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.

It was in the middle? I dont know if I’m pregnant or not but I have recently having symptoms of pregnancy like, sickness after eating or some times before I crave fish that i never eat? And when I eat something about 2-3 moments later I feel the urge to pick? And pee every 5-10 Minutes and I get lower back pain and rib pain also some chest and lower or mid abdominal pain it hurts to set with my legs close and that’s not normal for me? I also get light head and faint and get nauseous.. I also have a little discharge but it is not white it’s more like a clear wetness? I get headaches a I get really emotional I’m also gained weight I get tried a little bit. I been waking up earlier then normal like around 3 or 4 and I can usually sleep til 10? I’ve took 3 -4 home pregnancy test but there all coming back inconclusive so to a uti, I have a dr appointment on Monday to see if I am not I’m kinda scared? I really don’t jnow what’s going on and my breast don’t hurt but I do get sharp pain throw them and sometimes when I touch around my nipple is sensitive and I have white lumps or bumps tbag ive never there’s no change of color. Around my belly button it more sensitive but I have had gallbladder surgery, also my stomach itch more then usually?

      Hello Everyone

      thanks to everyone for sharing their story.. Makes me feel like I'm not alone.

      I've been trying to figure out if I am pregnant or not for 11 weeks now. I have numerous symptoms; constant cramping, moody, even rib pain, headaches, darker nipples, heartburns, my stomach skin hurts for some reason, nausea, etc... I keep testing negative. Blood, urine and a U/S at 5 weeks. I want to just give up but I just can't. October 28th was my last menstruation and the following 2 were just spotting for 2 days instead of my usually heavy 4 days. My stomach looks round and hard and I did not gain weight anywhere else.

      I promise to UPDATE but I could use anyone's kind advice. I worry about possibly experiencing phantom pregnancy too.

Food is making me nauseated I'm emotional I took a cheap CVS test and got a faint positive 2 days later took 2 of the digital clear blue tests and got not pregnant.

      So like two years ago I was pregnant and didn't know it until a month before. I'm supposed to be on my period right now but it's a day late, I don't have morning sickness but my breast are tender (usually are before I start my period) but I'm a day late I'm also gassy. I currently feel like a balloon I'm cramping my back hurts (could be because I did deadlifts)my diet currently changed from eating meat daily to now being vegan. I took two pregnancy tests and they came out negative. Could I possibly be pregnant again? I don't have cravings, I don't have morning sickness, a few nights ago I had excruciating stomach/back pains I'm spotting brownish maybe dried blood. And I'm just freaking out to be honest.

Yesterday i wasnts feeling bad at all but then this afternoon i vomited again and ive had a hard time trying to wear jeans anything touching my pantline with any form of pressure makes me feel nauseous now but i have no breast tenderness and im starting to have trouble sleeping and am tired all day.

      Hi,

      So a week ago exact, I was supposed to start my period but instead I was extremely bloated to the point that my stomach hurt when I buttoned my jeans. That only lasted a day however the next three days I had mild cramps (I still get them off and on) along with nausea and dizziness. On the third day I took some pregnancy tests and they all were negative but yesterday there was some spotting. I have all the signs basically besides sore boobs however that's how I know that something is happening because I usually have really tender breasts before AF comes but I haven't this time. I have to get some more tests hopefully today and take one in the morning or wait until Monday. I've never had problems telling if I was pregnant from my two pregnancies before, has anyone had this experience?

      Hi all

      My partner and I had unprotected sex on and off the week of ovulation. I’ve been pregnant before and experiencing the same symptoms- always tired - heart burn- sicky feeling (especially in cars) watery mouth. But when I did a test it came back negative. I’m due to start my period tomorrow, but I have started a light pinky today.

      Has anyone else experienced this ?

      So I’ve been nauseous going on two weeks on January 6th and no signs of it going away, my boyfriend and I had sex almost three weeks ago, is it possible to be pregnant. I started bleeding a little a couple days before my period was supposed to start and then stopped a day before my period was supposed to start.

      So after trying to help others I'll post my concern ( please note I'm not a Dr. and thise comments were my opinion based on previous experiences).

      So i was tsken off of BC in Oct/Nov. I've been tracking my period since Sept on a period app. My period normally comes ever 28 days give a 2-3 days or so....

      While I'm extremely nauseous and my cycle is 7 days late now. He and I want to have more children but the plan was to start trying Sept 2018. We've been using the old school not 100 % effictive "pull out" method.

      The test came back negative and part of me is thinking its just psychosomatic and it's all in my heaf. While the other part of me is thinking what it is was a false reading. .. It's so frustrating.

      I would be OK if I am pregnant. But I have fibroids and was going to schedule surgery and the beginning od the year to make room in there for the "future" bun in the oven. IDK if I could get them removed it I actually am pregnant.... wish I wasnt nausous and week late with a negative pregnancy test

      charchar123 2 weeks ago

      Zinta locherenberg -did you get your period yet? If not and your belly is geowing but your test are negative ask for an ultrasound. It may be fibroids.

      Jess- Go see your doctor. It sounds like you have vaginosis bacteriana. It's not an STI so no need to kill your man. But it's when your body homonal chemicL is a little off down there and can cause pain and pink discharge.

      Abigail adams and Ask- See your doctor ASAP and request an ultrasound. If its been 2 months since your last period, you're not on BC but experiencing pregnancy symptoms with a negative, you need to see your Dr. ASAP. Don't mean to scare you but it may be an ectopic pregnancy and those can be life or death serious.

