Hello! I know I've posted here before because I was (and still am a tiny bit) freaking it about a possible, but not likely, pregnancy scare. I know you all talk to a lot of people during the day, so let me re-state the basics of what happened (though I'm sure you might remember me)
My boyfreind and I had sex a few times last week (it's been a little over a week since the first time we did it) I am 99.9% sure, and he is too, that the condom never broke. It also never slipped all the way off, it slipped a little, but that was before he came and we fixed it right away! It also got a little dry and bunched up, but we also fixed that right away to. [Smile]

Now, I know it was probably too early for this, but I was literally about to have a mental breakdown over this whole pregnancy scare, I am not even kidding. I was so worried that I had convinced myself I was pregnant, that every little pain I felt in my lower abdomen was due to pregnancy, even though my breats aren't sore or anything like that.(though I was told that it was very unlikely to happen) so, I worked on some courage and took a pregnancy test, like I said, it's been a little over a week, I know I was supposed to wait at least 14 days but I just couldn't take it any more! The anxiety was killing me! So I went ahead and took a pregnancy test and it was clearly NEGATIVE, like there are no doubts about it.

So, can I be pretty convinced that I'm not pregnant now? I mean, I'll still have some full cramps from time to time, but that might be from all of this crazy anxiety that I've put myself through!

Thoughts?

Let's try this on: you took a pregnancy test, following the directions. It told you, on the box, how effective it was.

Do you feel like you can trust that information or not? If not, why not?
