If blood test for HCG was negative at 30 days after sex, you are not pregnant, ectopic or otherwise. It is not feasible to know the cause of your symptoms without examining you. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

A female asked:
I had sex 7 weeks ago. I had my period since then twice, first in time, second 4 days late. I had multiple negative urine tests. I had a blood test last week that said hcg less than 1. Also, a negative ultrasound. Am I still at risk of an ectopic pr?

No so far.: You had many tests done and it was negative. You can have further test done to make sure such as hysterosalpyngogram.
