I'm supposed to get my period tomorrow, and I took a pregnancy test, but got a negative result. My breasts have been swollen and felt like they were on fire, and I'm experiencing back pain. If I'm experiencing pregnancy symptoms then why am I getting a negative pregnancy test?

Answer

Unfortunately, back and breast pain are not uncommon premenstrual symptoms (I experience them myself) that also feel like early pregnancy symptoms.

If you don't normally get those symptoms before your period though, and if your period hasn't yet arrived, take another pregnancy test. Sometimes, for some women, it takes a few extra days to get those tests to turn positive.
