Freaking out about possible pregnancy; advice?

Alright so almost 2 months ago (58 days ago), I lost my virginity to my boyfriend while no use of birth control was used (stupid I know). He was inside of me for no more than a minute and a half and says that he did not ejaculate. However I was paranoid and ran to the store and got Plan B. I took that within 2 hours of the ordeal.
I experienced the bleeding a week later (even though I had just finished my period not even a week before having sex). I had symptoms around that time and then felt fine. I was worried sick (still am). I then got another period 29 days later. It was heavy the first three days and then light and hardly visible unless I wiped for, the next two days.

I am about 5 days from when my next period is supposed to start and I am absolutely freaking out. For the last week or so I have been having stomach pain, particularly around my pelvis and belly button. It ranges from achey to feeling like someone is pushing on my stomach. I had also been quite dizzy and fatigued lately. I have felt bloated around my hipbones and everything in between. I have also been not at all hungry. I have also been smelling things that I normally would and they don't smell good like they normally would. I have also been experienced mild chest pain in the center of my chest however it's more to the left than the absolute center, (heartburn?). I don't know if it related but I'll also include that my lower arms have been a little numb occasionally. However I don't know if this from physical exertion. Finally I am experiencing Brest tenderness, but only when I touch them. I don't notice any of these symptoms really unless I'm just sitting around and I think of what's going on.
Now, I have done 7 pregnancy tests and they were all negative (the last ones being around 7 and a half weeks after having sex).
I thought I was in the clear and then I turned around and did what no one recommends doing; I did research. I found out that regular pregnancies as well as ectopic ones can go unnoticed for months if your HCG levels aren't rising normally. This fact is stressing me out immensely! I used to think that I was for sure not pregnant and now I am constantly thinking about it and it seems like everywhere I look there's more stuff about babies on social media or pregnant women walking around and I freak out every time. Any advice? What could be going on? Could I be pregnant? If not why do you think I am experiencing these symptoms? Could this just be anxiety affecting me?

Hi again, Anon.

Thank you for your post. But we have already helped you on this subject.

Please contact your, doctor. Pregnancy is not an issue. You don't need to keep testing. Perhaps he can suggest anti-anxiety medication for you or counseling to see why you are obsessed with thinking you are pregnant.
