I had sex with my bf on Oct 3, and we didn't use protection because I felt my period was already close (Oct 10, and I kinda check for ovulation through cervical mucus: I ovulated the week before. But now I have all the PMS symptoms, no period. Lots of cramping, but no blood. Pregnancy test is negative, it's making me worry. Comments??

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for coming to our community for input.

If I understand correctly, you think you ovulated a week before having unprotected sex.
Sperm can live in the female reproductive tract for three to five days. A released egg lives about 24 hours. If you did indeed ovulate seven days before sex, chances are the egg and the sperm died before being united.

I suggest you take one more test. Wait until October 17. If still no period, test in the morning. For the most accurate result, test with the urine when you wake up and use the bathroom. Be sure to check the expiration date on the box and follow all directions carefully.

Let us know what happens,
