Possibility of Pregnancy?

So it's going on about 4 weeks now since i had protected sex, and ever since then I've had a gassy, tight feeling in my abdomen. Went to the doctors to check for pregnancy, it was negative, had a regular menstral cycle that month, and went back to the doctors and yet again it was negative. I don't understand the reason for this uncomfortable feeling that hasnt seemed to subside over the weeks. I'm really nervous that it could be a symptom of pregnancy. This tight and gassy feeling doesn't seem to go away. Is it possible I could be pregnant and is it when you've missed a period that you begin to have symptoms, ( bloating, sore breast) not before? Im just trying to set my mind at ease, please help!!!

Hi Anonymous,
When you say that you have had protected sex, do you mean that you are taking oral contraception or is your partner using condoms?
If you have had a normal period last month, been seen by your doctor and the pregnancy tests were both negative...it doesn't seem very likely that you are pregnant.
Are you late for your period this month? Is that why you suspect that you might be pregnant?
Feeling bloated and gassy may be signs of a gastrointestinal issue. Maybe you should schedule a complete physical exam with your medical doctor to find out what is causing your symptoms.

my partner was using a condom. It's not that im late this month, I'm still waiting for my time, it's the fact that I've had this tighness in my stomach feeling for a long while now, since the day i had sex.
but i will take the advice, thankyou.
