Hi, I'm almost 18 years old. My boyfriend and I have had unprotected sex a lot this month. We never use condoms and I'm not on birth control. I always get my period 14 days after I ovulate (I know I was ovulating because I was spotting, I sometimes do that during ovulation). Well, I thought it was my period so we had sex anyway, but turns out I was ovulating. We have had sex since then, but I wasn't ovulating. Now it's been 17 days since I ovulated and I still have no period. I also get cramps before my periods come and I haven't had any cramps at all. I've been having some breast pain, it feels like stabbing in my nipple like someone is shoving a needle in it. and sometimes the very top of my breast hurts like it has been punched. I have gotten to the point where I have to take my bra off cause it is hurting so bad. I have been feeling ill a lot lately, and very very tired. Just within the past couple days I have been hungry a lot, and some foods don't even taste the same to me anymore. I am waiting a couple days to buy a test to see if my period comes. My nipples have felt swollen but I'm not sure if they are. He said that he pulled out (I know that's not a very safe method) but he said that he did get some in me and he pre cums a lot.
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Pre-cum/pre-ejaculatory fluid is known to contain sperms and the pullout method is associated with highest failures. The chances of pregnancy cannot be ruled out if you were sexually active around the time of ovulation. The symptoms (absent pre-menstrual symptoms, breast pain, sensitive nipples, sore breasts, feeling sick, increased tiredness, increased appetite) could be suggestive of possibility of pregnancy. Sometimes urine pregnancy tests can keep showing you false negative results during early pregnancy as the kits are calibrated ones, so unless the hormone levels in urine reach a certain level, they do not show positive results. If pregnancy is suspected, look out for development of any other new symptoms suggestive of pregnancy. Wait and watch for your periods. If you do not get your periods within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get abnormal/altered periods, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, you should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up of your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
