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.

      Hi Leeanna and congrats on the pregnancy. If the hospital and the pregnancy test are both positive, I would assume that you are pregnant. It is too early to diagnose a pregnancy on the 9th for a July cycle so I would guess that you got pregnant in May or June, and that you are 8-12 weeks along. So take care of yourself, eat small and frequent meals and get plenty of rest during the day. Good luck and enjoy your pregnancy :)

      I went to the hospital on Sunday the 9th of July I thought I had my period July 2-5 but after that me and my husband had sex and that Sunday morning on the 9th I felt dizzy and the doctors said the reason why I'm dizzy is because I'm pregnant I didn't no I was pregnant didn't no at all so today for a week now I've been tired and nausea and I lost 3 pounds and I took a home test and it said positive no other symptoms could I be pregnant I mean I have irregular periods so I might of conceived June or July but I didn't have a period in June I skip a month any advice I go see my obgyn on the 9th

      Next month. I hope I'm pregnant but I don't want it to be false tests

      Hi Siara

      It is quite unlikely that you are pregnant but with unregular cycle its always possible. You should wait for a few days and see if your period comes, if not you should get an accurate result on a pregnancy test during the weekend.

      Dear Gail

      If you conceived on the 26th it would have been a little late in your cycle, so I would give it until the 25th of July to be sure about a negative pregnancy test.

      Best wishes :)

      Hi Shandre

      Don't worry, it's normal to take some time to get pregnant after the pill. The nausea can also be a sign of stress or anxiety that is not helpful when trying to conceive :) Take care of your self, spend time outdoors and do fun things as a couple, that helps with all the good hormones !

      best wishes and luck to you

      Hi Leesa

      If you got pregnant on your June cycle, you should have a positive test by now, possibly with late ovulation but then you should have a positive test in a week from now. It is small chance of getting pregnant with tied tubes, but it is rather unlikely.

      Best wishes

      Hi Jessica

      Yes it's possible, women often feel a subtle change the weeks after conception but still you cant count on it. You should be able to get a possitive test about 14-20 days after conception.

      Best wishes and hopes for you

      Dear Prati

      It's not possible to feel effects of pregnancy that soon, only day after having sex. There is always a change of pregnancy when having unprotected sex even tho he does not ejaculate, but you will have to wait for two weeks at least before taking a test.

      Dear Aisha

      If your pregnancy test was negetive, I would assume that you have another problem going on. Might be a urinary infection or even cysts on your ovaries. Can you have yourself cheacked out by a doctor, and check your ovaries by ultrasound ?

      Best wishes

      I had unprotected sex while I was fertile. After conception I started to feel nauseous and dizzy for a few days with a light discharge. I never get discharge. It subsided for a few bays but now I am having cramping, these sudden sharp pains throughout my stomach. I am only mid way in my cycle and think its too early for a test. Could this be a positive pregnancy?

      So my period began last month around the 22nd-23rd and I was coming off/ending the 28th. This month I started the 22nd but it was very very light (i'm usually pretty heavy) and it only lasted for a few days. I've been stressed out all month thinking about possibly being pregnant because of a bad dream and now i'm wondering if I could be or not. I took a pregnancy test on the 23rd that was negative and again today on the 28th that was negative. What is happening?

      I have had morning sickness for about a month. Over the past two weeks it has started all the time, not just upon waking up. Even when trying to eat. Two or 3 bites and off to the bathroom I go. I am experiencing dizzy spells periodically as well. I've had the implanon for 4 years. With the new placement a yr ago. I've never had any issues with the device, nor periods. I've taken a pregnancy test and it was negative, yet have symptoms of pregnancy. What do you think?

My symptoms are breat tenderness, you can see my veins on my breast, they are a lot bigger, nipples change in color, I feel nauseous in the mornings, I'm always tired, My stomach is hard feeling, I've had small cramps and lightly spotting, I'm always hungry or craving something, my mood swings are terrible. I don't know what to do. I've asked multiple friends who have kids and they all say I sound like I'm pregnant. Am I or am I not? What should I do?

