Unprotected sex followed by two periods and missed third

Resolved Question:

I was wondering if you could help me? Around 7 months ago I had unprotected penetration for a couple of seconds and since then I have been extremely paranoid that I am pregnant. My first teo periods came normally but then I missed my 3rd month one, which is highly unlikely for me. I did a pregnancy test and it came back negative and then a few weeks later it came but it was lighter. I've had all of my periods since then apart from this month's. I've had a constant dull ache on my left side and it's been investigated too. I had a pelvic ultra sound which apparently showed that my ovaries were normal and my uterus was normal too. I also had a blood pregancy test which came back negative. I think I have done around 20 urine blood tests and those include 3 done at the soctor's clinic. As you can probably tell, I am extremely anxious that my period is irregular again and I just want to know really if I could be pregnant? Surely a pelvic ultrasound would pick up a foeutus if it was done around the 5/6 month mark?

Thanks for your consult at

Yes, you are being paranoid. Take my word for it. 20 negative pregnancy tests in itself is sufficient evidence to rule out a pregnancy.

An ultrasound can pick up even 5 - 6 weeks of pregnancy, so yes, a 5 - 6 month old fetus would never be missed ! At 5 - 6 months, you would start showing also , and be able to perceive fetal movements too. Do not worry at all.

A lighter period once in a while is normal, all the rest of them have been on schedule for you.

A dull ache could be a mild infection / muscle sprain.

Please stop being paranoid now. You are NOT pregnant.
Hope that helps, coming from a professional.

All the best.
Please feel free to discuss further.

Thank you! I thought I wasn't and then stupidly typed things into google and all sorts of horror stories of people having numerous tests and then having a baby on the toilet popped up! If my uterus was somehow retroverted, I'm assuming that the scan at that pojnt would still show a foetus? Thanks so much!

Hello again.
Yes, even a retroverted uterus would DEFINITELY show up a baby at 5 to 6 months !
Take care
