Panicked could i be preggers
my bf and i have sex about 2-3 times a week depending on how often we are together, anywhoo the other day we had sex and i noticed after that there was a little blood on my panty, i freaked out, cos this is obviously not normal, so i went to the doc and he did a urinalysis which turned out that i have a urinary tract infection, he also requested that i have blood taken and have it tested for pregnancy, the nurse did not draw any blood but gave me negative result. i went for a follow up for the UTI, the infection is still there so my pp was sent to a lab i' m awaiting the results which i get on Thursday, however since yesterday i notoced light pink mucus discharge, i am on yasmin birth control, i' m on my 4th inactive pill and still no period.

Did the nurse just guess if i was preggers or not or did she test my urine.

I don't know what the nurse did but a pregnancy test would not be positive before you missed a period. If your period does not start in the next 3 days, have a pregnancy test done.
