    So, here it is, I have a child, she is four. I was unaware, or more in denial when I found out I was pregnant with her.
    I do not want to have another child anytime soon so I am very careful or very inactive sexually.
    About 6 1/2 weeks ago I decided to let loose a little and had protected sex for the first time in about a year.
    I still got worried and thought, oh man I could still get pregnant.
    Since then however I have had 2 periods. The first one was pretty much on time and normal. The second one was about a week early and yet still normal.
    I decided to take a pregnancy test a couple of weeks ago and it was negative. However, I have had breast pain and sensitivity to smell which is strange. The breast sensitivity seems to come and go for weeks at a time. It's just very strange.
    So, any thoughts from anyone about this? I do not want to be pregnant, trust me. I feel I am a very cautious person about that fact.

    You've had two normal periods so more than likely you are not pregnant. Hormonal changes unrelated to pregnancy can cause the symptoms you are experiencing.

    Thank you, I went ahead and got a blood test done today to see if there was any trace of the hormone, also some other labs because the doctor wanted to see if there was anything related to deficiencies or too much going on in my body.