      HI, I started having sore breast about a week and a half ago. Going down stairs and laying on the sides they would hurt. I brushed it off. Then two days ago, I went to eat one of my favorite choose which are spicy and as soon as I put them in my mouth I had to gag and almost threw up. The next morning went for my usual coffee and pie and felt nauseous while eating it so stopped. The same thing happened when I tried to eat lunch. Later that night the only thing I wanted was fruit. Had a plum and cereal and felt fine. Fruit is the only thing that doesn't make me queasy. Period was due the 27th came yesterday the 20th. Tried eating a burger today and got sick again. My mirena has been out three months now. I think my hormones are going crazy. I took a test and it was negative. Anyone else have these issues after mirena.

      My last regular period was April 13th and lasted until April 17th a normal cycle. I slept with my boyfriend on April 27th my last day of ovulation. On June 3rd I thought I got my period which is an abnormal date for me, however it wasn't heavy and only lasted 3 days. I had spotting on and off the week after and then had some dark brown blood when I wiped after peeing. I have taken a number of home pregnancy tests that have come up positive and some have shown negative. The tests always have faint lines but even my friends can see the lines as well. I have been super nauseas these past 2 weeks and almost feels as if I have throw up stuck in my throat wanting to come out. Then this past Friday I noticed I had menstrual like cramps on and off but no period. That continued up until today where this afternoon I went to the bathroom and when I wiped I had some blood but not heavy and none in my urine. I'm wondering if something is wrong with my baby or if those home pregnancy tests were false positives. Can someone please help me?

      My last reg period started May 3rd. May 27th I thought my period came early. First 2 days seemed normal then I barely spotted for 2 more days. The day after the spotting stopped, I was nauseas...have been ever since thru out the day/night (not continuously though).Ive been having lots of symptoms. Nauseas,headaches,lower ab cramps (light cramps for the first few days, now no more cramps), waistbands touching my tummy make me feel queezy. Food makes me sick after about 5 minutes of eatting, while other times food Ive always hated tastes like the best thing Ive ever had. Im having alot of mucus, like having to change panties 3 or 4 times a day. Cant seem to get enough sex, turned on just by looking at hubby..lol tmi I know. My breast where alittle tender for 2 days and now fill fuller. Smells make me sick feeling. Having very odd dreams, extremely tired having to take nap everyday, peeing atleast 2 times more than normal, cried the other day watching a movie thats never made me cry before...and I mean I cried! Tears were streaming fast lol. My face seems like it lost the tan, looking pale although Im tan everywhere else.did I mention that weve always had a great,fun,exciting sex life but that sex now for some reason seems to be feeling like the best sex Ive ever had? Its weird! I took a test June 3rd and it was neg. Took another one June 8th and it said negative. Am I still testing to early? If Im not pregnant then I dont know what in the world is going on! Oh today we went to McNasties (McDonalds) I ordered a fillet o fish. I took the bun off, to add ketchup and instantly I smelled the tarter sauce so strong ,that I couldnt eat it. Tried wiping the sauce off with a napkin ,then took a bite, and it about made me sick, couldnt eat it at all. Any clues on what could be going on since 2 tests said negative?

      Hi, I had unprotected sex on the 4th may. On the 10th of may I had a copper coil fitted. 2 weeks later I bled for a couple of days when my period was due but nothing more painful or heavier than usual. Anyway ever since I've been getting nauseous throughout the days, headaches, bloating/full/tight feeling down low, dizzy spells, a bit of cramping every now and again and my nipples have been feeling like they are on fire and now more of my breasts are sore/tender to touch. I done a pregnancy test over 2 weeks ago which Came back with a very faint positive I retested couple of days later and got a negative. I went to the doctors and was asked to do another test and that too was negative, he said I could of miscarried... however I am still getting the symptoms as mentioned above and if anything they are getting stronger... should I just wait it out and see what happens or should I go back to my gp?

      So me and my boyfriend had sex the first day after i got off my period, we always use protection because im not on birth control. That day we did not use a condom but he always "pulls out". my cycle starts around the 5th of every month, and it usually lasts about 5 1/2 days. about 2 weeks after we had sex I started feeling different. I started feeling nauseous i still occasionally do, I cant stand certain smells, basically ive been getting alot of symptoms all month and at first i was like it cant be my period because i just got off of it, so i waited until yesterday to test to test and it came back negative. So now im waiting for my period because its already the 2nd of the month to see if i miss it or not, but why would i be getting symptoms if im not pregnant? Is it true that if u have sex right after your period your chances for pregnancy are higher? Could the pregnancy test be wrong? Im just so confused right now.

