Question: I am 57 years old with no period in the last 2 1/2 years. My gyno told me I could not get pregnant. I had unprotected sex 22 days ago and tested negative today with EPT test. My breasts are sore though and I am scared to death I am pregnant. I just went off of provera 10 mg two months ago and don't know if that is why my breasts could be hurting. How many days after sex can I be sure I am not pregnant if still testing negative.

Brief Answer:
Chances of pregnancy very remote.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to HCM.
I am Dr Rakesh Sharma answering your query.
I can understand your concern.
Chances of you being pregnant is very remote at this age.
Your symptom may be Provera withdrawal symptom.
You did not have period for so many months , so it is difficult to calculate, when your test should be positive for pregnancy after sex.
But if you are still in doubt , get you beta HCG test done.
Hope I have answered your query.
If any thing else you are welcome.
Good luck.
