constant pressure. No bleeding.No other symptom

Date of First day of Last Period: 2/21

Sunday, 2/17, I started my placebo week for my birth control pills, and my period started on the 21st which was right on schedule. I was suppose to start a new pack on 2/24 but had to fully skip a week because my prescription was not filled in time. So my next pack was started 3/3. On 3/2 my boyfriend and I participated in mutual masturbation (no sex). I have no idea, but I think it is possible that he got semen on his finger, that was inserted into my vagina, a minute or two after that. On Wednesday, 3/13, I started feeling a lot of pressure right under my belly button expanding across from one side to the other. I thought it was gas...but I went three whole days with constant pressure( No pain. It never stopped. Ever. Went to doctor, prescribed Macrobid for bladder infection. But got call today-culture negative. Had me take pregnancy test. Negative. (On 3/16) Could I be pregnant? I still feel this constant pressure. No bleeding.No other symptom

Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out.

Sperms lose their motility soon after being exposed to air. Hence pregnancy is less likely to occur after fingering.

For confirming the status of pregnancy by urine for pregnancy test (UPT),the most accurate way to test for pregnancy is to wait until after your period is due. First appearance of pregnancy hormone, HCG, due to implantation occurs 6-12 days after ovulation. So if you don’t want to wait for your periods and test for pregnancy then you can test at 9 or 10 days past ovulation with a sensitive ( 20 - 25 mIU ) pregnancy test.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
