Can a pregnancy test five months after sexual contact be wrong

if I had gotten pregnant from sexual activity that took place in mid March maybe April would a pregnancy test be accurate? I have taken several over the past few months since then and they have all been negative including one this morning. I have also had all regular periods since the and they have bed.n very heavy like eight days and frequent pad and tampon changes but I have gained some weight lately and my boobs have been hurting in a way that feels like very sharp stabbing pains which I have never felt before and I have had a very strong metallic taste in my mouth for two weeks along with daily headaches for a couple of months. If I were four or five months pregnant right now would a pregnancy test (first response brand) taken with first morning urine give me a reliable result? I have read that after a couple months of pregnancy at home urine tests show false negatives because there is too much hcg levels but that doesn't make sense to me but I am believing it because I am so scared of being pregnant. We didn't even have sex he only fingered me but he was "adjusting himself" a lot under his boxer shorts so I'm afraid he may have had pre ejaculate or semen on his fingers when he put them in me. I am just terrified. Regardless of risk, can I rely on my negative tests and move on with my life?

Hi Anon!

Yes, you need to reply on your tests and move on. Your issue is not pregnancy, it's anxiety. You can let this go.

If you continue to feel anxiety, talk to your doctor.
