im 21 and my bf and i are ttc last month i followed the ovulation cycle and did the bd during my most fertile days and the day of and the next couple of days. i had some symptoms of pregnancy but then i got what i thought to be my period(it was very unusual for me ). i continue to have the symptoms the cramping the headaches, the dizzy spells, and that feeling of i am. took several hpt's and got what looked like a faint positive so i finally went and got a digi it was negative. then this month i was early but it was very very strange i spotted the start and the next day it was a ligt flow then the next and last day it went away, i never have had a short cycle except when i took the morning after pill quite some time ago( periods have become regular until now). ive gained some weight but not enough to change clothing size but just to where my clothes fit a little snugger. took a nother hpt test and was again negative. but here's the kicker that feeling hasnt gone away and my bf even has it to. when i was pregnant with my son i got pregnant on my period and had a period so i guess my question is ...is this going to be my pregnncy trend if i am pregnant. its important for me to know for absolutly sure because i get diabeties when im pregnant so the sooner the better. thanks.

A pregnancy test will pick up the HCG hormone up to 5 days before even missing your period. If you've been having these irregular periods for two months--a pregnancy test would indicate positive by now. If you've never had any of these symptoms and you want to make sure that nothing is wrong, you can go to your doctor and have a blood test done.

Wishing you good health,

is it still possible, i have heard of being pregnant and the hcg concentration not being high enough to be visible on a hpt?

Hi Jammie7597,

If you have a negative HPT, then you are not pregnant. However, the dizzy spells are concerning, if you are still having them then it's best to go see your doctor to determine what could be the cause. Sometimes, we have miscarriages without even realizing that we were pregnant to begin with-- it's extremely common and usually your period will resume to normal afterwards. But, like I said, just to be sure-- if you're still having these symptoms, go see your doctor and get 100% reassurance that everything is fine.

Please keep us updated,
