I don't know if I'm pregnant

I'm 21 and me and my boyfriend had unprotected sex while I was ovulating but used the ''withdraw'' teqnique.  I am now worried that I might be pregnant.  I haven't had any irregularities in my period for almost a year and a half now.  I am 5 days late on my period.  I took a home pregnancy test and the result came up negative.  Should I take another one.  I don't want to be pregnant and I'm already preparing myself emmotionally for an abortion, I have made up my mind about it, be it the case that I am pregnant.  How long should I wait to take another pregnancy test.  Could I just be stressing myself out about it and thats why my period stays away or could it be change of seasons?  I haven't really been sexually active in quite a while, only recently became active again, could that also be a contributing factor?

HI!
I usually recommend taking a test every couple of days until the period starts or until the test is positive.  A blood test is a good idea too, and might put your mind at ease more.

In the future, don't forget about Plan B--the emergency contraceptive method--It can save you a lot of stress!

Good luck!

Hey,
If your test came out negative you probably are not pregnant. You can take a test a week later to check, but you are probably stressing out. Just relax and keep us updated.
