ok so i had my IUD removed in early March, had my period March 12, on April 14 was my next i should have had my period 2 days ago i took a HPT on May 12 and had a neg result. on the 15 i had a slight positive the second line was so light i could barely see it( i didnt pee as long as it says to on it), ive been having really bad pains in my stomach so i went to ER they tested me for preg with pee it was neg and gave me a transvaginal ultrasound, they dont know whats wrong at ER, i was wonder why they didnt double check with a blood test and if the TVUS could have been done too early to see anything? please answer ASAP im really nervous

A blood test is usually only done if there's a need to confirm the results of a urine test, so if the doctor you saw at the ER didn't think the negative result was wrong, it's not surprising they didn't order a blood test. Transvaginal ultrasounds can detect evidence of pregnancy fairly early on, but not immediately: around five weeks is the very earliest a pregnancy would be visible.

Really though, the best person to talk to about this is a healthcare provider, especially if you're still having pain. If that pain is severe and you feel you need to be seen ASAP, then the ER is the place to go, but otherwise, make an appointment with your doctor or a sexual health clinic for as soon as they can fit you in.

I totally understand your concern there, I really do - I've been in a similar spot before.

That said, your best bet is to not think quite that far ahead until/unless you get a positive pregnancy test. It causes some serious stress on you for no reason. Certainly, being aware of what you'd do in the case of an unwanted pregnancy is something to think about when you're sexually active, but no need to drive yourself insane with it at this moment.

Since you took the test when you were supposed to (14 days after the risk or when you miss your period, whichever comes first) and it's negative, you can take another test one full week (if you haven't gotten your period yet) later to be absolutely sure. More on that here:
Peeing on a Stick: All About Pregnancy Tests

In the meantime, try to relax. And like Karyn already said, stomach pain should be checked out by your doctor (it's not a viable early sign of pregnancy).

Also, check this out:

You've had a couple of negative tests, so it's pretty safe to say that pregnancy isn't the cause here. The IUD removal may have something to do with it, but really, your doctor is the best person to ask about this. We can guess, but we're not doctors and we can't examine you, so we can't know for sure what's going on - your doctor has your medical history and will be able to figure this out.
