Not sure where to post this question about pregnancy and periods.

Im new to this site and am not sure where is best place to post this but i have a question. I had my period on the 17th july so nearly 2 weeks ago and it lasted 5 days, the follwoing week i had unprotected sex a number of times with my boyfriend but realised even though i started my pill again that i had missed a day or two *stupidly* The past 3 or 4 days my breasts have felt very sore, kinda swollen and at some stages through the day and night have what i would describe as burning sensation along with the pain in my breast thats been causing me to feel very nauseous. I took 2 pregnancy tests yesterday even though it had only been a week or so since i had unprotected sex and they both said negative yesterday. Then today i started bleeding again and my boobs hurt a huge amount and i feel tired alot. Could i possibly be pregnant in that short time frame along with negative tests and bleeding?

According to that info you had unprotected sex between cylce day 5 & 11. If you have a perfectly typical cycle then you would normally ovulate on cycle day 12 and you would've been most fertile 3-4 days prior to that. Because today is only cycle day 15 (and possibly only 3 days post ovulation) the pregnancy tests won't be able to detect a pregnancy even if you are pregnant.

Most pregnancy tests only register positive around 10 days post ovulation or about 1 week before your next period.

Are you bleeding like your normal period? Or is it just a little bit of spotting?

There's always a chance that you get pregnant when having unprotected sex and it only takes the right moment. I would suggest you wait a week and test again.

Unfortunately you have to wait to find out. It is possible that your missed pills are also causing some of your symptoms.

Good luck.

No its not like a regular period, it only lasted maybe a day day and half and wasnt heavy in any way shape or form. Today i have just felt terribly sick all day more so then the past few days. So may wait the week or so you said and try a test or see doc.

I would definitely wait another week to test and then post it on the Do You See A Line board for some help interpreting the results.

Good Luck. I hope you get whichever result you're hoping for.

Keep us posted.
