I am 17 years old and a while back in November I posted a question because i wasn't sure of i was pregnant. I was told that I probably wasn't and I took a 2 home tests. the first one i took came out negative but i didn't take it in the morning and i didn't cover it like i was supposed to so it might be false and the second one i took didn't give me an answer. I've been having my period. At least i think I have though now they have been much lighter and now last 3 to 4 days instead of the 5 to 7 of before. Also the cramping hasn't been as bad as before. My breast are bigger now. They do reduce in size for a few days after my period and increase even more just before but they have grown noticeably though they aren't overly tender and sensitive. I had nausea for a few days and although that could be attributed to nerves and stress for the show i was in, it just felt weird because i had never had nausea before a performance before and it came on around the same time for 3 days. There was also a time when i would feel pressure on my bladder even when i didn't need to urinate and my mother told me that that can happen during ovulation and it did stop but I'm still worried. I also haven't been having much of an appetite lately and Im honestly not sure if the feeling in my stomach is slight nausea or hunger. I haven't been stressing about this for the last 2 months I was convinced by the first pregnancy test because it was an early detection test and the negative result came out in about 10 seconds but its just recently I've had some slight vertigo and I just don't know anymore.

ok but what about precum? Cant it cause pregnancy as well? He rubbed against my entrance. Does it come just before ejaculation or is it there the entire time he is aroused? And if it isnt pregnancy the why is it that my body is suddenly beginning to act this way?

Pre-ejaculate does not contain sperm.  However, it is called pre-ejaculate for a reason and sperm can escape if he started to ejaculate.  Once again, there is no way of knowing for sure why your body is suddenly acting differently until you start eliminating possible reasons.  The first easy thing to check is pregnancy.  If the test is negative and you are not pregnant, then you can start exploring the other reasons.

Now that you have shared this information, I'd like to give you a bit more information about how pregnancy occurs.  If you had intercourse where he pulled out before ejaculating, there is a chance you can still become pregnant.  If he did not ejaculate at all, then there is no way for you to become pregnant because no sperm came in contact with your vagina.  If he did not penetrate you but ejaculated, you cannot become pregnant from that either because it once again, did not enter your vagina.  

I'm not sure which scenario happen for you, but the exact event will determine a lot.

Hello lilsis,

Thank you for sharing with the community.  I'd love to give you some helpful advice.

The most important piece of information in order for me to help is to know when was the last time you had intercourse when your male partner ejaculated into your vagina?  The time when this happened will determine a lot.

Pregnancy tests are most accurate if you take it a week after a missed or irregular period.  Since you were not very successful with the home tests, your next step would be to take a urinary or blood test at the doctor instead.  That way you can trust its accuracy.

I would love to give you more detailed advice, but I will need to know a bit more about your symptoms in relation to when you had intercourse in order to do that.

Let us know more information and we'd love to get back to you with a more detail response.
