Ok this is how it happened... I had unprotected sex with my girlfriend the first day of her period. Now the next month shes 3 days late today. She claims to have never been late before except for once 2 months ago she was a week late and that was her first time. She is saying she has cramps like she going to get it but she hasent... So we got a pregnancy test and it came out "not pregnant" (It was the clear blue digital thats 99%+ effective on the first day of a missed period we followed all directions carfully and are planning on taking another soon) but i still seem to be a little scared. I looked up the signs of pregnancy and she dosent seem to have any real symptoms. I just know of a few friends who got pregnant and they talked to me about clinics to check out and its making me nervice... Should I really be this scared about it or am i taking it out of proportion? My girlfriend seems to be less scared then I am...Thankyou for your help taking the time to read and reply =]

There is always a chance of pregnancy when having unprotected sex. It is typically less likely to happen during a women's period because she usually does not ovulate then, but a woman's cycle can be irregular at any time or release an extra egg without her having any way of knowing. Did you take the test with her first morning urine? Wait a few days and test again. Periods can also be late due to many other things, such as stress.

also, february was a shorter month so that could also throw off her dates.
