could i be pregnant ?!

To make this as short as possible, my period is supposed to be coming today or tomorrow (i always have a 28 day cycle). However, I had protected sex a week ago & after about 3 days I had these symptoms :

-lower stomach cramps like period was about to come ( this usually happens a week before my period ) .
-lower back pains
-no sore breasts yet .
-uterus/abdomen hurted a bit
these all kind of sounded like implantation cramps? but i wasn't sure.

then about 3 days ago , i started to get really sick like i had the flu. i had a fever over 99 degrees , was hot all over my body , my body ached (arms & legs especially ), & now i have a sore throat as well as light headness when i stand up. i still have lower stomach cramps & the opening of my vagina seems to be more higher (it's usually like that when my period is about to come sorry tmi ! ) & i'm having feelings of watery CM come out . is this a sign of my period coming ?! & i just recently started to have poking sensations in my breasts . i still have lower stomach period-like cramps & ab/uterus pains that come & go .

on a side note , i took two morning after pills within the last two months . i bled exactly a week after both times so i thought it would be ok.

today , i took an urine test with my first urine & it came out negative . was it too early to take one since it's a couple of days before my period (but it would be exactly 28 days since my last one today) & too soon after having sex ?
my questions are : could the symptoms i described be more early pregnancy symptoms (or would they be too early to tell ) or more on the period signs ? could taking the morning after pill two times affect my period this month ? will it come on time or will it come later ? i'm leaving the country next wednesday & i was thinking about taking a blood test tomorrow because i won' t have any other time of the week to take it since i'll be busy. would taking a blood test tomorrow (that'll be 9 days after sex) be too early? i wish i could get some help !

Thank you for the quick response. It's the next day, & I still woke up with no period :(. I think I'm heading to the doctors for a blood test today. It won't be too early, right?

Also, my last "period" (after plan b) was on July 13. When would I have ovulated? Due to taking plan b two times in such a short period of time, I'm losing track of my fertility/ovulation days :/.

This morning, I woke up really cold. I still had a really bad sore throat & the right side of my abdomen is still hurting :( Today would be exactly 28 days after my last period. SIGH !!

Hi ek49

Thanks for your question and welcome!

While we cannot say if one is pregnant or not, it does sound like your symptoms are more PMS related, than pregnancy, especially since your pregnancy test was negative - they are accurate now up to five days before your expected date. If the sex you had a week ago was protected, as you said, then I think you should be expecting your period in the next day or two!

If you want peace of mind, by all means get a blood test, they can give you the results pretty quickly, so you can take your trip with peace of mind.

Our best to you and please keep us updated!
