pregnant? confused?

i am a week late. i was on the pill just for last year to try regulate my periods more aswas always quite irregular. i stopped taking it in march this year. for the last week i have been experiencing dizziness, a bit of nausea, am extremely tired on some days and much more period cramps than usual. my breasts also feel a bit swollen but not tender like they usually do around the time of my period. I have tried 3 home pregnancy tests which have all said im not pregnant but am feeling like i am. I also recently went to a malaria area. could these be malara symptoms rather? i am not sick or have any fever.

I suggest you attend your GP who can do a Beta HCG on your blood(pregnancy hormon level which is definitive). Your symptoms may very well be because you have contracted either malaira or some other infection on your travels; this your GP can help you with to screen you as well.
