Are you trying to get pregnant? Were you on any type of birth control medication? If fertilization did occur, it may be too early for a home pregnancy test to detect any hCG in your urine. Your symptoms could indicate that you are pregnant, but they also could be indicative of other things. I’d recommend taking another pregnancy test this Saturday and, if that one was negative, taking another one the following Saturday.
