I don't know whether I'm pregnant or not
Hi guys! I had sex with protection on August 6th. I was supposed to get my period the day after but it didn't come. I figured that since I had sex so close to my period that it would be delayed for a week. 3 days after I noticed my nipples were getting hard and my boobs have been growing. I still don't have my period and it's August 16th. I took a pregnancy test yesterday which would be 9 days after and it came out negative. Would that still be accurate since I missed my period??
A day before your period is a less likely time to get pregnant than when you are ovulating. For most women ovulation takes place between day 11 and day 21 from the first day of their last menstrual period (LMP).
So what's going on? Who knows. You could be pregnant. You might have been wrong about your expected start date. Your cycle might have been off for some reason. Every woman is different.
You might not be pregnant. Especially if you are younger, your menstrual cycle can be a bit erratic. Things like stress or illness, can also throw your cycle out of whack.
Breast changes are common with pregnancy, but aren't the only reason for such changes.
If you did get pregnant on August 6th, then a test now might be too soon. The hormones which the tests detect take a while to build up in your body and different tests vary in their sensitivity. In general the recommendation I have seen is to wait 2 weeks after the possible conception date. So for you, I'd wait another week and check again.
when is your ovulation date? 10 days from that day is no sex day, After that, use protection to be safe
Hi Stacy. I'll try to give you a simple answer to this, along with a couple of links if I have room for them.
First of all, conception occurs as a result of BDing BEFORE you ovulate, not AFTER you ovulate. Ovulation is a one-day event which occurs as the third part of a four-part menstrual cycle which begins with your period. You have to BD during your follicular phase (the second phase of your cycle) in order to become pregnant. If you were expecting your period on the 7th, then you should have been in the luteal phase of your cycle by that point, and should have been unable to become pregnant.
So the simple answer is that you're probably NOT pregnant.
However, because the follicular phase of the cycle is variable (can differ in length), and you haven't had your period, there is a small possibility that you hadn't ovulated yet when you BD'ed, and therefore a small possibility that you COULD be pregnant.
That being said, you tested too early.
Pregnancy occurs when the fertilized egg (embryo) implants on the uterine wall (which is normally shed during a period). This occurs TEN DAYS AFTER YOU OVULATE. Therefore, if you BD'ed on the sixth, we'd have to assume that at the earliest you ovulated on the seventh, the very earliest you would begin producing pregnancy hormones would be the 17th, which is today.
Tests won't be accurate until about two days after that, and even so, they may not be accurate for a full fourteen days after ovulation. Assuming you ovulated on the 7th, that would mean that you'd have to wait until the twenty-first to test with accurate results from a pregnancy test.
So, wait another four days, test again, and you should have your answer, if your period hasn't shown up by then.
