my period ended on the 20th i had sex on the 21,24,30 and i have been cramping. its not like period cramps its more like gas cramps but in my uterus it comes and goes. i never had any cramps or implantation bleeding with the other two and i no every pregnancy is different. i have taken a pregnancy test it came out neg and i no its to early to test but is it possible that i could be pregnant? my last period was on the 15th and ended on the 20th i normally go 7 days but this time it was 6. i have been to the ob she told me my heath was good and my next period is due some were around the 12th of August

Exactly, too early to test
There is always a chance of pregnancy when having unprotected sex.
Wait, if you missed this month period, take a test.

Good luck.

Yes, it is too early to test for pregnancy.

As you may recall from your first two pregnancies (I'm making assumptions here!), that ttc is as much an emotional process as it is physical. Don't fall into the trap of over-analyzing every possible symptom as a potential pregnancy....it is an emotional rollercoaster! Remember: it takes 6-12 months for most women to conceive, so you could be going through this symptom-checking many times before successfully conceiving.

Have you been to the GYN recently, in order to have your annual check-up and baseline on your health?

In order to receive accurate results on a pregnancy test, you need to wait until you are expecting your period. Your LMP started...when? (Your GYN will need to know the date your last menstrual period started; it is irrelevant when it ended for tracking purposes).

Wait until mid-August when you would be expecting your next period (I assume your previous period began around mid-July), and if your period does not begin...that's when you test.

Good luck!
