I ovulated Oct 19th-25th.I had unprotected sex Nov.3rd,using the withdrawal method.Then I started my period Nov 7th medium flow with no blood clots(unusual for me to have a clean period).I've been nauseous the same time every morning 5-7am,but my sinus drainage or UTI (I'm taking meds 4 it) could b the my breast are swollen.Also right above my pubic bone is hard.I've been feeling a tightening feeling there & to my left side a little.Yesterday I went to the e.r to make sure it wasn't fibroids.My Dr was sorry. He didn't sit down & talk to me not once,nor did he ever touch me. Then he gave me an ultrasound.The external 1 was a fail since my bladder wasn't full.The vaginal ultrasound,the ultrasound tech wouldn't let me see the screen nor did she tell me what she saw.My Dr then said there was no problem it isn't fibroids or anything,then rushed me out.I then ordered a blood test that was negative.I let my cousin who is a LPN feel above my pubic,she said its hard & get a 2nd opinion

Welcome to ehealthforum,
The symptoms could suggest chances of pregnancy, however it is difficult to comment on your pregnancy status without examining you. Finish taking the prescription given for treatment of UTI and see if your symptoms improve. If symptoms are persistent, you should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist (or take a second opinion as suggested by your LPN), for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Tests done early in pregnancy can show false negative results. Wait and watch for your next periods. If pregnancy is suspected, look out for development of any other new symptoms suggestive of early pregnancy.
Take care.
