'm having kind of a problem. I'm only 3 days
late and my boyfriend I ALWAYS use condoms, but I'm scared out of
my mind that I might be pregnant anyway. I've been ultra-stressed out this month b/c my
musical was close to opening and grades were coming out. I'd also
been dancing much much more than usual plus stressing about my
period not coming. I haven't taken a pregnancy test yet b/c 1)I'm not
sure if it's early enough to tell(the only time I've had sex sicne my last period was a week and
a half ago), 2)I don't know what I'd do if it turned up positive, 3) my
period always acts very strangely in the first place and is never like clockwork, and 4) I have
cramps on and off (I usually get them so badly I can't get out of bed,
but that's not been the case this week), so shouldn't that mean that
something's going on in there? Anyway, reading these posts about how
stress and excercise can delay it makes me feel SO much
better...that's what my friends and boyfriend have been telling me to
calm me down, so hopefully y'all are right!

Honey, take a test. Our opinions on if you might be pregnant or not are totally meaningless. And they won't change anything

Once you know, you can stop being stressed about if you are or you are not.

Pee. Stick. Test. Easy.

Hope this helps,

like i mentioned in another thread, the stress of not knowing might be what's holding up your period. several times i've gotten my period just hours after a negative result.
