    Could I be Pregnant?

    TMard posted:
    I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend about the 12th of October, about a week after my period. I'd been taking birth control regularly, and I missed on pill that week, and one or two more that weekend. (Yeah, it was stupid to not use extra protection. >< ) My periods have always been regular, around the 4th of every month. It's the 10th and I still have no period. I took two HPTs and they were negative. Could I still be pregnant if the home tests were negative?

    Thanks!

    Yes, it's possible, It's also possible that your hormones are a bit screwy after missing a few pills. Also, it's common to skip a period here and there while on the pill. A regular poster on WebMD had it happen to her 3 times.

    Okay, thanks. My friend said it was probably just my hormones. I've taken 3 tests since I missed my period and they've all been negative.
