No, there's absolutely and completely no possible way I'm pregnant. At all. Like, ever. So that is ruled out.
Also, there's nothing I'm particularly stressing about. Again, I'm not stressing about the late period-it's more time away from stupid cramps and stuff, so it's all good. I'm loving this. I'm not really stressing about anything, actually. Stuff is going decent for now.
Does anyone know any other reasons my period could be late? Cause my last period was early May, and I haven't had one since. And I've been menstruating for four years...I'd think I'd be somewhat regular-ish by now?

huh. Duh. No, I didn't think of that, sorry! I think I'm probably just still really irregular-confusing as anything, but I'm not going to be annoyed over more days without cramps. Since I use my cup for discharge as well, I don't have a huge reason to worry about it hitting when I'm not expecting, so I'm pretty much ok, I think.

I disinfect it usually once every couple of weeks just to be sure, but I haven't had any problems yet. I have really heavy and constant discharge, so it's either use the cup or line my underthings with toilet paper, which isn't particularly comfortable.

It's as safe as using a tampon (properly, like removing on time and replacing with a new one, and not using overnight and all) every day would be, I think. Safer since there's been no reported cases of TSS from the cup, and I make sure to clean it when it's removed, as well as fully disinfecting it once every two weeks (normally once a month, after or before each cycle, but when I'm using it more often I feel I should clean it more often as well).

Wow... I have constant discharge too, and depending on my cycles, heavy as well. They don't sell cups or even tampons (only saw it once!) here, so I have to wear pantyliners everyday -.-

I think I'll check out getting a cup when I can!

I got a LadyCup online-the service was really great and I got it pretty quickly, plus shipping was quite cheap.
