Pregnant or not?

Soo 2 months ago i had sex with my boyfriend. We were using protection (condom). Since then i have my period regularly and everything is normal. But then it suddenly occurred to me that I might still be pregnant. I did a test 33 days after the sex and one 22 days later (55 days after sex). Both of them negative as i expected. But i still can't stop stressing over it. I've read about the hook effect when if the test is done too late it may give false negative. Please tell me what you think i am freaking out. 😕

  • There are a lot of factors here, all saying you are NOT pregnant. It is totally valid, as a female especially, to worry about this a lot, especially if you haven’t had much sex in your life. Different methods of birth control instead of or in addition to condoms, could ease your worries, but for now look at the facts:


    - You had sex 1 time (many people have to try many times to get pregnant even no condoms)
    - You used a condom which are very effective (if used properly) nearly 100% of the time - many people will use condoms hundreds of times and not get pregnant
    - You are still having your period and have had NO changes or irregularities in this.
    - You aren’t having any morning sickness or noticing weight gain as far as I can tell. If you were 2 months pregnant your body would likely feel different
    - You’ve also gone to the extent to take not one but TWO pregnancy tests both of which came back negative - this is huge! The tests are very accurate and only rarely have mistakes!


    You have gone above and beyond what many people do when it comes to protecting themselves from pregnancy and double-checking they are not. Of course you never know and there always might be that tiny sliver of a chance but in this circumstance I’d say your chance of being pregnant is so so low. Like a fraction of a percentage 0.001 % or something probably not even that high. Take a deep breath and relax seriously.


    As a female it is easy to worry about this, and totally normal to be afraid of something like that really disrupting your life. You are being very safe though and need to just trust in that. Don’t let unfounded worries about being pregnant ruin sex for you! Be safe, be cautious, but have fun and don’t go down the rabbit hole of what if the test is wrong what if the condom doesn’t work. You are in the same boat as the rest of us, and condoms and pregnancy tests are what we use to make sure we are not pregnant, so relax! Really relax! I don’t think you are pregnant! You also don’t need to do a pregnancy test every time you have sex! Only IF you did not use a condom or are seeing signs you might be pregnant (like missing your period.) Best of luck to you and relax really!

    • Thank you very much! I realize it's all in my head and I just need to talk to someone. even reading your answer I calmed down considerably even though the fear is still here. I have problems with ocd and i am explaining to myself that i am not pregnant hundreds times a day. It's like i can't convince myself and that's bothering me. It despairs me and tires me mentally.

  • How many times did you get your period since your last sex and how much? I think you can experience some bleeding called implantation bleeding during early pregnancy which is often mistaken for a period but it shouldn't be a lot and it would probably happen once. Ofc i'm neither a doctor nor have i ever been pregnant so i can't really help you. However, if you're really worried, I suggest the best thing to do is go to a doctor to check.

    I hope you get your peace of mind soon. Goodluck.. x

  • It's normal to be worried about being pregnant, its a phase you go through but when you keep it to yourself then it makes it worse. So im glad u went on here to share how u feel because it helped you. You don't have nothing to worry about.

  • Well everything you've said points to you not being pregnant, If I were you, I wouldn't worry so much about it. Protection was used, your period is on time, and your multiple tests were negative

  • You are stressing uselessly but i understand you. I am quite like you as well. I sometimes stress about being pregnant even if i haven’t been in any sexual activity. It has more to do with your psychology and perhaps past trauma. You are not pregnant

    • Thank you!

    • Anytime!

  • No, You aren't pregnant based on what you said
