    Hi I am 5 days late I took a pregnancy test the day after I was suppose to have started my period and it came out to be a negative,I've been waking up in the morning with a slight headache and feeling nauseated, and when I have intercourse with my husband it hurts if I am on top, and that has happened to me in the past with my other children.

    You may be pregnant or you may have just not ovulated. Not ovulating is common and will happen to most women at least once during their reproductive years. Also, just because it's never happened to you before doesn't mean it can't/won't.

    I'd wait and see if you miss a second period. If you do and are still getting negative pregnancy test results, see your doctor.
