Okay, i'm not trying to sound gross or anything but I really need some advice! I had an abortion on the 29 of march. (it was a medical abortion so it took a few days to actually happen). And everything worked out, than my boyfriend and I had anal sex 4 times in a two day time period (april 21 and 22). I was scared that I could possibly get pregnant so I took the morning after pill on the 23. Since then I have been completely paranoid. Now it is 5 days later and I am having frequent urination and i'm really worried I may be pregnant....I dont know if I actually feel anything or if i'm just racking my brain. The doctor told me I should get my eriod between may 29th and april 29th. what are the chances that I may be pregnant please reply. today, april 29 was the seventh day after the incident i took a pregnancy test and it said negetive. is it too soon to pick up HCG levels? i guess i'm so worried because they say your really fertile after an abortion.

It seems impossible that you could be pregnant. First, you can’t become pregnant during anal sex and, second and more importantly, the home pregnancy test you took is negative. Additionally, it seems that the test results are relevant because you took the pregnancy test at the time you should have gotten your period.
