Hello! I have had the most stressful couple weeks ever! The last day of my last period was 4/30. I was raped on 5/1... I took the take action one step pill within 12 hours of the incident. I got the worst of all the symptoms...pretty bad cramping, nausea, fatigue, hot flashes.. 4 days later, I started spotting, which turned into heavy bleeding with clots, that lasted about 3 or 4 days. Besides some slight cramping and A LOT of anxiety and stressing, I was feeling okay, until 5/15 the symptoms started to hit me again.. Sore breasts, nausea, fatigue, slight cramping. I took a pregnancy test the morning of 5/16 and it was negative but my period still isn't even due for another week.. I know that all I can really do is wait it out, I just feel so emotionally beat down and completely terrified! I've been frantically searching for any bit of reassurance... I can't seem to catch even the slightest bit of peace of mind. I know I was still like 10 days from ovulation when it happened but all this stuff happening to my body is really messing with me. :'( Am I pregnant?

Thank you for your response! I'm not sure about pursuing any legal action right now..it's just way too much to take on at the moment. I'm just trying to take care of me and get past this whole stress of possibly being pregnant. I do plan on getting an exam, I just feel like my life is on hold until I know pregnancy is not an issue. I am on emotional overload right now :( I did take the one test (neg . but I fear it was too early.
