I am experiencing an occasional metallic taste in my mouth and have sore breasts. Am i pregnant?

Hi, I was messing around with my boyfriend and he touched his penis to my vagina, but didn't ejaculate (he didn't ejaculate earlier in the day either or the day before) nor did we have actual intercourse. I also started my normally heavy period the day after (usually starts with brown discharge and gets extremely heavy for the next 6 days). 
The week after that, I started panicking at the thought of pregnancy and became extremely stressed out. Two days following that I had a severe headache, nausea, and diarrhea, and since have had frequent urination, pain in my lower abdomen, and some slight lower back pain. I was given Macrobid by my doctor who said that I was NOT pregnant (urinalysis) and had white blood cells in my urine. I took this and my abdominal pain subsided. I finished my medicine 48 hours ago. 
Now, I am experiencing an occasional metallic taste in my mouth and have sore breasts. My period isn't due until the 19th, and I'm used to feeling sore breasts a little less than a week before I begin (not at this level of soreness either). I am also experiencing lots of gas and persistent diarrhea. Am I pregnant? Or just paranoid? Is this caused by stress?
Just to clarify, the doctor took the urinalysis test two weeks after my boyfriend and I were getting intimate.

Thanks for the query

I think u r being paranoid. Not only did u have foreplay during your safe period, also u didnt have intercourse and also u had a period followed by a negative pregnancy test.
It is impossible for u to be pregnant
have a healthy living

Hi I had an abortion 3 weeks ago via softtouch method at Early Options. After exactly 3 weeks my breast became very heavy, my nipples very sore/sensitive, metallic taste in my mouth and tiredness. I haven t had sex since the procedure, but I did have sex the day before & it was unprotected. Could this be a new pregnancy? Because all my pregnancy symptoms stopped within 48 hours of the procedure. I was 7.5 weeks pregnant. I m freaking out that I m pregnant again, because I read that sperm can live in you for at least 2 weeks. Help!

Hi! I am trying to conceive (29 years old). I have been temping, tracking cervical mucus , etc. I m pretty sure I ovulated on Feb 17. Home pregnancy tests have been negative on 11 and 12dpo and on 12dpo my temp dropped and I had 2-3 days of bleeding, then nothing. Usually my periods are 5-6 days. Now since yesterday I ve had a pretty constant headache, fatigue , some dizziness , occasional metallic taste in my mouth, and just feeling off. This morning my temp was up WAY higher than it s ever been. Do you think my period was really implantation bleeding, and if so would a home pregnancy test be accurate tomorrow (which would be 18 days post ovulation)?

My daughter 17 years old and is presenting with severe kidney pain, nausea, fatigue and positive for haematuria however, CT scan has shown all clear and no kidney stones are present. Why else could there be blood in urine?She is a-febrile and doctor has done a urinalysis and said it is not a UTI although there is blood present.Thanks for your advice! Danielle

Hi! I am Jun, 49 y.o., 5'3'', 160 lbs and had kidney stone treatment 20 years ago. My RBC reflected `too numerous to count' finding. I had urine culture, morphology and ultra sound tests performed. There is nothing painful I feel when urinating, no fever, etc. But I had five urinalysis already and was advised to drink lots of liquid but the condition `TNTC RBC' persists.

During a health check for immigration purposes my 11 and a half year old daughter showed high levels of protein in her urine. Subsequent blood tests found her blood to be normal but her urine test shows microalbumin levels of 288 (they should be less than 20) and Urine ACR of 172.9 (should be less than 3.4). I was referred to a nephrologist and have to wait two weeks for the appointment. My concern is that this should have been treated with more urgency. She has no symptoms of illness at all. Please could you comment on this.

Hi there my 4 year daughter has suffered from urine infections and she had a really bad one at Christmas time where she had very high temp of 40c and when urine sample dipped it showed white blood cells, protein etc. Since Christmas she was very quiet, subdued and tired so much so the nursery had commented on how she was. She often complains of a sore tummy and I have put in other urine sample which came back clear for a urine infection however there was still blood present. Her GP has refered her to paediatrics but my concern is that she has had a low grade temp of 37.7 for weeks now and an on/off tummy pains, she is more lively now but still gets tired at times. I just wanted to know what to ask the paediatrians when I see them and if I should be concerned that theres maybe something else underlying.
