Hi Anon


The good news is that if you are getting a negative pregnancy test on day 37, it's very unlikely that you're pregnant.

Your diet may have impacted your cycle but since you are irregular anyway, then being two days over your usual 35-ish is not too worrisome. Condoms, when used exactly as instructed, are about 95-98% effective. Do you check to see if they broke, after sex? Breakage is uncommon, but it happens and checking a condom after sex is a good habit to get into.

You could always go and get a blood test done - this will absolutely tell you if you're pregnant or not, but a negative result on day 37 is a pretty good sign that you are annoyingly irregular, not pregnant!

How old are you, Anon?
