I am a college student who is late (8 days to b exact). MY last period was Feb. 7-13. and very normal. I still had sex with my boyfriend those days of my period. After that we had sex on the 24-27 on the 25 I took the day after pill because he thought he slipped up since sometimes we use the pull out method and others we use condoms. I have taken 2 HPT and they were both negative, I just got blood work done because they said that that would let me know for sure if I was since I still havent gotten my period. I have been having normal pre-menstrual feelings like I do every months (i.e. upset stomach, bloating, tired, irritability, cramps). I have also been having these kind of sharp twitches in my right side. & then I also have a clear discharge but very watery, because I feel it like if it was my period but then no blood!.
I have been reading many of theses and people write about their problems but don't ever follow up of whether they were pregnant or just very late. So some one PLEASE help me!!!
Could the Day after pill have made my period late? Could i be pregnant??? IDK WHATS GOING ON & AM VERY WORRIED!!!!!
Yes, the pill can affect your period as can stress. If your blood test came back negative, then most likely you are not pregnant. Please consider a reliable form of birth control in the future -- the pull out method is NOT a form of birth control as the man ejaculates sperm well before he comes...
You state that you used the morning afterpill, I'm assuming it was emergency contraceptive. The morning after pill works by keeping your body from releasing an egg and making your uterine lining inhospitable to an egg, so you should not be pregnant. The pill alters the amount of progesterone and it may cause irregular period. If a pregnancy test shows a negative result at eight days after a missed period, it is unlikely you are pregnant. I would check again in a few days.
It is not unusual for women to occasionally skip a period alltogether, especially after taking hormone related drugs.
