is it possible to get prego, with a tiny bit of semen during your fertile window? about 3 times...? i am expected to get my period on august 10th and purchased a 6 day sooner pregnancy test, took 1 today (8/6/18) in the afternoon and was negative. So will it most likely be negative still if i take it 1 day after my expected period date? considering its supposed to predict it "6 days sooner"?

I am frustrated I don’t know where to post this as far as I know I am not pregnant. I was suppose to get my period this month on the 9th I started spotting on the 8th but didn’t get a heavy flow I kept spotting. I did get one day of a heavy flow not sure if it was af or bleeding from the colposcopy the day after I stopped bleeding period. I have been running to the bathroom constantly I have been dealing with bad indigestion sore leaky nipples. I am 20 days late. Here and there I feel like I am going to puke it doesn’t last long. I have done every possible pregnacy test and they all came back negative. I been to the er told them everything they did another pregnacy test which came back neg and I am still waiting for other test results. But I am at loss on not knowing what’s going on I feel like I am pregnant least my body feels that way. But I am out of answers. Has anyone else been through this? I am 25
