I don't understand why i'm stressing myself out. I was fooling around with a guy on aug 18th, he gave me oral, i was naked he had on jeans and boxers. When i looked up his boxers were open. I asked if anything happened and he said no. I was freaked out. I took a pregnancy test sept. 4, it was negative. I got my period sept. 5 but for some reason i was convinced it wasn't a real period even though i had my usual cramping and other pms symptoms. I took two more tests on sept. 10 and sept. 17, both of them were negative as well. I got my next period oct. 5. i only had two days of heavy bleeding then the next two were very light. I had brown discharge at the end which is normal for me. now i'm still cramping after my period and i'm still paranoid i might be pregnant...i'm tired of stressing myself for no reason...but i can't shake the fear

You're not pregnant. You have had three negative pregnancy tests and two regular periods since your risk. Not to mention that your risk was minimal at best, since your partner was wearing two layers of clothing. There needs to be direct genital contact for it to create a pregnancy risk.

If you are this concerned about practically non-existant pregnancy risks, it might be a good idea to step away from sexual activity for a while. While it's always good to be aware, it's not okay to spend weeks freaking out over nothing.
