Exclamation I'm Late - April 17th 2013, 02:59 AM

My period usually comes around the 14th of every month. A few months ago, I got the app "My Days" that will track and predict your next period, and it had been spot-on for the months after I got it. The app said I'd probably get my period on the 11th of April, but I still haven't gotten it.
I'm paranoid that I may be pregnant. My boyfriend and I use condoms, and the last few times we've been intimate, he didn't come. I know the chances are slim, but I don't know what other things would make my period late like this.

Your period could just naturally be late. It can change quite frequently. I got freaked out a few months ago because my period was at the beginning of the month for the longest time and now it is in the middle, more towards the end. I wasn't sexually active at the time but it still got me paranoid(x

Anyways, the only way to know for sure though is to pick up a pregnancy test. I hope all is well! You can message me if you want to talk!

Don't stress out to much, stress can make it worse specially if you know chances aren't to high any how... Give it 2 weeks to be late (for what ever reason that is), you should get it by then, if not then get a home pregnancy test just to be sure, if your on the birth control pill it can cause you to not have your period too, i've missed my periods because of the pill before

Feel free to PM me if you ever need to chat or have questions

Don't stress - similar to Sam, my boyfriend and I haven't been sexually active in a while but period still went a bit haywire! At 16 you're body is still sorting itself and changing! I'm 19 and my period still tends to get lost and forget when to come!

Worry and stress can make a period late too! Or even if you've felt a bit under the weather!

Try not to worry, but if you feel you want to ease the worry of pregnancy then just take a test or see a doctor!
I'm sure you will be fine!

I'm still alive.
Must have been a miracle
It's been one hell of a ride
Destination still unkown
It's a fact of life: If you make one wrong move with a gun to your head
You better walk the line or you'll be left for dead.

I'm a runaway train on a broken track
I'm the ticker on the bomb that you can't turn back
Thats right.
I got away with it all and I'm still alive.
Let the end of the world come tumbling down.
I'll be the last man standing on the ground
As long as hot blood runs through my veins
I'm still alive.

If you use condoms then I doubt you're pregnant. You may just be late. I've used an app like that before and I was "late" a few times.

If you still haven't had one in a week or so then take a pregnancy test

Try not to stress out too much right now. Things like stress, a change in diet and exercise, sex, or illness can all throw off a woman's period, or it can just be naturally late. Sometimes they don't come exactly on time, but stress probably will end up making it worse and I'm sure you don't want that!

If it doesn't come soon you can always take a pregnancy test to confirm. These can be taken two or more weeks after the sexual intercourse has taken place. That way your mind will be eased some!

It's highly unlikely that you're pregnant, especially since you two were using protection. Good for you using protection, better safe than sorry. However, periods can vary a lot. It's normal for them to be different sometimes. Could be hormones, stress, change in diet.

Stressing over being pregnant can cause it to be late as well.

Good luck! Hope I helped.
