2 negative HPT but still feel like could be pregnant

Sorry if this is a little long. I am 23 years old and finishing up my last semester of school. I have been on the pill since I was 16 years old. The bc I am on has made me had shorter periods (like 2-3 days) with two of those days having heavier bleeding. I last had one of my regular periods around January 27th. That same week I started an antibiotic for strep throat for a week. Then February 8th and 9th I took diflucan for a yeast infection from the antibiotics. I wasn't even thinking and on the 8th and 9th I also had sex a couple times just using the pull out method. My period for February (around the 25th) was just 2 days of VERY light spotting at its normal time but there was no need for even a panty liner or tampon which is unusual. Starting around March 15th I have just felt crappy. Nausea almost all day every day. Headaches like crazy, slight abdominal pain, feeling like I need to sleep all of the time (and I have never been able to take naps), lower back pain, burping all day I feel like, and feeling really bloated. I also had increased discharge but haven't noticed it as much this week. I've still been taking my birth control and my period for march was just a few days ago and was the same as for February. Just 2 days of VERY light brownish spotting- not enough to wear anything. I took a home pregnancy test on Saturday the 23 and it was negative and I just took one this morning and it was negative. I just don't feel right though. I tried to get into the doctor this week but they had no appointments and I am not sure when I can go because I don't have my schedule for the next couple weeks yet. Does anyone have any advice or been through this? I also go to an endocrinologist because PCOS runs in my family and have some hormone imbalance. Could that cause a false negative?

Hi there. I don't have an answer for you... but I too have PCOS, which makes it difficult to know if I'm really missing my period as there's no regularity to it at all. These past 2 weeks I have felt so many symptoms of early pregnancy as you describe - sore breasts, cramps in lower abdomen, sometimes what seems to be a bit of a throbbing sort of pain in my vagina. My discharge is creamy white and there is quite a bit of it especially in the last week. I have taken 2 home pregnancy tests and both came back negative... my mind tells me I'm pregnant, but I don't want to get my hopes up. It will be interesting to know what your results are when you get them! Are you hoping to be pregnant?

Not really but I just feel extremely off. If I am I will be happy and raise it and such. I guess of all times this is best since I graduate in a month. These symptoms are driving me crazy though
