Answer
Hi, M.

Unfortunately, depending on when you took those three tests, it could've been too early to detect pregnancy. While the symptoms you described are certainly common in pregnancy, it would be a pretty unusual to be experiencing all of them in the first three weeks. I'm afraid the only thing you can really do in this case is to wait and see if your period comes. If it's late, and you haven't started bleeding by the 8th or 9th, then you test. Until then try to eat healthfully, get restful sleep, and try not to freak out (I know, that's hard advice).

Good luck,

Julia

Experience

I have a degree in Psychology and am working towards my Masters of Public Health. Both of these fields require an understanding of adolescent development, health behavior and health education. I am invested deeply in ensuring that teens have access to practical, fact-based information. To provide this I stay current by reviewing peer-reviewed literature, health trends and statistics, and the work of activists in the field of pregnancy, sex education, mental health and general well being.
