User :   Hi, I am usually pretty regular with my period, every 28 to 30 days. I am 12 days late right now. I have taken 3 pregnancy test and they are all negative. This past week I was feeling a bit nauseous and with loss of appetite, but now I am eating normally but have had some diarrhea for the past 3 days. I have been told I have been kind of moody lately. Could I still be pregnant, even after the 3 negative pregnancy tests?
Doctor :   Hi
User :   Hello
Doctor :   Are you sexually active?
User :   yes
Doctor :   Did you involve in unprotected sexual intercourse recently?
User :   not lately but probably in the last month or so
Doctor :   The chances of you being pregnant are about 50% or less.
Doctor :   It may be probably related to an infective cause or stress induced hormonal disturbances that is probably causing the delay.
User :   I know my mom took several pregnancy test when she was pregnant and they all came out negative until she was about 5 weeks.. could my hCG levels be that low too that pregnancy test don't detect it?
Doctor :   However since pregnancy cannot be ruled out completely, it is better that you get this confirmed.
User :   i have another 2 pregnancy tests should i wait to take them or should i go ahead and take them in the morning?
Doctor :   If it has been 3 weeks not, then you can go ahead and get the pregnancy test.
Doctor :   Have you followed?
