symptoms, you should have ovulated around 1-2. of August, so around the 5th you should barely have any pregnancy hormones in your system if you conceived. The earlyest time to take a test would be the 15th of August, but it wouldnt to be sure of a true negative you would have to wait until around the 23.

      Hi Tatyto1

      The most logical explanation is that this cycle was irregular, and that your period is started. In that case the symptoms would be caused by that hormonal irregularity, and it is in fact very common for the PMS to exaggerate when we get older.

      If your period didn't continue, if it was only that one day, you should take a test.

      Hi Lola2017

      I'm sorry but this is too early for implantation bleeding. To be sure of a negative test assuming you had a normal cycle despite the bleeding would be is around the 9-12 of August. The last few days could be too soon with a low end test, try again around the 9nth to be sure.

      Hi Teri

      It's very unlikely that you are pregnant, both a cyst and ovulation would produce some pregnancy like symptoms. So if you are trying, now is a good time. If in two weeks you don't have your period, it was a cyst and that can also cause irregular bleeding.

      Hi.. I have been experiencing headaches,neckaches,nausea,bloating and alot of pressure near my pubic bone. Almost the same feeling you'd have far in pregnancy when it feels like your water is going to break or "the baby is trying to stick its arm out ur va jay jay" lol.. I'm also having frequent urination. My cycles are very regular 29 days and have it 4 days.. my last normal period started 6/29 and this month it came a day late. It started mid afternoon and was just pink brown spotting on day one, day two was a medium flow and spotting and that was all she wrote.. I have four children and have had 2 mc's and an ectopic a few months after i had a tubal ligation. That was 7 years ago. I had emergency surgery and they removed the tube but left the other and said its possible for it to happen again. I took 3 pg tests one was very faint positive then the next two were negative. I have no idea whats going on and i'm getting a little worried. Any suggestions would be great. I cant get in till late next week to see my OB.

      Sorry forgot to mention that i am also a bit bloated and suffer from some gas in my stomache with some nervous noise at times and discomfort in there occurs.

      My last three periods were 26/5, 21/6 and 18/7. Now on the 5th of august i have been feeling nauseaus for the past three days or so almost all around the day. Mild stomache pain. Some headaches every now and then. Some back and knee pain. Loss of energy. Stronger smell sensitivity like i started to smell my sweat which never happened before and when i smell something strong i feel some discomfort or more nauseaus. Weird taste in my mouth "i brush my teeth" sleepy. Some how always sad, angry and get mad easier than usual or no patience u can say that my husband thought i was pmsing. My last period was normal for 4/5 days normal bleeding but the pain was pretty harsh i was in so much pain and had to take several painkillers it was killing me but this is something that happens to me some cycles not always and since i was a virgin but first time to be thag painful after i got married by the end of last april. I sometimes experience some mild short lived pain in my vagina. I wanna know if it is possible to be pregnant and if yes when can i take a pregnancy test. P.s my husband and i are pretty cautious trying to wait for a while before having babies so we take some measurments "but i don't take contraceptive pills" sorry for the long comment and would really appreciate it if i may get an answer.

      Thanks kn advance.

I am peeing frequently, having a lower back cramp, feel a little bit like vomiting, tired and a little bit of heavy breast. Should I be pregnant? I did a urine pregnancy test on the 03rd of August 2017 and it was negative.

      Hello everyone,

      I am trying to seek some advice. Because it seems i have myself in a bit of a confused state. Here is my story if anyone can please take the time to read and let me know your opinion.

      I typically get my actual on the 5th day of every month. In july i recieved my period on time. However later on in july on the 22nd i started getting some spotting. Which was on and off. I had a flow for 2 days july 25th and 26th and then it stopped. Here i am coming up to august 5th which i should be getting my actual period. I have been getting what i think are pregnancy symptoms. The heart burn nausea fatigue BUT have taken pregnancy tests that i bought at the dollar store and have tested negative each time. Am i testing to early? Could this just be a false alarm and I'm stressed? Using the wrong tests? Idk what else to do....

      Hi Rachel

      As you might know, with PCOS the hormones can be unbalanced. Its normal to have no period for months. If you are trying to get pregnant an OB/GYN could help with medication. If you are not trying, then you just have to wait for your period. If you are feeling this bad it might also be a good idea to get medication to regulate your hormones.

      Thank you for the reply,i did the test in the morning and the results were negative again.

      I had an appointment with my doctor today, she says it's because of hormonal dis-balance and she has also given me two tablets and a syrup.

      She says the bleeding will stop in three days with the medicines but she also said that i should get the tests done for ovary cysts.

      Please suggest me if i should get the tests done or will it be fine to take medicines only.

      Hi Tammy

      You are possibly in some hormonal imballance after changing birth control. If you kept taking the pill, you should get your period 3-4 weeks after the first pill. If nothing happens after 5 weeks you might want to take a pregnancy test, but I think its highly unlikely to get pregnant the day after taking the implant out.

      Hi Rara, I don't think you are pregnant, more likely stress. The sore nipples is normal during your period.

      Just remember, if you don't want to get pregnant, you should not be having unprotected sex, you can get pregnant even if he doesnt come inside.

      Hi, I had my period on 17-23 July (with presence of small clots), and my boyfriend and I had sex on the 22 and 25 July. We used condoms, and both times he pulled out before he came.

      Recently I have been experiencing weird symptoms such as headaches, fatigue, and nauseousness. On 28-30 I had a burning sensation when I peed, but had bright red blood on 27 and 30 when I wiped after peeing. The blood never flowed.

      Is it possible that it was implantation bleeding? I have not taken a test yet as my period has just ended and I am having dry/creamy CM. Please advise!! Could I be pregnant or just overthinking?

      Hi, I had unprotected sex with my partner on the 21st July, and I was near on my period at that time (Around 24th or late). He didn't came inside me, but we were not sure if he has pre-cum or not at that time. From 21st till 24th July I also had extreme stress too.

      Around the 23rd, I had vaginal discharge with brown/dark red colored (Just like usual blood color), and I saw there was already blood inside but it's not flowing out yet.

      By 26th, the blood flowed out but it's pretty thick and look likes clots to me, I also had severe cramps around that time. Weird that it's just not like my usual period to be, it's hard to flow out.

      Then by 28th, it's gone back to there was blood inside but it's not flowing out. So far until today it seems my period ended.

      Is this showing I'm pregnant or it's because of my extreme stress I had for 3 days or more? I had sore breast on 23rd but it was gone by the next day. So far I feel bloated since during my period and till now. There's no any other symptoms aside those.

      Hi Cgoodine

      Its hard to say whats going on, could be just an irregular spell but could also be implantation spotting.

      You should have an accurate home pregnancy test around 6th of August, its possible to get a possitive few days earlier, but after the 6th you should be sure of the result.

      Good luck with everything :)

      Hi Anonymous

      You need to take the pregnancy test when there are at least two weeks since having unprotected sex. If its negative 2-3 weeks after unprotected sex you are most likely not pregnant.

      Black period blood is normal, its old blood coming down so its common when the bleeding is slow or finished.

      I would assume your symptoms are caused by something else, perhaps anxiety, stress and might be PMS, symptoms you get before your period.
