It is doubtful that this would be a pregnancy symptom. If you have been having unprotected sex though, anything is possible (although not likely).

If you do not wish to become pregnant, use birth control. If you do wish to be pregnant, keep having unprotected sex.

again
ok so 13 days after i had pink spotting the first time, i had pinkish orange spotting. Then two days later(yesterday) i had pink kind of mucous when i wiped. i thought even though it was pink that i was maybe starting my period but i didnt so im really confused. im due to start my period anywhere from 3 to 9 days because my cycles always range from 29 to 35 days. So does anyone have an idea what is going on? sorry for posting so much about this but ive never had this pink 3 times. Thanks

If you have been having unprotected sex, then there is a possibility of pregnancy.

The pregnancy tests being negative means you are probably not pregnant. Cheap tests work just the same as pricier tests. The symptoms you are describing could be PMS.

If you don't start your period in a few days, take another test. If it is negative, you are not pregnant. Or, you could go see your doctor and get a blood test.

so im not pregnant
I was starting to get excited of the thought that I might actually be pregnant but then my period came three days late. I tried not to let it bother me because it wasnt like we were actually trying to have a baby but we never use protection any more either. And now my boyfriend has decided that he wants a baby also so I wish I would have been pregnant. So now Im a little upset. We have been having unprotected sex for about 6 months and I havent gotten pregnant yet. Im starting to think that there is something wrong with me and that I will never get pregnant. It hurts because even though Im young, I want to have a family of my own. But I guess if its meant to be then it will happen whenever the time is right.

Same story
That's crazy because I feel the same way like not like I'm trying to get pregnant but that I've been having unprotected sex for a long time and haven't gotten pregnant... Not that I'm trying to but it makes me think like I'm not fertile or something... I'm glad to hear your story tho. I've been spotting too but since I see that you spotted and weren't pregnant I'm thinking ther is hope for me yet. We need to be more careful.

Thats how I feel to I been have unprotected sex for along time with the pull out method im 21 and I'm starting to believe that there is something wrong with me but last year when i had a pap they said everything was good..but I had sex a week before my period and I had my period so I thought I wasn't preg. but my breast are hurting really bad even two weeks after my period and they seem to get worse everyday. I was just wondering is it possible to have sex a week before my period and my body wasn't really pregnant at the time so I had my period im not sure I think I thinking to much into this but I don't know. Has anyone had this experence before? I want to take a pregnancy test but I'm to scared to find out. I want to be pregnant and not get a neg.
