Pregnancy tests negative

Patient

Q: 1 week late, negative pregnancy test. Can visibly see uterus and producing clear colostrum. Not sure what the next step would be since I have not had a positive pregnancy test.

Symptoms:  Sore breasts, slight cramping, colostrum
Doctor

A:   Hi,
Thanks for the query.

I understand your concern.
Better to go for the blood test for pregnancy or ultrasound, which can give more accurate results compared with an urine test.
If these investigations also give negative results, the possibility of pregnancy is less.
In that case, check for serum prolactin levels once as hyperprolactinemia can lead to irregular periods and milk secretion from breasts.

Hope this helps.
Take care
