Yesterday I took a HPT at 3pm after not going to the bathroom for several hours..it came back with a faint pink line. So I took another one this morning at 5am to confirm it , after being up numerous times through out the night to go to the bathroom, that came back negative. Went to the Dr today they did a urine test which came back neg. however the doctor stated that I still could bet..and that I should try in a week.... .so I didn't get a for sure yes, or no... Last time I had my period was the end of December, although had spotting mid January. I have had tenderness and sore breasts, nausea and going to bathroom a ton!! Prior to this I have always been very regular almost to the hour.... sooo confused. What are your thoughts...?? What should I do?

I have had to take meds and what have you. And now I have getten my period, any way my question to any one that can help me is I am taken ovulation test daily because we have no idea when I am fertile. And I am getting faint line and the box says that a faint line mean that you will be ovulating in the next 48-36 hours and I have been testing for four days. And the doctor is telling me to keep testing. HELP
