Is there any chance that I'm pregnant?

22 y/o - I am on the combined pill and always use a condom. I take the pill every day at the same time and have not missed any this month. However, a few weeks ago I took two OPKs - one looked positive, the other was negative, so I didn't know what to make of it. Since I used two types of contraception and shouldn't have been ovulating, I had sex with my partner anyway.

Now my period is a few days late (my periods are usually like clockwork on the pill) so I'm nervous something has gone wrong and I potentially could be pregnant.

I know this sounds a little extreme but I have problems with OCD and hypochondria and it means that I quite often have paranoid reactions in terms of illness/changes to my body. Obviously this is negatively impacting my sex life and my mental health, because I worry that even using all sorts of contraceptives I'll get pregnant. I've taken two pregnancy tests (negative) but I'm worried it's still too early to tell properly.

If anything I'm looking for reassurance that this is okay or if there is some other reason my period is late or that the OPK was/looked positive.

Thank you!

I would take one more just to see. Sometimes evap lines happen after the allotted time frame of home pregnancy test. But typically false positives don’t happen
