took 3 tests all negative suffered anorexia can that lower hcg levels?


looking for advice, have now been trying for a baby for the past 9 months. havent had a period for 2 months, feeling all the signs of pregnacy, morning sickness, bloating, really emotinal, increased need to urinate, very tired, sore breasts and incresed appetite. have taken 6 clear and simple strip tests in the past two weeks, but all were negative. was wondering if my condition (Anorexia) could cause me to have negative results. including being a smoker until i thought i could be pregnant.

any advice would be appreciated, no horrible comments please. thanks.

More likely the anorexia best bet go to your dr

Does anorexia not affect your cycles and fertility? I would consult the doctor especially if you have a low BMI. Your weight may need to increase to have a heathy happy pregnancy as these babies really drain us and literally suck the life out of us as they are growing x


Anorexia affects fertility. I'm sorry to hear you're going through it, recovery is hard but there is light at the end of the tunnel.

If you are pregnant, then you need to accept your body, appetite and emotions will change. In fact, it will be out of your control. Try and get some extra support during pregnancy, because you will need to nourish your body as well as your growing baby.

If you're not pregnant, please think about the above comments. If you're trying for a baby, you might need to be in a more stable place, both for you and your child.

As Miasplace said, best thing to do is go to your Doctor.

All the best x

will go to doctors , i am now at a reasonable and steady weight thats why i am now trying but having no luck my period is usually irregular but never this long 2-3 months , usually a couple of weeks late etc but not this long, if im pregnant will it show up in a blood test are they more accurate ? thanks for the advice

I think it will show up in a blood test if you are. Hope you get a positive :-), it's great to hear that you're at a steady weight too :-) X
