Brief Answer:

It is possible, would need a pregnancy test

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

It is possible that you are pregnant if you are sexually active and not currently using contraception.

The best way to confirm this would be either a urine or a blood test for HCG (pregnancy test).

This is hormone is normally detectable in the urine 11 to 14 days after conception, detected in the blood a few days earlier.

Over the counter pregnancy tests are usually accurate so you can purchase one from your local pharmacy.

If the test is truly negative then other causes for your symptoms would need to be found

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Brief Answer:

If tests done after 11- 14 days, then accurate
