nauseous for a couple of weeks, but the test says negative

User Profile
I have been feeling nauseous for a couple of weeks now. I am also very tender in my breasts and very very moody. When I had my period it was very light and only about 4 day instead of my normal 8 or 9 days. I thought I was pregnant but the test says negative. Could I still be pregnant or is there any ideas of what could be causing the symptoms.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
The lighter and shorter periods and symptoms that you describe (breast tenderness, mood changes, nausea) could be few of early symptoms suggestive of pregnancy. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If you miss your periods, or if periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates, or if periods have been abnormal, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). If pregnancy gets ruled out, further evaluation would be done to look for underlying cause for your altered periods. Treatment as appropriate (based on examination findings and investigation 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.
Take care.
