Doctor

A:   Thank you for your question. It is possible that you could be pregnant even though you had a negative pregnancy test last week. We would recommend that you see a physician as soon as possible and conduct a pregnancy test with them in order to determine whether this may be so. Furthermore, your cramps and discharge could possible be due to another issue like an infection from an STI or an abnormal menstrual period. Please see your physician as soon as possible to be thoroughly examined and have the appropriate testing done to determine the cause of your illness.
