Pregnancy Symptoms but Negative Result...

So I'm a 24yo female, and I need help on possible diagnosis of my symptoms.

I am approx. 3 days late for my period (I'm not alway regular), however I have done a pregnancy test which has come up negative. Aside from being late, I have noticed very prominant veins in my breasts that lead into the nipple and they seem to ache slightly with a few sharp pains in them every now and then. I'm always tired (no matter how much I sleep) and can not sleep through the night without having to get up and go to the toilet. I have started having weird dreams (previously not a bigger dreamer that I can remember). I have also had a fair bit of gas, and some pains in the left side of my abdomen.

So I know most of this screams pregnancy, but as I said, I've tested and it's come up negative. In the past I have been diagnosed with anaemia (which causes the late period and general tiredness) but I've been very careful about my iron levels lately and from what I have read about it, anaemia doesn't come with my other symptons. I have also had an operation when I was 16 for hydronephrosis of the left side which might account for the pains in my left side but I can't explain why it's in the abdomen and not the flank. And everything I have read about the breast veins either mentions breast cancer, pregnancy or cause by breast enlargement from the pill (which I am not on).

Can anyone shed some light on what might be happening with my body? I do have an appt with my GP but until that day comes, my mind is still going to be thinking and thinking...

Any and all help and advice is appreciated :-)

Re: Pregnancy Symptoms but Negative Result...

It's possible you ARE pregnant. In the first couple weeks, you can get a "false negative", where there isn't enough HGH in your bloodstream to show in a test yet.

The doctor can do a more sensitive blood test, or you can do another urine test in a few days.

Or, your symptoms might be caused by something other than pregnancy.
