Can I trust my pregnancy test?

Hi, I had anal sex on 7th January which was day 7 of my cycle, and my boyfriend also fingered me. Having regular cycle of 27 days, I was cramping on 12th which is a sure sign of ovulation. I was expecting my period on 26/27/28th of January but it came earlier on 23rd January. It was also lighter than usual. On the first day was very light, pinkish blood came out but on the 2nd 3rd and 4th it came a bit heavier (still lighter than usual) and bright red like normal periods with a few clots here and the once in a while. On the 5th day it cleared off with brown spotting as usual. I did a pregnancy test on 31st Jan in the morning, came negative and I have done another one this morning, also negative. I have no symptoms of pregnancy at all. Can I trust the tests? Did I do them too early? The doctor said weight gain may have caused hormonal imbalance bcs I gained weight over December. Should I be worried, because I am very stressed. Also, I am not having any discharge at all. It's very dry down there, very normal. Please help

Hi Soni!

You cannot get pregnant from anal sex, you have to have vaginal sex. Sperm doesn't run out of the anus and down to the vagina to impregnate.

You've had your period, it doesn't matter what kind of a period it was and your tests are negative, I'm not sure why you think you're pregnant.
