Am I imaging things???

So I am 20 years old. I've never been on birth control and my boyfriend and I use the "pull out" method. Not smart I know, don't lecture me. I usually have pretty regular periods that are right on time. They always last the full 7 days and not a day less. Well, I got the flu and the day I got sick was also the day that I got my "period". It only lasted 2 days and was very light. Every day since then for about 2 weeks now, I have been throwing up alot. I feel very sick randomly throughout the day and sometimes certain smells make me queasy. I also got a yeast infection.'I've never had one before and it was very uncomfortable. I'm tired, have bad headaches, and I have lower back pain. My mom told me that I had every single symptom that she had when she was pregnant with me. However, I took a home pregnancy test and it came out negative. I need to know if I really might be pregnant or if it's all a coincidence and in my head. I looked up my symptoms and they could also be signs of a kidney infection. I don't feel anything wrong with my kidneys but im not sure. I have a doctors appointment but I'm going crazy waiting. Any thoughts on what it could be other then pregnancy?

Hi there, I've just been looking at signs of pregnancy as I am currently trying and it listed most of those things therefore I am quite shocked that the pregnancy test come out neg, when did you do the test? Could of been too early maybe...

Also have you got any allergies or anything, maybe eating something that you shouldn't be?

Sorry I can't be of more help, I'm kinda shooting in the dark, hopefully the doctor will get to the bottom of it

Take Care

Being sick could be throwing off your cycle, which could be why your period was so light. I was also wondering if it could be your gall bladder:

When is your appointment with your doctor?
