The last time I had sex was on 12/20/11. It was unprotected. I didn't think I was pregnant because I think I had my period, on 01/06/12. It was a week late than usual. I am trying to remember how long was my period and if it was heavy. Because I forgot to log it down on my menstrual app calendar. But I'm assuming it was 5 days as usual. Now it is 02/11/12 and no signs of my period. I taught I was just going to be late again, but calculating from the calendar, I feel like it is very late. I have took a pregnancy test at home last month and just 3 days ago. It came out negative. I haven't seen a doctor yet.

Hey, its me again. I am not pregnant. I got my period after the 45th day. I got an STD check, and I'm just waiting for results. Planning on going on birth control again, to regulate my period normally. Is that a good idea?

Hello Anon,

If you had your period in January and you recently had a negative pregnancy test then you are not pregnant. Trimethoprim will not affect your pregnancy test results. You should, however, see your OB/GYN if you have never had irregular periods and you are now more than one month late. 

Please keep us updated,

Hi, it is me who asked the question, I am new at this.
but, just wanted to add that I am currently under trimethoprim for my acne. I have been taking this medication for a year now because I would take it irregular. I saw that if I am pregnant I should stop taking this medication immediately. But I still am currently taking it. Was wondering if taking these pills affect my test results or could result in missed or very late periods? Please help me!
