Hello Anonymous,

Give your gynecologist a call. You might need to have a blood pregnancy test done. You have had the symptoms of early pregnancy again as with your two previous pregnancy, you missed a period for July and have had intermittent spotting. This needs to be evaluated by your doctor.
Please keep us updated.

My last period was on 22 April and I last had sex on 15th April. I am 17 days overdue for my period, it being 10th June today. Is there any possibility that I can be pregnant? I usually get quite heavy flow but the last period was lighter than usual.

Hey ladies, my name is Autumn. I've been really trying to figure this out but it's so hard to do on my own.... My bf & I have been having unprotected sex since we met in October. 5, 2012. Okay, here is the BIG question... I took a a home pregnancy test one in the after noon that came back negative, I was really bummed out. So I decided to take another one first thing in the morning. I swear ladies my test came back positive! I have missed my period this month & everything! As I remind you my first test was negative. Crazy? I looked it up best way to go is first thing in the MORNING! Also, going to my baby doctor appointment in the morning. very excited, anyways I just thought I'd share with y'all also. Good luck! Wish me LUCK my fingers are crossed ladies!!!!! (:

My last period was April 20 - April 24 exact. First time I've ever been able to track my period due to the fact I've always had irregular periods. The same day my period ended we had sex and then also had sex on my fertile day which was 2 days before my ovulating day. I'm currently 16 days late. I would ignore it since I've always been irregular and never been able to track my period or ovulation. But because now I'm spotting (that's never ever happened before) I'm concerned that I just may be pregnant. Help!!

My period is 16 days late. I've never has sex before or played around with a guy. What is causing this?

Hello Anonymous,

Stress could be a likely reason. High levels of stress, particularly during ovulation, can cause a period to be late. Blame it on cortisol.

Also, traveling, illness, excessive exercising, such as training for a marathon, or excessive weight gain or loss can cause a period to be late.

Try to relax. It will come.
