I've been having cramps but not period, sore nipples, nausea, late period, fatigue, headaches white thin discharge, and so forth. So I took at test three days after my missed period and it came out negative, it's been a week now and it's all the exact same.. Could I still be pregnant?

Hi meganelily,

If you took the test properly, you can trust the results. But you can always take a second one if it will help calm your nerves.

Have you engaged in a behavior that carries the risk of pregnancy?

Hi Meganelily! Welcome to Scarleteen! [Smile]

Unfortunely, there is no way we can tell you if you could be or not pregnant, but if you followed the instructions of the Pregnancy Test and took it after 14 days of the sexual activity, then it's sound to trust the result.

But, if you are not feeling well and you are worried about it, you can always seek the help of a healthcare provider IN person.

Here is more information abour pregnancy tests:

Hope it helps! [Smile]
