Could I be pregnant?

I last had sex a week before my period was due. It was with a condom and as far as I know it didn't break.

A couple of days after that.. I started to get nausea and I have only gotten nausea when I was pregnant with DS. So paranoid me, I brought some pregnancy tests and each day- leading up to when my period was due- I took a test, which they all came out negative. But then, my period came a day early before it was due, so I breathed a sigh of relief. Although! My period only lasted for two days!

So here I am hoping I'm in the clear. But I've been getting this nausea feeling on and off. It has gotten worse these couple of days, I just want to lie in bed all day!

I took another pregnancy test today and it came out negative. But when I went to my GP yesterday, he was questioning me if I was pregnant or not as he couldn't find any explanation regarding my nausea. He gave me some tablets to help the nausea, but I'm worried to take them incase I am as they are not recommended for pregnant women.

What do you guys think?

So what do you guys think?

I would say that after a couple of days any sperm that escaped were still swimming to an egg and the chances of your nausea being from pregnancy then are very very slim.

If you followed the instructions to the letter on the test kit then no. But don't you have to wait a certain period of time? Did you do this and what is the point of repeating tests.
I'm doubting you followed the instructions.

You are definitely not pregnant

Anxiety can cause nausea and an odd period. If it's been 14 - 16 days since possible conception and multiple test are negative, then you're most probably in the clear, all things considered.

Statistically, pregnancy is highly unlikely. Even if you timed it around ovulation & the condom broke, there's only a 1 in 4 chance of conception.

So outside of your normal fertile time (presumably - how long are your cycles?), using a condom and you've had a bleed and negative tests. Super unlikely.

My periods usually last for 5 days. But I don't think I'm pregnant at all. Just hope this nausea goes away.
