Am I pregnant?

So I had sex with my boyfriend on June 5th. We used the pull out method but just in case I took next choice 18 hours later. I followed up with the second pill after 12 hours exactly. 5 days later I started bleeding and it lasted for about 3 days. I treated it like a period because it was similar. On July 5th (exactly a month after) I took a pregnancy test and it came out negative. The following day I went to see my doctor and she also gave me a urine pregnancy test and that was negative as well. I I did throw up yesterday but that could be from stress. I don't know if my period is late or now since I'm not exactly sure if the bleeding I had was a period. Please help me.

I got my period I think. It feels like a period and it looks like one but is there any chance i'm still pregnant?

If you took a pregnancy test and it came out negative, you should be fine.  If you are still concerned, you might need to see a doctor so he can do bloodwork.

It's been 27 days since I had the bleeding side effect. Since I had that does it mean I'm pregnant?

Hi Anon,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Anytime you have unprotected sex your chances for pregnancy are higher.  Yes it's possible that might have been your period.  Some women experience changes on their next period such as heavier or lighter, shorter or longer.  It's important to use protection such a condom or birth control pill, in order to avoid an unwanted pregnancy.

Here are some resources for you
