Hello! My name is***** and I will take the time to answer your question =)

It's possible that you are too early for the test to pick up. Most over the counter tests can pick up a pregnancy hormone level (BHCG) by about 50 or so. This is typically 2 weeks after your last episode of unprotected sex or about 1 week after your missed period. If you have waited the appropriate amount of time and are still getting negative tests but feeling as though you might be pregnant I would recommend getting a blood test done that measures the actual amount of BHCG in your blood. This would be a bit more expensive than the over the counter tests but would give you an absolute answer.

Take care and best of luck! If it does turn out that you are pregnant make sure to establish care with an OBGYN and start those prenatals :)

Would bacterial vaginosis have any kind of turn on the test? i know my ph balance is off alot. and i didnt know if that could alter the way the test read??? i just feel different. I NEVER have heartburn and im getting it... more nauseous than ever, sleepy but cant sleep, just icky.

Bacterial vaginosis should not alter the test results. Although you are correct that it can affect the pH of your vagina, the pregnancy test is designed to pick up the hormone BHCG and should not be affected by pH.

Take care.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
