I have had 10 negative HPTs can i still be pregnant?

Patient

Q: I am on day 43 of my menstrual cycle, the longest my cycle has been before was 38 days, is it possible to have 10 negative HPTs and still be pregnant?

Symptoms:  Sore nipples, mild cramping , clear cervical mucus
Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query
HPT tests are reliable, that too when done after missing the cycles. It is not possible for so many tests to go wrong and give a negative value, you may wish to reconfirm with a beta hCG blood test which is more specific.The symptoms you have described could mostly be due to premenstrual syndrome, indicative of a soon approaching cycle. Kindly consult a gynecologist in case you do not resume your cycle in weeks time
Hope this helped
Regards