      Hi

      I have been experiencing extreme signs of vomiting all hours even wake up in the middle of the night to vomit, my breasts are swollen and the glands are painfull by my arms and breast and very sore and heavy, my stomach swells then goes down and swells again, exceptionally gassy, stomach is not working as it should, i have missed my period for 2 months April and May now and the month prior- March - the flow was so heavy i had to change every 15 minutes , the pads would overflow. Very tired, was hungry at first now hardly wants to eat. Also I have a severe nasal drip in my throat, also stopped smoking since I started feeling like this, and i had excessive cravings which now all subsided. Early mornings and nights its mostly bile that I throw up.I throw up any time, before foid, after food, it varies. I actually have a very fast metabolism but now its not working, putting on weight and my abdomen is very very sensitive to touch and mistly pain on my left side. I have fever and aching joints at times. I tested a week ago early morning and test was negative. What i did have in End April after experiencing symptons was a severe tooth absyss that spread in the canals and turned stonish in the tooth canal. That was treated and strong antibiotics and dentist said the signs could be the glandular with infection. I am not pregnant and dont feel pregnant but I feel awfully sick.Also the gynea said before 4 years ago that I will have to go for invitro to fall pregnant because I do not ovulate at all, i produce no fertile eggs and does not look like it will change, i have had unprotected sex with my husband for 7 years and never pregnant.

      Please advise because I am seriously worried and cant seem to find a solution.

      Hi, so me and my bf had unprotected sex in April 29th, and we did the pullout method since I wasn't on birth control. By May 4-5th my breasts were very sore and heavy. It hurt to touch them at all, or to face the shower. Two days later I started to cramp really bad, and was feeling nauseous and not having much of an appetite. During this time I am bloated. I feel like a ate a bowling ball. I have been so tired lately that I take naps and even the slightest amount of exercise makes me feel like I'm out of breath. My period was supposed to start on May 14th, but did not. Instead May 15th I started spotting/light bleeding. It's not like my normal period so it's weird to me. I still have cramps, nausea, no appetite, weak and sleepy, and am bloated after eating or when I wake up. Today I tried to take a pregnancy test. I took it in the afternoon, but it was negative. I'm so confused. I want a baby, I know it's probably not the best timing, but I want to be pregnant. Just curious what all of this means and if I should take another test.

      Thank you!!

      Hello. I'm on day 34 of my cycle which usually last 31. I took an at home ovulation test on 4/4 and it read positive. For the past week I've been nauseous, dizzy and exhausted. I'm so tired that I can barely make it through the day without taking a nap. I tested this morning and it came back negative.

      I started birth control but stopped for a few weeks and started all over again. I feel super pregnant non stop throwing up, I smell everything and I've taken over 3 HPT and all come out negative. I'm hoping is my body just getting used to the birth control but now that I think about it, it's been almost 2 months I don't get my period and last time I did it was only a little spotting and about 3 days when my period is usually 5 days. I started taking the birth control again but I'm scared. If I am pregnant would this hurt my baby??? Please help!

      I'm having pregnancy symptoms. Nausea, bloating, headaches, no period since January, very hungry, very tender, swollen breasts, tired ALL the time, but negative pregnancy test. (These aren't even typical pms symptoms for me) I have PCOD and endometriosis. So I'm really hoping I am pregnant. But what's going on? Why aren't I testing positive? If I conceived in January, then I should be more than far enough along for it to show up on home pregnancy test.

I went to the drs today and git a negative test result. I have had my blood taken but no resukts as of yet. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

      My last period was on June 11th 2016. It was not a normal one either. When I got it, it felt like sore down there, and did not bleed as much as I regularly do. I have yet gotten my period (July 27th) I took a PT test at home and came out negative. Just last week that same soreness down there happened again but no bleeding. my husband and I did the deed last night and this morning I spotted a little when I wipe after using the restroom. Later in the day it didn't do it no more. I do feel my breast tender here and there. And I do get sleep during the day a lot. Could I be pregnant?

