So I'm 20 years old and have an incredibly irregular period. I am sexually active with my boyfriend of 4 years. We always use a condom. After sex, I always check the condom to see if there's a leak to determine if I need to take Plan B.
My last period was June 16, 2010. It's now August 9. I had protected sex on June 25 and 26. Then again July 20, 21, and 22. I have experienced very light brown spotting on two occasions; July 22 and August 3. I have no clue what's going on! I took a First Response pregnancy test on August 4 and got a negative result.
I'm so worried but feel there's no reason to be. I really don't think I'm pregnant unless there was a tiny microscopic hole in the condom that sperm was able to to actually penetrate. I have experienced some change in lifestyle though. For instance, I worked full time for 6 months from January to June. In July, I went back to classes. I actually eat less during school for some reason and ended up losing about 4 lbs. Do you think this change in my daily routine and eating habits can cause a missing period? If it is, should it really be THIS delayed?
I haven't been to the OBGYN this year, nor have I ever taken birth control. My mother and aunt have a history of ovarian cysts, which have been removed. Please help, I'm so tired of this irregularity.
