Delayed periods, heaviness in belly. Had unprotected sex, home test negative. Can I be pregnant ?

Hi, I had unprotected sex on July 18th. My last period was July 8th. I have a 28 day cycle meaning that my period was due on the 5th of August. My period has NEVER been late. If anything it comes a day or two early. I have taken 3 clear blue test from the 5th of August until yesterday and all have come out negative. I feel very different however, I feel very heavy in my belly, like I m bloated, I m of a skinny structure so I know when I am definately bloated. Could I be pregnant but the hormone won t show up in my urine test? I get slight cramps , especially when I lay on my stomach . What can you suggest.

Thanks for writing to us.

You did unprotected sex close to your fertile days and there is quite chance of pregnancy.

Therefore, I suggest you to REPEAT the home pregnancy test after 2 to 3 days or undergo one blood test for beta-hCG to confirm pregnancy as initial test result may be sometimes inconclusive.

Beside pregnancy, reasons of late period and above clinical features could be hormonal imbalance, over weight/ extreme loss, extra mental stress or anxiety, emotional upset, eating disorder, thyroid problem, PCOD etc.

On NEGATIVE test, I suggest you to undergo one USG lower abdomen and hormone test to rule out other underlying causative agent and confirm the diagnosis.

Kindly, consult with your local gynecologist and take advice accordingly. You may need to take hormonal pill to induce period.

You should control body wt, avoid stress, take healthy low carbohydrate diet with avoidance of fatty food and sleep properly.

Be well and take care.
