Hi there,
Thank you for your question.
The main thing that you need to understand here is that signs and symptoms of pregnancy do not start so early.
I mean to say that missing your periods by just ten days would not cause signs and symptoms of pregnancy.
Plus, symtpoms such as bloating, tiredness, cravings and changes in normal tastes can happen with numerous other conditions such as viral infections and even with hormonal changes that you mentioned which are very common when a lady is near her periods or about to have her periods or has just had her periods.
The most accurate way for knowing if you are pregnant or not is the pregnancy test.
If you have had that done, like you mentioned, ten days after you missed your periods, then this is very accurate at this stage and you are not pregnant.
Kindest Regards
