back pain in my muscle and bone and also abdominal pain?

User Profile
I have been experiencing back pain in my muscle and bone and also have abdominal pain for over a month. I'm nausea and my breasts are so sore. It is horrible. The last date of my period was July 23rd. I haven't started since. I took a pregnancy tetsts 2 days after I was supposed to start in August but it came out negative. Is it possible I can still be pregnant.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms (absent periods, backpain, abdominal cramps, nausea, sore breasts) could be suggestive of possibility of pregnancy. If you have been sexually active during your fertile days (and if you are not on any form of birth control measures) then chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out. If pregnancy is suspected, look out for development of any new symptoms. Urine pregnancy test kits usually start showing positive results after about 20 days post-conception (roughly corresponding to about a week after your missed periods). You should consider visiting your gynecologist for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately as early as 11 days post-conception). Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet.
Take care.
