This is a long one, so let me apologize in advance..
For about a month now I have been exhausted, my breasts have been swollen and tender, I have an increase in discharge, and am occasionally nauseous. I was due for my period yesterday and still have not started it. I took an HPT this morning and it came back negative. Could it be too soon to test positive or are the symptoms indicating something else? I should also add that I'm on BCP, so it's irregular for my period to be delayed. Thank you for your responses.

Re: Confused...

The nausea and tender breasts are really common symptoms for the first weeks of pregnancy. However, it's odd that the symptoms started a month ago. Either it's not pregnancy related; or if you have really long cycles, you could be pregnant; or if you have regular or shorter cycles, what you thought was your last period could have been just implantation bleeding (about a week after conception, when the zygote attaches itself to the wall of your uterus), and you actually are pregnant.

It is possible your pregnancy test was negative because, the way I understand it, the Human Gonadotropin that it measures takes a while to build up in your system after conception... I'm not sure, your body may not even start making it until implantation. Wait a couple more days & test again, first thing in the morning, with your very first urination that morning. That's when the HCG will be most concentrated.

Re: Confused...

It could be stressed or hormoan related or you could be pregnant. Some women take longer than others to build up an amount of hormoans. I had a friend who had to take numerous pregnancy tests before they came back positive because her hormoan levels were so low. I would do what was suggested before , wait a few days and test in the morning. If you then get a nergitive I would make and app. with my doctor to see what is going on. Good luck.