      Piyu - you should be OK. if your periods are irregular it nay be taken a little longer to come.

      Wansuk lyngdoh - depending on you last cycle and ovulation it maybe to soon to tell. I found out I was pregnant with my daught when i was only 1 week along. i had milk build up. Dr told me i was pregnant but had to weight 3 weeks for a positive result. if it hasn't been 4 weeks since your last period give it some time

      Well me and my fiancé had unprotected sex around the week of the 23rd of October and I’ve been trying to get back on my birth control but I’ve missed a few pills this month so i know there is a chance of getting pregnant but we kind of avoided thinking about it. Well I don’t start my next period until tomorrow and like a week ago I️ noticed that my nipples had started hurting so bad for a few days, I’ve also been really moody, and also I was at work one day last week and I was cramping a little and I went to the bathroom and there was a little light colored blood but after that day it never happened again. Also like three days ago I’ve started losing my appetite, I’ll get so hungry then I’ll start to eat a few things then just lose my appetite really fast. I’ve also took two pregnancy tests so far but I also know it could be too soon to take it sense I’m not suppose to start my period until tomorrow. Just wondering if there could still be a chance of me being pregnant or if I’m just worrying too much about it. Honestly I’m hoping that I am pregnant.

      Confused and anxious 2 months ago

      My husband and I are trying to conceive. I ovulated around the 13th October and we had sex just before that.

      I had 2days bleeding on 20/21st 5days before period was due & now I am 4days late. I have mild cramps,occasional lower back pain,I feel nauseous on and off for most of the day & have now started feeling extra tired. I even had a head ache the other day which I never get. My cycle is normally 35days.

      I took a supermarket test the day before my period was due and it was negative but I happened to look later in the day and could see a faint line. I took a early detection test on Friday and another supermarket test today (Monday) but both were negative. Not sure what to do now?

      So confused! I am three days late. I have been gassy, bloated, headachey, extremely tired and foggy headed, I'm breaking out like CRAZY on my face (could be stress, I dunno), I've been dizzy, and developing weird food aversions, and the day I was supposed to start my period, instead I woke up to some cramping, and some brown spotting, but no period still. I never cramp unless my period is starting so that was very, very weird for me. Highly unusual. Brown spotting has been known to occur through out my cycles on occasion because I use progesterone cream. Also, my partner and I were definitely having unprotected sex around the time of ovulation, however, I havent had an unplanned pregnancy for two years so I don't even know if it's likely or not? I've definitely been under more stress than usual but I've never had cramps with no menstrual cycle before no matter how stressed I've been. Does that happen where the body just "almost starts a period" but then stops? Or am I likely pregnant? I'm going crazy.... Can one literally create physiological symptoms like this if they really want to be pregnant too? Like, can this all just be psychosomatic?

      Hi Arielle

      I'm sorry but you are testing too early, you cant trust a negative test until 2-3 weeks after conception. You should test again in a week from now, at least not until after the 29th of October, before that you will have a negative test even if you are pregnant.

      If your period does not come during the coming week, test again after next weekend.

      Best wishes to you, hope everything will work out for you.

      My boyfriend & I had sexual intercourse with a condom on September 4th. My period came around the 22nd or 23rd of September. We had sex again on the 10th of October & the 15th. On the 15th, we had sexual intercourse with a condom but it popped and we just finished off raw. I’ve been having pregnancy symptoms such as nausea, back pains, stomach cramps, dizziness, minor headaches & fatigue. I’ve missed my period, took two home tests and they both came back negative. I don’t know if I’m pregnant or not.

      Hi Latoya

      The pregnancy test should be accurate by now, it's been almost a month. If it would have been implantation bleeding around the 9th you should definitely be getting a positive test by now.

      I'm wondering if it could be some effects of the pill, is it a new brand for you ? Also if you take it irregularly it could be causing hormonal imbalance.

      Hi Triple Threat

      It would be best for you to take a pregnancy test, it should be accurate by now. If its negative, there are other reasons for your symptoms.

      Hi Lela thomas

      You might be taking it too soon. Try again a week after the test. If that is also negative, it's likely that you have other causes for these symptoms.

      Hi Crystal

      If you started to have cramps on the 8th, it's possible you had an early ovulation, if you got pregnant around the 9th or 10th, you might get a positive test from the 24th of October. So you could take a test in a few days, if negative wait for your period to come, if it doesn't show, take a new test after that.

      Hi Moniqua

      How long ago was that extra bleeding ?

      Have you been irregular before ? If you are having bad cramps on one side of your stomach you should go to hospital again and ask for a ultrasound examination to be sure you don't have a tubal pregnancy.

      Hi Michelle

      What kind of pain is this, on one side or in the middle of the stomach ? If its a general pain or more to the right I would wonder how your digestion is going. Sometimes constapation can cause pain. You also took the test a litle to early, did you take a new one since you wrote the comment ?

      I had sex on sept 24th when I was suppose to start a new pack of birth control. I missed that one & sept 25th. Didn't think anything of it. We didn't use protection. About 2 weeks later I started showing symptoms but wasn't sure. I was nauseous morning but especially at night. I was spotting and it was brownish like implantation bleeding. Boobs didn't hurt, had mild cramping. Was super tired and was peeing all the time. Took a few tests all came neg, went and got blood taken a week later and came back neg. my period was suppose to start on wed oct 17th but I spotted from Tuesday until Thursday again dark brown. Took another test Thursday and it was neg. should I take another test? Do I have something else wrong? I'm a little upset because I was expecting it to be postings having so many symptoms.

      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
