Thank you for the links. They helped me out. I'm not sure if all I said before was a question. It's more a story that leads to what are my risks of getting pregnant? And If I'm just really stressed and it's causing me to maybe miss my period ? Because last time this happened, like I said I'd get signs of getting my period, then they go away, then come back,(not normal unless I'm worried) but I was extreamly worried. Today during school I thought I got it, but I didn't.I don't know how to explain it. This seems to only happen when I eat my self up inside. AAhhh!! My period last to maybe 5 days or 6. I'd get it say...Last month I got it Sept.6 till about the 12th. If you do that counting 28 days thing I should have gottin' it around the 3rd or so. But hardly ever is that right, and I end up getting it 6 to 8 days late. When I'm due for my period normaly my back would hurt, my brest would hurt and get slightly larger, my head might hurt, I get really moody ( or really hyper ). Sometimes it's days before I get my period, or sometimes it's a day or two after. It's weird like that.Then after a few days went by this month, my chest hasn't hurt a lot, I get slight back pains, and my head would hurt for a few mins. and I get this funny feeling *down there* like I always get if i'm having my period..and it stops. This is my problem. The signs you get for being pregnant are normal for me in everyday life.They are also normal for me when i'm due for my period. This scares me because I've been worried for like..3 weeks now (after that sexual encounter). My brest have not been hurting a lot. My back would hurt, then go away shortly. I have feelings of me getting my period..then it goes away shortly after. I'm always hungry, thats just me. I have to pee when ever, how ever many times I eat or drink. I have always had a hard time sleeping so I'm tired alot. I every so often feel sick because of the stupid things I think of ( that sounds stupid, but it's true ) So maybe I'm being to hard on myself? If by the 11th I don't get it, I'm calling Planed Parent Hood...only I lost the number for the one in my area, so I have to go get it again. My mother knows almost everything sexual I've done, so thats not a problem. I told her all this, and she just tells me not to worry, but, I can't help it. Sorry if I belittle you. Or if I did it again. I just don't know where to start. ok, i'll just shut up now. lol Advice? Oh, how long after the sexual activity would you start to have signs that your pregnant? After what I told you now, Do I still have a low chance of being pregnant?(unless I wasn't clear with my explanation ) And I know about the STD's and whatnot, thanks
Yes ... I would say your risk is still relatively low.
This may be a case of mind over matter ... Where your regular PMS symptoms start to look like symptoms of pregnancy. You're not late for your period right now, but you could delay it from coming on time (or at all) if you keep worrying about it. While it's surely not a small matter, worrying about it now isn't going to make you unpregnant, if indeed you are.
It's great that you're open w/ your mother. I am too, and it's great to know that i have her support. You may want to call planned parenthood even if your period isn't late so you can get an STD screen and regular checkup ... and at the same time they can probably give you some condoms and other safer sex tools so you won't have to go through this again next time

If we all relied on "signs" of pregnancy to tell us we were pregnant, most people wouldn't even know until they were quite a way along. Really dear, you cannot diagnose pregnancy based on any list of symptoms and it won't do you any good to try. Some people will notice some symptoms right away, others won't experience them until much later, and some women won't ever have any of the "typical" symptoms. We're all different, and that's just the way it works. The only way to tell if you're pregnant is to take a test.
