Could I actually be pregnant ?

I lost my virginity about a month ago and I am currently 20 days late for my period. My boyfriend and I used the pull out method, there was no condom and I was ovulating. I took a pregnancy test when I was 4 days late and came back negative but throughout these 20 days I've been having some symptoms that are exactly the same as early pregnancy symptoms: firmer/fuller breast, tender nipples, white discharge, nausea, cravings, mood swings, gaining weight (not sure if bloating), and fatigue (currently having to be in bed very early compared to before). I'll be taking another pregnancy test soon but if it comes negative is it just my body getting used to me being sexually active or is there really a possibility of me being pregnant?

Ivanna, the pregnancy hormone doubles every few days in the first trimester. Run another test soon.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. With periods delayed by 20 days and pregnancy test still negative, get serum HCG levels to confirm, if still negative then other causes of menstrual delays need to be found out like infections, hormonal imbalances etc.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
