A 18-year-old female asked about a 19-year-old female:
Friend fears pregnancy. claims faulty condom, 6 months later, regular period, 3 negative tests, but "bloated" and chubbier. is she just paranoid?

Probably nothing: ...And despite evidence to the contrary continuing to fear pregnancy may be an expression of guilt rather than paranoia. Reassure her and if necessary have her seen by a gynecologist if she hasn't already.

Pregnancy: Six months into a pregnancy one would not just be bloated, they would be pregnant. There would be fetal movement. There would be little room for food or stool in the abdomen and these would be daily problems for the pregnant female.
In today's testing there is no possible way to have three tests false.
Paranoid is not the word for this psychiatric problem. It may be time for a psychiatrist.
