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.

If it is pregnancy should I be concerned with the cramps and bloating?

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.

Hi - I have been having severe bloating and stomach and side tenderness for the past (4) days. I am not nauseous nor do I have diarrhea, but leading up to this I am always hungry and have been gaining weight at an alarming rate. I also have gas all the time (belching) and I feel dizzy with stomach pains when I am hungry. I am a 48 year old male, around 265 pounds. I am trying to lose weight by eating right and exercising but can t even get started due to this problem I deal with daily.

Hello. I am having little sesame seed like soft, white pieces in my stool every time I have a movement. I also have a lot of bloating and gas that I can feel in my lower abdominal area (below belly button) down to the pelvic area. I also hear the typical growling with it. I eat very cleanly (mostly Paleo style). The onset seemed to occur after I drank a bunch a couple of bottles of Kefir each day for 3 or 4 days for meals (I was too busy to stop and eat a regular meal - I know, I know not the best idea.) What do you think is going on?
