I have been nauseous for close to 4 weeks now and its most mornings and some nights but ive only thrown up twice and today i took a test to see if i could be pregnant because i have most of the common signs of it, but the test was negative. I have also been spoting for about a week now and its brownish not a common color for a period I would have. iam also on birth control so I have regular periods.But i get my periods every three months and this is the month to get my period so iam not sure if I have missed a period yet or not. I'm having cramping and I dont have my period. but I did skip a pill by accident so I think I have a good chance of being pregnant. so I was wondering if I could be and when I should take another test to see if I really am?
Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum
If you had your last periods on Oct 18th then wait until Dec 18th before taking the test. If you are having nausea, vomiting, cramps etc and have missed a pill, you could be pregnant. However this would mean that you became pregnant last month. So your test should have come positive.
Usually signs of pregnancy appear after the missed periods and not before that. Other possibilities of these symptoms are severe acidity due to the pills, IBS, and polycystic ovary.
Please consult your gynecologist and get yourself examined as a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net. Hope this helps. Take care!
