Two missed periods.. Am I pregnant??

I am 20 years old. I have had irregular periods in the past, but this time it's been two months since my last period. My last period was October 14th, and I had intercourse on November 8th. Although alcohol was involved, we did use a condom. However, I have not had my period since then. When I was supposed to get my period in November I developed symptoms such as sore breasts, irritability, and some cramping, but my period never came. Now I have had those symptoms ever since. I took a pregnancy test December 13th (a little over a month after I had sex) and it came back negative. What could be going on with me?

I think there may be two possibilities.

Did you take the home pregnancy test correctly?

Sometimes, you can get a false negative result if:

You either did not dip the test strip well or did not hold it well in your urine stream.

If you let the test sit for too long (after the instructions on the box tell you), the test is invalid. This may cause it to show false negative results.

Stress, hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid gland), excessive exercising and major weight loss can lead to missed periods.

I think you need to be evaluated by your doctor. Blood tests to check for pregnancy and check thyroid function can help determine the cause of your missed periods.
