Im stressed out. I have regular periods. My last period was on 01-02-10. My period is late. Its Feb o4 already. I know i had sex on my ovulating days. But he pulled out. I have no discharge. No spotting. I have swollen tender breast, constipation, weird cravings and other stuff. Can my mind be playing tricks on me? i dont want to test early. I wasnt trying to conceive. I have leg cramping and lower back pain. What should i do ?

Pulling out is not considered an effective method of birth control. So although you may be positive that he pulled out, you can't be positive that there was no ejaculation or pre-ejaculation inside of you.

If your last period was on Jan 2, then by now you should be able to test for pregnancy. You can wait it out another couple of days and YES stress plays a large role in getting (or not getting) your period but you definitely should be testing for pregnancy.

Please consider an alternative form of birth control if you're not ready for children. There are many other alternatives that you can talk to your doctor about. If you don't believe in birth control pills or IUD's, then you may want to consider condoms.

All the best--

I dont use " pulling out" as a form of birth control. Plus im a mother already. Still no period. So ill give it till the weekend to take a HPT . Thanks for your opinion.
