Its a bit early to be certain of whether or not she may be pregnant, as the hormonal patterns develop over time. Presumably you both thought pregnancy was a real possibility or you wouldn't have had the tests done so promptly after the breakup. She shouldn't mess with your head or hers, as she DOES NOT KNOW whether or not she is pregnant - she's probably not trying to mess with your head, but feeling very uncertain about what might happen and hpw you and she could deal with it. I would guess the gynae will be suggesting some further tests in the coming days, to clarify the situation. Then maybe sitting down together with a pregnancy counsellor could help you both decide more wisely what to do about it
