Hi there, I am fairly new at this. I was wondering if I went off the pill on Jan17 and that was the last time I took a pill (as I was going off the pill) and I had sex (unprotected) on the 28th. I still haven't had my period and I am over a week late. The last time I went off the pill as instructed to by surgeon at the time (ankle surgery, long story) I had one period and then nothing for 3 months. My periods only resumed when I went back on the pill. Should I be worried that I may be pregnant or that there could be an underlying problem?? I have since taken 2 pregnancy tests and they both were negative. I don't seem to have any other symptoms of pregnancy, but the tests are negative. Should I wait for a while longer and retest?? I am worried that there may be something else wrong, but I am too scared to go to the doc. I mean who knows what kinda tests they can send you for.
