Am i pregnant? I am over 3 weeks late for my period, i have stomach cramps, woke up vomiting a week ago, frequent nausea, headache, dizziness, tender breasts(well tender nipples), i feel slightly tired more as well and its much harder to get up in the mornings. I've been cramping but its been mild and feels like period cramps but no period I've had two negative pregnancy tests i took over a week ago...I have a history of ovarian cysts but these symptoms arent the same. I was told ovarian cysts can effect pregnancy tests though. I have no health insurance and i love with my parents who would kill me if they knew this, I'm only 18yrs old.
Welcome to ehealthforum.
Your symptoms (delayed periods, abdominal cramps, vomiting, nausea, headache, dizziness, tender breast and nipples, increased tiredness) could be suggestive of pregnancy. Urine pregnancy tests in early pregnancy can show false negative results due to les concentration of pregnancy hormone (HCG) in urine. Blood HCG test is accurate and can detect pregnancy earlier than the urine tests.
Consider visiting your gynecologist or thorough examination and investigations to confirm/rule out pregnancy and look for any other underlying cause for your absent periods if pregnancy is ruled out.
