Hi, I am still waiting for my period. It was supposed be here on the 8th. And still nothing. I had spotting Oct 27 until November 3. I have had all neg. I switched from patch to pill in Oct. I still had patch in my system for two more days. I was told to take pill and I'd be fine. I had sex, with no condom because I rash and get uti afterwards. Am I pregnant?

Hello Currypowder,

At this point, contact your gynecologist, who can order a blood pregnancy test, tests to check your hormone levels, and can prescribe antibiotics to treat your UTI.

I last got my period on 6 October - today is my the 20 and I have not got my next cycle. I have done a home pregnancy test this morning and it is negative and did a blood test today and it also came out negative. But I am having what is normally associated as early pregnancy signs: nausea, lower abdomen cramps, high sense of smell ,tiredness, enjoy food that I normally don't like.. what might be the cause. It is still early to detect on whether I am pregnant or not or am I stressed. Please advise. Anonymous

Hi Anon!

No, a test would be accurate by now and certainly a blood test. PMS symptoms are very similar to early pregnancy symptoms so this could mean your period is on it's way. Your period may be late due to a hormonal shift, stress or other factors.

Hi Anon

It's possible, if you were not using protection. A pregnancy test would be accurate by now.
Good luck!

I am currently 13 days late on my period. My boyfriend and I have unprotected sex regularly but he always uses the "pull out" method. Except for one day. I was worried i check my ovulation calendar and the day it happened happen to be one of my very fertile days. I have a 28-30 day cycle never more or less. I started spotting 8days before my period was due. Bleeding lasted 4 days and was only visible after wiping. I looked up and it appered to be implantation bleeding. I have tested about 10 times with all types of pregnancy test they are all negative. Now im almost guessing that i can just be stressing myself out and its setting back my period. What are the chances of me being pregnant at this point if I keep testing negative. I tested today 13 days late.

Hello Anonymous,

Stress can certainly cause a delay in the start of your period.

However, the "pull out" method is a very unreliable form of birth control. Having unprotected intercourse on your "fertile" days certainly can lead to pregnancy.

At this point, why not just wait and see what happens. If you do not have a normal menstrual flow in the next two weeks, contact your gynecologist. A blood hCG test may be recommended.
