I have all the symptoms of pregnancy, but the pregnancy test came back negative. Can I still be pregnant?

Patient : Since January my fiance and i have been having unprotected sex and recently we decided we're going to begin trying for a baby. **The start of my last period was February 15th** For the last two weeks or so I've been having many symptoms of pregnancy such as: -weight gain -abdominal pain/slight cramping -peeing more often than usual -mood swings -headaches/migrains -back pain, mostly upper and mid back -some dizziness -very tired, usually multiple naps a day -craving certain foods -always hungry -some food aversions -white mucus discharge last couple days -tender breasts -more full breasts -extremely sensitive breasts -areolas bigger and slightly darker All of these signs were great but after multiple negative pregnancy tests it's frustrating. This morning then I started vaginal bleeding. at first it was pretty heavy and dark/bright red and a bit sticky. later in the afternoon is started becoming lighter and tinted a light brown and extremely watery. What could all of this mean? i'm scared it could mean a miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy. or that I'm not pregnant, but if that's the case then why do I have so many signs!

Doctor :   Thank you for your query. The best option for you would be to go to the doctor who will do a blood test called as &be ta;hCG to see if you are pregnant, she will also do a scan to see if there is by chance an ectopic pregnancy or intrauterine pregnancy, if the blood test is positive for pregnancy, base d on which appropriate treatment can be started off. If the blood test is negative for pregnancy then this may be your period. Hope that answers your query. Have a good day
