I had sex 10/27 and my period was due 10/28. The condom broke but he did pull out. Its been 6 days and my period still hasn't arrived. No cramps and no other symptoms of being either pregnant or having a period. I've been stressed recently with school and that could be a reason it's late. My periods are at most 3 days late (after 28 days). I have yellowish brown discharge. Could I be pregnant? Should I test? I am very worried.

Hi.
I had unprotected sex 5days before my period was due. I stopped half way during it as I didn't felt uncomfortable and he said he didn't cum so it was fine. But I normally have a very accurate period and I'm 2 days late. Should I be worried ? I have also been on antibiotics during this time.

Hello
Some antibiotics can interfere with the menstrual cycle - or the condition itself (that caused you to need the medication).
A pregnancy test would be accurate now if you want to rule it out.

My cycle is very regular, I was expecting my period around September 20th but it never showed. My husband and I has sex on September 26th and it's now October 6th, still no period but home pregnancy test keeping coming up negative. I feel like I've had a few symptoms but nothing major so I'm worried it's in my head. Should I go see a dr at this point or keep waiting and testing at home every few days? The suspense is killing me!!!!

Hello Anon

If your tests are negative, it's not likely you are pregnant - your hormones may be imbalanced. But see your doctor if you don't get your period in the next few days - a blood pregnancy test may be ordered. Although very unusual, some women don't show up pregnant on urine tests.
Best,
Susan

I am currently 7 weeks with baby #3. Don't test test unless you're a week or more later. Also ladies you can not get pregnant 3 days before your period. Your body will feel different if your pregnant and let you know.

I had sex last night (not going to do it again with the guy bc I realized I don't have sexual connection with him). We used a condom, it didn't break or anything. I plan on taking plan B later on today. During this upcoming weekend, I'm going on a cruise with friends and will probably engage in sexual activity. If I use plan B for this guy, then my period is delayed then I have sex with a different guy, is it possible I'd be pregnant from the first guy or the second? Like if I do engage in sexual activity on the boat, I'll be using a condom.I'm sorry this is so awkward, I tried google & I was thinking of asking one of my friends but she'd want to know the guy etc & honestly it's not exactly her business.
