Hello Anne,


If you had unprotected sex in the last month, then chances are high that you are pregnant but had a false negative test. Please repeat the test after 7 days of the date the period was due. This will give you a more accurate result. Alternatively, you can get a blood test done.


I hope this helps.

But it was precum will it be ok

Yes, you can still get pregnant with precum.


If the pregnancy test after 1 week is negative, then you are not pregnant and the less flow was probably due to some other cause like stress etc. You will then probably get a normal period within the next month.
