Hi, My LMP 13/07/10 during which I was placed on clomid to help my ovulation, my cycle is usually 29 days and period lasts for 5 days but on 17/08/10, I got my period a week later than expected for 2.5days, then spotting for 1 more day.however, before the period, i had felt some pregnancy symptoms which i m still feeling. especially drowsiness, tiredness itchiness. I did HPT twice , I got negatives. Ive been placed on multivitamins and folic acid which helps alot. but please, could I still be pregnant?thanks.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
Your symptoms do suggest that you are pregnant. Sometimes urine/home pregnancy tests do show false negative results (a negative test even though you are pregnant). Continue to take the supplements given to you. The bleeding that you had during your last periods could be an indication of implantation bleed with less duration of blood flow and spotting.
Visit your gynecologist, and request for an ultrasound scan, blood beta HCG level test and serial tests (if the first HCG blood test comes positive) to see if you are pregnant. The rising levels of HCG in blood will confirm that the pregnancy is going on well.
Take care.
