Is it possible to have a negative urine test and actually be pregnant?

hello dr, one night before my period was suppose to start i had massive pain in my lower abdomen/pelvic region. I tried going for a bowel movement, but it did not help. Pain only last for 30-45 minutes. The next day my period was supposed to start, and it still has not, i am 8 days past my missed period. My last period was 18th of Aug, and I am on a regular cycle of an average of 28 days. The shortest cycle (last cycle of 26 days) and the longest ever being of 29 days. Now I am on CD 37. Negative HPT, more than usual headaches. My husband and I had intercourse on 7th or 8th of Sept, and according to what i remember I had ovulated either a several days back or just couple of days (can't exactly remember, just remember ovulating). Is there a chance my hcg level is too low for urine test to pick up, and maybe I actually am pregnant, and need a blood test done???? Or was it bc of that weird pain I experienced the night before my expected period that caused me to miss it??? (I normally never experience any sort of pain during my cycles). I am not under any stress, no diet change, no exercise. Is it possible to have a negative urine test and actually be pregnant?

Dr. Purushottam welcomes you to HCM virtual clinic.
I have gone through your query.
I think I have understood your concern, I will try to suggest you the best possible treatment options.
First of all do not panic.
If you had regular periods and you have missed the periods; negative urine test indicates that you are not pregnant.
In case of doubt, blood levels of beta HCG will be of help.
Simply if test is negative please be patient and await onset of menses.
If pain does not subside then USG is advisable.
I hope my answer helps you.
Wish you good health.
