Body changes: There are 2 main reasons sex feels different during pregnancy. With pregnancy, there is engorgement of the vaginal tissues which can cause a chafing feeling during and after sex. Part of orgasm is uterine contraction. With increasing size of the uterus, orgasm can cause a pressure feeling or cramp feeling that can last for up to half and hour after sex. ...Read more

Does a period of 4-5 days monthly after sex,not skipping one,on different days each month(always been like that),and a neg test rule out a pregnancy?

Depends: If you did the test more than three weeks after the episode of sex in question and did the test correctly, it would rule out pregnancy, if negative. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex if you have sex, . Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Possible : Possible changes due to pregnancy would be exceptionally subtle or there may not be any if you haven't missed your menses. Now, if you have missed your period, it is ok to use a home pregnancy test now. Maybe he has a crystal ball? Just joking. It would be highly doubtful that he was able to determine you were pregnant at this time. ...Read more

Last period jan 31. Pregnancy symptoms and boyfriend says that sex is different. Took a pregnancy test last week came back negative. Too early?

Last period jan 31. Pregnancy symptoms and boyfriend says that sex is different.  Took a pregnancy test last week came back negative. Too early?

Regular periods?: If you have regular periods every 28-30 days then you should have had one by now and a pregnancy test should have returned positive. You could always wait another week and try another pregnancy test. Sounds also like your boyfriend thinks sex is different because he's nervous about pregnancy risk. Talk about birth control together. It's not you. It's him. ...Read more

Is 8 days after unprotected sex enough time to detect pregnancy In a blood test ? I took a home test it came out negative but I feel so different

Is 8 days after unprotected sex enough time to detect pregnancy In a blood test ?  I took a home test it came out negative but I feel so different

It depends...: In some cases a blood test may be positive as soon as 8 days after an egg is fertilized (which may not be until a few days after sex, depending on when you ovulate), but it usually takes 10-11 days after fertilization. A home urine test will generally be positive a few days after the blood test. ...Read more

Hi so I have the bar but I'm like spotting and I had sex two weeks ago and have been feeling a little different. Can I take the pregnancy test now?

Hi so I have the bar but I'm like spotting and I had sex two weeks ago and have been feeling a little different. Can I take the pregnancy test now?

Depends: If you have missed your period, you may take a blood test for HCG which would be positive after missed period if you are pregnant. You may do a home pregnancy test 4-5 days after a missed period. If it is negative, repeat it 4-5 days later. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

I had sex with no protection and he came in me two different times. I have been bloated with little flutters and cramps..pregnancy sign already?

I had sex with no protection and he came in me two different times. I have been bloated with little flutters and cramps..pregnancy sign already?

Not a sign yet.: If you are having unprotected sex around cycle day 14-15, then you are having sex at a time most likely to result in a pregnancy. The bloating and cramping that you feel along with increased bowel activity (flutters) occur after ovulation and in the absence of pregnancy. This is very normal. ...Read more

I had unprotected sex and four days later i bled. Thought it was my period, but it was different. Having symptoms of pregnancy. Could i be pregnant?

I had unprotected sex and four days later i bled. Thought it was my period, but it was different. Having symptoms of pregnancy. Could i be pregnant?

Yes: Unprotected sex can lead to pregnancy. Take a pregnancy test, and if it is negative, repeat it in 7-10 days. (do not have sex until after the second test). If it is still negative you are not likely to be pregnant. If you do not want to be mother or have children now, you should see a provider or planned parenthood to get information on birth control. You are also at risk for stds. ...Read more

I've been late on my period. I had sex 2 weeks back & I've taken up 7 pregnancy tests so far at different occasions & intervals. All negative.

I've been late on my period. I had sex 2 weeks back & I've taken up 7 pregnancy tests so far at different occasions & intervals. All negative.

May be tested too: soon. Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about 2-3 weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Period shorter & lighter this month. Negative pregnancy test; no unprotected sex. Came on time, but just different. Could i still be pregnant?

Unlikely: You may do a home pregnancy test and if it is negative repeat it in 7-10 days. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

Pms cramps are lighter and different this month. Also having pain below my ribs. Never had sex so pregnancy unlikely. What is causing this?

Pms cramps are lighter and different this month. Also having pain below my ribs. Never had sex so pregnancy unlikely. What is causing this?

Your history of no: sex is helpful in ruling out many pregnancy related problems that could cause this. Most commonly it due to a little more bleeding than normal when you ovulated. If it gets worse or you have nausea or vomiting, it could be from your GI tract(like gall bladder or appendicitis) and you would need to see a doctor ...Read more
