I had unprotected sex 3 days before my period. I got my period one day late however. No chance of being pregnant right?

Probably not: If you ovulate at the usual mid-cycle time, then it's unlikely you are pregnant. If your next period is different than usual or skips, check a pregnancy test. ...Read more

See below: You had an unusual menstrual cycle. However, unusual menstrual cycles don't necessarily mean that there's anything wrong physically. The menstrual cycle is under very delicate hormonal control, which can be influenced by things such as exercise, rapid weight change, emotional stress etc. But to be safe: see your GYN if you continue to have abnormal bleeding.

Period one day late. Negative pregnancy test that said it could detect up to 5 days before missed period.?

Period one day late.  Negative pregnancy test that said it could detect up to 5 days before missed period.?

Stress or worry?: Stress and worry can lead to late or missed period as your adrenal glands need cortisol to get you thru stress and they "steal" Progesterone from your female cycle which can affect timing and regularity. I can't tell you not to worry but i would suggest repeating test in a few days and then using reliable contraception on a regular basis to remove worry. Stress is bad for your health! ...Read more

Extreme lower backaches, extreme fatigue, queasiness, and mild pain in breasts. Period one day late but usually irregular. Could i be pregnant?

Test to know 4 sure: If you suspect that you're pregnant, then the only way to know for sure is to get tested. Consult your ob/gyn doctor. S/he will can order additional testing. It's good to know now, since the development of the fetus during the first three weeks of conception is a critical period, and you want your doctor to be involved with prenatal support. Without an in-office, physical examination done, it's difficult to determine whether you're pregnant or not just based on symptoms. ...Read more

I had protected sex the day after my period ended, and i got my period 1 day late but it seems to be a lighter flow then usually, is this normal?

Period June 12-17. Unprotected sex but pulled out June 30 and July 6. Period 1 day late, then brown discharge, then period. No other symp. Chances pg?

Maybe not preg., but: It can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An Ob-Gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more

Trying to get pregnant. Had sex during ovulation. Period 1 day late. Negative test. Could i still be pregnant?

Trying to get pregnant. Had sex during ovulation. Period 1 day late. Negative test. Could i still be pregnant?

Maybe: Over the counter pregnancy tests are pretty accurate about 14 days after conception. If you are late for your period due to pregnancy, the test really should be positive by now. However, there are other possibilities: a late ovulation, dilute urine, or a bad test. Wait a couple of days, and if still no period, then take another test using your first morning urine. ...Read more

Period 1 day late, neg preg test yesterday. Always use condoms & on BC always taken on time. Should I be worried?

Probably not: If you are careful as you describe, you are not likely pregnant. Periods can be late sometimes, especially at your age and especially if you are stressed and worrying. If you don't get your period in a week, take another test and see your doc no matter what the results. ...Read more

Period 1 day late and very light. Neg hpt on 1st day of period. Feeling normal. Been stressed. Period or implantation?

Needs dates: If the bleeding was at the time of your expected period, it is likely to be your period. If you have doubt, do a home pregnancy test in 4-5 days, unless you get your usual bleeding by then. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Repeat the test : Repeat the test. If still negative you are good. I notice you are already on birth control nordette (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel). There is no reason to take emergency birth control while already on birth control pills. It does not do anything except mess up your menstrual cycle. Just take your birth control as directed. ...Read more
