My period is 2 weeks late. This is abnormal for me since my period is usually like clockwork. I have been having unprotected sex using the pull out method. My last period was 2/28/11 and I should have gotten it 3/31/2011. It is now 4/12/11. I do not have any symptoms of pregancy. However, I am tired a lot more lately. At this time I have a rotator cuff injury and I am wondering if my body is working overtime trying to heal that, that it's thrown off my period or if there is a chance I could be pregnant. Although, I don't have any symptoms. Is it possible to not have symptoms early in pregancy and when should symptoms begin to appear?

Hello,

Welcome to ehealthforum

Pull out method is not a reliable method for contraception and failure rates are high in this case.Cuff injury as such cannot cause the periods to be delayed for so long.Regarding the pregnancy symptoms some woman do not exhibit at all and some can even start having it within a week of conception.
Get a Blood HCG test done immediately for pregnancy determination.Kindly visit a Gynaecologist for evaluation.

Take Care!

Thank you. I mentioned my rotary cuff injury because I am thinking that the stress of worrying about if I will need surgery is keeping my period at bay.

I took a pregnancy test yesterday and it came back negative. I have been sleepy and now my breasts are starting to get sore. What are the chances that I could be pregnant although the result is negative. I'm 15 days late now.
