Am I pregnant?

On July 20th, 2011,,,, I had unprotected sex 3 times, and he came inside me all three times. It was about 10 days after my period ended. Starting a week and a half ago, I've been tired, my breasts have gotten really sore and my lower back hurts a little. I've taken two pregnancy tests but they were both negative, and they were both taken before my missed period. I have the "I just know" feeling that i'm pregnant. I was just wondering what my chances of being pregnant were....... Can anybody answer this for me please?

Hi!
Most of the pregnancy tests on the market become positive at about the same time the period is missed == so it is definitely possible that you tested too early. In your circumstance, I usually recommend testing weekly until the test is positive or you have your period whichever comes first.  Another option is to see your doctor about a blood test.  While you are there, you can discuss birth control if that is your desire, OR establish care for the pregnancy.
Good luck!

you should go consult a dr or wait a few more weeks and take another one. sometimes its too early to tell on a store bought pregnancy test.

We all make mistakes and it's nobody's place to judge, you asked a question and you have the right for it to be answered, I don't think your pregnant hun but just to be sure wait a couple of weeks and test but because you said you bed 5 days before your period you were probably not ovulating so I think your safe, if you need help finding the right contraception for you go to your family health clinic and they will be happy to help you choose :) good luck Hun :)

No one else has to know Hun you can just head to your closest family planning clinic just look it up in the phone book or ask someone u trust to get u some contraception or u can say u have really bad period pain to a relative and that u need something to help ease the pain and they may take u to a doctor who will prescribe contraceptions to help with it, otherwise u can buy them online Hun, good luck I hope u get some help soon xx

Hi,

I haven't had my period in over 8 weeks, took 5 HPT's which all came out negative, made a doc appt for this coming Monday. Symptoms: veryy tired, fingers swollen, cravings for salad and steak, want to sleep 24/7, not depressed or stressed, feeling butterfly-like movements in my lower abdomen. My LMP was July 29, 2011. Could I be pregnant? I have read thousands of forums where so many women get blood work back w a negative result as well and they all wonder or stress if they are prego and many of them end up being prego w the HCG hormone being very light (which is the reason the HPT's and even blood tests come back neg). Anyways, please help! I have a feeling my new doc I am seeing on Mon. isn't going to be much help and am afraid he won't offer a blood test when I need one most right now since all of the urine tests are coming back neg. I wouldn't mind a baby right now, I have a 2 and 1/2 old son who is my world and his dad and I are still together and I'm graduating w my Bachelor's next year. Please help! I hope I don't have a thyroid problem.. or diabetes :/ kinda nervous n scared..

many women get negative results when they are in actuality pregnant. I knew two girls who didn't know they were preggo until 5th and 8th month of pregnancy bc of a negative result. Also, the hormone to detect pregnancy could very much be too light for you, so you may be pregnant. I am in the same boat as you, if you read my post before yours. Good luck to you. And also I will be updating if I am pregnant when I get my blood test done.

I need help and i can't get any answers, i know Im in the wrong forum but Im desperate. . I have a one year old who i had to have a c-section with because i never dropped and after 3 hours of pushing, she never budged. Long story! I am now 8 weeks pregnant and i don't want another c-section. Do any of you know of a doctor that will perform a vbac in Clearwater,fl.

I had my period on the 26th of this month and had unprotected sex with my boyfriend on the 1st. In addition my cycles are very irregular with periods every alternate months sometimes. Is there a chance that I can get pregnant? And how long does a sperm last when you are in menstruation?

Hcg levels should eventually show up on a test...most tests, even the cheap ones, can detect about 25 ppb...by your 5th week your hcg should be in the thousands...testing too early or doing the test improperly can result in inaccurate readings...if you are more than 3 weeks late and are still getting neg results, go to your Dr. You may be pregnant or there could be another problem...

When u get the preg tst make sure u take it  with the first urine because if u take it during the mk iddle of the day they r not as accurate so the 1st pee is the best answer

If you're atleast 16 you can go to the health department all by yourself without family knowing. The dr. there will treat you like an adult.
