I'm 18 years old. My boyfriend and I always have sex a few times a day usually 2 or 3 says when I am most fertile.. Kind of stupid. I know. But I'm 3 weeks late on my period. I'm never late. Last month my period was only 3 days instead of 5 and it was wry light. More like spotting. I've taken 3 home pregnancy tests. 2 first response tests and one first response digital test. I don't know why I'm late or if I could be pregnant.. Someone help?!

You could be pregnant or you may have just not ovulated. Wait and see if you miss a second period and if you keep getting negative results, see your doctor.

How long should I wait to test again?

wait until your next missed period is 1 week late.

However, if you are anxious (which I would definitely be if I were 18 again) then you should go to the doctor and tell them whats going on and you want to know why you are so late.

It may turn out to be nothing, but it's better to know than stress about it.

I wasn't stressing until now. I have the symptoms of periods. Cravings, cramps, irritability. But I have not started and it's been happening for a month.

Stress can cause your body to crazy as well.

I think the best thing for you at this point is to go to the doctor. Otherwise your head will be spinning about whether or not you are pregnant.

Good luck! *hugs*
