am i pregnant?

I know that you guys get a lot of these posts but I am just confused out of my mind here! My period is 8 days late as of today, and I finally decided to take a pregnancy test today, which came out negative. Seeing as I'm only 21 and still in school, this was somewhat of a relief, but I'm still worried--why is it late?

I took the test in the midafternoon and most people say to try in the morning because of undiluted urine, but I didnt really even have much to drink today (besides one cup of coffee...) and it seemed like a pretty reliable test too.

If it helps--I recently came off from BC pills about 2 months ago. Last month my period was a few days late (maybe 4 or 5, but definitely not this long).
AND I've been under a LOT of stress this past month--financial and family-wise. Does all this maybe have anything to do with it?

Also, my boyfriend and I do use condoms. We did have to rely on the withdrawal method once or twice (and i know thats not the best...), but he never ever ejaculated inside of me.

any reply would be greatly appreciated......

Re: am i pregnant?

I wouldnt worry about it. When you go off the pill your cycle will be messed up for a bit. It takes awhile to get your hormones to even out (6-8months). Also, the stress you are experiencing could easily cause your period to be late. If you still havent had a visit from AF in a week, call your doc and see if they think you should go in. Numerous things, besides pregnancy, can cause your period to be late or even to skip it all together. Best wishes and try not to stress about it!

I have very regular periods but when mine was late it always came down to my body being stressed or if I had suddenly lossed/gained weight. The fact that you said that you have been stressed and probably even more now that your periods late... I wouldn't stress it will come and if it doesn't show up in a week or so call your DR. Good Luck.

Re: am i pregnant?

thanks for the replies I guess I'll just wait and see if my lovely AF shows up. I really hope it does because I dont want to have anything wrong with me here And I probably will try the test again in a couple of days (although today is 36 days after my last period from a cycle that pre-BC used to be really really regular---really frustrates me!)

Just a quick thing to add - don't stress if you skip your period altogether. When I came off the pill my cycles ranged between 26 days and 54 days! It took months for them even to start to settle down.
