I am worried I may be pregnant. The last time I had sex was in the middle of may and it was protected sex. When my period was supposed to come a little later on in the month and it was about 5 days late. I took a test and it came out negative than that night I got my period. In June the same thing happened. Ididn't have sex but my period was a couple days late but then I took another test it caem out negative. Than later that day I got my period. This month my period is due in a few days. And last week I went to womens health center and got a test but it was a urine test and they said it came out negative. SoI just want to make sure that I am not pregagant. I don't think I am. I am just stressing myself out to an extreme about it. Ive been looking up that you can have waht seems like a period but it's not. But it feels like a normal one. I'm having crapms and stuff. I was just wondering if there are cases like mine.

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Few women can experience decidual bleeding during first few months of pregnancy during their expected time of periods. Wait and watch for your next period. Sometimes periods can be delayed for 5-10 days due to stress, changes in sleep, diet or exercise pattern, hormonal changes etc (variation of 5-10 days in your menstrual cycle is considered to be normal). If you suspect to be pregnant, look out for development of any other new symptoms suggestive of pregnancy. If periods do not start within 10 days of expected period dates and you continue to have (or develop any new) symptoms suggestive of pregnancy, you should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for further examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet.
Take care.
