Default I'm confused? HELP?

My menstrual cycle ended on July 16th, and I haven't had it this month so far. I have seen a increase of cervical Mucus lately. On Aug 22nd, I went to my OBGYN for a follow up, and he did a pregnancy test. However, the test came back negative.I've noticed for the past week that my breast have been itching and have been experiencing some cramping. Is it possible that I am pregnant and it was too early? I am really confused.

What kind of pregnancy test did your doctor do: urine test, qualitative blood test (yes/no), or quantitative blood test (beta hCG)? If it was a urine test, it's possible (though fairly unlikely) it was a false negative. If it was a blood test, the likelihood of it being incorrect is low if the timing was correct (and it would seem, based on what you report that the dates would be good for accurate blood testing).

Have you retested at home?

If the last day of your cycle was July 16, then the first day of your cycle was somewhere between July 9-12 and an average-cycling woman could expect to have another period starting around Aug. 9-14. So it was logical that your OB would do a pregnancy test.

What did your OB say would be the next step?

They told me that If I don't get to come back in. It was a urine test. I haven't tested at home yet. If I dont get it by next week, Ill be calling the doctors office to schedule a blood test.

I'm sad to say that I took a test and it came back negative. I think I will be calling to doctors office on Monday to find out where to go from here.
