There : There is a chance that you could be pregnant. The hormone of pregnancy (beta hcg) that is detected in over the counter home pregnancy test varies from test to test, meaning the amount it picks up varies. If you are in the early stages of pregnancy, then there is a chance that the level is too low for the test to pick it up so to speak. To be certain a blood test can be ordered by your familty doctor or ob/gyn to give you a definitive answer. The more pressing issue is the the burning and cramping you are feeling in your lower abdomen. This could be a sign that you may miscarry if you are pregnant, premenstrual cramps, or even a UTI (urinary tract infection). It is up to your doctor to figure this out.On the other hand, if in fact you are pregnant, serial blood tests can be done to determine if your pregnancy is progressing or not (inevitable miscarriage). Either way you need to be seen right away. Good luck to you. ...Read more

Hyperstimulation?: I assume that the, "pills for pregnancy" are to help you conceive? They are likely causing stimulation of your ovaries. The follicles that form will normally rupture when they release an egg. When stimulated, there tend to be more and larger follicles that can cause pain, especially when they rupture. ...Read more

Is it normal to feel little spasms and twitches in lower abdomen during early pregnancy. Also what feelings are normal during early pregnancy. ?

Yes: Your uterus is a muscle and it will spasm. Make sure not peeing all the time. If the pain goes to one side and is getting worse and you haven't had an ultrasound, get one. The risk of a pregnancy in the tube is about 1-2/1000 but needs to be dealt with. Otherwise generally nausea early. ...Read more
