Possibly pregnant??
I am four days late for my period today. I took a pregnancy test yesterday and it was negative. I read somewhere that a cold can delay your period if you got it during your ovulation cycle. My ovulation cycle was the 5th through the 11th of august and I came in contact with my nephew on the 18th (he gave me his cold). so my cold couldn't be delaying my period right? is my cold possibly a symptom of being pregnant? only other clues i have are that my im not sleeping well now and that my boobs are tender. someone please help me?

Hi Bellamariemarie22, Your cold could be delaying your period. The other things that can delay it are stress, lack of sleep, and poor diet. I would suggest you buy a home pregnancy test to make sure you are not pregnant. Pregnancy can be detected the first week of a missed period. I hope I helped.

I took a test yesterday and it came back negative. Do you have any clue how my cold could be delaying it? I only started sleeping bad after i started missing my period and after i got my cold. My cold started acting up only a few days before i missed my first day

Yes a cold can affect the bodies chemistry and delay a period. Are you planning for children. I would take another pregancy test within the week.
