Is pelvic pressure a sign of early pregnancy?


Almost 4 weeks ago, I had a sexual experience with my bf. We did not have penetrative sex, but we did intimately touch and it was during my ovulation week. I'm not sure if there were sexual fluids or not on his fingers.

Logically I understand that fingering has a theoretical risk of causing pregnancy but the chances are low. However I have been feeling a pressure/crampy feeling in my uterus for the last 3 weeks and it's really making me feel anxious. I also have fewer bowel movements.

Two days before my expected period I bled, but it wasn't as usual. It wasn't has heavy has a period but in the two days that I did bleed there was quite a bit of blood to pass it off as spotting. My periods are usually short, three or four days at most, so I'm confused as to whether or not it was my period.

Three weeks after sexual exposure, at 17 days after ovulation I took a home pregnancy test and it came out negative. This morning at 22 days passed ovulation I took another home pregnancy test and it says negative.

Any insight as to why I have this heavy/bloated feeling? Did I test too early? So confused as to what to believe.

You would have had a positive test by now. You did not have a serious exposure.  You have no list of early pregnancy signs. You could wait to see if your body sorts itself with your next period, or have a clinic / doctor take a look sooner.
