Hi
Expert:  Dr Baker replied 13 days ago.

Are you normally regular? And is it right to assume you have had unprotected sex in the last month?

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
I am normally regular and yes I did
Customer: replied 13 days ago.
I had very bad cramping and spotting on the 15th July
Customer: replied 13 days ago.
Since then I have had pregnancy symptoms but negative tests
Expert:  Dr Baker replied 13 days ago.

Okay, so a pregnancy is certainly likely if you also have any hormonal symptoms of pregnancy such as nausea or breast tenderness.

It can take 2 weeks for a test to be positive though

Customer: replied 13 days ago.
that’s exactly what I have been getting also noticed an increase in urination. Do you recommend to repeat the tests if I still don’t have my period by next week? Or should I consult a doctor
Expert:  Dr Baker replied 13 days ago.
I would do the test weekly, the symptoms can also just be hormonal from a delayed period so your period may come still, it you can still miss a period without a pregnancy.

I would therefore suggest a weekly pregnancy test until your next period.
