Feel eight weeks pregnant, negative test, what should I do?
Patient : My body has been changing a lot in the past month or so, and I haven't had my period. Every time I experience a new bizarre symptom I've never felt before, I look it up online and the first thing I find is "pregnancy symptoms". I've taken a lot of home pregnancy tests, and they've all come back negative. I've contacted my doctor, but they won't see me unless I've had a positive pregnancy test. I think I would be about 8 weeks pregnant. There are a lot of postings online about women who are pregnant but get negative tests, but I can't tell how common this really is. What is the probability that I could be pregnant? If I'm not, what else could cause these symptoms (sore and growing breasts, nausea, indigestion, thick white discharge, occasional cramps...)? Should I go to see my doctor? If so, what tests should I ask for, and how can I convince them to see me? Thank you! This is all new for me and I'm very confused.
