Well this is it... My last period came April 27th and ended on May 2nd. I had unprotected sex on May 4th, but took the morning after pill on May 6th. Now, on June 7th, no sign of an upcoming period has shown. Normally, my menstrual cycle is of 5 weeks (35 days aprox) and i´m starting to stress out, a lot. Feeling so much anxiety, some cramps, and various headaches. Could I be pregnant?

Hello Anonymous,
Pregnancy is ruled out. In addition to excessive stress as a contributing factor, a hormonal imbalance is a possibility.
The menstrual cycle is determined by a complex interaction of hormone. The predominant hormones involved are gonadotropin releasing hormone, which is secreted by the hypothalamus, follicle stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone, which are secreted by the anterior pituitary gland, and estrogen and progestin, which are secreted by the ovaries.

You might consider scheduling an appointment with your gynecologist.

Hello nervous,
Listen to your friends...relax. High levels of stress will cause your period to be late.

Thanks Maryann. I tried to relax a bit, but still uncapable I decided to take a blood test. It came out negative!!! HUGE sigh of relief. But still no period. Today is June 4, exactly 2 months after I had intercourse. Any other reason why my period hasn't arrived? Nervous.

thanks! i took one pregnancy test on Thursday June 14 and it came out negative. But since my period didnt appear, i got all paranoid and took another on Monday June 18. Still, negative (with a huge sigh of relief). My friends have been telling me to relax and my period will eventually arrive, considering that both tests have been negative. What should i do now?

Hello nervous,
The only way to know whether or not you are pregnant is by taking a pregnancy test.

When taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex, Plan B is effective in preventing pregnancy. The earlier it is taken, the more effective it is.

To avoid a false negative result, wait one more week and if you don't get your period, take a home pregnancy test.


Some women experience changes in their menstrual cycle after taking the pill. It can cause your period to start later or earlier than normal.
