Is it possible i could still be pregnant?
An_246771 posted:
For the past week i have been feeling sick. Nauseated, cramps, head aches, excessive sleeping, fatigue, ovary pain, mood swings, odd bowel movements, and vaginal discharge in my urine.

I have been on the same birth control for years.

I also took a store bought pregnancy test and it came up negative.

Is it still possible i might be pregnant?
If not, what could this be?

Have you missed your period? Are you due to start soon? Anytime you have unprotected sex there is always a risk of getting pregnant.

That being said, sometimes PMS symptoms look like pregnancy symptoms, especially when we are worried about being pregnant.

If your period is a few days late, I'd say give it a couple more days and test again. If it still says negative, I would schedule an appointment with your doctor to rule it out for sure and make sure nothing else is wrong.