      Hi guys,

      I'm not on any BCP and my cycles are around 30 days. I was ovulating on 3 March which when we did the deed. A week later I started to experience sore, tender and full breasts, 3 weeks later I have a belly bump. 5 days before my supposed AF, I had a scanty brown spotting. Then I bled on 2nd of my supposed AF but I continue to have all pregnancy symptoms. However, on 20th April, I had a scanty dark red spotting and the next started to on and off bleed with clot but no cramping. Today, the bleeding stopped. I am 49 kg, 5 feet 1, and have no belly being trim. If I wasn't pregnant I wouldn't have a belly bump which I have now, and if I am I'd be almost 2 months pregnant. Anyone experience something similar?

      I would give it a few days, ovulation can be delayed and then so will the positive answer.

      Try another test in a few days or a week.

      Hi Sarah

      According to my calculations you should have gotten a positive pregnancy test for the last week, if you have a good test. That is if you haven't had unprotected sex since the 22nd of January. If the test tomorrow is negative you can be sure that you're not pregnant.

      Having a weird cycle after using hormones for so long is quite normal, it can take some time for the system to get the hang of thing again :) the hormonal unbalance can also cause the symptoms you are experiencing.

      Best wishes to you Sarah :)

      Hi! I'm 29yrs old and have been on some form of BCP for over ten years now. My obgyn didn't get my refill in on time, so I've been off the pill for over a month now. Usually if I miss a day or two of BCP, my period starts. While off the pill, my husband and I had sex (on Jan 22nd). It's been weeks now and I still haven't had a period at all. I have taken three at-home pregnancy tests; two a couple weeks ago and one last night. They have ALL been negative. Normally I would take this to mean I am absolutely not pregnant, but my period is still missing. I have also been having some symptoms: nausea (after eating, usually), lower abdomen cramps, breasts becoming enlarged.

      I plan on taking another test tmrw morning first thing (one of the first response early pregnancy tests) and I have an obgyn appt in two weeks, but I was wondering your thoughts.

      I haven't had any additional stressors lately, which I know can cause a missed period, but this is all so unusual for me.

      Hi Dimple b

      Try another test now, make sure to take it in the morning the first time you use the bathroom after you wake up. Your story sounds like you might be pregnant. If you get a negative test, it might be worth it to see the OB/GYN again, and maby have a vaginal ultrasound. Your last visit might have been to soon to detect anything.

      But to look at other things, nausea can be caused by a number of reasons, stress, anxiety and viruses/bacteria.

      I hope you get the results you want.

      Best wishes!

      Dear Artarmon

      I have two thoughts on your problem. The first one is that this sounds a little bit like the symptoms of bladders/cysts on the ovaries. It's not a dangerous thing but can cause hormonal imbalance and cramping. To check for those you need an appointment with an OB/GYN.

      The other thing is that you've had your tubes tied, which increases a little bit the chance of a ectopic (tubal) pregnancy. Studies have shown that ectopic pregnancies sometimes produce lower amount of the hgc pregnancy hormone mesured in urine pregnancy tests. If you have cramping mostly on one side of your stomach instead of in the middle, please get a sonogram as soon as possible, preferably today if you can, or tomorrow.

      Despite of all this, the most likely explanation is that your body is still recovering. 8 weeks is a long time, since most of the population recovers from mono in about 4 weeks, you could be unlucky, one of the few that takes longer. I hope all will go well, and you will feel better soon.

      Hi, I normally have a 28 day cycle, but in December my period was 3 days late and only lasted a day. Since around then I've had on-off nausea, constipation, tiredness, very light period-like cramps for 2 months now and in the last 3 weeks I've had very sore breasts and occasional bleeding gums. My latest period was a day early and also only one day (just one regular tampon needed). Pregnancy urine tests are negative, I've had my tubes tied and I've been sick with mono which causes nausea and tiredness so the doctor won't look into it further. Almost guarantee I'm not pregnant. But the sore breasts, cramping, nausea and constipation are driving me insane, 8 weeks on I'm not tired anymore, how long do I wait for these symptoms to go away on their own before going back to the doctor?

      The blood tests are very acurate, and the tests you took at day 26 outrules á late ovulation. In my opinion, you are safe. Worries and anxiety can easily mimic some pregnancy signs, like nausea.

