I’ve taken 2 pregnancy tests that have come back negative…

…but I have a bump starting to form and I have tiredness, boob soreness and growing, and I’m peeing a lot. I don’t know what to do please help.

There can be many symptoms of pregnancy, but those symptoms can be inconclusive. All of the symptoms that you’ve described can be signs of things other than pregnancy (like your period or an infection).

Someone’s period can actually fluctuate based on what’s going on in their life.  This means that stresssicknesschange in physical activity, or even worrying about being pregnant can make a period act differently.

The only way to know for sure it you are pregnant is to take a pregnancy test. If you take a pregnancy test 14 days after unprotected sex, you will receive an accurate result.

If you have taken two negative pregnancy tests since your most recent unprotected sex, trust that result. But you may want to consider seeing a doctor to make sure, and/or to access your other symptoms.
