Pregnancy or late period?

Hello, my boyfriend and I have had sex 4 times between my last period and two weeks ago. Everytime we had sex, we used a condom. 2 or 3 of the times I asked him to pull out before he ejaculated and he did. I use a period tracker app to help keep track of my periods now that I am becoming intimate. It's been pretty accurate the last few months I have been using it. My last period was on Feb 17 amd my periods are usually 27 days apart. I was supposed to start March 17 and I didn't. I am now going to be 2 days late. Let me add that usually before I start my period I begin spotting for a few days. I have seen no signs of spotting yet. I am not on any birth control and my periods are pretty irregular but the app says my average time between periods is 27 days. I am going crazy. Could I possibly be pregnant? I have taken 2 tests thus far and they both are negative. Should I be concerned? This is driving me nuts and making me stressed which I feel is delaying my period further. Please help!

Hi, lucy1222.

Thank you for your post.

If you already have irregularity, stress certainly won't help the situation. From what you say, the sex was protected and your test results indicate that you are not pregnant. Try to relax and wait for your period to arrive.

Feb 14-20 i got my period. We had unprotected sex on Feb.24. I have my underwear on, and he didn't wear anything but no penetration happened. He ejaculate on my body. On March 03 we had unprotected sex again but this time I didn't wear anything. And he had his underwear on. The tip of his penis didnt cover the underwear. I hold it and he stopped.

On March 12, i feel sudden of stress, nausea, cramps, and bloated.

March 16 I started my period with brown stain then turn to red with clots. I feel fullness or tender breast, and still feel bloated and nausea.

Saturday night I got light red like it was spotting. I thought my period end already but Sunday morning the period came back red again. I also feel my legs numb or tingling it shows up veins. And after I poop my pelvic got pain, feeling bloated. Until now I feel full and tender breast.

Am I pregnant?

Hi, again.

If you are having your period, you are not pregnant. If you still have doubts, it's best to take a home pregnancy test or see your doctor. But from what you say, you never had sexual intercourse even so.
