User :   I recently quit taking my birth control and now I am 3 weeks late. Nose is stuffy, I am tired and irritable. Took pregnancy test twice, both negative. Since yesterday my nipples are so sore I can hardly wear a bra and my lower right abdomen hurts - I feel a sharp pain when walking or when I first sit down. Should I go to the doctor?
