Hi, i had protected sex with my boyfriend (5th august) and he did not ejaculate inside of the condom. my period came 5 days later (10th august). my next period was due on the 6th of september but is a week late. i've had slightly sore breasts and i've gained 2 kg. i took a pregnancy test 4 days into my missed period and it came out negative. could i still be pregnant ?

Hello monicabarbara_,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community,

If your last period was normal and you have not had unprotected since then, you are not pregnant.

Wait and if you do not start your period within the next week, test again. For the most accurate result, test first thing in the morning.

Keep us updated,
