Question
I had unprotected sex on my ovulation date, I am assuming. About a week later I had cramps, extreme bloating, increased hunger and thirst. I was supposed to start period 2 days ago but since only have had light spotting when I wipe, sometimes a faint red or a brownish color. I have taken two pregnancy tests which have been negative. Is it possible I am pregnant even with negative test results?

Hi,
Thanks for the query.

As you had unprotected intercourse around the time of ovulation, there is possibility for pregnancy.
In that case what you had could be implantation bleeding.
Sometimes urine pregnancy test kits may not detect early pregnancy, so you better go for blood test for pregnancy.
If the test comes positive, it is good. If it comes negative then the spotting you are having could be scanty flow during periods which is called hypomenorrhea.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries. If you are satisfied with all my answer, please rate the answer after closing the discussion.
Take care.

Hi,

During pregnancy some amount of cramping and bloating sensation are common.
If the cramping increases or associated bleeding or draining per vaginum etc occurs better to consult gynecologist immediately.
