Negative Pregnacy Test

Aman - January 26

I am about 4 days late for my period. I took a pregancy test today, and disappointed as I was it was negative. The thing is that I usally get my period by the 21st or the 24th of the month. I feel all the symtoms of being pregnant such as constant peeing, the feeling of throwing up. But the odd thing is that I have been being a little bit of pain in my abdomen for the past week now. At first I thought it was cramps and I'm going to get my peroid soon. But usually when i do get cramps they start 2 days before my peroid and then I get my peroid. But the pain I feel this month is very different than cramps. Also me and my husband have been trying to get pregant for the last 2 months. This month we had s_x as much as we could. But this pregancy test I took this morning was such a disappointment. But I am wondering if I took the test either too early or maybe I shouldn't have drank water before taking the test. I have a feeling that I am pregnant but this test really made me soo depressed. I am thinking maybe I should retest the test next week or maybe go to the doctor next friday. Whatever I have to do I hope to god that I am pregnant.

We're in the same boat, Aman. I'm a couple of days late and negative hpt tests too. I've been having tinglings and pain in my abdomen like my period is coming but it's not here yet! All the waiting is driving me up and down the walls!

I am going thru the exact same thing! I'm four days late also and I took a test last night and this morning and they both came back negative...HUGE disappointment! I still feel as though I'm pregnant, so I'm going to retest in a few says if I don't get AF before then. I've been having slight cramps as well, but they are much different than I usually get. I don't have any symptoms of my period yet either, so I really hope I'm pregnant! Good luck to both of you!

Jen, what HPT are you using? Apparently, Early First Response is quite good, coz it's very sensitive. It could tell if you're pregnant even 4 days before AF. I'm going to get some tomorrow. The ones I've been using are the cheap strips you get from the internet. Baby dust to you Jen, and good luck!

Thanks QLeO! I used Clear Blue Easy and after reading some posts on here, that might not have been a good idea! I think I'll try First Response later this week. Baby dust to you too!

Well I have bad news for me. Just a few hours I posted my message. I got my peroid. I was soo devasted, I cried soo much. But then my husband told me that like we still young, and there is always next month, and we will keep on trying until we concieve a baby. That made me feel a little better, but still I am very disappointed that I wasn't pregnant. So what I am thinking for the month of Febuary is possibly finding tips on getting pregant, i'm not sure if they will work or not but still. I want a baby so badly we have been trying for the past 2 months, and this time I was sure that I was pregant until I got my period. So wish me luck for next month .....

You need to have a little more patience, wait at least two weeks and do the re-testing again. If it is positive you will need a blood test from your doctor. It may be too early for any detection of HCG levels. Just hang in there - you have been only trying 2 months. I have been trying for 7 years so your not doing too bad!!

sorry Aman, I didn't realise you had got your period. Sorry to hear about this, but may I please a__sure not to give up hope - you have only been trying two months!! Most couples take at least six-eight months before they fall pregnant. Some 12 months. When you have been trying as long as me - seven years - than hit the panic b___ton. Do some research on the net/library and learn about ovulation. Ask your doctor to teach you the Billings Method or take your temperature daily. You will improve your chances of falling pregnant when you know when you are ovulating. Good luck and don't stress!!! You are young and have many years ahead of you.

Sorry to hear you got your period Aman. At least you know something for sure, and you can try again next month. I'm still not sure when I am. I'm 3 days late and negative HTPs, it's very frustrating. Grace, I went for a "traditional tummy ma__sage" when I visited mum, this old lady who ma__sage my tummy said that my womb was not where it's supposed to be, it was much lower and entangled with veins. She said that could also be one of the causes why women dont get pregnant. So she sort of moved my womb to where it's supposed to be. Apparently, many women who went to her got pregnant after 3-4 ma__sages. Well, I dont know what research or treatment you have done, but you might wanna check the position of the womb as well. Hope that helps. Baby dust to everyone!!

I hope all you girls get pregnant soon, it really sucks how women who want babies try so hard, and for some people they do it the first time and boom they are pregnant. Seven years is a long time to try, did you guys ask your doctor's why this its taking so long? I can't wait until my period is over, I am going to try my I heard that 14 days into your period is your time for ovulation is that true? And how do these temperature things work, I have never heard about them. I did some research on the net last night on tips on getting pregnant. I have a few that maybe you guys know but just in case if you don't here they are: Some dos and don’ts for getting pregnant Do limit movement after intercourse. Standing up after intercourse can cause the s____n to leak out. Try to wait twenty minutes after s_x before getting up and moving around. Do try to keep the sperm inside your v____a longer. You can hold the labia together to try to keep the sperm inside of you. You can also try putting a pillow under your pelvis to help tilt your body so the sperm can travel upwards easier. Do try to make s_x enjoyable. Sometimes when a couple is trying to conceive it will affect the quality of their s_x life. More enjoyable s_x means higher sperm count and better “swimmers”. Do limit intercourse and male masturbation prior to the days you are trying to conceive. It will help to increase the man’s sperm count and improve your chances of getting pregnant. Do take prenatal vitamins if you are trying to conceive. Folic acid and other vitamins are very important during the first trimester of pregnancy. Don’t drink alcohol or use drugs at the time of conception. This applies to both the male and female. There is strong evidence that alcohol can effect your chances of getting pregnant. Don’t douche after having intercourse. It can wash out the sperm that has just entered your body. Don’t have oral s_x prior to intercourse. There is some evidence that the bacteria in the mouth can cause damage to male sperm. Don’t have a___l s_x prior to intercourse. Bacteria in the anas can be carried into the v____a from the man’s p___s. If you do have a___l s_x before intercourse, make sure your partner washes his p___s first.

I am going through exactly the same thing. I have been off the pill for 2 months and I am 5 days late. I have been having cramping feelings but have not started yet. I also have been urinating alot and have been really craving salt ( I read that is a symptom). I feel like I am pregnant and I took a test yesterday and it was negative...I was so disappointed. My husband and I decided that I will take another in a few days. I took Answer, which detects at 100htp ( it was cheap)...some of the other ones at the store detect at it could be the test. I hope so...I hate not knowing and it is good to know that other people are going through the same thing! Good Luck!
