Period 6 days late......


I'm 20 years old. My period is 6 days late. I'm normally pretty regular but occasionally lll be a few days late, (it's happened about 3 or 4 times in the past few years). I had sex about 4 times since my last period, but we used a condom and still pulled out just because I worry a lot and just want to be extra cautious. Is there any possible way I could be pregnant? I haven't taken a test yet. I feel like it's coming, since the day my period was due I've had backaches, headaches, minor cramps, everything I normally feel when my period is about to come. I don't see how I could possibly be pregnant since I took such huge precautions but I just want some advice and opinions. Thanks!

probably not

You are probably okay.
The chances of pregnany with proper condom use is very low and if you took the extra precaution, then its pretty safe to say you aren't.
Maybe make a appt with your gynocologist just in case, you want to rule out any reasons as to why your period is late ie ovarian cysts, PCOS etc
Good Luck!

Thank you @lcl117

I appreciate your quick reply! I'm extremely stressed out over this, and I know that doesn't help. Do you think it would be to early to take a test? I'm pretty certain it would come back negative, but I feel like seeing the negative sign would give me huge relief.

I think you could take one and get a reliable answer. I know when I was pregnant, I was able to take it within a week of my first missed period and it came back positive.
My biggest giveaway that I was pregnant with each of my 4 children is that my boobs got so sore, and that started weeks before the morning sickness

My boobs are a little sore but that's really common when my period comes so that doesn't really concern me. My stomach and back hurts a lot. My stomach has this anxious/tingling feeling constantly but I've noticed that happening beforey period also. It could just be my nerves making me feel that way too. I checked my calendars from earlier this year and even last year because I'm super good at keeping track of when my period is due and I noticed that there were numerous months where I was 4 to 6 days late and even one month where I was 9 days late. My biggest concern in all this is pregnancy or some type of cysts or stomach ulcers.... I'd really like to rule out pregnancy.

I've been 15 days late.. It's normal don't freak out try not to stress it because it'll be even later! :)

Thanks! You're probably right! It just worried me because my sister suffered from ovarian cysts and I have gastroperesis and IBS so when I get stomach pains they normally are pretty severe so I just don't want anything serious to be going on...

If you don't get it then do to your doctor!

What about pregnancy though? Can I rule that out due to my precautions? That's what's making me paranoid...

Take a test

At 6 days late a pregnancy test would definitely be able to rule out pregnancy for you. A late period can happen for any number of reasons. Even the stress of worrying about a possible pregnancy. Just take a test and put your mind at ease. :)

Thank you! I think I'm going to buy one tomorrow just to make me feel a little better. Maybe just the relief of seeing a negative sign will be enough to make it start lol
