    WHI Editor's Note: For the latest discussion on late periods, click here!

    I?ll try to keep this short and sweet. A week before my period was supposed to start I had four days of consistent spotting (red and brown) but nothing like my normal period. This was two weeks ago and my period hasn?t came still so I thought that the spotting was my period. I took two pregnancy tests , one after one day after my missed period and one a week after my missed period, it?s came back negative both times. Today I?ve been experiencing some cramping on and off but no period still. Is there a chance I could be pregnant? This has never happened to me before. Thanks!

    Hmmm...well, that's the thing about menstrual cycles. They can be almost exactly the same for months, even years, then they can suddenly change. Mine is generally consistent, but every now and then throws me for a loop.

    Have you changed your exercise routine?
    Have you changed your diet?
    Have you traveled since your last period?
    Have you been under an unusual amount of stress?

    All of those things can affect your period. But also, it is possible that you simply just did not ovulate this time. When you don't ovulate, you will likely miss the next period.

    jns is right on the pull out method. Unless you are charting your cycle (using the FAM method) and avoiding intercourse during high fertility days, you are absolutely putting yourself at risk of pregnancy. So, if you're not ready for that....give some form of birth control or FAM a thought.

    The pull out method is not failure proof due to not pulling out quickly enough and to pre-ejaculate possibly containing sperm.

    Let me restate your timeline. Two weeks ago you had four days of spotting. A week ago you should have started your period but have not had it before or since. The day after the day you should have started your period, you took a home test that was negative. A week later, which should have been in the last few days, you had the same results from another test. Is this restatement correct?

    The last test should be accurate but the tests are not correct 100% of the time. It is still possible that you are pregnant but your hormone levels have not risen enough to be indicated on the test. You could go to the doctor for a test but maybe waiting a few more days and retesting would be better.

    BTW, the spotting could be due to random spotting or it could be due to implantation bleeding. It's hard to tell at this point.

    Please provide some background on birth control. Also, did you have sex in the last month or so?
