a little discouraged how can I get pregnant?

My fiance and I been trying to get pregnant for two years now but nothing has happened so I got this ovulation app that's is supposed to help me conceive. But today I took a pregnancy test and it came back negative but I'm supposed to take a pregnancy test on my 12 day and its three days early and my menstrual Is not due to start until March 28th so could I still be pregnant? I've been having heartburn in lower stomach cramps. my breasts are sore but my nipples are just a little sensitive. I'm becoming a little discouraged how can I get pregnant?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
If you had been trying for pregnancy and if the symptoms suggestive of pregnancy have been persistent, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, visit your doctor/gynecologist for further examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Sometimes you can keep getting false negative results with urine pregnancy test kits during early pregnancy as the kits are calibrated ones, so unless the hormone levels in urine reach a certain level, they do not show positive results. Urine pregnancy test kits usually start showing positive results after about 18-20 days post-conception (roughly corresponding to about 1 week after your missed/altered periods). The test should always be done on early morning first urine sample to get accurate results (pregnancy hormone HCG is believed to be in highest concentration in this sample, and you should avoid lot of fluid intake and caffeinated beverages in the night before taking the test). If pregnancy gets ruled out, further evaluation would be done to look for underlying cause for your missed/abnormal periods. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and evaluation results) would be started to help you regulate your periods. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
