I feel pregnant and have many of the pregnancy symptoms.  I've missed my period but my home pregnancy test was negative?  Is that possible?

Missed period: Early in pregnancy, it's possible to get a false negative pregnancy test. This happens if the urine has been diluted by drinking a lot of fluids. Using the first urine of the morning prevents these false negatives. But more likely, the pregnancy symptoms are due to a skipped ovulation and hormonal fluctuations from that. ...Read more

If the blood test is negative for pregnancy but i still have symptoms of being pregnant what else could be going on?

What symptoms?: How long after the missed period was the test done? Could it have been done too early? A doctor would need to take a history, perform physical examination, including pelvic ultrasound to give a meaningful opinion. Lab tests need to be interpreted in the total clinical context and it is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion on fragments of information. ...Read more

I have symptoms of pregnancy but the test is always negative. I registered bleeding after a forced intercourse and pains at the ovary..Why?

Forced intercourse?: If your pregnancy test is negative repeatedly then you are not pregnant. You will need to see a doctor to discuss irregular menstrual cycles. I am most concerned about you mentioning 'forced intercourse.' no one has the right to touch you or force you to do anything sexually against your will. If you have been sexually assaulted please seek help. Support groups and legal options are available. ...Read more

See below: All of your statement may not have come through. However, if properly done pregnancy tests are negative at 13 days after a missed period, you not likely to be pregnant. If you continue to have doubts, you may ask your doctor to do an ultrasound examination. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

I'm having pregnancy symptoms but my urine test so said negative. What should I do now?

Depends: Did you miss a period? By how many days? If the urine pregnancy test was negative at about 10 days after a missed period, you are unlikely to be pregnant. You may wish to repeat the test in 3-4 days, use first morning urine and follow the instructions carefully. If you miss more than two periods, it would be time to see your doctor. ...Read more

Hey doctor i have been having pregnancy symptoms but the test keep coming out negative am confused?

Testing too early?: 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. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more

Yes.: Make an appointment to be on the safe side, or call your doc and ask a what point you should be seen to be sure everything is okay. Practice safe sex, of course, if you don't want to get pregnant (or get a disease, if not in a long-term monogamous relationship). ...Read more

I have all pregnancy symptoms took test it was negative I have clear discharge(4 more then 2wks)one time light pink. Late period but negative test. Y?

It depends: The earliest way to tell if you are pregnant is with an early detection pregnant test done on your first voided urine in the morning. This can be positive even a few days before a missed period. Your doctor's exam should be able to tell if it has been more than 4 weeks since ovulation. ...Read more

Home pregnancy tests: Are quite accurate. Multiple negative tests make pregnancy extremely unlikely. You may have a hormone imbalance.

Not likely: Birth control pills can cause pregnancy-like side effects--nausea, breast tenderness, mood changes, especially in the first 3 months. Typically those side effects go away fairly quickly. You should wait and see if your period comes as expected. If not, do a pregnancy test. Keep taking the pills daily without missing any for them to be most effective. ...Read more
