Negative tests

Hi, I'm trying to conceive & last month tracked my ovulation with strips & got a positive lh surge on the 16th & had unprotected sex. I have slightly irregular periods so don't have a set cycle length, I do use an app to keep track of them and was expecting my period on the 5th of this month. I have had a lot of early pregnancy symptoms hot flushes, dizziness, increased frequency in urination, headaches (i never get headaches!) Tender breasts wwhich increased in size slightly & have stayed larger than normal, bloating, constipation, feeling a little strange and nauseous, yesterday my gum bled when I brushed my teeth, strange tastes and at the weekend I was craving chocolate ice cream which I don't really like. However I got what I thought was my period early on 30th, it was same flo as my normal period to start with but then stopped after a day, it the started again the flowing night a lot lighter, kind of pinkish, then stopped again & finally went a little heavier for a 4th day and then stopped completely. Now although my periods are irregular they always last a full 6 days & never spot in between. I have taken a number of pregnancy tests all of which have been negative. I took one today as that's over a week after my strange bleed / period & a few days after my predicted period on the 5th, as I'm still having a lot of the symptoms. Am I just imagining it and hopeing for good news or could I be pregnant? I'm so confused with all these websites giving me different info.

  • Hi Amy,

    Yes, there is so much conflicting advice on the internet about pregnancy signs, symptoms, and testing it is completely understandable that you are feeling confused. I think the best thing to do would be to go and speak to your GP or a nurse at your local sexual health / contraceptive clinic and do another test with them. They can discuss your dates with you in person and hopefully give you a clearer idea as to what is going on with your cycle. A nurse or doctor will be able to give you individual advice based on your circumstances which should be more helpful than some of the advice online.

    And sorry for not getting back to you sooner.

    I hope this helps.

    Best wishes,


  • Thanks katherine, I think il make an appointmant

  • No problem at all. Yes, I think an appointment would be a good idea as they can talk about your dates and your cycle and hopefully give you a clearer idea of what's going on.

    Best wishes,
