| | Help! My period is late and I'm very scared!
My period is late and I'm freaking out. I'd really appreciate it if you could take the time to read through my situation and give your opinions or any advice. I really just need someone to talk to (besides my boyfriend, who I've already talked to of course).
My last period started on May 10th, so based on that (and assuming a 28 day cycle), my next period should have started on June 7th. Usually though, it only takes me 24 or 25 days in between. However, I have not gotten my period yet and I am very scared that I might be pregnant.
I'm only 20 years old and I have been with my boyfriend for two years now. We ALWAYS use a condom and he pulls out everytime as an extra precaution. I have never had unprotected sex.
I am not really experiencing any of the symptoms I usually get with my period. My face always breaks out before my period, but I haven't gotten any new pimples this week. I haven't had any cramps either, although I did have some lower back pain today, which I know is a sign of pregnancy. I have been Googling a lot but I think I'm just freaking myself out more.
Today, I felt some minor discomfort in my stomach area, which I thought could have been a good sign, but still no period. I did have some brown, mucus like discharge tonight. I looked this up online, and according to the websites I found, it looks like this can occur right before your period OR as an early sign of pregnancy during the time which you would have expected to get your period. I'm praying that I'm just late, but I am NEVER late and I'm very nervous. I'm stressing out so much, which could be delaying my (potential) period even more.
Does anyone have any advice? How long should I wait to take a pregnancy test? As of now, I'm only like 3 days late, but considering how I'm usually early, even more late than that.
Thanks for reading about my predicament!
