Brief Answer:
This doesnt usually happen and it is indeed a good idea to visit gynaecolog

Detailed Answer:
Hello ,

thanks for writing back, it is not usually seen that somebody tests negative this late, you can confirm by getting a blood pregnancy test if urine pregnancy test came back negative.

I would suggest you to visit your gynaecologist for complete evaluation there might be some other reason of your symptoms which needs to be found out .Usually there is a minor reason which is making a person worried.
And visiting your doctor would be the best plan.

I wish you the best of health.

Regards.

Dr.Ahmad
