two weeks ago, my boyfriend put the condom on the tip of his penis (probably getting precum on it), realized it was the wrong way when it wouldn't roll down, flipped it over, put it on properly, and we had sex.

two weeks ago was also the 14th day of my cycle.


and now, i'm three days late. i took a pregnancy test yesterday and today. both came back negative. i am still very worried because apparently the first urine sample of the morning is the most accurate, and i didn't use that both times i tested. and it might be too soon to take a test? not enough hormone two weeks after? the test says it's accurate four days in advance, but still, i'm not reassured by the two negative tests, and i don't know if i should be. tomorrow morning i plan to test again, first thing.

i took EC last month (i know, this must sound so bad and i sound so irresponsible), and my period came a week early. i'm calculating the time my period is supposed to come now from the day i got my period early because of EC. i guess it's possible EC could have thrown my entire cycle askew? or is it more likely that i'm pregnant from that condom mishap?

While pre-ejaculate does present a pregnancy risk, you can trust your pregnancy test results. They're accurate 10-14 days after the last risk, so you're okay, and most tests now are sensitive enough that you can test any time of day.

It's more likely that the EC you took last month has made your cycle a tad wonky- that's a very common side effect.

so ... i thought i could have breathed a sigh of relief-- today i started bleeding, it was VERY VERY light and pink in color, which is very not typical of me because when i first get my period it's usually very heavy and brown.

well, the bleeding was minimal apparently, it only showed when i wiped, i put in a pad and now there's no trace of bleeding, and the bleeding has all but stopped, so i guess i'm spotting?

implantation bleeding that happens 10-14 days later?

i took two pregnancy tests today and they both were negative, but i hear that only after spotting/implantation do the tests begin to reveal positive results ...

i'm freaking out ... i am so scared

Spotting is often confused for implantation bleeding. Pregnancy tests are accurate within 10-14 days of a risk, as I mentioned above, so you can consider both of the tests you took accurate. (Implantation bleeding doesn't define when a test is considered accurate- most women do not experience implantation bleeding when they concieve anyhow.) If you really want to, you can always retest, or drop in to your gyn or doc for a test.
