I haven't come on my period,  i feel sick always, my breasts hurt and I have pains... Iv done a pregnancy test and it was negative.

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. Sounds like just a late period. ...Read more

My period is a week early and was heavy to begin with, however what concerns me is that is has lasted longer than my other periods and my breasts hurt, is this an early stage of pregnancy?

Probably not, but...: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. Urine tests are very accurate. ...Read more

Im getting cramps, my breasts hurt. My period is 6 days late. I took a pregnancy test two days ago and it came up negative.  Could i still be pregnant?

Possible: If you had sex since your last period, you could be pregnant. Please repeat the pregnancy test. If the result is negative repeat the test 4-5 days later unless you get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
