I don't want to scare you with vague possibilities. ...Read more

Period week late, pregnancy symp, but negative pregnancy test . Can i be pregnant ? Im having cramps , cravings and nausea, tender breast low back pain

Probably not...: The over the counter tests are very sensitive to pregnancy hormone, so if it's negative, then you probably aren't pregnant. Your symptoms sound hormonal, and should abate/resolve once you begin to menstruate. If you still don't menstruate, repeat the pregnancy test, and see your physician for further guidance. ...Read more

If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more
