I think that you should breatttttttttttttttttttthe. I have been as much as 2 weeks late before, without being pregnant, so I don’t think that you should panic just yet.

Lots of things can cause you to be late, (stress, workouts etc.). It seems that are very careful and shouldn’t have anything to worry about. So just calm down and keep busy until your friend joins you 😉

Yeah you gotta chill out! Stressing out can make your period not come on time. A few hours late is DEFINITELY nothing to stress over.

Aww hun, don’t start to panic after only a few hours!! Wait at least a day and keep us updated!! I can totally see how it must be scary though when you usually start at the same time all the time!

girlfriend! save this post for maybe Saturday or Sunday. I was pretty on track with the day and time of my period for years, but suddenly it went up a day, and has been up a day ever since. I say, don’t stress about it until there’s something to stress about. That can make it take longer!

Though i do think that with all of that protection, it’d be nearly impossible to be preggo. But if you were? i’d consider it a miracle baby that just wanted to be born b/c seriously? You are super diligent with your BC! that’s commendable.

First: BREATHE. there’s nothing to do just yet but wait.

Second: It sounds like you have taken appropriate measures against conception. You probably aren’t pregnant.

You’re probably just stressed from planning your wedding.  I promise you 5 hours late is no big deal.. even if you are on the pill.  Chances that you are pregnant are slim to none.  If you’re that nervous take a test to calm yourself.

I was about to post, refreshed and all the girls said what I was going to say.  You definitely need to relax because a few hours shouldn’t send you into overdrive that you may or may not be pregnant.  If you are stressed at all that alone can do it—once I had my period almost two weeks later than normal because I had started a new job and was just stressed to the hills.  Try some yoga or something to calm down a bit because otherwise it may take longer for it to come if you continue to stress over it.

Also, about two years ago my body decided to go freakin’ nuts and I started to have a period every 12 days….not kidding.  Did that twice in a month and then I went a month without one at all!  My body just went crazy.  Sometimes your body just freaks out.

I too am careful – using Nuvaring and condoms, but sometimes I get my period a little later in the day.  Usually mine is in the morning, but once in a while it doesn’t come til that night or the next morning.

Other factors in your life can affect it too!  Stress, eating habits, exercising, and sleep patterns are all things that can change your period a bit – just to name a few!

I wouldn’t worry about it too much at this point!  Relax…some people get worked about these things and cause themselves to have a “hysterical pregnancy” – basically your body thinks you are pregnant and gives you the symptoms, but you are not in fact pregnant.  Everything will work out!

Awe… Stop stressing.   That could cause the lateness.    If you are as careful as you say you are, why are you stressing over it?

Don’t even bother thinking about this – certainly don’t take a test, it would be an outrageous waste. It seems like there’s a lot of anxiety for you wrapped up around sex and babies!  Take a deep breathe, remind yourself that it would have to be some miracle sperm to make it through a condom, to a waiting egg, and then implant itself in a very hormonally inhospitable womb.  You’re on birth control and using condoms, what’s the failure rate of those two combined? I would be shocked if it was more than .001%

Pregnancy scares are never fun, but this sounds definitely like a scare, and not the real deal. The chances of you getting pregnant while on the pill (esp. since you diligently take it!), and using a backup of condoms, would be virtually impossible, even if you were having sex every single day. If you don’t do it every.single.day, your chances would go down even further.

Try not to stress (not easy, I know), as that can delay your friend even longer…and when she finally does arrive, have a nice big glass of wine to celebrate and relax!
