Not Sexually Active but Possible Pregnancy?


Two weeks ago this past Wednesday, I was diagnosed with a UTI. I have been on two different types of antibiotics, cipro and Ceftin.

Once starting the antibiotics, I started spotting. I am on birth control and started my period right on time Tuesday the 13th of this month. It was a little lighter than usually, but it was the same duration and I still filled up several pads. After the period stopped on Sunday, I began spotting again up until Wednesday.

Beyond that, I have been having a lot of back pain and nausea even after my period has stopped. I am not sexually active even though my fianc and I do occasionally engage in foreplay which I had the first of this month.

I have taken six pregnancy tests, three of which were before my period and three which I took after my period ended and all have been negative. The last test was taken a week after my period started.

I know I’m just paranoid, but I just want to know if there is any possible way I could be pregnant.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Spotting can occur if you either miss a pill or can be due to stress,strain or weak health.As because,you are on pills,there is no issue of getting pregnant and thus,stop overthinking and stop wasting those test kits.Just continue those pills as before and that will be subsided.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counseling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
