ask: 19 days late, negative pregnancy tests - how common is this - women to have low HCG?

I know the questions have been over-asked but I really need some advice. My last period was 5th Jan and I had unprotected sex on 12th Jan (Day 8th). I am now 19 days late and no sign of my period. My periods are typically 26-30 days and I am very regular - except for the last one which was a week late and only lasted 3-4 days (normally it's 5-6).

Symptoms-wise, I noticed extra discharge few days after period was due and I felt mildly dizzy a few times. Have been waking up a few times a night to pee. Nipples were sore for half a day last week, when I was ten days late. Was at a car showroom with my bf last weekend and felt nauseated by the smell of new leather.

Thing is, I've tested 4 times and it's all negative (last test was today). Am I stressed? Well, kinda, but not anymore than I usually am. Wondering if it's common for some women to just not register enough HCG to get a positive test. Some background: I was pregnant about 7 years ago and I only picked it up after I was 2 months plus. Aborted at 3 months :(

A part of me really hopes I'm pregnant and I keep thinking about it. Please help.

Hi there, hoping for some advice! My period is 2 weeks late today and I've done 3 pregnancy tests (2 first response and 1 clear blue digital) and all negative, last one was this morning! I have had some period pains, last night was quite bad so thought it would have arrived overnight but nothing this morning....hence the 3rd test! Can I still be pregnant? I do have endometriosis but have never experienced late periods.....I'm very regular in general! I had a slight bit of dizziness over the weekend but that's really it in terms of symptoms.
Just a bit confused :(

Hi if any one can help I'm in the same position. I am now 18 days late for my period when I am usually very regular maybe a day or two late, ive been feeling very sick on and off, my boobs have grown noticeably, ive been dizzy and had really bad heartburn ever since the maybe conception. I've done several tests over the weeks, some are blank, some negative and I've had some with lines in the positive are but I don't know what to trust. I just need to know if I am pregnant or if my mind is playing tricks on me.
Thanks x

I know people barely reply on these things but did you ever get your period? i am going through the exact same thing and its driving me crazy... I am 9 days late. Going to see the doctors on wednesday, I'm just curious if yours ever came, or if you ever got an explanation on what was going on!
