User :   hi, I had my period on Jan 25 and I was supposed to ovulate between the 7th and the 12th but, I think I ovulated last week.. we had intercourse on Saturday night and on Sunday I felt the two REALLY sharp pains in my abdominal area and that was it I have been nausous and dizzy.. My period was supposed ot start yesterday but all I have had was some cramping and light light spotting! Can I be pregnant.. I took a test today, and it said it was negitve.. Should I wait longer to take it since I ovulated later?
