I know you guys are always getting swamped with the "am I pregnant" question & I apologize ahead for adding another to the list, but I am very worried.
So, about four months ago, in august, I had sexual intercourse. I was on birth control & he was using a condom and I got my period 2 days later & everything seemed fine. I've been having a regular period since & I'm still on birth control. However, I have been having upper abdomen pain late at night & its like a sharp pain. I started having these pains before the time I had sex, & the pain comes and goes & just recently (during finals week -- I'm a freshman in college) they came back. So, I went to my doctor and told him about what I was experiencing & he asked me was there anyway I was pregnant & of course I said no because I've been having a regular period. He thinks my pains are stress related but tested my urine and is testing my blood & stool for abnormalities. When he tested my urine, he said everything came back negative but my protein levels were a little high, so I went online & found that higher levels of protein can indicate pregnancy.
Now I'm worried that I am pregnant. If so, I would be around 16 weeks pregnant (4 months). I don't seem to be showing at all but I've heard it is common for women to not show until at least 18 weeks of pregnant. What is the probability that I am pregnant? Should I take a test?
