Am i pregnant?

I am three weeks late on my period, i took a hpt, and the doctor did a urine test. both came back negative but i still haven't started my period. My breasts have become increasingly sore even if my bra rubs the wrong way on them. i feel like i have a constant gas build up and my back aches as well as frequent urination. could i still be pregnant even though the doctors urine pregnancy test was negative?

  • My mom said not to worry about anything because "doctors always know best" would it be okay to take another hpt? if so how accurate would it be?

  • A urine test could be always be wrong but the blood test never is and it detects pregnancy hormones way before so go ask for a blood test. You seem to have alot of pregnancy symptoms.

  • Call your dr and ask for a blood test.. sometimes at the beginnig the pregnancy hormone level is low and may not be picked up on a urine test, but like the previous poster said it shows up sooner on a blood test.
