Can a uti cause a negative pregnancy result

Hello Dr Amos, i have been TTC for about 5 months now. This month I was so sure we got it right! 4 days after ovulation i started to get cramps. By 7 days post ovulation the got so heavy it woke me up out of my sleep. After that they went back to being mild but 9 days post ovulation, i got some spotting and headaches whenever i stood up. Today, which is 11dpo, i went to the doctor for a pregnancy test and they told me i have a uti and no pregnancy. My question is, can a uti cause these symptoms or a false negative result?

No, a UTI cannot give you a false negative pregnancy test.  But you may have testeds too early as a pregnancy test is usually not positive until after 14 dpo.
