My period is a week late I have done 3 pregnancy tests which have all come up negative. Me and my fiancé have been trying to concieve and I feel as if I'm getting some pregnancy symptoms such as fatigue, breast tenderness, more frequent headaches, nausea and lower back ache. I'm really confused and unsure what to do and I
don't know whether it is normal to get a negative result at this point?
Doctor :   hi.
Doctor :   Dr. XXXXXXXX here.
Doctor :   let me read what you have typed
Doctor :   it is normal to get a negative result in early pregnancy. do not worry. i will explain
Doctor :   sometimes the urine pregnancy tests do come back as false negatives (negative even though are pregnant). this happens due to less concentration of the HCG hormone (pregnancy hormone) in urine.
User :   Thank you what do you recommend I do?
Doctor :   in such cases, test should be repeated after 10 days or a blood beta HCG test done along with a pelvic scan to confirm pregnancy.
Doctor :   since you are having positive symptoms of pregnancy, report to your gynecologist or treating doctor to get an examination done
Doctor :   and also go ahead with these tests as these require prescription
Doctor :   have you followed what I have said?
Doctor :   in the meantime, be on complete bed rest, eat healthy foods and do not lift any heavy things, avoid climbing stairs or walking long distances.
Doctor :   are you there? have you followed what I have said?
User :   Thank you for your help I will book an appointment with my doctor to find out
Doctor :   avoid having intercourse untill the pregnancy is confirmed, if you do have intercourse during this time, be sure to have it in your comfort zone, stop if any kind of discomfort arises
Doctor :   is there anything else I can help you with?
User :   No that's it thank you
Doctor :   thanks for consulting me. bye for now.
Doctor :   please get back to me if you have further queries.
