hie all, now am really really stressed. i haven't had my period, 2 days now but 3 home pregnancy tests are negative. i had sex 3/ 4 days before my period was due. does anybody have an explanation for this? am really stressed.
An_250560 responded:
Everyone gets late periods at some point in their life... a lot of women will completely miss their period at least once in their life and not due to pregnancy.

You ovulate about 14 days before your period. and your egg only lives 12 to 24 hours.

Yes, it is possible you are pregnant, but not likey.

It's only been two days - wait one week and if you still don't have it, go to the doctor.

AND... stress can mess your body up and delay your period further so take a hot bath, do some yoga, or whatever helps you relax.
ndakana replied to An_250560's response:
Thanks so much. turned out , it was just a scare. I have had my period today, 4 days after.
