Ok so I got my period on Monday October 3, 2011- Oct 6. On October 14 I had sex (without a condom for about 4-5 minutes- no ejaculation) a condom was then used for the rest. Within 72 hours I took Plan B One Step just in case. A week later on October 24 I got my period again (about a week and a half early) I know Plan B can mess with your cycle and mine isn't too regular (28 days) to begin with. Its now November 24, a month since my last period and I have not gotten it yet. Could I be pregnant. I don't really have any symptoms- no sore or swollen breasts, no frequent urination. The only thing I noticed is lower back pain and some "period-like" cramps. I know these can be either signs that your period is coming or early pregnancy symptoms. I know the easiest way for me ti find out would be to take a pregnancy test but I just wanted some advice before doing so. I'm really psyching myself out and this is probably just in my head because I'm sure its way too early to notice this but I feel like my stomach is getting bigger. I'd really appreciate any advice. thanks so much

Have you had a pregnancy risk since your last period?

No. The last time I had sex was on Oct. 14 and got my period on October 24 (but it was a week and a half early- I got it a week after taking Plan B. But its been a month since I got my period and have not gotten it yet.

A period means that you are not pregnant, even if it was early. If you had that period early, that might explain why this one seems late - this one might be coming at your regular time.

As you've had a period since your pregnancy risk (which would only have been a tiny risk anyway, as you took Plan B) we can totally rule out pregnancy here.

It's common for our periods to take up to five years to become regular. Cycles aren't always the same length and we know that there are about a hundred things that can result in changes to someone's fertility cycle; including changes in diet, excercise and rest. So, no one should ever figure their cycle is set in stone, even when they are much older and their cycles have become regular.

Hi sorry to post again but I'm starting to get worried. I know the obvious answer to my problems would be to take a pregnancy test but I get serious anxiety over it and just like getting reaffirmation.. ok so now its December 4 and my last period was the end of October. I haven't had sex since October 14. I know I got my period after I had sex and I did use Plan B.. but where is my period!!!? As of yesterday my breasts feel sore, typically how they do before my period and today I've been urinating so much like 3 times within 2 hours. It might be all in my head but my stomach feels hard and looks bigger. Im not a small girl and my diet has sucked lately so I may have put on a pound or 2 but I'm so worried. Do you think there is any chance I'm pregnant? The risk was small and I did use EC but the whole 2 periods in one month thing and skipping November really freaked me out. And now that my stomach feels like this I'm really starting to worry. Please help!! thanks

If you had your period after your last risk there's not a reason to be worried. It's not possible to be pregnant and have a regular period. That said, taking plan b can mess with cycles a bit. That's likely the problem.
