I quit taking my birth control 2 months ago and I had a normal period from March 16-March 18. I was due to have my period around April 13th again, but here it is April 25th and Aunt Flo has yet to show up for a visit. I've been nauseas, exhausted, acid reflux, I've at everything in the house, and my breasts have been sore and now I have a shooting pain in them, I've been urinating often as well. I have a 2 year old, and when I found out I was pregnant with him I was 6-7 weeks along. I would be 5 weeks and 5 days today, and I have gotten 3 negative results. I used morning urine on 1 and other times with the other 2. I'm trying to wait until Friday to take another test, but I'm afraid of what could be wrong if I'm not pregnant. My husband and I had sex while I was ovulating, but we used a condom and he said it didn't break. I'm so confused! Could my HcG levels just not be high enough yet?

Well you sound pregnant, it might be your thyroid though, I wish you two the best of luck, I got some of those symptoms, I don't know if I am but I'm taking a test shortly, even though my fiance doesn't want me to, for me to know sooner is better right?(My symptoms are: headaches, cramping, lower back pain, headaches, dizzy, increased hunger, frequenter urination, nauseous, sore boobs, gained 10 pounds, and increased fatigue.)

Yea the sooner you find out, the sooner you can get prenatal care. I'm going to test again in the morning & then call my doctor on Monday if I don't figure something out. Good luck.

Plus if it's early enough in your pregnancy your HGC is low, so it would be harder to pick up on an hpt, but still should be on a blood test

Well 16 days late I finally started! I've never been more than 2 days late since I started having a period so it was really weird.
