Should a pregnancy test be done when experiencing dizziness and frequent urination?

Hi there. This is really stupid but, about a month ago my boyfriend and I were having sex, and I thought he was wearing a condom when he wasn’t. I don’t think any sperm got in me, but it was close. I have irregular periods where I don’t know when i’ll Have a next one but, I am experiencing some different symptoms such as bloating, heartburn, having to urinate a lot more frequently, dizziness, and a general irritability has me worried that I might be pregnant. Should I take a test?

Of course you should take a home pregnancy test but remember that you have to take it five days past your expected period.

Hi I am having issue with frequent urination . When I lay down I have to pee ifi do not lay in the same position or turn to the other side I have to pee again. It wakes me up also if I move while I am sleep. I took a pregnancy test it said negative. I did this because I also had a contraction like pain today for the first time since I have this issue. My last cycle was the week before Christmas and since it has went off this has been going on. As soon as I drink something I have to pee. Can you please help me!

Of late this has become a huge problem because all i ever think is about holding my pee.i am not able to concentrate in class or even in exams because the first two hours i think i should not pee while the next hour i think about holding my pee. i get up and leave for the bathroom usually near the end of the class and this is causing a lot of embarrassment because when i leave for loo the lecturer pauses for a while and the students stare at me.this issue is giving me anxiety because all i ever think of is whether or not i will be able to hold my pee tomorrow .now, i am afraid to go to college because i am the only one who gets up and leaves. when i am holding my pee i am experiencing a lot of pain in the back region ( where the kidneys are) and also i feel a lot of pressure building up in my bladder.i pee a lot after this urge and the urine is colourless.the pain in kidneys subsides after a long time( after half an hour) and i also feel dizzy.i am constantly thirsty so much so that i even get up from sleep to drink water or to urinate.if i quench my thirst i feel the need to pee and if idont i don t feel comfortable.please help me doctor and sorry for the long emotional question Thank you
