Welcome to ehealthforum,
Your symptoms could be suggestive of possibility of pregnancy if you were sexually active during your fertile days. Wait and watch for your periods. Sometimes they can be delayed due to stress also. If you suspect to be pregnant, look out for development of any new symptoms suggestive of early pregnancy. If you suspect to be pregnant, or if you have abnormal periods, or if periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, do not delay in visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for further examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
The urine pregnancy test (UPT) kits are calibrated ones, so unless the hormone levels in urine reach a certain level, they do not show positive results. They can also show false negative results. Blood/serum HCG level estimation is accurate. UPT should always be done on early morning first urine sample as the concentration of pregnancy hormone HCG is believed to be highest in this sample.
