I dont normally cramp before i have my period. I had sex on day 15 of my cycle, but he said he pulled out. I am now spotting and cramping, and its still 6 days before my period is due. I am also having sore breasts, exhaustion,mild constapation, headaches, and frequent urination. Could I be pregnant? I took a test, that said negative, but it is probably still to early, since it was a very cheap test!

Hi, i had sex intercourse with my fiance on 18th June which is 3 days after my period finish. We had unprotected sex but we were careful that time. Now it's already the 17th July and i haven't got my normal period. On the 10th i got a little brownish and normally i will get that during my early stage of getting my period but then it come and go up to this day and now its more like a brownish discharge. I've had tested 4 times yesterday which different brand of the pregnancy test just to be sure and it's all positive. I can't have baby now as i had a tumor removed from my left ovary last year and doctor said it will take max 2 yrs if I'm planning to get baby. I don't know what i should do next. I cant go to my normal doctor as that is our family doctor and my mum will devastated to know if I'm not planning to keep this baby. I'm clueless and i don't know what to do now. Can the pregnancy test be wrong sometimes? Am i really pregnant?

Hi Momagain

It might be a bit too early to test, as you said. Your symptoms are similar to both PMS and pregnancy (as I'm sure you know!) so only time will tell.

It's very unwise to use the pull out method, especially on day 15, which is right in the middle of the average ovulation period. If you don't want to get pregnant, then you must use condoms, or another method. While the pull out method can work for some women, it should never be used on days 10 through 21.

Did you use a dollar store test? They are actually pretty accurate, according to many women but the timing is probably bad. 6 days before your due date (period) is a little too early, even using the best tests. You only have to wait a couple more days before you retest.

Are you ok with being pregnant, if you are?

Will you update us?
