Could I be pregnant?

Hi. I have a question and I would really appreciate it if you could help me. I was supposed to have my period on April 21, but the night before that (April 20) I had an unprotected intercourse but he did not ejaculate inside me. Prior to that I was not experiencing any of my usual pms symptoms when I was about to get my period. When april 23 came and I still doesn't have my period, I drank nordette as an ecp (my 3rd time using it). I was expecting to have my bleeding few days after that but nothing came. But since last week, I started to feel fullness in my breast and sensitivity in my nipples and along side with it, I had very light bleeding since May 1 which I'm still experiencing up to now. The bleeding somewhat looks like my usual period but only fewer blood, it also has blood clots and the blood looks somewhat sticky but it was light that i could not even cover a whole pad. Up to now, I'm still experiencing fullness in my breast. I have taken pregnancy test twice, last May 3 and May 5, around 2 weeks after my intercourse and it both came back negative. Could I still be pregnant? If not, then when will my usual period come? And what does the light bleeding I'm having could signify? Thank you so much for answering.

Hi, Anon.

Thank you for your post.

If you are bleeding - even if lighter than your usual period- you are not pregnant. You also took the Nordette which likely helped it along. You can always test again once your period ends if you still have doubts.
