norealname :  the likelihood you are pregnant, having a negative pregnancy test 13 days post intercourse (especially since said intercourse included no actual ejaculation..) is sooooooooooooooooooo low. 

Test again in a week if your period hasn’t arrived, by all means, but if I were to put money on it I’d say you’re not pregnant.

Wait, so he didn’t ejaculate inside you without protection? And your test came back negative?

Girl, you’re not pregnant. But please go look into getting an IUD so this doesn’t happen again.

Maybe I missed it but why not use birth control of some form if you don’t want to be pregnant. 

And no, not everyone has had unprotected sex when they didn’t want a child. If you don’t want to use a condom and are in a steady relationship then cool, but use a back up method.

No, pre cum does not contain live sperm, just a myth. Sounds like you’re fine. Polycystic ovaries can cause delayed periods, I would not worry about it too much especially if you had a negative pregnancy test. Just relax and use better birth control next time.

norealname :  pulling out is pretty effective, similar in effectiveness to condoms (a bit less than condoms). My husband and I used it for over a year in between my kids and I got pregnant with both as soon as we didn’t pull out.  It’s pretty effective if done correctly, but nowhere near as effective as other methods.  If I was in no shape to have an oops pregnancy, I’d be on a more effective form of birth control- birth control pill or IUD.  Currently I have a mirena and I love it because I don’t get a period.  Then you don’t have to worry about or use condoms in a monogamous relationship.

norealname :  You say your doctor mentioned your ovary is “polycystic”.  Did he/she actually diagnose you with PCOS?  It seems you need to follow up with your doctor as you’re clearly concerned about symptoms you are experiencing.

Here is a quick copy and paste of some (but not all) common symptoms associated with PCOS. 

Get on a phone and cal your doctor!

Irregular menstrual cycle. Women with PCOS may miss periods or have fewer periods (fewer than eight in a year). Or, their periods may come every 21 days or more often. Some women with PCOS stop having menstrual periods.

Too much hair on the face, chin, or parts of the body where men usually have hair. This is called “hirsutism.” Hirsutism affects up to 70% of women with PCOS.<sup>3</sup>

Acne on the face, chest, and upper back

Thinning hair or hair loss on the scalp; male-pattern baldness

Weight gain or difficulty losing weight

Darkening of skin, particularly along neck creases, in the groin, and underneath breasts

Skin tags, which are small excess flaps of skin in the armpits or neck area

And a second list of symtoms from another source.  Take note of pelvic pain.

Fatigue. Many women with PCOS report increased fatigue and low energy. Related issues such as poor sleep may contribute to the feeling of fatigue.

Infertility. PCOS is a leading cause of female infertility. However, not every woman with PCOS is the same. Although some women may need the assistance of fertility treatments, others are able to conceive naturally.

Mood changes. Having PCOS can increase the likelihood of mood swings, depression, and anxiety.

Pelvic pain. Pelvic pain may occur with periods, along with heavy bleeding. It may also occur when a woman isn’t bleeding.

Headaches. Hormonal changes prompt headaches.

Sleep problems. Women with PCOS often report problems such as insomnia or poor sleep. There are many factors that can affect sleep, but PCOS has been linked to a sleep disorder called sleep apnea.  With sleep apnea, a person will stop breathing for short periods of time during sleep.

norealname :  Irregular periods is odd. I’d go back to your doctor to discuss your concerns or see another doctor for a second opinion. I do believe you are experiencing a hormonal imbalance but concerns for pregnancy seem unfounded.

Notice in the list above I put in bold symptoms you are experiencing that are apart of PCOS.

Increased anxiety, irregular periods, possible pelvic pain.

norealname :  I get period cramps about a week before my period is due, usually right after I pee. So i would say it’s normal.
