My husband and I have been trying to conceive for almost one year exactly. For six months, I have not had a period. For the first two months, I thought it was simply stress, so I didn't attempt to go to the doctor. In the third month, my husband lost his job, as well as our insurance. I am now vomiting daily, I have constant cramps - no bleeding - and my boobs are getting larger every other week. I've taken two tests and they all come back negative.. Since I am a college student, I qualify for free healthcare from the state. When I applied, I was turned down.. The woman informed me, the area is only allotted a certain amount of money for free healthcare. Because of that, they cannot hand it out to every college student, only those that are pregnant or have a child. When I explained that was what I needed was a blood test, since all of the home tests were negative she laughed and said I wasn't getting a chance at healthcare til I could prove I was pregnant.. Maybe it's just nerves, I though it was, but why all of the other symptoms also? Has anyone had any cases like this before? Please, PLEASE help.
Well, depending on what state you live in, there are other kids of clinics. In michigan there are county health centers, and also planned parenthood helps too. I would check out those places. It could be stress, but I can't really emagine where the over the counter tests would still say negative even 6 months in. I hope I've helped in some way. Hope you are less stressed soon.
Sometimes we experience pre menstrual syndrome that is so close to the symptoms of pregnancy. Such symptoms includes mood swings, breast tenderness, and unusual cravings. All of these are brought about by the changes in our female hormones.

Sorry you've been having troubles. I personally haven't had any of these symptoms, so not of much help in that area. Over the counter tests should show up as positive after a short time-frame. You could have other health issues going on that need checked.
Just a suggestion for help - crisis pregnant centers generally have a ton of resources, including items for your baby after you've had your baby. In my town the crisis pregnancy center even has a 3-D ultrasound, which they use free of charge. Tons and tons of resources, try looking one up in your area.
Well, that woman you spoke with was a.) rude b.) inconsiderate and c.) unprofessional. How frustrating when you are truly seeking some medical attention/assistance. I, too, have had many typical pregnancy symptoms, but negative pregnancy tests. Frustrating! It is unfortunate that the nearest planned parenthood / pregnancy center is 3 hours away. Could you maybe call them and see what options they suggest?
