Hi, Missa here. Age 21

Just going to ask you if there's a bit possibility that I might just be 'late' and not pregnant. With 2 hpt turning negative. But been experiencing mild cramps since saturday (nov 22).

We did made the deed. Oct 11, then I've got my period oct 17, but it should be on the twelve. I'm on a 30-day regular. AF was quite heavy than normal.

Nov 7 and 14 - made the deed again. All in withdrawal method

This month, scheduled AF was nov 16. but I was shocked to get a single spot on nov 13. And still got no AF until now.

Kindly help, is there a possibility that I am not pregnant? With the symptoms of cramping, spotting, fatigue, food cravings and mood swings?

Please help me T,T

My lmp was on 10/16/14. I am now 15 days late. I have 2 children already and I recently miscarried on 9/2/14. I don't know if your more fertile after a miscarriage but I don't think my period is coming and I'm having pitting edema in my feet. Is this normal?

I was 31 wks pregnant when I went into labor at home at 2 in the morning on my bathroom floor on March 31st 2014. My husband helped me deliver our beautiful baby boy Abram. He died in my arms shortly after. When i finally got to the hospital i was hemmoraging and lost they thought they were going to loose me too. My husband watched as they used a crash cart to bring me back. Since then My husband and I have only been together once since then and im now 2 weeks late. Im not even close to be ok after burying my son. We have 4 boys 15; 13,9,5 1 daughter 8. It was traumatic fir them to have to hold him and say goodbye too. I dont want to get their hopes up too. My periods were normal after I gave birth. Why would I not start now. Im terrified I can't ever go through this again. 10 days after my son died my father passed away and last month my brother was found murdered stabbed to death. So my children have had to go to 3 funerals and loose very close family members in such a short time. Could the stress just now be effecting me? If it wasn't for my husband and kids I would forget my religion and do something selfish. I couldn't do that to them. Can you think of any other reason then being pregnant? Im mentally not ready ever to go through that again. Thank you.

Hello Anonymous,

My heart breaks to hear what you have endured. It seems so heavy a cross to bear. Hold on to your faith, your husband's enduring love, and keep before you your five children, who need you.

It is quite possible that stress is the reason your period is late to start. But, as difficult as it may be, you should take a home pregnancy test if you and your husband had intercourse since your last period.

Emotional and physical stress can affect the menstrual cycle and delay the period. Stress decreases hormone signals originating in the brain. This results in the failure of the ovary to release an egg. This causes an imbalance in the ovarian hormones estrogen and progesterone. The period may be delayed for a few days to a few weeks and may be heavy when it does occur.

We are here to help in any way,

Hello Anonymous,

Thank you for your question.

When was your period for November due to start? Are your menstrual cycles regular?

If you are late by at least one week, take a pregnancy test. Sperm are so tiny that they can only be seen under a microscope. You have no guarantee that there was not any live sperm when your boyfriend inserted his penis into your vagina. It only takes one sperm to become pregnant.

If you have a regular 28 to 30 day menstrual cycle, you were probably in your "fertile" period on October 18. The fertile period is between five days before and on the day of ovulation.

Hello Aasyesha,

You are over a month late in getting your period. Stress and extreme exercising can cause a delay. But, I think you need to be seen by either your primary care physician or your gynecologist.
