The wacky thing about our bodies are the change all the time. What’s true for me today may not be true for me 6 months down the line.

I saw your thread you made today before you deleted it. Here is the plan: first of all, go to the dollar store and buy a handful of tests. Cheap tests are often more sensitive than some of the others. Go home and put three drops or whatever the amount is on the test. You don’t need to wait to test, that’s obviously stressing you out. 

After that happens and we can confirm again you aren’t pregnant, go to your/any doctor/planned parenthood . Advocate for your health! Get yourself on birthcontrol. Then go see someone to get a plan to manage your anxiety. 

Also:

STOP PUTTING NAKED TALLYWACKERS IN AND AROUND YOUR LADY PARTS.

You should also look in to actual charting (like with temping, not just putting your period in an app) to give you peace of mind. Without you really charting we don’t know that you’re really “late” for your period. You could have just ovulated later this cycle making your period appear to be late. 

When you use those apps all the do is calculate a guess as to when you *might* ovulate based on how many days are in your cycle. The vast majority of women do not actually ovulate at the exact halfway point of however many days, thus it’s wrong and not helpful to you. If you were to start temping you would be able to know pretty much exactly when you ovulate and when to expect your period.

norealname :  Everything slomotion said.. I also agree that our bodies are always changing.  What was the norm for 6-7 years may be different now. I found as I entered my 30’s that my PMS symptoms increased.  Most recently the norm for me was painful cramping, tender breasts, fatigue and upset stomach the week leading up to my period.

Also, even if by some miracle you are pregnant. ITS OKAY!

If you don’t want to have a baby then you don’t have to have one! You have options, you aren’t stuck.

norealname :  if you are six weeks pregnant you’d definitely have a positive pregnancy test. I’m so confused by this post.

Okay so if you were pregnant, pregnancy goes by the first date of your last period. If it’s been 6 weeks since your period when in that time did you have the unprotected penis inside you?

So, if you did turn out to really be 5 and 1/2 weeks pregnant that would mean you would have another 6 1/2 weeks to have an abortion. You would get a positive pregnancy test (or blood test if you go see a doctor and get one done) way before that 6 1/2 weeks is up. So don’t fret yet, you’re not going to miss your window.