      Im 23 and had sex a few times 26 days ago he had no condom but I was on nuvaring and took plab b 12 hours after. It was a mistake I drank that night ehichbis why I took plan b. 18 days after sex my stomach felt upset and I took a digital test and got a YES and freaked out and went to the doctors immediately. Their urine and blood test came out negative and I took 2 more at home that were negative. A week later at 26 days my stomach is still upset so I took 2 more tests that were negative with first morning urine. That YES is still in my head but I have all negatives including a negative blood test since. Am I just worrying my self sick over a false positive? Or should I trust the results after?

      Hi Hajera

      Spotting (small amount of blood, like spots) is common for women who have the copper T. The cycles can get a little irregular with small amount of blood coming during the cycle. It's a matter of choice which contraception you use, you might see this kind of spot bleeding coming more often as it is quite common. If it bothers you, you should discuss it with your doctor.

      On the other hand, to be sure that you are not pregnant, you should take another pregnancy test in 5-7 days.

      I can not tel if you are pregnant or not. You need to buy a pregnancy test and take it in the morning when you wake up. If it's negative, try another in a week.

      Not going to the toilet for 2-4 days is not normal, it would be wise to have your urine tested at a health clinical.

      Hi Hannah

      According to my calculations you should get an accurate answer from a pregnancy test around the 4th of December. So my recommendations would be to wait until Friday or Saturday, and retake the test with morning urine. Even tho it's very uncommon, women can get pregnant after a tubal procedure, and actually the chance increases by time.

      That said, it's not that uncommon to have a single abnormal period. If the test is negative during the weekend, you can wait for your next period, if it comes as normal don't worry about this. If you have more spotting days and the next period is also short, you might want to have a chat with a doctor.

      Good luck with everything, and I hope you will get the result you're happy with.

      I'm 35. I have 3 kids. I had a tubal done 12 years ago. I had sex with my husband on the 15th of November. On Wednesday, the day before Thanksgiving, I got my period -- what seemed to be normal but it only lasted until halfway through Thursday and completely stopped until the following day, and then nothing but spotting for a couple days. This never happens, ever, no matter what I eat, how much I am active, no matter the stress I'm under. I have been bloated that seems to only be relieved for a short time but keeps coming back, my breasts are uncomfortable, I've had constant nausea and slight dizziness/disoriented feeling that last for a few seconds. I took a test about mid day (Monday) and it immediately showed negative. I know that something isn't right with me.

      Hi Allie

      According to my calculations you still need a few days to be sure on a result of the pregnancy test. If you had sex 12 days ago, the actual conception can happen a little later, and it takes 14 days from conception for the hCG hormone to show on a test.

      I would advice you to wait 5-7 days before taking another test, and then you should take it in the morning and use the first urine that day. Then you will get the most accurate results.

      Anxiety and stress can contribute to that kind of symptoms, and yes stress, irrregular sleeping patterns, bad nutrition and drug use can mess up your menstrual cycle.

      I hope you will take care of yourself, as soon as possible and good luck in rehab. The only moment for a change for the better is now, you can't change the past so the only way to influence your future is to change it today :)

      So I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend on the 3rd of this month which is 12 days ago. I'm 4 days late for my period but it is irregular. Last month it was a couple days late and only lasted 3 days. My usual period only lasts 5-6 days. I've been getting weird stomach cramps, constant nausea, lose of appetite, headaches, urinating more frequently and am exhausted. I took a test earlier in the night but it came out negative. I was just wondering if you think I could be pregnant. I've been using a lot of drugs and drinking some too over the past about week and a half so I don't know if that could just be the cause of my symptoms. I'm 18. I've been using cocaine almost every day for about a week and a half, drinking alcohol a couple days, smoking marijuana some days and two days ago I did Molly,cocaine,marijuana and alcohol all in the same night. I'm going back to rehab but I need to know if I'm pregnant first. How long should I wait to take another test? I bought the top care brand that says they can detect 5 days before your missed period. I'm really scared that I might be. Can doing drugs mess up your menstrual cycle? I'm also under a lot of stress, could that impact anything?

      Hi Lauren

      There certainly is a possibility for false negatives, your cramp 12 days ago could have been a sign of ovulation and the later one could be implantation. The actual conception can happen up to 5 days after ovulation, and most pregnancy tests start showing positive about 14 days later. So you still have at least a weak until you can be certain on accurate result on the pregnancy test.

      Other possible causes for the cramps could be ovarian cysts, but since you have a regular cycle it's rather unlikely. Also colon cramps and constipation can mimic period cramps.

