Could I be pregnant? Or Just Late?

Me and my ex-boyfriend had protected sex (with a condom) on September 28th. The next day, I got my period, right on schedule. It is now November 17th and I am two weeks late. (I should have gotten my period at the end of October) In the past, I have been late getting my period many times and especially after having sex! (I have sex maybe once every two or three months and each time I do, my period comes late) Could I be pregnant? Or could I just be late? I know stress can cause it to be late.. and during this time I was stressing over boys, and just moved to a new house. I was also sick about 2-3 weeks ago. Are my hormones just adjusting to this or am I pregnant? My breasts feel bigger and a little tender (I usually get this when I am going to have my period) and I have been having headaches (only two days) and feeling tired. Which are also normal for me when I am going to get my period. Please help!

(I read from a doctor that it is not possible to get pregnant a day before?)

Re: Could I be pregnant? Or Just Late?

anything is possible-- you can get pregnant any time during your cycle. Although it is unlikely to get pregnant the day before your period it is still possible.

You said you used protection so i dont think you should really worry. Did the condom break?
Also- you said you had a normal period after this happend.

the chances of you being pregnant seem to be prettttty slim.
You may want to take a HPT just to ease your mind. but i don't think you have anything to worry about.

you do seem to be under alot of stress which can make your period late.
Are your periods normally regular? If so and you dont get your period soon and you do take a test and it is negative.. then i think you should tell someone maybe go see a doctor.


Good luck and keep us updated.

Re: Could I be pregnant? Or Just Late?

well even tho anything is possible if there is no egg there will not be a pregnancy.. considering it was a day before your period and you did get your period it seems like you did not ovuulate when you had sex, therefore no pregnancy.. plus you wore a condom.. so unless it broke its unlikely.. if you had not had sex since this time then i dotn think you are pregnant.. confused is right if you want to take a test to ease your mind do it, but thats the only reason.. and if you are often late a few weeks you may want to speak to a dr about going on the pill to regulate your period more and extra protection, sounds luike it may be stress, you said yourself it has happend before.. ive never heard of sex delaying your period for no reason.. unless you stress everything you are done that you may be pregnant... and if you are, then is it worth it?? good luck, and once again it sounds unlikely that your pregnant.

Re: Could I be pregnant? Or Just Late?

Hey.. yes I did get my period the very next day, and the condom did not break, nor were there any tears or holes in it once we were finished. And no.. I also havent had sex anytime after this again. Does anyone know when you begin to show usually if you are pregnant? Since yesterday my stomach has been having this weird feeling.. and I'm thinking that because I have been reading so much, my mind is making me think I am pregnant and what not. I know I should get a test done soon.. I just dont have the chance to get one yet as I am stuck inside (just moved to a new house) and dont have a way of getting to places just yet as everything is further away then where I used to live before!

Re: Could I be pregnant? Or Just Late?

wel i think it is definitly in your head!! our mind plays tricks on us, but i def dont think youd be showing.. every1 is different, but it seems a lil to early.. you could be Bloated. that is more likley of a reason to see youre stomach explanding.. even tho you can get pregnant at anytime, that is only true if it is because you dont ovulate normally.. if you were due for your period in a day before you had intercourse and got it, chances are that you ovulated in the mid of your cycle, therefore you could not get pregnant the day before., plus you said yourself this has happend to you before..!! stop stressing... you sai you know nothing got through the condom, it takes sperm meeting an egg to get pregnant.. you have to be ovulating to have an egg drop, and something has to get inside you for it to meet that egg.. chances are your stressed.!! get a test if itd make you feel better.. but if you are often late after you have sex, maybe you stress everytime, and if you are so worried even if you protect yourself right after you have sex, maybe your not ready, it doesnt sound like its worth it to be paranoid even when you are protected everytime you do it..!!

Re: Could I be pregnant? Or Just Late?

Oh no.. I'm not bloated at all! I work out my abs alot.. so those are still showing like crazy! Haha. But yea I'm just gonna take it easy and not stress over this. Moving to a new house/new area, stressing over this, working out, bad sleeping habits, and trying to find a decent guy.. that can definitely make it late! lol. I'm 19 so my periods are pretty regular, coming at the end of each month. And I am on this site that tracks when your next period will come and apparently my next one should be Dec. 1 So I'm not gonna stress out till then! Haha. Thanks guys!

Re: Could I be pregnant? Or Just Late?

well im glad your gonna try not to stress to much, but as an fyi at any age can you get irregular periods young or old.. so dont ever tthink that bc your 19 you may not be havign problems.. sometimes it takes a women into her 20s before her periods completely regulate, and some women dont get their periods into their late teens.. but if you are missing your period sometiems after intercourse, thats not common... !! good luck tho in the new town!!
