Thanks for the query.
If you are having regular ovulatory menstrual cycles and if you had unprotected intercourse around the time of ovulation, there is possibility of pregnancy.
The symptoms you are having could be due to:
- Premenstrual syndrome due to hormonal effect.
-Pelvic inflammatory disease.
-Signs of early pregnancy.
Urine pregnancy test may not detect the early pregnancy sometimes.
So if you cross your expected date of periods, consult gynecologist once and go for blood test for pregnancy.
Blood test can detect early pregnancy accurately compared with urine test.
If the test comes negative, the possibility of pregnancy is less.
And you may get your periods soon. Meanwhile you can go for symptomatic treatment.
And in the next cycle you can plan for pregnancy by tracking the ovulation.
Take care.

Hello ma'am.

I would advise a general body check up with vitamin levels, hormone levels, abdominal and pelvic ultrasounds, etc. These all come in a package and I would think that is the best next step.

Your symptoms are slightly vague and I would also request a repeat pregnancy test to be conducted using an early morning urine sample at least 2 weeks from the suspected date of conception or on or after a missed period.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes.
