22 Feb 2010 I started with a brownish colour discharge that started the morning - (not much) and by evening time it was gone. What I saw was brown with a funny looking mucus that was sticky. I also had "period pains" but on and off. Since then I had the pains on and off and today it started and it is very sore. I also noticed that my breasts and nipples are very sensitive and sore. I also noticed that there is comming a white, yellowish, sticky stuff out of my breast when i press it. I started with lightheaded and nausea - i feel it but it is not that bad. Im also going to the bathroom a lot lately. I'm also very tired lately and wake up at night which I dont usally do. I also eat a lot more and picked up weight. I stopped the depo injection October 2009 and since then I have not got a period yet. I took a pregnancy blood test 26 Feb 2010 and it came out negative. I took a urine test on 01 March 2010 - negative and 05 March - negative. If Im not pregnant, what is wrong wit

Early Pregnancy Signs and Symptoms Answer A10516
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out.

The symptoms which you have described are classically seen in pregnancy and rightly enough you have done the pregnancy tests.

I’ll also suggest doing an ultrasound to rule out pregnancy. The development of the fetal sac occurs quite early and may be visible.

In case, pregnancy is ruled out, other causes of your symptoms may be due to hormonal imbalance, increased stress, eating disorder, increased smoking, alcohol or caffeine use and medical conditions like PCOS, fibroid, polyps and endometriosis.

Smoking is a concerning cause in your case. The ultrasound will help in not only ruling out pregnancy but also help in diagnosing any other condition causing your symptoms.

Please do consult a gynecologist for the same. I sincerely hope this information helps. Take care.
