Hi, I am very nervous about possibly being pregnant. I had unprotected sex in april It lasted for about 5 seconds because it was not something I wanted to do. I don't believe any pre ejaculation occurred in those 5 seconds. I took plan b about 12 hours later. I have gotten my period on time for the past 3 months and have had no symptoms of pregnancy. I took a few tests that all came back negative. I was reading about decidual bleeding and have been getting nervous that this is what I might believe to be my period. The only reason why Im having anxiety about the thought of being pregnant is because my stomach has been feeling very weird lately. Also I heard that decidual bleeding can cause negative pregnancy tests because of the hormones being out of wack. Any help would be great to ease my mind.

Pregnancy tests test specifically for a hormone ONLY created by pregnancy, and a hormone that is essential to sustain a pregnancy. So, even if and when someone pregnant is having vaginal bleeding for any reason, pregnancy tests will still be effective.

As well, someone being pregnant for three months and having no changes to how they feel in their body at all would be exceptionally unusual: pregnancy is a huge event, and by the time someone is entering their second trimester, they are going to have had a host of different feelings and changes that you really can't miss, even if you don't know to associate them with pregnancy.

You've taken tests with negative results, and you can trust those results. If you feel you can't, your next best step would be to visit a general or sexual healthcare provider and have them do a test and exam for you.
