ask: Could I be pregnant or is it just not time for my period yet??

**PLEASE READ ENTIRELY BEFORE ANSWERING**
My last period was the 4th of January. My next period should have been on the 6th of Febuary. Here we are at the 8th of Feb and no period. I had sex on and off through the month of January and unprotected sex on the morning of the 30th so roughly 7 sex days before my expected period. I HIGHLY doubt pregnancy but my breast are sore and I am having some white creamy discharge every day the amount varies though. Is it more likely my PCOS is screwing with my cycle or is there a possibility of pregnancy? I've been working on losing weight and I have lost 5 pounds so far not enough to screw with my cycle, right?

I use Fertility Friend and MyMonthlyCycles to track my cycles. I have just started using FF last month but I have been using MMC for about 2 or 3 years. FF had me due for AF on the 6th and MMC has me due for AF on the 16th. So far FF is wrong. Maybe MMC is right? The preferences on my MMC is off by a bit and its never accurate lol but I track my cycles on it anyways and just go 33 days past that date and I usually get AF on the 33rd or 34th day.

Also, if AF is coming next week on the 16th as predicted on MMC then that means I am in the TTW and I possibly could have been ovulating last week which means I could be pregnant right?

My last couple of cycles were: 10/2/12, 11/4/12, 12/2/12, 1/4/13. Any advice? Also, I'm on an antibiotic for a cold Clarithromycin. Anyone know anything about whether this could delay a period? Thanks.

Hi Angelwings23,

Thank you for your question. You have a lot going on with trying to lose weight, stressing about trying to get pregnant and all these things could honestly delay your period. Weight loss is probably one of the most common reasons why periods are delayed. If you workout, change your diet, etc...this will certainly delay a period. Athletes are well known for missing periods for months.

 

So with this said, the best thing for you to do is wait at least until your period has been delayed at least 8-10 days and then take a pregnancy test. If you start your period, this is an obvious sign that you are not pregnant - so keep trying. However, you seem to be doing your homework on your ovulation so I have sure in no time - you will find yourself pregnant. Be certain to try and keep your stress levels down.

 

Good luck,

Missie

Thanks miscortes for reading and replying to my question. I also appreciate you taking the time to read it fully. I didn't know losing weight even as little as 5 pounds could delay your periods. I usually flucuate those 5 pounds often.
Thanks again for the advice and commenting.
