Symptoms of pregnancy but hpt shows negative

Hi. The past two weeks i have been experiencing many signs of pregnancy. Such as vomitting, nausea, swollen tummy, fatigue, migranes, mood swings, making more bathroom trips, and darker stools. I have been on birth control since october, and my period has been regular. I was sick a few weeks ago, and the doctor perscribed amoxicilin, which can delete the effectiveness of birth control. I didn't know this until a follow up appointment on 3/06/08 and my boyfriend and I had sex 2 days, the days before my ovulation peek (3/04/08 and 3/05/0Cool. I was suppose to start my period 3/22/08. I had light bleeding for three days, but nothing like i usually have. Anyways i took one home pregnancy test last night and it was negative, and one this morning at 530 and then another at 830. All of them have been negative. AHHH!!! My boyfriend and I are terrified because we don't know what to do since i have all these symptoms. Please help!!! Confused

You did not have an ovulation peak, because you were on birth control. It takes away your normal cycle, so you cannot predict ovulation at all when you are taking birth control.

If it has been two weeks since you had the unprotected sex, then an HPT will be accurate. Because you had a period and because you are getting negative results, I'd say you're not pregnant and just reading into normal PMS feelings too much.

However, give it another week and test in the morning again. Testing multiple times a day is just a waste of a pregnancy test.

Pregnant, stopped taking birth control and now bleeding
Ok. So I found Out I was pregnant three days ago. Well that is what the Home Pregnancy test showed. So I should of been about 4 weeks into pregnancy. So I stopped taking my birth control. Three Days after stopping the birth control, I have started to have very bad pains in my stomach and cramping like crazy. Today I started to bleed moderately. But it has gotten heavier over the day. Does this mean I am going through a Miscarriage or that i wasnt really pregnant???

Well, HPT's rarely give false positives, so there's a few things that could be happening.

1. You misread the test after the suggested time limit and only saw an evaporation line, making the test look positive, and you are now experiencing normal withdraw bleeding.

2. You were pregnant and are now miscarrying.

I'd go to a doctor and explain your situation. They can do a blood test, which can determine if you are pregnant right now. Pee tests are great because they're cheap, but unfortunately they can continue to give positives for weeks after a miscarriage because of how the HCG gets into the urine. It goes into the blood first, so it obviously will be gone from the blood first after a miscarriage, abortion or birth.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
These symptoms are consistent with hormonal imbalance. It could be due to pregnancy or pills.
I would suggest you to have serum beta HCG level to rule out pregnancy.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
