So my last period started May 30th and lasted about 4 days. Me and my hubby had sex on the 6th with no protection. Then a week later i started having a little cramping along with feeling sick off and on. My boobs also feel heavy an sore at times. I have a 22 month old and a 6 month old. So im really hoping im not preggo. I thought right after a period u werent fertile. I took a test yesturday it came back neg but its also to soon. let me know what you think.

You were not in your fertile period yet more than likely. You were only on Cycle Day 8 when you had sex w/out protection. When your fertile period is depends on how long your cycle is but even if you have a 28 day cycle your fertile window would not have been until CD10-CD15 if you O on CD14. Now if you O'd early (which does happen) then there could be a small chance of pregnancy. But feeling those kinds of symptoms only a week after having sex and them being pregnancy related is a small chance as well. I say wait until your period is late and test again.

I agree that you probably weren't in your fertile period when you had sex, but sperm can live inside a woman for about 5 days, which means the sperm could have been there when you did ovulate if you ovulated early. I'd wait until you are actually late to retest though because it could still be to early for a HPT to come up positive if you are pregnant. I hope things work out for you though. Good luck!
