My period is several days late. I took a pregnancy test and it said negative. Having PMS symptoms. Am I pregnant?

No, not likely. Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications. A correctly done urine test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon.

Pregnancy. Yes you can still be pregnant. Over the counter pregnancy tests only detect the pregnancy hormone when it reaches a certain level.
