I bled a week early. My breasts are sore & i've noticed way more bumps around my nipples. Neg hpt  day of expected period. Could i still be pregnant?

Maybe. Maybe not.: One can re-test in a week. An early menstrual period may be caused by changes in hormone levels, which can be due to anxiety, stress, overworking, intense exercise, fatigue, or excessive weight gain/loss. If pregnancy happens, a bit of spotting sometimes occurs 9-14 days after conception and may seem to a woman that she's starting an early period. If symptoms continue she can see an ob-gyn doctor. ...Read more

10. Days of missed period, getting white bumps around my nipples, negative pregnancy test, can I still be pregnant?

10. Days of missed period, getting white bumps around my nipples, negative pregnancy test, can I still be pregnant?

Time and technique: If you did the test correctly at 10 days after missed period and it was negative, it is unlikely that you are pregnant. Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor.
