Brief Answer:
Repeat home pregnancy test after 4 to 5 days

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thank you for trusting us with your health question.

The symptoms you are experiencing could either be premenstrual or early pregnancy-related.

Testing too early can give false-negative results.
You might get your period in the next few days. If not, repeat the home pregnancy test after 4 to 5 days.
Use the first-morning urine sample for the test as it will contain the highest amount of HCG.

You can continue at-home care with a heating pad for pain. Stay hydrated.
Also, discontinue Differin gel for time being as its use during pregnancy is not recommended.

Hope this answers your question
