Hi. I was wondering if I could get some helpful advice. In December, I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend. Although I know it's not fool proof, I looked at multiple ovulation calenders on-line and it turned out that we had sex (on different days)on my most fertile days. I was schd to start my period on January 5. I've typically always have normal periods so when I didn't start on the 5th, I took a pregnancy test at a local pregnancy clinic on the 6th that came back negative. Of course I started my period on the 7th. I normally have VERY bad cramps with my cycle but this time I didn't; just back pain. My period only lasted about 3 days. When I took the original pregancy test I would have only been about 2 weeks pregnant and according to different baby websites, there may not have been enough hormones for my test to come back positive if I was pregnant. I'm still wondering if I pregnant because I'm still have back pains and I have been having nausea every night for a week (I understand that some women have "night sickness" instead of morning sickness). I'm always tired and my appetite has incresed. I'm normally a light eater but lately I seem to always be hungry. I also seem to be more emotional than normal and I have been having headaches. Oh, and I have been going to the bathroom a lot. Does anyone think I should take another pregnancy test? I would be about 3 weeks now...I'm only concerned because I would hate to think that I wasn't pregnant when I really was because I would want to start prenatal care. What do you think?

I think you should go to your doctor and let them do blood work. That is the most accurate way to find out if you are. I had a friend that took 3-4 test and all were negative, she was indeed prego and 40 weeks later she had a baby. If you go to your doctor and you are they can give you any meds you need in that visit. If you can't get in right away then go to the store and get another test. It might tell you something. It does happen that you have your period during your whole pregnancy. My brother had a friend that had periods her whole pregnancy and never knew, she delivered at 7 months. Baby was fine.

Go see your doctor...

In November, I also found out that I have a cyst. I read somewhere that cysts can cause your hormone levels to be low and can possible give you a negative preg test. Does anyone know if this is true?

I went to the doctor
I went to the doctor and had a blood test and they told me I was pregnant!!! She was concerned that the baby was in my tubes, so I had more blood drawn two days later. My second lab results came back negative. The doctor thinks that I had a miscarriage...I was five weeks. They're going to retest my blood samples. How can you be pregnant one day and not pregnant the next. I didn't experience any pain or bleeding so how did I miscarry? I was so excited and now my heart is broken. As any one ever heard of this happening? Of course I want to try again and my friend said that you are actually more fertile after a miscarriage. Is this true? Any and all advice will be appreciated.
