I am so confused! I have been married for 2 years and I went off the ring back in August because it made me crazy. We're not really "trying" for kids right now.. we're using condoms and aren't very active. The last time we had sex (protected) was mid April.. say April 16th.

Last Tuesday, May 27, I was very sick. I was vomiting every hour or so for 15 hours until my doctor finally prescribed some anti-nausea medicine. I couldn't even keep down water! I felt sick all day Tuesday and Wednesday and still had some nausea on Thursday. On Tuesday, I took a pregnancy test which was positive.

On Wednesday, I took another test at home, which read "error." So I took another, which was negative. At that point, I was really confused so I went to a free testing clinic who did two more urine tests. Both negative.

On Thursday night, I started my period which lasted until yesterday with bleeding which was heavier than normal for me with terrible cramping.

Now, for the last several days I have been having terrible gas! I also feel like I have been peeing a lot.

Did I have a "chemical" pregnancy? Or am I pregnant now? I am so confused!

You are probably not pregnant now because you started a period and 3 pregnancy tests were negative.
When was your previous menstruation (that one before the last one on 29th May)?

I am not 100% sure because I am really irregular, but I think like the middle of April.

If your period before the last one was in the middle of April and your last sexual intercourse (protected) was around that time, chances for conceiving are very small almost none.
Even if you had early ("chemical") pregnancy you needed blood pregnancy tests to confirm it not some simple home (urine) pregnancy tests.

It doesnt sound like you are pregnant. But since you are still having symptoms I would see a doctor and request a blood test. Urine tests can be wrong.

Best wishes!

I had 2 negative tests before I tested positive at 5 weeks pregnant.

there is a girl in my town who tested negative on all of her urine tests until she was 6 months along when they confirmed that she was pregnant via ultrasound. i guess she got the depo shot right after she got pregnant (because she didnt know) and it messed with her hormones. perhaps you have a cyst or something on your reproductive organs?.. if your feeling funny, continue seeing a doctor, your body it trying to tell you something.
good luck

The depo shot would not cause pregnancy tests to be negative.
