4 days late.

ok, I'm new to this so please be patient with me.
I always have a 28 day cycle. This month I was 4 days late. I check my temps they were all higher than normal 98.7-99.2
I finally started bleeding but the part that is confusing me is the fact that my cervix is always low during af and ever since af was due (and late) I have been checking and it has stayed high and soft. I can't really tell if its open or not. but I know for a fact that this is not normal for me... the bleeding is medium and after a day and half of bleeding it has stopped all tog! so I never even bled for 2 days... just in need of some advise. not sure if I'm stressing over nothing or what. but I have taken a test. more like 10 and 3 came back positive but they were the blue dye and 1 frer. all the other were negative. even today. negative.

I'm just looking for some insight on if anybody has ever experienced this and came to have a bfp or if I am just being crazy.
the only thing that has been different is that I am more tired and have a loss of appetite (which could be due to stressing over this)
I have arranged for a pap but that wont be until the 17th which was the earliest they could get me in. Thanks in Advance.

we use the pull out method. not really ttc but also not to worried about preventing if you know what I mean. we have been married 9 years so we are about ready. so of course I'm sexually active. The reason I made the pap appointment is due to the fact that a couple years ago I had cysts on my ovaries. Figured that may be the problem with my cycle. Also, a couple days ago I got some stabbing pains in my stomach and lower pelvic area. the disappeared just as fast as they came were only there for a split second but they doubled me over. considering this is all unusual for me (only 24) I was considering all the possible things it could be. cysts, endo? but my mother also told me she could never get a positive hpt until she was 8 weeks. but sure why. took another test and still bfn. haven't had any symptoms other than hot flashes. so I'm sure its either just a weird cycle of something else is going on. just wanted opinions

Hi Anon

It could be cysts but as with the case of your mom, some women don't show up with a postitive pregnancy test for some time. Did you take another test?

The pullout method isn't super reliable but if you're ready for a baby that may come then pregnancy may be a nice surprise. Are you really 24 and married for 9 years?

Since you have experienced some sharp pains, make sure you mention it to your doctor. You may have a cyst that is causing this.

Hi Anon!

If you tested positive on some tests, I suggest you take a digital one to be perfectly clear as to whether you are pregnant or not. If you haven't been having unprotected sex then you have nothing to worry about.

I'm not sure why you have asked for a pap test - this generally checks for cervical health, STIs, cervical cancer etc. You may just have had an uneven month due to a change in body chemistry. Try not to worry about it too much!
