So basically this is what is going on, the last time I had unprotected sex (never ejaculated in me) was June 14th. Then according to my app, I ovulated June 20th. I tested 3 times prior 14 days of intercourse, they all came out negative. However, I'm 3 days late.

Another thing, a week after I was supposed to ovulate, I had all the symptoms of me ovulating. The cravings, bloating, discharge, everything. So could my period be changing? And, also, what are the white gooey blobs that come out when I get fingered?

Your period could certainly be changing- when you say "my app," what kind of period tracker are you using? What sort of information do you have to input into it- just the dates of your period, or do you input daily changes in your cervical mucus and the shape of your cervix, and your body temperature every morning as you wake up? (Charting all three of those things is necessary to accurately predict ovulation.) If you're NOT charting all of those things, it's probably just a normal variation in your period, and the June 20th ovulation date wasn't accurate.

When you say you tested "prior 14 days of intercourse," what do you mean? If you mean prior to 14 days having passed since your risk, you might want to test again, because pregnancy tests are really only accurate after that point. If you've tested since June 28, you can count on that being accurate and just assume your app wasn't accurate about predicting your period dates.

The white gooey blobs you're seeing are probably just your normal vaginal lubrication. If they've changed dramatically recently or have a strongly unpleasant smell, you should consider going to your doctor to test for STDs, but what you've described sounds normal.

The period tracker asks for all of that but it's an option. It mainly wants when you start and end.

I tested June 29th and twice before that. Should I test again or wait a week? I used first response all 3times if that makes a difference. Oh! For the pregnancy test, if they show results before the amount time, should I still wait?

And could a change your diet and stress mess with your period a whole lot? Two weeks ago, I was doing volunteer work with 30 kids and we were short mentors - with two not helping- so it was hectic. Could this have changed it as well? Could I actually skip a period?

HI There,

Predicting your periods by start and end dates of previous periods really isn't going to give you accurate results. tracking cervical mucus and basal body temperature daily over several months is the only way to truly understand what's going on in your cycle.

And yes, stress and diet changes can absolutely throw off a menstrual cycle. Some people do miss periods. There's just a whole lot of things that can happen with a cycle that have nothing to do with pregnancy.

June 29th is more than 14 days after June 14th. You certainly could take another pregnancy test just to be sure, but anything 14 or more days after a risk is considered to be accurate.

Thank you do much! I wasn't really worried about pregnancy but I got confused on what I should do next.
