I am almost 30. I only have one ovary and one tube on my right side. I am not on bc. My husband and I have been using the withdrawl method. My "period" was a few days late and I am pretty positive i ovulated last moth. My period stared light and day two it was red then it was gone. I did test last month and it was neg but never sure when the best time to test is. Now I really don't know bc not even sure if the "period" counted or not. Can anybody help with info?

Hi lsw81,
Thanks for your question. A period is an indication of not being pregnant. So if you had a period for more than a couple hours, you can rest assured you are not pregnant. The best time to test is after a missed period--some say to wait a week--if you are pregnant, the test should be most accurate then.
Hope that helps. If you are not wanting to get pregnant, you may want to look into a more effective method of birth control. The withdrawal method generally speaking is only about 70% effective. If you need help with that, let us know and we can direct you to some resources for figuring out what the best method for you would be.
Good luck and let us know how you are doing.
