Epilepsy. Missed periods, numb hand. Pregnancy test negative. Pregnant?

I think I am pregnant but I cant get a positive test result I am an epileptic and wondering if this could affect my hormone levels... causing a false negative ...maybe my aed s or something. I have had sooo many symptoms I can hardly even remember them all to type them here along with a missed period and just dont know what to think... I need to go now because I am having trouble typing due to the numbness in my hands ... Oh I am 27

Thank you for posting your query.

Epilepsy or the use of anti epileptic drug does not interfere with pregnancy tests. so, the test would show a positive result, if you are pregnant.

However, if you think you are pregnant despite the negative pregnancy test, you should consult a gynaecologist and get an ultrasound scan done.
