Pregnant from pre-ejaculate?

User Profile
I need help. I am 6 days late for my period. I had sex 17 days ago (January 3), and began without a condom, but ended with one. We had not had sex in a while and he had not ejaculated anytime recently. Is there a chance that I am pregnant from pre-ejaculate?

Additional Information:
I am 23.
My last period began on 12-16 and I still have not received my period.
My breasts are somewhat tender and I have a backache and random cramps.
I am also overweight and I believe that I have recently gained more.
I have taken MANY pregnancy tests all different brands all with first morning urine and they are ALL NEGATIVE.

Please help!

Welcome to ehealthforum.
Your symptoms (breast tenderness, abdominal cramps, backache, weight gain, missed periods) are suggestive of pregnancy. Urine pregnancy tests can show you false negative results due to less concentration of pregnancy hormone (HCG) in urine. You should consider visiting your gynecologist for thorough examination, blood HCG test and ultrasound scan to confirm/rule out pregnancy.
Take care.
