Pregnancy Symptoms but tests negative

I am having some symptoms of being pregnant(weight gain, breast swelling and tenderness, mood swings) but I have taken several tests that show negative.  Also, for the last 2 months my periods have been at least 4 days late and really light, and I am having discharge throughout the month.  I was diagnosed with endometriosis about 3 years ago, but since my surgery none of the dr's have been concerned.  I did have abnormal cells show up on a pap, but the biopsy turned out ok.  I'm not sure what the problem is, and I have sceduled an appt, but is there anything I can do until then?

Hi, I am only a week late for my period and I am never late. I always know when I'm due on, I get chronic period pains my abdomen swells and it seems as though my ovaries are swelled too. I have done two pregnancy tests, one in an evening, and one the following morning, both show negative. I have still not come on, have swollen, really sore breasts, horrid to touch, my lower stomach is swelled and hard, I have been sick several times at the same sort of times in the day, feeling really tired and constantly peeing. My mind keeps telling me I'm pregnant, and as me and my partner have been trying for a whole, I'm getting my hopes up. Could I be pregnant, should I leave it a few more weeks and if no signs, visit doctor for blood test? I hear a lot about people not have enough hcg in their bodies to be detected from a home pregnancy test. HELP

Hi Icecrystal2009-

I am going thru the same things now. I am down to an ultrasound. I never knew a person's HCG levels could be so low only a sonogram can tell. I wonder does this have anything to do with age and weight as well?? DO you know??

I am 9 days late I'm never late. My lower back hurts lower stomach is hurting and I look like I've gained a few pounds. I'm a moody emotional mess. I took 2 tests 5 days ago and got negative results and took another one two days ago with negative. Should I wait another week to test again or just go to the doctor

Going by what you've mentioned, i would probably put it down to you wanting a baby so much that you notice the slightest change in your body. So when you do notice it, your brain instantly goes into "i could be pregnant" mode... So if you keep thinking about it, your body will adjust to the new belief you have that you are pregnant. So the body adats (gets bigger as time goes on, cravings appear and disappear) as if it was a real pregnancy. However, this is called a phantom pregnancy. You go through everything from the symptoms to the belly growth and sometimes even the birth to have nothing at the end of it. Try and relax your mind over the pregnancy idea with a more "if it happens,then it happens" kinda thought track...  Who knows, there have been many of my friends who had that mind track and ended up pregnant for real. Good Luck x Caitlin

I have always had crazy period cycles... sometimes I will go about 6months too a year without a period, the last time I had my period was the end of may this year. so we where not sure I could even get pregnant.. about the first of August I started feeling different like a pressure on my lower stomach, and being tired... you know I knew something was diff with my body so i took a pregnancy test (Safeway digital test) that day and it came back negative I waited about a week and still felt weird and sooo tired, and kinda nauseous so i when I woke up on Aug 8th I decided too take the other test and see what it would say and too my surprise It said pregnant! I was sooo excited I couldn't believe it so I took another one later that day only too have it say negative again, I have sense taken 6 more tests even 1 at pph and all have come back negative... but my body still feels different, I feel sooooo tired, have headaches, dizziness constipation, lower back pain, lots of bathroom breaks, and even that pressure still in my lower belly... anyone else have this happen... am I pregnant??? PPH wont do a blood test yet im sooo freaked out I miscarried  (even though there has been no blood yet) or its a tubular pregnancy. I hope im wrong and im just not producing enough hormones yet.. any thoughts?

Myself and my husband have been trying for a baby for a few months, since coming off the pill march 2012 my periods have been very irregular I have only had 2 periods in total. I have visited the doctor and been referred to a specialised who recommended provera to start my periods and clomid to help ovulation. I took a course of clomid and provera in may 2013, but then came on my period naturally on holiday on 8th July. I have not come on my period which isn't odd for my cycles. I have done 4 tests that have all come back negative. I really feel pregnant though stomach cramps and tenderness, feeling sick etc. I'm hoping its not wishful thinking but I have no one to talk to about this as I don't want people or my husband to think I'm going crazy. I have booked a doctors appointment for later in the week but scared the doctor will think I'm crazy! Advice please

I would get that checked out. I don't want to scare you but I had those same similar symptoms 6months but my pain was just on one side and it was an ectopic pregnancy.But I don't believe that u could convince your body into being pregnant.Have you taken a HPT yet?

So I've had cramps for the past two weeks and I'm now 10 days late for my period but all the HPT's I took were negative. I've never been late before and my lower abdomen has been in so much pain. Should I go get a blood test? Has this happened to anyone else, and if so were you pregnant?

Last month I had my period earlier than usual and the month before that I took a test and it came out negative and I got my period right away
I've been really moody lately and I've had some crazy dreams and I've never really had that happen before I get sick in the morning every morning and at night its like a crampy tired nausuea feeling but I don't actually vomit I think about being pregnant a lot because its the only plausible reasoning for my problems I have sore breasts I'm bloating but not really crampy like my usual mentrual cycle could be it be posible that I'm having an irregular first trimester?

I am 33 yrs old and I had a still birth in 2005 and a DNC in 2008/2009. I have always had irregular periods when I had still birth I didn't have a period for 5 months. Before March of this year (2014) I haven't had one in 2 yrs. At first I had some sick times. Throwing up or just feeling drained I have almost feel in the shower cause I couldn't stand up straight. I took a HPT and it came out negative. Then all of the sudden I can't wear my clothes my boobs hurt, I took 2 more tests. I took one as soon as I got home from buying the tests. Then the other 3 days later thinking I needed to take it with first morning urine. But everything is still coming out negative. Today I can't even lay on my stomach because my boobs are so sore. I think I am pregnant I just don't wanna get my hopes up from everything I have already been through. What do I do?

Hello I am a bit nervous writing this but my period is due in 3 days and I'm experiencing extremely tender breast, frequent urination, mild lower cramps, on and off heartburn, and I'm finding myself taking evening naps around 6-7 o'clock pm. The worst part of it all for the past week I cannot sleep at night. I have taken 4 Pregnancy Test (first response) and they are all negative- I have two other daughters and from my past experience whenever I feel this way I'm pregnant. But the test are negative and worst case of it all I have been so emotional. Can someone please give me some advice.
Avatar universal
hi saiidie I would maybe wait abit longer as you could possibly be pregnant but it may be to early to tell so thats why the test is showing negative , or maybe the stress of thinking that you are pregnant has led you to have phantom symptoms, so experiencing pregnancy symptoms but not actually pregnant. However i would speak to your doctor about this.
good luck
