  • please help advice needed

    I really need some help at the moment. I am 6 days late on my period and I just want to know opinions versus just what WebMD is telling me. I am sexually active and my boyfriend and I are very careful when it comes to sex and we have never had a leak, break, or any incident. My period is fairly normal, maybe once a year I will skip a month, but it was never a problem because I was never sexually active until April of this year.

    Now I realize that condoms are not 100% effective, but something is just not right. I have counted the days on my tracking app and it logically makes no sense that I would be pregnant. Yet I am 6 days late. Every month I always get cramps about a week before I physically menstruate. According to my tracker app this should have started on August 3rd approximately. But I only recently felt cramps on August 10th, when I was due for my period.

    I feel crampy, like it could come any hours, but I read online that often cramps are a sign of being pregnant, but still the dates don't add up at all. I know breast tenderness is another common way to know if you are pregnant, but they aren't tender.

    Can someone, another woman, please just tell me I am over thinking this because it just doesn't add up and I feel like I'm going to get it any minute now. Please I need honest opinions.

  • I just took two pregnancy tests, at 7 days late, both came back negative. Yet still no period.

    • There are many things that can cause you to skip a cycle or for it to be delayed. Stress is a huge factor. You are probably over thinking it. If you want the most accurate reading, take a pregnancy test first thing in the morning. They measure HcG levels and (if) you are pregnant, urine specimens from overnight would have the highest concentration of this hormone.

      Just a thought, if you can take hormonal bc, it may be a good idea to do so along with the condoms. However, there are many ladies who can't so they use the temperature tracking method. Good luck!

      • Thank you for the advice, it turns out that I was just stressing and I got my period after being 10 days late.
