I had sex may 22 and used the pullout method. And we know for sure that he did not ejaculate in me. But I do know about pre ejaculation. I got my period june 11 and it started off real light but it picked up and lasted until june 14. Now I have no signs of a period and I should have one by now. I have taken hpt and gotten negative results. Could I still be pregnant?

No, you would not be pregnant. Today is only July 10th, and if your last period began June 11th, you still have a week (or two) to be within the normal range for your period to begin.

Please know: periods do not always happen like clockwork...you are human, after all! Many things can cause a "later-than-expected" period, including recent illness, new medication, stress, etc.

You may have heard that some women experience bleeding while they are pregnant, but this is not the majority of women, and this is also not a regular menstrual period that they are experiencing. A regular menstrual period is the shedding of the lining of the uterus, and your uterus lining is where an implanted egg would be located.
