I am 26 years old a wife and mother of a 18month old. I have not been on BC since my son was 4 months old. We practice the pull out method and time of my ovulation days. I am currently 9 days late with my period and when I tested on day 5 it was negative. I have changed my eating habbits some, more greens and fruits water only. Also, started working out 4-5 days a week some major cardio but other nights are only squats and arm weights. Do you have any thoughts or suggestions. I am very tired, upset stomach last week but nothing this week and I can cry over anything! Thank you for your advice.

I'm sure you know that the pull-out method is not really birth control.

You may have not ovulated and usually no ovulation means no period. It's common and will happen to most women at least once during their reproductive years.

If you miss a second period and are still getting negative results, seeyour doctor.

It could be any number of things.
A change in diet, changing your workout, etc. can all effect your cycle.

I'd recommend waiting until you are two full weeks late and re-take the test.

If it's still negative than maybe wait to see if your second period is missed. Or, if you are concerned, you can always call your doctor.
