Hey if someone can help me out that would be great. I had sex on the last 2 days (20-21 September) of my period where he came inside both times, since last Monday (3rd October) I have had period like pains that are now just slight cramps in the pelvic region the pains are really bad when I exercise and I've been very thirsty, I have random nausea and back ache. My doctor told me I have gastro but I know it is not that. I had a blood test done on Saturday morning (8th October) and it came back negative all the while I am still having these symptoms, could it have been too early even for a blood test? Last night (10th october) he came inside me again, I am 4-11 days away from my period so if I am not already pregnant could I get pregnant this close to my period?
