I am having a few symptoms... I am afraid i may be pregnant (though i took a urine test and it came up negative)
but I want to see if there could be other reasons for all of my symptoms?

Ive been getting headaches all the time (when normally i never do)
Hot and cold flashes
Backaches
Ive been hungry but nothing sounds good
Nausea on and off throughout the day
Ive been getting tired very early (compared to usual)
I missed my period, and just starting today ive had slight cramping in my lower stomach.

Thanks,
Samantha

  • You can still be pregnant, the only way to really tell is to go to the doctor and get blood work. But it does sound like you can be pregnant.Esp. if you have having unprotected sex.-N

  • thanks for ur reply.... yeah im working on getting to planned parenthood to get a blood test done, but i barely have any time off of work right now so it may be a while before i get to find out. Still, im going to take another urine test very soon...Is it better to take it first thing in the morning or does it matter?-Samantha

  • You could be pregnant even though the test was negative. When I was pregnant with my daughter the first test I took came back negative. Even though it can happen, however, it's not very likely. You could also have a thyroid problem that could cause those symptoms. You might want to consider having that checked as well.

  • Im getting checked at the doctor tomarrow to see if I am pregnant. If its not pregnancy though, i have no idea what it could be.It cant be the flu because my symptoms have been going on a long time, the chills and the nausea and backaches just started within the last 2 weeks. Every day i wake up thinking its over, but i get up and i still feel the same.My boobs are not swollen, but they are a little tender...Are swollen breasts one of the first symptoms? Does that happen to everyone?The last two or three days i have started getting slight cramping in my lower stomach..I keep expecting my period but it wont come!haha, i obviously know nothing about pregnancy.. but im sure that makes sense being only 18 years old.Thanks,-Samantha

  • If you are not pregnant, get birth control, use a condom and do not have unprotected sex.....have you heard of STS (sexually transmitted diseases) and AIDS? Don't think it can't happen to me....it can, and it does.

  • i had unprotected sex with my boyfriend 2 days after my period and it was my first time. we were at it 4 a while and he said he didnt ejaculate inside me, 10 days after i had cramps and then i spotted a little blood, on the 11th day i had a bit of a nose bleed which is uncommon for me, i also have more discharge than normal, my boobs also feel more tender than usual mostly around the nipples. is it likely i could be pregnant or could it be something else?? it has now been 13 days since intercourse.

    8 Surprising Facts About Cholesterol

    Did you know that one in six US adults has high cholesterol?

  • Yes you very well could be pregnant, all of you who aren't sure. My family has a ton of kids in the family, so i've heard all the gory details of the beginnings of pregnancy. For those of you taking the urine tests, yes you absolutely want to take the test with the first morning urine, it has a stronger dose of the chemical that your body produces when you are pregnant, so that morning urine is most likely to be the strongest, and therefore the most accurate.As for the last posting about having unprotected sex for the first time, even if he says he never ejaculated in you, he can still produce pre-ejaculate at any time of sexual activity, which can make you pregnant. It only takes 1 sperm to create a baby, and in just one drop of a man's ejaculate there are hundreds if not thousands of sperm. If you don't want to live with the life-long consequences of having a baby, wear condoms, get birth control from planned parenthood (it's pretty cheap compared to the cost of raising a baby), and be smart about your sex life.

  • I was due on my period 4 days ago but havent come on and have been havin weird pains for about a week simular to period pains but not exactly the same if you get me. I also have been getting some of the pregnancy syptoms like feeling sick and dizzy and having sore boobs. My friend said I might just be imagining it because I want a baby but I just want to be sure. Should I take a pregnancy test and when should I do it?

There are tons of reasons for women and girls not to get regular periods. For example, women and girls in athletics tend to skip several periods due to low body fat. But after 70 days you would definitely be able to tell. Even 40 years ago, 70 days was enough to detect pregnancy.If you are still experiencing these symptoms, then you need to go to a doctor to find out why.

  • I have been feeling incredibly moody, bloated, and my boobs hurt. Also, my periods are irregular. Could I be pregnant? My bf and I have been fighting a lot and it's mostly because I am extremely moody. My boobs around the nipples hurt and I feel nauseous on and off throughout the day. I get random cravings but then nothing sounds good at all. We have unprotected sex a lot but he "pulls out". Please help me out.
