Could i be pregnant?
I last had unprotected sex 4 months ago and at the start i felt pregnant and had the symptoms, so i done 2 pregnancy tests which came out negative and then my periods came a day later. So for the next three months although still felt weird and different within myself i continued to believe i wasnt and that i was paranoid. My periods are usually late but these three times they came on the dot right.
I wasnt until 3 days ago where i had fever for 2-3 days then woke up sick vomiting every couple of minutes, plus a very bad head ache which felt like someone was smashing something against my head.(even dreamt this while i was sleeping , thats how bad the pain was) . So i woke up and made an appointment to see the gp and when i went in she checked me and then had a felt of my stomach, i told her that i have been getting cramps just underneath my stomach and as soon as she had e feel of my stomach she asked whether there was any chance i was pregnant. I hesitated but with my mother in the room I couldn't of possibly said maybe.(im 19 and my parents will literally kill me if they knew that i even had doubts of being pregnant let alone actually being pregnant). She was so adamant that i may be pregnant by asking me more than 5 times if i was however i put my foot down and adamant that i wasn't, my periods are two weeks late they are usually only one.

I haven't had any type of sexual contact since 4 months.
Could i be pregnant even though ive had my period 3 times since.

Thanks for any replies, need all the advice i can get.

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
Having regular periods is a sure sign you are not pregnant. The vaginal bleeding that occur during the first months of pregnancy is only spotting that lasts 1 or 2 days. It is nothing like a regular period. You do not have to worry about pregnancy at this point. If you had a pap smear, anything usual would be apparent.
Also, the fact that you had sex a day before your period means you were not ovulating during that time. Ovulation happens 12-16 days before your period. Since you were not ovulating, there was no egg to fertilize. Therefore, pregnancy cannot occur.
