Hey i am new here and i am in a situation where i don't know what to think anymore. So, i will start on 5 of decembre when my last period began. My menstrual cycle is not really regular (26-34 days). On 30 december and 2 january i had sex with my boyfriend and i used local contraception. My period was due to come on 3 of january, i had some pms as in cramps and headaches, but it did't show up. On 8 of january i had a small pink discharge and next day i had a brown one, just a line. On 10 something like my period started with red blood. It is unusual because it only show up when i go to bathroom (a bit heavy flow), but just like spotting on my pad. Other symptoms that i have are nausea, bloating, going to the bathroom more often, my breasts are not swollen but they hurt, burping, lowerback pain and a sensation like presure at the bottom of the abdomen. i have to say that i took pregnancy tests on 5, 8 and 11 january. All the simptoms tell me i am pregnant and i feel pregnant but the test were negative. Today i had a transvaginal ultrasound and my doctor said i have a urinari infection and gave me antibiotics and told me to have a HCG blood test tomorrow and also a urine test. My question is if i can be pregnant because i really want to be and i feel like i am.

Hcg value was 1,33 and my doctor said to repeat it on monday.
Is it possible that my ovulation was late?

Hello. Thank you for posting today.

If you had your period as well as negative test results, this indicates you are not pregnant.

hCG Levels can first be detected by a blood test about 11 days after conception and about 12-14 days after conception by a urine test.  An hCG level of less than 5 is negative for pregnancy and a level of more than 25 is positive for pregnancy.  Some women that have hopes of being pregnant will feel as if they are, even when their test results say otherwise. This might be what you are experiencing.  It's good the UTI was detected and treated.

I tested again and hcg was 1.36. Is it ok to not be pregnant and the level to rise?

This result indicates you are not pregnant and is not a significant rise.
