I am getting mild heartburn,loss of appetite and lack of sleep but hpt -ve. Did I take hpt early ?

HI doc, for the past 2weeks I ve been feeling bloated here and there in my stomach. I also experience mild heart burn from time to time within these two weeks. In addition, my appetite goes up and down as well as my sleeping patterns. I took a HPT and it came out negative. Should I even consider the option of being pregnant or just schedule an appt for the OB/GYN?

Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
What was your due date of periods?If you did your pregnancy test at more than 7 days overdue and it was the first morning sample of urine that you tested then certainly you are not pregnant as the symptoms you are feeling are not so specific for pregnancy.

Period started 02/09 and lasted for 5-6 days. We were intimate on 02/15 but did not have sex, but I was on his lap naked. Scheduled ovulation was between March 2-7. On March 4 brown spotting, some dark blood, mild cramps,& headaches. These symptoms still remain 6 days later. HPT taken on March 4th was negative. My next period is due around March 19. Was it too early to take the test and could I be pregnant?

I am 41 had tubal ligation with clamps will be 10 years the first of March. I had my gallbladder removed two years ago due to gallstones. Lately I have been having almost like pregnancy symptoms, nausea and muscle aches. My last cycle was July 22. I did take a test came back negative so I am really unsure what is wrong. Sometimes my whole body aches I contribute it to stress and lack of. Sleep but now the nausea is getting bad at times.

Hello, I am 19 years old and have had my implanon since december 17th 2010, on monday the 22/April/2013 I had my implanon removed and another and more new version of the implanon inserted straight after. My doctor said wait two days until I have unprotected sex with my partner and I did, but since then I ve been experiencing a lot of symptoms for pregnancy. I understand that it is too early and that the implanon will give my body similar and if not the same side affects as a pregnancy at times. However, I have a weird feeling and so I am just wondering that for reassurance measures if I were... How long should I wait before taking a HPT? I don t get my period whilst having the implanon so I can t go off that which is why I am asking... Kind regards, krysta :)

For the past two days, I have been experiencing extreme pain in my lower esophageal sphincter when I eat, drink, burp, etc. It isn t heartburn but its a very sharp deep pain. I also happen to have a fever right now, body aches, and a headache (flu symptons). I am not sure if the problem I am having is somehow related to my flu or if it is something more serious. Any information would be appreciated.
