pregnancy symptoms

Firstly i would like to thank you for your patience and support you give to people.
Secondly, i have posted earlier due to a sexual assault (fingering and genital to genital contact) ..I started to bleed the day after (this was round about when my period was due so i take this as my period or trauma). Was again assaulted the day after my period (with clothing this time). I went to the walk in clinic where i discussed my concerns about pregnancy and the nurse said that pregnancy was not a concern in any of the situations as there was no penetration.

She didn't take a pregnancy test as she didn't feel a need but i have been doing some just in case.
This has caused me major stress this month and i have been feeling very nauseous and my appetite has gone out of the window. I have lost a couple of pounds and have to literally force myself to eat and the nurse said that all this could be linked. I just have one question: You've already told me that there is no way of pregnancy because i bled the day after the first assault and all out clothes stayed on during the second. My question basically is IF my nausea and food aversions are linked to pregnancy would a test show positive? I have read much conflicting things where some women feel symptoms before they get a positive and others arguing that if they were related to pregnancy there would be enough hormone for the test to detect.
My period is due any time now - i am dry from down there which basically hints to my lutheal phase.
Bare in mind it's been over 21 days for both occasions. (i'm afraid i might not get my cycle this month because of dietary changes and i'm so nervous which could be interlinked with the nausea etc) ...Trying to think logically as possible

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome back to EmpowHER. I remember responding to your previous post.

Anxiety is most likely at the root of how you are feeling.

It is apparent that you did not become pregnant, but you appear not to be able to accept that.

I urge you to get counseling regarding the sexual assaults. I may really help you move on.

Yeah I am receiving counselling

But I'm confused.
Can you please reassure me that if I have pregnancy symptoms then will the test be positive?

This will help m relax
