    Missed a period and presumed pregnant but got period the next 2-3 months
    An_255575 posted:
    My girlfriend and I pullout, so when she missed her period in November we assumed we may be expecting a baby. My girlfriend even showed symptoms:Nausea, head aches, tender breast. So by the end of the first month we were almost positive she was pregnant. The Clinic showed negative result with urine test. We read it could take a while longer for her hormones to kick in so she can pass a pregnancy test. My Girlfriend got her period the next month and the next month after that . They were both similar to her average period in cramps and in length of time. We heard and read some bleeding was normal. But now she got her period again but is presumably 3 months into development I think. We need to make sense of this all. She can't pass a pregnancy test nearly 3 months into the pregnancy (we have tried several times)and we are worried about the baby, or wondering if there is one there.

    I don't understand why she "can't pass a pregnancy test"?

    FYI, nausea, headaches and tender breasts are also signs of PMS. It's possible you tested too early. Once a period has been missed you can test.

    It's sounds as if there was a month when she just didn't ovulate (it happens to most of us at least once in our lives) but that she got the PMS symptoms. Honestly, it doesn't sound as if she's pregnant but why not go to see the doctor and ask for a blood test if that would set your minds at rest?
