Missed period. Negative pregnancy test. Dizziness, sleeplessness, nausea, stomach cramps, back pain. Pregnant?

Hi, so here is my issue..
I missed my period for the month of may and took 5 hpt and they came out negative.
I then started my period on june 2 and it ended on june 8, which involved few blood clots but I didnt think anything major.. now the passed few days ive been experiencing light headed - dizziness, i cant sleep at night but im completely exhausted and end up waking up at 12 the next day with nausea but ive never actually vomitted, today i woke up late again with nausea and lower tummy cramps and lower back pains. Is there a possibility that I could be pregnant? I dont want to waste anymore money on hpt just to find it negative again, and i also dont have health insurance at the moment...

Thanks for your question.
If your cycles were regular in the past & this time your period was unusual for you ( with regard to timings & bleeding ) then there may be a small possibility of pregnancy. Otherwise if you have a habit of irregular cycles then probably you are not pregnant. The symptoms you are quoting are not sufficient to diagnose pregnancy.
As you have pain in lower abdomen & back so I think it would be wise to have one blood pregnancy test to exclude the possibilities of an ectopic pregnancy.
Take care.

Hello and welcome to HCM.

Thank you for your query.

I have gone through your query and shall try my best to help sort things out.

First of all, the symptoms you are experiencing are as a result of your hormones. Now whether these hormones are at a high because you just finished your period or because you are period cannot be accurately estimated yet.

I would like to know when exactly you took the 5 HPT's? You need to give at least a 2 week gap since the sexual contact to use the HPT, you could also get it checked on the first or second day of a missed period.

Another fact we need to shed light on, is whether your sexual contact was before the bleed you experienced (period) or after? If you experienced a period after your sexual contact, it clearly indicative of an absent pregnancy.

Now, if you continue to experience these symptoms, it most probably has a hormonal cause to it, and even if you do visit your doctor, he or she would ask you to wait it out.

For future reference I would like for you to know that a HPT should be conducted either 2 weeks after the sexual contact or on the first or second day of a missed period, with an early morning urine sample to yield a most accurate result.

I hope I have succeeded in providing the information you were looking for. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications at: . I would gladly help you.

Best wishes.
