I am a 32 yo mother of one. I am 5 days late, my normal cycle is 26-28 days, normally i would assume im preggo, but I have failed 4 hpt. I have had one miscarrige over 13yrs ago . With my prior pregnancies I tested a week(are sooner) b4 my missed period w/postive results ea time & symptoms. I have had unprotected sex using the pullout method(IK not the safest), but Im just baffeled at whats going on , is it stess or what cause this is unsual. I have tender nipples and cramping which is normal for my cycle, no morning sickness(& usually this is the first sign im preggo) or heighten smell issues. Usually i get so sick i have to take meds to combat morning sickness when Im preggo, so Im at a lost. I started BC but only took it 2 days after my last period so idk if that has anything to do w/it. Help Lost??

Hi meme,

Thank you for your question. Periods can be crazy at times. I don't know if I have the best answer for you as sometimes this just happens with no good explanation or reason. Stress can certainly be the culprit. It is very common to miss your cycle due to stress. If you are negative with pregnancy tests, you should be safe that you are not pregnant. Try to relax, maybe your period will come. If you are still concerned, call your doctor to get a blood test which measures the hg levels.

Hope this helps.
