Please help, i am very confused, I fell pregnant last December and had an abortion as I could not keep the baby. My first period after this came on the22/01 and then on the 14/02. I had sexual intercourse 2 times during the time of my second period from the 10/02 onwards, cant remember exactly when. My boyfriend did not ejaculate inside of me, nor did we have full vaginal intercourse, he entered me for a very short time and pulled out before ejaculating. On the 1 st occasion of this happening I took the morning after pill.I am now panicking as I think I may be pregnant again. I do not have any symptoms apart from a slight cramping pain in my right lower abdomen area, where the ovaries are. CAn this pain be from something else? How early can I detect if im pregnant? I did a home pregnancy test a few days ago and it was negative. I cannot believe this has happened again and am very stressed. Please help!
Thank you

According to the data you’ve given to me th your next period (menstruation) should start on the 8th of March. It is not possible to detect a possible pregnancy before the 3rd of March, so the pregnancy test you’ve taken is not valid. Slight abdominal cramping pain is not a sign of pregnancy. It can be caused by many reasons, both genital or extra-genital.
