my boyfriend and i had sex on jan 20-22nd and we used condoms each time. according to my ovulation calendar (i know this is not the best way to calculate an ovulation date...i just use it as a guideline)i ovulated on jan 25th and my period was due on feb 8-11th. as of sun night (feb 12) i have not gotten my period, making me 4 days late. i took an hpt on sunday morning (the 12th)and it was negative. i have also been feeling some slight cramps and noticed that the last few droplets of my urine were cloudy.

i have a feeling that i'm not pregnant... however, the lack of my period is stressing me out. i know that stress can sometimes delay periods.

lastly, my last cycle was 3 days late. and i felt the same cramping and saw cloudy droplets then. basically i am confused as to why my period is late again. can cycle lenghts change? i'm usually 28 days, but my last cycle was 31 days.

Our bodies aren't machines and they don't always run smoothly and exactly the same from day to day or month to month. If your last period delayed, too, then it's really unlikely that this has anything to do with sex or pregnancy and more to do with your body going through some changes.

Have you read through this?

Afraid you might be pregnant?

Hey folks, my name is Andrew and I was a mod here for awhile a couple years ago. I'll be here for a couple weeks while Heather is out and the site is even more short-staffed than usual
