The reason that I ask this is because my period is about a week late and never in my life has it been late before. I am 27 years old and married. I have been having unprotected sex since I have been married. We are not exactly trying, but wouldn't be disappointed at all if we were to have a baby.
I know there are other reasons why a woman's period can be late other than pregnancy. Medications: I have been on lots of antibiotics throughout my life for things like recurring bacterial infections & it never made my period late. Same with pain killers and other medications. I also have throughout my life been given many vaccinations (I travel a lot) for things like, Yellow fever, Typhoid fever, Malaria pills etc etc. I have even had 7 vaccinations at once in one month recently and still my period was not late.
Stress: I am not currently stressed. With that being said, I have been under extremely stressful situations what with all the traveling I do and such. Didnt change a thing. Other reasons for a late period: I don't have an infection. Even with bacterial infections, yeast infections in the past, aunt flo still arrived. I am not overweight nor am I anorexic. I
am not,and have never been on birth control. Even under all of these circumstances, no matter what contienent I am on, she always comes the same time. Only the hour change, and even that is strange.
I have taken several pregnancy tests and they are all negative. Whether or not I am pregnant doesn't matter to me, I just need to know if I am so I can start making some changes that will work a baby into my life. If I am not, then something is hormonally wrong with me because I have been tracking my period for the last 7 years and this is not normal. So I am thinking I simply didnt ovulate or I am going through menopause.
I keep getting cramps like my period is coming but it doesnt show. I'm wondering when I can guess my next fertile window .Is there a way to figure that out or am i just going to have to guess? I should ovulate again, right?!
Thanks for taking the time to read this post.
EDIT: I know that nobody other than a doctor can tell me what is going on. I just thouht maybe there was some women out there who had the same experience, and if so, what was wrong if you werent pregnant? I am more worried about something being wrong than I am about being pregnant.Answer Question
