Stressed or pregnant?

By Anonymous October 19, 2011 - 7:00pm

Last month my period was three days early and unusually light. I've had sex in the past week and a half, unprotected. My period is two days late, and I'm not experiencing my normal pre-period symptoms. I just feel an odd pressure in my stomach/lower ab region.
I have been somewhat stressed lately with classes and work, but nothing too out of the ordinary.
Is my period just irregular lately, or is it possible to have gotten pregnant? I thought it would be too early to tell, but now I'm nervous which, I'm sure, is making it worse.

Hi Anonymous,

Thank you for your post! While it could definitely be stress, you can take a pregnancy test if you'd like. If you don't want to spend money and then get your period two days later then wait until the week is over and then if you still have no signs of a period take a test. Try not to stress out about this.
