Hi, I had unprotected sex on the 8 & 10th october and had my period on the 11th oct lasted for 6days which is normal. My period has always been regular throughout the year but the last three month the cycle gets longer, from 28days to 30-31days. Now for November my period is late ! It is day 34 and no sign of getting my period. Did a home pregnancy test (2times) which came out negative on day 30 n 31. I am worried could I still be pregnant, no symptoms of pregnancy no tender breast whatnot like i read on the net..but im anxious and worried!

Dear Anon,

Thanks for reaching out to the EmpowHer community.
Keep in mind, anytime you have unprotected sex, you risk getting pregnant. If this is not desired, you should look into some form of birth control. It's likely you are not pregnant based on what you told me. There are many reasons why you may be late. Stress or illness, hormonal imbalance. Take another test in a week or two just to be safe. Below is a link to the Birth Control Center. I think you will find this a good resource.

I hope this information has helped.

Thank you for your advice. Learned my lesson now, will consider birth control / morning after pills in the future. The anxiety is too much this time around I dont know why.. btw im overweight and been trying to lose more weight but end up being on-off the diet n exercise. I hope its the hormone and the stress; this month i have many pimples popping up near my jawline too..which dont always happen. I cant shake the thoughts of i might be pregnant is making me anxious for my period to come outttt...

To ease your mind, you can take a pregnancy test. Sometimes we just need that reassurance! Good luck. I hope my information has helped you.

Hello again,
If your test came out negative, it's unlikely you are pregnant and your period is simply late. It might be a waiting game at this point. You always have the option to retest in a week or two if you are still not convinced of the negative result.

Best,
Helena