      I really hope this is your cycle ;) good luck and all my fertility wishes to you two !

      Hi there.

      I am 4 days late for my expected period. My husband and I have been TTC, so I've been tracking my periods for the last 6 months. Every cycle has been 28 days long, except for one in May that was 22. Now I am on cycle day 31 with no signs of an oncoming period. I don't recall ever being late in my life like this and I have had several symptoms that keep me wondering.

      I've tested every couple of days and I am still getting negatives. I should add that about 12 or so days ago, I had very bad cramps that I thought was strange, since I wasn't due for my period. The cramps only lasted a day, but then 6 days ago, I had intensely sharp pains in my abdomen that were so bad I actually went home from work.

      The pains, nausea, constipation, funky smells, fatigue, and missed period make me think my tests are false negatives.

      Any thoughts?

      Hi Lexi

      I know that getting a false pregnancy test can be hard when you're trying. To minimize the disappointment I would advice you to wait until there are 5-7 days after the day your period is due. That's the optimal time to get a positive test if you are pregnant.

      If your period comes on the right time, your symptoms could be some kind of flu, and possibly some mild anxiety. I don't know if you have been to a OB/GYN, but it's also possible to have ovarian cyst that can mimic some of the pregnancy symptoms, it's harmless but can cause discomfort.

      Good luck with everything and you have my best fertility wishes :)

      I'm at a complete loss here,

      I've been Ttc since July. My period is usually on a 28 day cycle. However my last period was only about four days, it started light was heavy then was gone, since then and even before then I've had signs. My breasts are sore, my viens are purple and small now, I'm always naseated, my head has hurt a little bit, light cramping, I'm moody and highly fatigued. I took a test last month and it came back negative, however the signs are even more obvious now and my period is due in two days but I'm afraid to get another result. What should I do?

      Hi Heather

      With cysts you can always expect some discomfort, and since you just came off birth control that would be the most logical explanation. This should not effect a pregnancy test but it can explain your symptoms. It's not unlikely for you to have irregular cycles in the following months.

      On the other hand, a late ovulation can also happen after coming off birth control and with abnormal hormones, so pregnancy is still possible.

      I hope this helped :) Best wishes

      I came off of birth control last month and was supposed to have cycle on the 21. Still hasn't showed. Been having mild cramps on and off, slight nausea,sleepy and tingly nipples. Took 2 test both negative. But with my first son i never tested positive until 10 weeks along. I have cyst on both ovaries and my hormones are not normal. Could that effect a pregnancy test or could my cycle and these symptoms be from coming off birth control? Thanks in advance

      Hi Cass

      It's too soon to be sure, these symptoms could also come from hormonal imbalance caused by not taking the pill every day. Give it a few days or a week, unless you are craving answers right now. The OB/GYN could test your blood, but they won't see anything with the ultrasound at this point. So if you can wait, that would be my recommendation, especially if you don't want to involve more people at this stage.

      Best wishes and good luck with everything

      In my opinion you could be pregnant, you are experiencing pregnancy like symptoms, and this period you describe could be implantation bleeding although it is normally only a day. You should take another pregnancy test around now, about a week after your first test. If the later test is also negative, try again in a few days. If still negative, you could be having an irregular cycle, maby talk to a OB/GYN if symptoms persist and no regular period.

      Good luck, hope you have a positive test by now :)

      Hello. New here; found via Google. My story: in a ltr that just broke up. Took a pg test, one of the early detection kinds, last week because my cycle is screwy, I've been lax about the Pill, and I'm having pg symptoms. My placebo week started yesterday, but no period, just nausea and vomiting. My PMS syptoms tend to be only moodiness and cravings, no bad cramps, but some IBS type stuff.

      I guess i am wondering if I should test again next week, call my obgyn now, or...what? I don't want to involve my ex until I know for sure. Thanks!

      Hello,

      I am on TTC since April with my husband.

      This month I do have very strange cycle and symptoms.

      I was due on my period on the 22nd September.

      I started to feel symptoms on around the 15th of September : cramping, lower back ache, pain on left side of abdominal, nipples sensitive.

      These all were very strange for me, as it sounds like period pains but I felt it came too early as I experience them always 1-2 days before period.

