We keep talking with users who seem to be very, very worried that they may be pregnant despite things like negative pregnancy tests and periods that were not missed.
If you are someone who has been in that spot, or who thinks it's anything but exceptionally rare for someone to be pregnant for months without knowing, and with things like regular periods and pregnancy tests, can you tell us where you're getting those ideas so we can try to better help you? Thanks!
Please ONLY answer this poll if you HAVE been concerned about being pregnant without knowing, or have not, but think that happens anything but very rarely.

I don't understand how these things happen where a woman gets a full "period" with a full amount of bleeding, for multiple months, with no symptoms, and doesn't know she's pregnant for a long time.
It's very scary.
I still keep panicking that my gf could be pregnant, when she's had 7 or 8 full periods now...gah...just "what if?" So many women online SWEAR they had what seemed like full periods for nearly the whole time, some even specified them being dark red blood like a normal real period...
