Doctor :   Hello, thanks for contacting askthedoctor.com If you have had unprotected sex in 3 days after your menses stopped 3 weeks back , then you were in your safe period when you had sex and ovulation had not occurred and unlikely that you would get pregnant. However there is no linea nigra formation over the abdomen, it is seen only in the early second trimester of pregnancy. Thirdly the bleach test you did for pregnancy is not heard of and is not specific for beta hcg at all. As your bleeding has also started , in congruence with the premenstrual symptoms of mood swings, sleep, stomach cramps ( they mimic pregnancy), the chances f conception are negligible. However you may perform a serum beta hcg test to rule out pregnancy which is very sensitive. A raised value o fthe test would indicate pregnancy. I hope i have answered your query in detail, wishing you good health, regards