      My period appeared 4 days early which never happened to me before. It lasted 3 days (I usually have mine for 4-5 heavy) and it was much weaker than usually, could be seen by wiping mainly.

      More symptoms came around that time when "period". I started to feel nausea (but very badly), nipple started to be darker and all the symptom I had before got harder.

      The bleeding stopped absolutely but I still experience all the symptoms and:

      Yesterday I vomited due to strong smells in the kitchen and today woke up for nausea again. I have been in the bathroom more times during last night to pee which also strange as I always can sleep overnight.

      At the end I decided to do a pregnancy test this morning but it was negative.

      I am on 17 dpo and we did have intercourse with my husband at least every second day.

      Is there any possibility I am pregnant??

      Thank you very much.

      Cintia

      You should wait for one week and then take a new test if still no period.

      Hi Eden-Inabnit

      Fertilization can happen up to 5 days after ovulation and I would advice you to take another test after few days or a week. It's still possible that you are pregnant.

      It is possible to conceive and have an early miscarriage. In pregnancy these symptoms are caused by the pregnancy hormone. These hormones can be measured with a blood test and if you still have these symptoms and a negative test in a week, I would recommend that you get a blood test for HCG. Then the doctor can see if it is raised and that would indicate that you were pregnant for a short while. It symptoms persist it might also be advisable to have an exam by an ob/gyn to test for molar pregnancy.

      I hope all goes well, best wishes.

      I am 5 days late. My husband and I tried to conceive while I was ovulating and I have symptoms like tender breasts, sore enlarged nipples, cramping, fatigue, and nausea and vomiting but I have taken 5 negative pregnancy tests and even went to the doctor and got a negative. I am high risk due to connective tissue issues but I don't know if I conceived and if I did and lost the baby would I still have symptoms.

      I'm sorry for a late reply, was out of office for the summer.

      I have the same advice for you both.

      I would suggest that you get an appointment with an OB/GYN, you could possibly have bladders on you ovaries and it could be beneficial to let them test your hormone levels.

      I wish you all the best

      I have a history of irregular periods. This January I didn't have a period then February I had it like normal. Then march it was irregular because I only bleed for 3 days. And now it's April, I usually get my period on the 1st of every month, but I didn't. I was also sexually active leading up to the day I was supposed to start my period. I waited a couple days and it still didn't come. I've taken 4 pregnancy test and all have said negative. But I've had a little off and on nausea but not real bad. My sides also hurt. My breast are sensitive. And I'm not eating as much as I usually do. Can you help me? Do you have any advice?

      I've had cramps for a month now on and off, I still have negative pregnancy tests but I really feel a bubble type pressure in my pelvic area. I've never been pregnant before so I'm wondering is this how it feels when a women's pregnant? Honestly I would love to experience caring a child but I'm not crazy to the point where I would make myself think if I had symptoms my test would change. I don't understand what it could be. Any suggestions?

      Hey.... I haven't had a period since September 9th. I have had every symptom other than vomiting and still no positive test out of the 5 I have taken. What do you think the problem could be? Is it possible that I could be pregnant or could it be something really really bad?

      Hi Ande

      If you took your test in the last few days it should show at least a faint positive if you are pregnant.

      Wait a week and try again, if you get a negative test again you should make an appointment with a OB-gyn doctor to find out why you are not getting your period.

      Best wishes to you

      Lincia, 13dpo is a little too soon to take a test, you should wait a week and try again. By now you should get a possitive test if you are pregnant, I hope all goes the way you wanted.

      Dana, today you are 5 days past your time, a good home pregnancy test should be accurate by now, just take a test and see how it goes. I hope that you have the support you need if the results are unexpected.

      Best wishes to you both

      New here. My cycle came last month on the 23 and ended on the 25. A week later I felt like my cycle was about to come again at which I said this wasn't possible. I would cramp and it would go away. My breast would hurt as if they were cold and then they wouldn't hurt at all. Now I get nauseated after I eat and sometime vomit. I'm 13dpo and a BFN. In need of advice.

      So what if aunt flow came and went. she was over a week late and shorter than usual. 4 days instead of 6. before my period I had every pregnancy symptom in the book. and now after my period I'm mildly crampy, bloated, nauseated, and extremely Moody. very unusual for me. I took a test on day 36 of my cycle and ended up starting later that day.

      These symptoms may also be caused by certain kinds of birth control.
