Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.

That woudl be possible, but if you are pregnant, the pregnancy test would be positive.

And, if you are not having a period and the pregnancy test is negative, this could be normal, this could be a thyroid condition, this could be stress/anxiety, and many other diagnosis that really are not concerning.

It fell out a few days before intercourse. Could this mean I'm pregnant?
Expert:  Dr. Owen replied 6 years ago.
You are asking a question that can only be answered with a pregnancy test.
And, you can to a pregnancy test 10 to 14 days after intercourse to check.
