Negative blood test

My last period was September 8th which would make me like 7 weeks. Well I've taken 10 urine tests, all negative and finally today I went to the doctor only to get a negative blood test.

She told me this is odd because all my symptoms point to pregnancy, I have a little weight gain, nausea, fatigue, a slight temperature change, bloating, sore boobs, the whole nine. It ***** because no one knows what's wrong. I thought it could be Polycystic Ovary Syndrome but I was told your blood work could show you that and I'm completely healthy. Any ideas?

There is no one specific test to check for PCOS. It's done based on ultrasound, blood work of your hormones and medical history. Symptoms DO NOT mean you are pregnant. Do you know what blood test she did? IE, did she say what your hCG was, or did she just check for the hormone. You need to have a beta blood test to see if your hCG is above/under 5. If its under 5, you're 110% not pregnant.

Even just thinking you're pregnant can cause these symptoms, and many are just part of life.

That makes a lot of sense. I suppose its just inside my head. But she just did a blood test to check for the hormone.

There's a Quantitative blood test which looks for a specific number of hCG in the blood. 5 and above is considered pregnant in most labs. A Qualitative blood test only says yes/no depending on the amount of hCG pregnant, and most  want it to be 25 or higher for a positive reading.
