Am I pregnant?

Postby Newlife18 » Mon Jul 30, 2018 3:42 pm

I'm age 26 . I normally have a 28-30 day cycle. I had unprotected sex twice on the 6th day of my period. I think I ovulated on day 14 as I had my usual stabbing pain in my side. Since I ovulated I have had period like cramps in my lower abdomen. They have been there with 2 weeks which is very unusual for me. They are mild not very painful. Since day 14 I have bad bloating and constipation and it has worsened considerably today on day 26. I have never felt bloated like this before. I think I might be pregnant so I did a clear blue early response rest on day 23 and it was a bfn. I did another boots early response one today(day 26) and it was bfn again. I think I'll wait to see if I miss my period to try and test again. Does anyone have any thoughts on why I might be feeling this way? Has this happened anyone else?

Hi Newlife18,

I had similar symptoms before and I googled it just to eased my mind. Usually when you have sex during your period, you have a very low chance of getting pregnant. Since you did it towards the end of your cycle, there is a possibility of pregnancy. Sometimes bloating can be due to hormones. Have your change your daily activities? Sometimes exercise and change in diet could cause bloating too. If clear blue shows up negative, I wouldn't be too worried. Maybe you can try other test kits? If you're still worried and don't trust clear blue, you can try other pregnancy test kits like first response. Here are some links where you can buy test kits.,
Hope this helps. Best of luck!
