I may just be being paranoid but I can't tell

Hello. So it's a bit of a long story but I shall start at the beginning. My cycle tends to be rather irregular where one month it'll be 27 days and another month it'll be 28. So it's tough for me to tell whether I'm actually late or just being paranoid. Now my last period started on the 2nd of October and if it's 27 days I should've started my next period today but then again i could start tomorrow. Normally I don't fuss much about being a day late but I had unprotected sex on the 15th. My symptoms started to flare up most today where my back is so painful and my boobs are more sore than they've ever been when I've been on a period. They look and feel bigger but then again I could just be imagining things. I felt too sick to eat breakfast this morning. I had a biggish lunch but threw that all up and for dinner I picked at a salad. I've hardly had any fluids as I can't handle anything I normally like drinking. And then even the smell of cooked food made me feel so nauseated. I'm actually in hospital at the moment and I had a test done 2 days ago that was negative and another today with the same result but I'm still not convinced. Am I just being overly paranoid or would it be worth pestering the nurses for another test tomorrow perhaps? Thanks

since it has only been two weeks since the unprotected sex it may be just to early for a pregnancy test to pick up the pregnant hormone, it is best to wait at least 3 weeks after unprotected sex, my advice is wait that extra week and see what happens if your period comes then you no the answer if it does not take a test a week from today and at that point should be accurate

Thank you for your reply. I've actually started my period today and I'm crossing my fingers that it carries through for the normal 5 days as I know some preganant people experience a period for 2 days and it suddenly stops. Although I've noticed that my period isn't as heavy as it usually is either. These symptoms im Experiencing are probably part of my period but I've never had such intense pms and pains during a period. I've been sick again today and I'm so sensitive to smells too. I had a look at my breasts this morning and my nipples are very brown. It really feels like my hormones are all over the place, more so than usual. But I guess it's just a matter of waiting things out. I'm actually really impressed that my cycle has been bang on 28 days this time. It's been a while since thats happened.
