Does my hormonal imbalance throw off the accuracy of a pregnancy test? #737/7

Okay, I am had my period and I did not know I was about to come on my period. My boyfriend and I  had unprotected intercourse. He ejaculated in me and then later on in the day we had unprotected sex again and then he ejaculated inside me again. We are having unprotected sex everyday and he always ejaculates inside me.

I would take a pregnancy test but there is a hormonal imbalance, meaning I will not know if I am pregnant until I am about 5 or 6 months. If I am pregnant now, I will be about 2 or 3 months. My boyfriend tells me not think about it but I take two pregnancy pills and eat. I have the signs that I am pregnant. I have sickness at night and sometimes in the morning. My boyfriend said he can have kids and that I was his first girl. I took his virginity a year ago.

So, could I be pregnant? My stomach is getting bigger and people (people that have had 5 to 8 children) are saying they know that I am pregnant and that I am about 2 or 3 months. My breasts hurts so badly and I feel some thing moving in my stomach. I think I feel kicks at the lower of my stomach. I crave things and if I do not get them, I will cry. My stomach is so hard.

Please help me. I want to know!!

Thank you!

To review: you and your boyfriend had unprotected sex twice on the same day.  You are having unprotected sex just about every day.  He always comes inside you.  You are thinking that a hormone imbalance will make pregnancy test incorrect, meaning that you will not know if you are pregnant until about 5 or 6 months.

            You are having some signs of pregnancy, sickness at night and sometimes in the morning.  So far as you know your boyfriend is fertile (can have kids).

            So, you want to know: Could I be pregnant?  Your stomach is getting bigger and people are saying that they know that you are pregnant.  Your breasts hurt a lot and you think you feel movement in your stomach and that you feel kicks.

            You want to be pregnant very much, if I understand you correctly.


Well, it does sound as though you are pregnant.  Your hormonal imbalance will NOT throw off the accuracy of a pregnancy test. 

Go see the person who will be following you if you are pregnant right away and good luck.
