hi! its been 3years that i have a regular period. i and my boyfriend is a bit active on sex for a year now but my bf do withdrawal all the time, he never came inside. I was supposed to be due on my period last july 15 to 17 cos last month i had my period on june 17. I am almost a week delayed but i had the exact pms symptoms, i know that cos i do regularly have pms every month like abdominal cramping and sore boobs which are only episodes since i turned 20yo. i am a bit worried that i still dont have my period now and paranoid that i am pregnant. There is also a time that i felt like i do have period but when i looked my undies theres no blood.... should i wait til the end of the month or take a pregnancy test now? thanks!

Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

If your menstrual cycle normally comes on the 17th and you are feeling PMS symptoms, but just no sign of blood, it is likely that your period is just late. Give it at least 14 days before you take a home pregnancy test . That will be enough time for hcg (a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin) to show up in your urine.

I hope this helps.
Be well,
