Hi! We’re getting married the same month, I’m a week before though 🙂

I don’t know what to tell you about your situation, but probably wait a week and if it still hasn’t come take an at home pregnancy test?

Best of luck in whatever happens!

@anon456123:  as you know, there’s no way for us to tell if you are pregnant or not. Are you on birth control? 

If your period is due today, go pick up a first response early result HPT and take it with your first urine Tomorrow. That will put your mind at ease until your period comes. If you still don’t start in a week, test again. If no go for about 45 days, then it’s time to think about making a doctors appt.

Be sure you are taking a vitamin just in case. You’re probably stressed about the wedding. Were you sick at all this cycle?

@anon456123:  I would test– it is what my OBGYN calls $7 sanity checks. It is well worth the piece of mind of knowing, for sure, what it is. 

I would take a pre-natal. My OBGYN said to take one regularly through youre 20s because it is good for your skin, hair, nails, and accidents. I take a generic at night because it sometimes makes me queasy.

I would also say that your symptoms could be early pregnancy, but they are also what I had leading up to a horrible period. So it may be hormonal, just not preganancy hormones. 

Best of luck!

@anon456123:  The American Pregnancy Association recommends all women of childbearing age take at least 400 mcg of Folic Acid daily, so as long as your multivitamin has that you should be good. It’s critical for neural tube formation, which has the most development in the first 28 days of conception, which is why all women should be taking it. If you are really good about using condoms, I’m sure you are fine & just stressed. I like what @Pollywog:  said, a $7 sanity check. I’ll bet that you are fine!!! =) GL! And yes, a First Response Early Result would work this early, if your period is due today. But you could have ovulated late due to stress or whatever, in which case it would be too early. So, if it doesn’t come, I would test ahain in 7 days. =)

@anon456123:  the thing with prenatals is that you have to start taking them BEFORE you are pregnant in order for them to prevent neural tube defects (i.e. spina bifida). If you only start taking them once you realize you are pregnant, it could be too late. Now I’m getting all preachy-preachy, but IMO, if you are not on hormonal birth control and if you would not abort if you got pregnant, you really should be taking prenatals. At least every other day or so. They are not medication, they are just essential vitamins and minerals. You pee out whatever your body doesn’t absorb and use. I’m not a doctor, but I don’t really think there is much in them that could bother you, other than perhaps iron which can make you constipated. You can get gummy versions of prenatals that do not have iron. 

The best thing to do is just pee on a stick. Super early pregnancy symptoms are usually so vague and mild anyway and they are caused by the same thing (progesterone) that causes PMS and are often exactly the same as PMS, so you can’t go by them at all. If you didn’t get sperm in your vagina since the last time you had your period, there is no way you could be pregnant. The only mechanism I can think of is if you had sex with your fiance, and then had sex a second time shortly after that, without using a condom at first (since there could still be a tiny bit of sperm in his urethra that could have been pushed out by pre-cum). But even the chances of that would be super rare. In all likelihood, as previous posters have said, you are stressed out and your cycle has lengthened. Good luck!

Just FYI, vitamins aren’t medicine. Your body needs them to function.

If pregnancy isn’t an option right now, I’d look into something more reliable than condoms. The copper IUD is hormone free.
