Early Pregnancy Signs and Symptoms Answer A13526
Hello,
Welcome to ehealthforum.
The symptoms that you have do suggest that you might be pregnant.
Since the bleeding you had was very light, it could be a decidual bleed even though you are pregnant.This type of bleeding happens in few women during the first 3 months of pregnancy at the expected time of their periods. The reason for this is that the baby still does not fill the entire uterus, so the remaining endometrial lining (apart from attachment of placenta) gets shed cyclically.
The pregnancy tests being negative even though you have symptoms of pregnancy could be due to less concentration of pregnancy hormone (HCG) in urine.
Discuss with your gynecologist/doctor about getting an examination done along with a blood beta HCG level, and ultrasound scan to confirm your pregnancy.
Hope this helps. Take care.
