Well for a week now my lower back really hurts it feels like I'm going to start my period. But I don't start and I'm not supposed to start for other week. I have taken many pregnancy all negative so I don't know what is going on

Hi Anon,

Thanks for your ASK. If you are suppose to start your period in another week, you might have tested too early. Back pain is not usually a sign of pregnancy, especially so early on. Lower back pain can be due to an injury or trauma to the lower back. Also light cramping can be experienced during PMS, which usually occurs up to two weeks prior to your period. Just wait a few more days until your period is due, if you choose to retake a home pregnancy test. To have a more accurate reading. Hope this has helped?
