Am I pregnant?
JDLC1221 posted:
My husband and I had unprotected sex approx. 8 weeks ago right after my period. About 6 days later I had felt what I thought was implantation because I was in terrible abdomen pain (left side) and lower back pain for a good portion of an entire day. Since then we have had unprotected sex, I have had many symptoms of pregnancy and no period. I took about 5 pregnancy tests (some too soon) that were all negative, then one that was positive. Just to be sure I took another one and it came out negative again! Now I am going on 8 weeks without my period, but getting "period" or pregnancy symptoms (no vomiting yet, but nausea, fatigue, irregular bowels, tender breasts, etc.) and NO sign of my period. Could I still be pregnant and still show negative tests? Or am I just getting my hopes up? (by the way - this would be our first child so obviously I don't know what to expect).

This is the wrong board for your question. You should try the "Can I Be Pregnant" board.

If you are unsure then go have a blood test done.

The previous poster is correct - this board is for women who are already pregnant.

No one here can tell you if you are pregnant through an online message board. Only your doctor can tell for sure with perhaps more extensive testing.

I would suggest making an appointment with your gynocologist to find out for sure and rule out any other problems.
