Gastritis symptoms and pregnancy

User Profile
I've been trying to get pregnant from my boyfriend for a couple of months now, but never happened. now my period is a week late, i haven't been able to eat because when i do eat it makes me want to throw up or i get full real quick. i wake up at times feeling like throwing up but never do. i took a pregnancy test it was negative. also my pee has been real yellow n i have been hidrating. that's all i do since it's hard for me to eat without getting the feeling of throwing up. what is wrong with me?

The symptoms you reported (feeling morning sickness, nausea, but no vomiting, menstrual period one week late), are not specific enough for a definitive diagnosis to be given. Morning sickness is one of the non-specific symptoms of pregnancy. It might be accompanied with vomiting.

The test you took might indicate that there is no pregnancy, although there is a small chance that it was false negative (negative result when the actual condition is positive).

You might want to visit your gynecologist for a physical examination, hormonal laboratory test, and ultrasound scan to confirm or to rule out pregnancy. If no pregnancy is detected, you might be advised to visit a specialist in the upper gastrointestinal tract because the nausea might be related to gastritis. Gastritis is an inflammation of the stomach.

There are several possible causes for gastritis, perhaps the most frequent being Helicobacter pylori. A simple blood test might check for antibodies against helicobacter pylori. If the presence of Helicobacter pylori is detected, then adequate therapy would be recommended.
