Okay, so my last sexual act was nine days ago today and I've been informed that a test can be taken 10-14 days after that. It hasn't been 10 days but my period was due yesterday. Can I still get an accurate negative result today if my period was due yesterday but it hasn't been 10 days? Which is supposed to come first?

I'd wait at least another day since your period may not actually be late--a day's variation in timing is completely normal.

So right now I would not have gotten accurate result and after a day I will?

Right now, I'd say you're unlikely to get an accurate result. Tomorrow, you are likely to get one, and after four more days, you will definitely get an accurate result. If you test today, you should test again a week later just to make sure.

Okay, thanks.

I am having cramps which should signal that my period is coming, but I have been having them for the past couple of days.

Is it common for women who are pregnant to have cramping at the time of their period but never get it?

My cramping is really light and off and on.

I'm also not sure if taking plan b earlier in the month would have an effect on my period or not.

Basically, I don't think that I had a pregnancy risk but am still confused and worried as to my period not showing up when it does every month (on the 26 of every month.)

Oh, if you took plan B during this cycle, than it's really anyone's guess when your period will arrive. One of the super common side effects of plan B is a delayed or early period.

Too, if your period comes on the 26th of every month, that means you have *irregular* not regular periods, since some months have 30 days, some have 31, and February is even shorter. Unless you're counting the days between each period regularly for several months, you're not going to be able to predict exactly when your period will arrive.

It sounds like you're having a whole lot of anxiety about this--have you considered simply stopping all sexual activity for a while?

So is it possible and normal that the irregular bleeding I had a week after taking it this month would have served as my period and I won't get one at my expected time?

Yea.. I do have a lot of anxiety.
