Hello, Ive been really worried for the past two wks. Worrying about being pregnant. At the end of almost every month I start to pay more attention to the coming of my period. I last had it may 28 and was supposed to get it at the end of june but is now the 9th of july. I am hoping is the stress and changes I've been having all in this month. I started getting back to working out at the begginning of the month. Then I had to plan a trip me and my family were going to take. The planning required booking the rental car, hotel and making sure we were going to have enough money for all. Then my car broke down sometime in the middle of the month. I will no longer put in extra money. So been carless since. Then we took a the trip hoping it would release some of the stress but it included some in the trip. A long drive by the way. So yes this is some of the stress I've been having and maybe I wouldn't be worried much if I knew there was no incident but there was one. One time after having sex my boyfriend who has a condom pulled away when done and then the condom went missing. He says he had it on when he came out but I'm afraid he is just saying that to not scare me. He assures me theres no way I can be pregnant because not once did he come inside me unprotected. I'm still very worried. Ive taken 3 tests all negative but wheres my period :'( Please help me

Thanks for your help. I'm thinking of doing that monday. Its never ever taken me this long to get my period. I was hoping to not have to consult to the doctor. I get scared just looking at the result of a home pregnancy test even worse to have to go to the doctor and wait for the results :(

Hi eternalangel - Yes, stress can affect your period. Hormones strongly influence menstrual cycles. When we are under a lot of stress, this can affect our hormone levels and therefore affect and even change cycles. There are even times when women have found their periods have actually stopped due to being very worried about being pregnant. If you remain extremely worried you may want to ask your doctor for a blood test to determine if you are pregnant.
