I'm 20,and my boyfriend is 23,and this may be stupid,but we're trying to have a baby.

We're very responsible,and put together.

Well,we had sex for a week straight,and sporadically throughout the month.

Well,three days before my period,I went to the doctor,and had a urine test done,and the doctor said it was negative.

I've had all,and every symptom(especially the heightened sense of smell.I could smell a trash can at the park with a stuffed up nose when two other people in our social circle could not.),so I want to know now.

So,if anyone can help me,that would be great.

Sometimes your mind can actually make you think that you are pregnant b'cuhs you want be. I read a study on how your mind can practically convince your body of anything. But, it usually takes up to 2 weeks. That's how long I wait before I get tested. & love, they tested POSITIVE everytime. Now Imma' happy Mama to 5 kiddo's. =) ! Good Luck to you & your boyfriend. Blessings.

I certainly hope no one tells you that you are wrong for wanting a child.. They are a blessing, some are unworthy. I will tell you though, don't breed em if you can't feed them and breast is best. In my experience, Some can tell 5 days after missed cycle and some after 2 weeks. Either way, good luck, God Bess

Bright yellow pee indicates dehydration, nothing to do with pregnancy. Or it could go yellow if you have been taking a lot of vitamins.

This is very complex. Every woman is different in the amount of HCG (pregnancy hormone) they have when pregnant. An early result test, depending on the brand, can detect pregnancy as low as 20 mIU. Some women get that level of HCG early on, but others like myself dont until after a missed period or later.

I got a faint positive line 4 days before my period was due. That had been the first time we tried though, so that is why I was testing so early. Most aren't positive 'til a woman misses her period.

Most OTC pregnancy tests say "up to X days before your missed period". Heightened smell isn't the only "symptom" so evaluate if you have any of the others as well. You say you've had "all", so if you still think so, go back to the doctor and ask for a BLOOD test - the hormones that increase during pregnancy are more detectable in smaller "doses" so to speak, in blood rather than urine.

My girlfriends first daughter didn't show up on a test till she was 3 months pregnant. It all depends on how much hormones you are producing are in your body..

Wait a few more days and take another test. If it still says negative, ask the doctor for a blood test.

If its before a missed period its usually early to tell since you wouldnt have alot of the hormone in your system yet(unless it were a multiple birth lol). Id wait til after the missed pd then test.

It depends on what test you take. Some are early detection and can be taken up to 7 days before your period is due. Check the tests and see how early they say they can detect.
