Question: late period = pregnant?


 darno - Mon Nov 07, 2005 1:55 pm

I'm usually have a pretty normal period cycle that has NEVER been over 30 days. Today is day 33 and I haven't gotten my period yet. I just recently started having sex since my last period and was wondering if that causes any hormonal changes that may delay my period?

I used condoms every time we had sex and the condom never broke. Two weeks ago, I got really scared because I felt tremendous discomfort down there and had to pee more and I felt nauseated for one night. Could that be signs of fertilization? Then I felt nothing for a week or so. But now that my period hasn't come yet, i'm getting freaked out again. Sometimes I think its all in my head because i start worrying and then I think i feel all these symptoms.

My breasts feel really tender and I was pretty emotional this past week. Do you think I could be pregnant? I've never had a delayed/missed period before and am pretty regular (only one irregular cycle of around 20 days long)

User avatar If your sexually active, it is always possible to become pregnant, but, menstraul changes can happen from time to time, and your period may just be a little late this month. The tender breasts and emotional feelings can be a sign of your impending period, or a sign of pregnancy.

The only way to know for sure is to take a pregnancy test. An at home test should be accurate if taken now.
Good luck.
