I am 24 days late for my period. We always use condoms. I haven't been in a lot of stress, could I be this late?

I had 2 kids around the ages 20 and 21. Now I am almost 30. My bf and I always use condoms, im pretty sure it never broke. Every day I have been feeling symptoms of starting my period but it hasn't came.I am now 24 days late. I took 2 pregnancy test and they both were negative.. I am not sure what's going on, could I be pregnant, our could it just be this late? I really haven't been under stress, but I did move cities and im not sure if that kind of change can make your period hold.. I don't want to jump to conclusions and be wrong..

Thank you for your response. I Am at 29 days and still no period. I really don't think I am pregnant, but I smoke and would like to stop if iam. I called to make a dr appt and found out my insurance is currently expired.
I remember it taking a while with my other two daughters to show up on a test that I was pregnant.
I was also reading about phantom pregnancy and don't want to do that to myself.. I guess ill try another test this week and see what happens.

Hello Anonymous,

Readjusting from a recent move could be the reason your period is late.
You could always call your gynecologist to schedule a blood pregnancy test or visit a Planned Parenthood clinic near you.

If you would rather wait a little bit longer, say until a full month has passed, that is your choice.
