Hi everyone. I’m posting this here as I really need some help to put my mind at calm. I have recently started being sexually active and it is giving me so much anxiety and fear of possible pregnancy. I had used a condom every time I had sex and tried to avoid having sex on my ovulation/fertile days (if I counted it correctly). I also have been getting my periods regularly in a quite normal flow. But after reading about cryptic pregnancies I just can’t calm myself and I worry about being pregnant and not knowing about it (like in the “I didn’t know I was pregnant”?). I also took around 5 home pregnancy tests and they were all negative but I read that sometimes your body doesn’t produce enough hormones for the tests to detect even if you’re pregnant? Like I said this gives me so much stress that it interferes with my daily life and studying. It makes me google every symptom like occasional nausea or heartbeat in my abdomen etc. and it freaks me out so much. I know for sure I don’t ever want kids and pregnancy would be the worst thing now. I also assume that this fear might be because I’m from a conservative country where sex is a taboo and I might have this subconscious guilt about it. I really need some advice on how to cope with this. If I used a condom every time and got my periods regularly I’m fine right? Thank you
