Is it normal to have most of the early pregnancy symptoms and still not be pregnant?

My last cycle was August 24th or 26th but lasted on 3 days. The early pregnancy symptoms started like the first week of September. My breast were sore a few days them stopped but started back, every morning I get up around 4 am and I feel nauseous but never vomited. All of my PT were negative and this week here September 16th I start bleeding like my regular cycle but it stopped. This has never happened before and after bleeding I had some white discharge in my panties. My partner and I did have unprotected sex after the bleeding went completely away and it came back heavy the next day.

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community and thank you for reaching out to us with your concern.

So, within a week after the end of your last period, you started experiencing breast tenderness. You awake with nausea but no vomiting. And you had vaginal bleeding for only one day, and then again for one day.

How long are your monthly menstrual cycles? Have you had unprotected sex since the end of your last period?

I think you tested too early. Early result pregnancy tests can be used 5 days before your expected period. Otherwise, you wait until your period is late by at least seven days before testing. Blood and urine pregnancy tests detect levels of hCG. This hormone is only produced during pregnancy. The hormone cannot be detected until the fertilized egg has implanted, which take between six to 10 days.

If retesting still gives you a negative result, give your gynecologist a call.
