Hi. My name is Lauren i have a missed period today counting day 14 of missed period. Last month i had sex 3 times with my boyfriend 2 of them were just before my period shud have started. And during the time i shud have ovulated or little before ovulation i had a terrible flu for 5 days and temperature 38.7 and was in bed for 5 days. And then at the time my period shud have started had 3 days of brown spotting and then nothing. We always used protection. Had 2 pregnancy tests and they both came back negative. One was when my period was 3 days late and other when 11 days late. And both came back negative i dont have any pregnancy symptops everythings seems to be normal the only thing is the missed period. Have an appointment 3 days from now for blood test. And doing one more home pregnancy test today. Im really scared that something is wrong but my intuition says that im not pregnant. Please answear because im stresing myself out...

Hello Lauren,

It is very likely that being ill with a fever is the reason your period is late. If you plan to repeat the pregnancy test, test in the morning. Use the urine when you first wake up. It is concentrated and will give the most accurate result.

I am glad you have a scheduled appointment. A blood pregnancy test is more accurate than the urine test.

Hi Lauren,

Best not to jump to any assumptions and wait until you have seen your gynecologist.

Hello allistairzane,

You mention having sex on December 4, but did get your period, though late. You mention being late again, in January, but did get a period. Right?

If you have gotten your period each month after having sex, then you would not be pregnant.

I didn't have sex for 8 years. Then I had one time sex with my bf last Dec. 15, 2016. My last period before having sex was Dec. 1st. My next cycle was supposed to be on Dec. 29th, but didn't come. January 12, and 13, 2017, I had very light pinkish/brownish spotting, which I thought was Implantion Bleeding. Then on the 14th I had bright red bleeding in the afternoon with a small clot. Then today, Jan. 15th, when I woke up at 6:30am, I didn't bleed until later today. But it looks like a regular menstruation. I've had 4 different HPTs and all were BFN. My symptoms were like with my first child, just feeling sleepy and back ache. But this time, I just wake up in the morning and it varies like 1am, 3am, 4am, etc.

Could I still be pregnant at 46? Or is it because I haven't had sex for a long time prior to this one?

Thank you in advance for any info!

Hello Anonymous,

Yes, you could still get pregnant at age 46 if you are still having a monthly period. It does not matter that you had not had intercourse for eight years.

From what you have shared, it is possible that you did become pregnant and the spotting was implantation bleeding.

It is possible that the bleeding with small clot is indicative that you lost this early pregnancy. You could reach out to your gynecologist.

Hello allistairzane,

Your last period showed you that you were not pregnant. Try to relax and wait for your period to start in the next few days.
