Missed period this month

I've missed my period this month. Im about a week and a couple days late. I have had no symptoms of a period. The only thing that has happened is sore nimples. I ended up becoming nauseous a couple days ago, and last night vomitted three times, along with a headache. I woke up this morning still nauseous, but head ache is gone. Nausea comes and goes. I have had to go to the bathroom more than usual, both to urinate and have a bowel movement. I don't ever get sick like this before or during my period, nor do I miss my periods. Unfortunately, I did not take birth control this month or the month before, and my bf of 2 years and I do not use any other method of birth control, just the "pull out" method which I am aware that isn't effective.

I'm not sure if I should buy a pregnancy test, or if it is too soon to take a pregnancy test.
Not sure what is going on. I am 20. Thanks in advance.

Hi Anon,

Sounds like you may be pregnant. If you have already missed your period then you can take a pregnancy test and expect an accurate result. Please keep us updated.

Best of luck,

I took the pregnancy test and it came out negative.

Any brand is fine. Discharge is normal as long as it isn't foul smelling, green, or with a cottage cheese appearance. If any of those symptoms sound familiar you want to schedule an appointment with your doctor.

Since you got a negative result, please give it another week. Try not to stress out and wait for your period to come on its own.

I have decided to go to the doctor on monday. Also decided to rethink my relationship with him. He said if Im preg. to move in with my parents. So that's enough for me.

I'm so sorry about your relationship but you know what's best for you. For what it's worth, he sounds like someone you are better off without.

Best Wishes to you,

Thanks for your response Rosa,

Is there a certain brand that would be best? And is it true that taking a pregnancy test in the morning is more accurate?
What can I do about the nausea?
I get constipated for a couple days, then I have a couple bowel movements within the next day. Is that normal?

Thanks Rosa!

I have become extremely sensitive to ciggerette smoke for the last couple days, and i smoke and so does my bf. I cannot stand the smell of it suddenly, as it increases my nausea.

*SORRY AGAIN--forgot to mention one more thing.

I had some slight cramping a couple weeks ago, but my period did not come. The only thing that has happened is a tiny, tiny bit of dark blood. thats it. My bf has also pointed out that my breasts look swollen.
