Hi Welcome to HealthcareMagic

Since you had regular periods you are not not pregnant... The bleeding is normal menstrual cycle... The test which was positive earlier could be a false positive.. there is nothing much to worry.. the tiredness, generalized body weakness are common during periods...

welcome to healthcaremagic forum,
since you had periods after unprotected sex and the repeated hpt came out negative ,there will not be any chance of pregnancy.defective cards may show false positive result. so nothing to worry,don't think too much..all the best

Good afternoon! I ve got a couple questions. First, I m quite regular (typically to the day) in terms of menstruation. I m currently 9 days late. I took a test when I was 2 days late, the test was negative. I have been experiencing a lot of ovarian discomfort on the left side only. I typically track my cycle, bodily symptoms, etc. I feel like I m ovulating, but that would mean I m ovulating 7-9 days after I was supposed to start menstruation. Might you suggest what could be going on?
