I had protected sex on march 13, 2 weeks later on march 23 got my normal period and the month of april I got my normal period and on month May I missed it I took a HPT and it came out negative. am I pregnant? will I have enough HCG by now to detect if I am pregnant or not? im just very concern. I get mild cramps here and there and a bit sore breast that's it.. by the way I haven't had sex since then

Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

If you've engaged in protected sex only, then pregnancy is not an issue.  Plus your home pregnancy test results were negative.  Is your menstrual cycle regular (like clockwork) or does it behave differently sometimes? Your age could be a factor if you are now starting to experience irregular menstrual cycle.

You should schedule an appointment with your doctor to confirm the negative pregnancy results and discuss any other causes.

Here is a resource for you:

I hope this helps,

Be well,
