Patient

Q: Hello, I have a question so I've been having the symptoms that you get when you are pregnant like feeling nauseous, diarrhea, and feeling bloated but I took a first response test and it gave me a negative but I still have the symptoms. Should I not worry about it because the test came out negative or should I go to my doctor ?

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.com

I understand your concern.
Sometimes the pregnancy tests may need around 2-3 weeks to be positive, if it's been 3 weeks and it shows negative, then it is negative.
The symptoms do match pregnancy, however, could be because of minor gastrointestinal upset too.

Hope this was helpful,
Regards.
