I don't know if I'm pregnant, I'm not very irregular but missed my period this month.

I had a period on the 5th of April and haven't gotten another one this month. I never have a missed period unless I'm pregnant. In this case, my tests keep coming back negative and I don't know if I could be or not.

Hi Anonymous-

Did you have unprotected sex? Do you normally use birth control, or are you trying to get pregnant? You don't say how old you are, but that can be a factor in irregular periods.

Since you are not very late yet, it could be just the stress of worrying about it that is making you late. Stress can have a strong effect on the menstrual cycle, as can diet, exercise and many other things.

Many pregnancy tests say you can use them about 10-14 days after the unprotected sex took place. You have to read the package, because they are all a little different.

We get a lot of questions like yours, so you are not alone: http://www.empowher.com/condition/menstrual-cycle Maybe reading some of the other discussions will help you. If we can help further, please write again with more detail.

Good luck.
