Virgin, but experiencing all pregnancy symptoms?

Hello. This is a bit embarrasing, but I'm really worried and I don't have anyone to ask help from, so here it goes..
I've been experiencing pretty much all early pregnancy symptoms lately - weight gain, enlarged breasts, heartburn, nausea, tender breasts, darkened aerolas, fatigue, changes in period, and on top of that my stomach seems to get bigger and bigger and it generally feels strange and kind of off.
I've taken two home pregnancy test so far and they were both negative, but I've heard that home tests aren't exactly accurate. What got me worried in the first place is that I stayed over at someone's house about 5 weeks ago. I was on the 4th day of my period at that time. When I woke up there was some blood on the blanket which I thought was strange because there wasn't much blood on the pad, not to mention I don't get much blood during the night since I'm not moving around. This sort of made me suspicious and when I started experiencing symptoms a few weeks later, I became quite convinced that I was sexually assaulted in my sleep. Is that possible? I wasn't under the influence of alcohol or drugs, if that makes any difference.
Is there a possibility I might be pregnant or am I being paranoid?

It is, but usually if a female is sexually assaulted in her sleep it makes her up. I have been once long ago and I know it definitely woke me up.

Symptoms DO NOT mean pregnancy. What you've described are the very stereotypical symptoms of pregnancy. There are a few things that make it even more doubtful. If you were sexually assaulted during your period, ovulation usually doesn't take place then. Without ovulation pregnancy can't occur. You also wouldn't notice weight gain (in the first trimester a female only gains maybe 5 pounds max, and most don't even get that much) and your stomach wouldn't get "bigger and bigger". There's nothing there to cause a belly. Not this early.

I'm not sure who said that pregnancy tests aren't exactly accurate, but they're wrong. Tests when taken correctly are 99% accurate. IF you were feeling anything due to pregnancy, the test would show up positive. See a doctor if you still have your doubts.

Thank you for calming my mind! I still have doubts, but your response definitely helped. May I ask, if it's not due to pregnancy, what could it be? Could it be my mind faking the symptoms?

It could be due to any dozens of things. Paranoia, pseudopregnancy, hormonal imbalance, (depending on your age) puberty, menopause, or just changes as we age.

hi, even if u had sex at the time, the chances of pregnancy during your period are super super slim
do u have regular periods and for how long
what is age, height and weight
as to pg tests not working; that is true in the first 25 days but after that they work really well and a dollar store one is fine so get a few but at 5 weeks, THEY WORK FINE and if they say negative then u r not pg unless u r the 1 in 20,000 and that seems unlikely
also your subconscious can be extremely powerful; for instance it can set u into excruciating pain in a couple seconds by restricting blood flow and oxygen to any part of the body.
. . I seems u may have some emotions that u r not dealing with so here is a thought;
go into your private place and have a conversation with your sub conscience and speak out loud of the things that bother u BUT the things u also ignore, sweep under the rug or just tuff-it-out. NOW U DO NOT NEED ANY RESOLUTION nor answers and I know it sounds strange but give it a try and u may be amazed at the results.
. . . good luck

ohcalcutagirl, I just turned eighteen last month, I'm about 5'3 and 123 pounds. I've never skipped a period and the flow has almost always been on the heavy side. They always last for 7 days, but in terms of my cycle, it can be anywhere between 24 days to 40 days. Usually it's around 32 days, though.

i am 14 and going through the same. thing. ive had a bf. and we've only done oral. but i feel rly pregnant. i think it's in my mind, should i buy a test to make sure?

You can buy an accurate test at the Dollar Store. However, the only reason you would need a test is to put your mind at ease. You are not pregnant from oral sex. Take care!
