Doctor

A:   Hello,
If you have missed your periods on 10th December and your pregnancy test is negative then it is sure that you are not pregnant. However ideally a urine pregnancy test is done on the 7th day post missed period with the first early morning urine sample to have sensitive results. You may choose to repeat the test after few days and if negative, then choose to wait for your menses to start naturally.
The symptoms you are experiencing could well be premenstrual symptoms and indicate likely onset of menses soon.
I hope i have answered your query in detail,
wishing you good health,
regards
