I had sex for the first time on the 18th April, started feeling different the day after (everyone kept telling me it was too early to tell) but i knew it was deffo pregnant. I was extremely tired, no energy for anything, constant backache, headaches, hungry all the time, bigger and painful breasts and I've had new moles appearing everywhere, along with a full feeling in my lower abdomen, so much so i found it difficult to sleep on my stomach, i started folic acid on the Wednesday which would have been 5 days after sex. I spoke to a pharmacist about when the right time to take a test would be and instead of giving me advice he told me there was only 25% of me being pregnant because it (didn't happen as easily as i thought). On the 3rd may when i was 4 weeks pregnant (Doctors calculations) i took a test in the morning and got a positive, didn't believe it so i took another two and they all came faint positive, by the time it had gotten to evening i had started bleeding and went straight to hospital where they examined me and told me the bleeding was due to pregnancy and all was fine. The bleeding stopped the followed Thursday after i'd bled lightly (no clots) for five days. I took a pregnancy test on the Thursday and got a positive still but the line was a lot clearly than previously which apparently shows higher hormones so everything must have been okay. On Tuesday this week i went back to the doctors and we did another test (it came negative) so she told me i had miscarried but booked me in for a scan on Friday just to be sure. The ultrasound and the internal scan showed nothing which is understandable as i would only be 6 weeks and 3 days and the pregnancy test they took came negative. They said my pulse was quite high though. After i got home from the hospital my doctor called me and said that the hospital had called her to confirm my miscarriage and she said she wanted a urine sample to see if i had an infection. I'm wondering, can an infection cause false negative tests? or am i just deluding myself? My pregnancy symptoms are a lot stronger than they were before i was bleeding, my breasts still ache but a lot more than before, sleeping is still difficult and i'm constantly tired, i know if i had a miscarriage then the hormones would be in my body for a few more weeks but they shouldn't be getting stronger should they? I'm booked in for a blood test on Tuesday and the doctor is calling me tomorrow with my urine results.I feel like i'm going crazy, i'm sure all this isn't in my head, my instincts are telling me i'm still pregnant, it's such a strong gut feeling. Sorry for the ridiculously long post :/

Hi hun, not really got any advice but didn't want to read and run. Sad to say that I think you have probably miscarried, if the tests are negative now. But keep your chin up, and see what the doc says next time x x x x
