Hello everyone, i'm really needing some advice.

My boyfriend has been away for work so we've been doing long distance. He just came home on leave March 4-17 and I usually start my period around the 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th of each month... Well we were having lots of sex while he was home and we had unprotected sex two different times. Let me first state that I am on birth control pills and we used condoms most of the other times. The first time we had unprotected sex... he finished inside me and it was Wednesday March 9th the day when my period was supposed to start, and the next day we went and got the morning after pill. On the morning after pill instruction paper the side effects were only supposed to last a few days and it said you period could be abnormal but it should start no later than a week after its expected date. Even after a week my period still hadn't started. Then we had unprotected sex March 16th and he also finished inside me again but we didn't go get the morning after pill this time. The next day I felt fine all day until late that night my stomach started hurting and I threw up randomly a couple times but felt fine the next day. Also March 8th I started having breast pain which I thought was normal before my period starts. Now its March 23rd and my period is 15 days late, i've been having lots of symptoms such as: Breast tenderness, cramps but they don't feel like period cramps, lower back pain, i've been sort of emotional, fatigue,greater sense of smell, craving different foods that I normally don't crave, i've just sort of felt kind of weird, also yesterday march 22 I noticed what looked like very light spotting which I wasn't sure if it even was because it was so very very light and not really much was there. I took a First Response pregnancy test Tuesday March 14 and it was negative then another one Thursday march 16th and it was negative also and then one more Saturday march 18th and it was negative. I plan to take another one hopefully sometime this week and see if its any different. Do you think that I could be pregnant? or what do you think is going on?

Hello Anon

There is no risk of pregnancy since you are on the birth control pill. You will not get pregnant when you take it as prescribed.

Your symptoms are due to taking unnecessary emergency birth control and it can cause your cycle to change. Taking it doesn't mean you will bleed.

Your cycle will return to normal within the next month - pregnancy should not be a concern. Don't take EC again while on the Pill.

Hello Danica,

If you have been testing in the morning and tested once your period was late by at least one week, then you can accept the results.

Levels of hCG can be detected in urine about 12 to 14 days following conception.

If you do not get your period, please contact your gynecologist who can order a blood pregnancy test.

Wishing you the best,
Maryann

Hello Anon

It's a good idea to take another test. If it is negative, talk to your doctor about why your period is so delayed - you may have a hormonal imbalance.
Best,

If you're having sex for the first time, you can be late. I was 13 days late after I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend. Your body goes through changes. It's normal. But use protection! There's no point stressing unnecessarily. Also, the more you stress, the later it will get!

Hello Anon

Since your tests are negative then it's not likely you're pregnant. Hormonal imbalances can cause changes in the menstrual cycle. For reassurance, I think it's a good idea to have a blood test at the doctor's office.

While rare, some women don't show up positive on urine tests when they are in fact, pregnant.
