Period delayed, tender breasts, swollen stomach. Pregnancy test came negative. Could I still be pregnant?

I am nearly a week late and I am never late. Also I have tender breasts my entire stomach is swollen and I have sharp pain that comes and goes like contractions on my right side as well as a lingering dull uncomfortable pain. I have been checked for multiple medical conditions but all tests were normal and my urine test was negative for pregnancy. I also have an extra spot of swelling near my belly button that is a few inches it possible for me to be pregnant?

First of all, you should undergo one blood test for beta-HCG to confirm/ exclude pregnancy at the earliest. Some times pregnancy test may be positive lately.

In exclusion of pregnancy, other reasons are hormonal imbalance, stress/ anxiety, thyroid problem, weight gain/ extreme loss, irregular eating habits, psychological factor etc.

Need to investigate properly to pin point the diagnosis by complete hormone assay, thyroid profile, blood sugar & prolactin level, vaginal swab test etc. Consult with your gynecologist for proper guidance and medication.

Avoid stress/ tension, take healthy diet with Vitamin & iron supplements, control body wt, maintain genital hygiene and take sound sleep. Wear tight breast support to relieve discomfort.

Be well and take care.
