Had sex on the day of my ovulation. Week later started getting sick in the stomach that would come and go, aches in my back, fatigue and going to the bathroom more frequently. Just got my period which was four days late but not a heavy one with no clotting. Pregnancy test came back negative. Can I be pregnant?

What you describe actually sounds like you got pregnant and had a very early miscarriage. A lot of miscarriages happen just a few days or a week after conception before a pregnancy is confirmed, and just look like weird periods.

Sometimes it can take quite awhile for the pregnancy hormone to build up enough in your urine for you to test positive, but four or five days past the regular start of your period should be long enough. That said, if your pregnancy symptoms persist do another pregnancy or go to your doctor for a blood test.
