missed 3 periods, 5 negative urine tests, signs of pregnancy

I have missed my last three periods. My last one was on February 20th. I have taken 5 pregnancy urine tests, two of which were at doctors offices, they all came back negative. But I have all the signs of pregnancy, including a small bump that just appeared this month. Can I be pregnant?

Re: missed 3 periods, 5 negative urine tests, signs of pregnancy

Ectopic pregnancy (where the egg latches onto the fallopian tube & grows here rather than in the womb) can result in negative pregnancy tests because the hormones levels that signal pregnancy are significantly lower than with a normal pregnancy, but periods still stop. Having taken the morning after pill or a progestogen contraceptive (the ones you take every day of the month, with no pill free week) can make ectopic pregnancy more likely, and so can a family history of ectopic pregnancies. It might be worth getting checked for this, otherwise it may just be a hormone imbalance, which doctors can check by doing a blood test
