Is she pregnant?

My friend has always had an irregular period, she even went on the pill to make it regualr but recently got off it again. Three days ago she took a pregnancy test because she hadn't gotten her period and it came up negitive. Today is the 40th day without her getting her period. Even though that test came up negitive should she still be worried about getting pregnant? Or most likely is she fine and just needs to wait to get it? Let me know what you guys think! Thanks Alot

Re: Is she pregnant?

My periods were irregular. My cycle was 28-36 days, but I rarely hit 40 days. Going off the bc may effect her cycle. If she doesn't get it soon, she may want to visit her gyno to make sure there isn't anything wrong, or go to the doctor to get a blood test to verify rather she is pregnant or not.

She should talk with her doc, to make sure that she isn't pregnant because tests can be wrong. But if she just got off birth control that may be the reason. When I got off the depo shot, it took me 3 months before I got my period again and I have heard that it isn't uncommon for that to happen. But seeing a doc is the best way to go.

When I quit taking BC pills, my cycle was anywhere from 21 to 43 days. I was irregular before taking them too. So AF could just be taking her time in comming

Hopefully she will just get her period and not have to worry about going to the doctors. Last time she went to planned parenthood to get a test she had a horrible time, they were very mean and inconsiderate to her. In a couple days she is going to try another at home test though.

Re: Is she pregnant?

She should go to her doc just to be sure. Funny thing....I dont trust home preg tests. When I was about 5 months preg with my son, I took a hpt just to see. Dont ask me why....I was just really weird back then. It came up negative with 3 different tests.

Now, I am almost 8 weeks, and I took a hpt a couple weeks ago and it said negative.....Dont ask why, I think this time, I just didnt wanna believe it, or I had a hard time really accepting the fact that I am prego.....Still weird I guess.

At any rate, going off of bc can mess with your cycle. It could be nothing, or it could be something. Best to get a doc involved just to be sure.
