8 days late

Time to worry?

I take the mini pill and try to use condoms when I believe ovulation might occur so it does seem unlikely, but... ????  I did take a test when I was 2 days late that was negative, so maybe it is just stress.... the stress of being late is adding to my stress factor. urgh. stupid cycle. 

Re: 8 days late

  • The mini pill... <sigh>  I know two people who got pregnant taking that thing.  I didn't even bother after the first couple of months, just made DH cover it up.

    Could be stress though.  Could definitely be stress.

    ETA:  A few months ago, I was 10 days late.  I must have taken 3 pregnancy tests before my period came, but they were all negative.

  • Thanks, Kristel. Good to know that you just went through this yourself (not tha I am glad you had the added stress of it, but glad i am not alone and the outcome can still be one that does not cause extra stress).

    I am really am stressed beyond reason, so perhaps this lateness is a direct response to that

  • I'd test again. I've heard the mini-pill is all kinds of unreliable.
  • Wait a couple of days and test again.  I'd say relax, but I know I couldn't do it in that situation Stick out tongue
    DD1 is 3, DD2 is 1.
  • Ugh, not fun.  But I also thought that the mini pill often stopped your period after you've taken it for months...could it be that?
  • I have some months when I'm late, so that's not abnormal for me. But it's probably just that you're stressed, just keep POAS if you're worried.

  • Could be stress or have you been sick this cycle.  My cycle was thrown off  by a few days this month because I had a cold so ovulation was delayed...hence a later period. I was aware of this so it's not a shock that AF hasn't arrived yet.

  • I am stressed for you!!
