Light and short period for 2 months in a row

I have been under stress for a very long time since I had my first sexual experience (January 8th 2016). There was no penetration however his penis only touched my vaginal opening for a few seconds (He wasnt wearing any protection either i know its stupid) Also did mutual masturbation. Ever since that happened, I have been experiencing light and short period ( 1 day of somewhat heavy bleeding with clots sorry TMI, 2nd day it becomes lighter, then it ends with light pink and red spotting for several days). My first month of light period was a week earlier while the second month was 5 days late from my expected period. I have taken types of precautions. I took over 20 hpts and it all came back negative AND even went to my doctor to ask for a urine test twice which also came back negative. I have also gotten blood test 3 times already which came back <2 hcg. With all these negative results, i feel like i could still be pregnant due from experiencing symptoms such as motion sickness/dizziness (been going on since january, Btw can stress cause motion sickness?), backpain, bloating, I also feel like something stuck in my throat and heartburn. I am so frustrated and stressed out because of this. My period has always been heavy. Please help me. With all the negative results, does it really mean pregnancy can be ruled out completely? I feel like this is affecting my life so much. I cry and get depressed almost like everyday. My doctor tells me that not all period are going to be the same and that I had my period so it means im not pregnant. However right now I feel like everything is possible, Ive been thinking that this could have been implantation bleeding or cryptic pregnancy, every possible scenarios i can think of. Can a pregnancy go undetected? What should i do? I actually wanted to get an ultrasound however I could not get it since I had negative results.

Could this all be in my head? I really want to move on so bad.

Hi lqfreydo,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

There will be times, as a woman, that your menstrual cycle will change up. Since you are clearly not pregnant (negative test results and menstrual cycle), your menstrual cycle is displaying irregularly. In addition, the stress you are under could be affecting it even more.

Based on there not being any penetration coupled with the number of test you've had (home pregnancy and urine test with your doctor), if any of those had failed it would have been discovered by now. Rest assure, it is extremely unlikely that you are pregnant.

I hope this helps.

Be well,
