Could I be pregnant?

My fiance and I had unprotected "sex" (we stopped before he finished, and it seriously only lasted about 2 minutes before we stopped) at the end of June about 10 days before my period. My period came like normal. I've had a period 3 times regularly since then. At the beginning of the month, because of paranoia, I took a pregnancy test. It came back negative. I took another one the next morning which was also negative. This month however, I am 5 days late for my period and I am freaking out.

Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

Since you have had test results come back negative and have had a menstrual cycle the last couple of months, perhaps you are experiencing an irregular period.

Although pregnancy is the most common reason for missed period, there are some other reasons this could be happening.

Here are a few reasons to consider:

  • Emotional stress
  • Illness
  • Excessive weight loss or gain
  • Problems with pelvic organs

Here is some additional information:

Make an appointment with your doctor  to investigate further.

I hope this helps.

Be well,
