    Missed Period?
    avenged89 posted:
    I know there's probably a lot of questions like this but I have to ask anyway. I am 21 years old and have never missed a period. However, last month I was three days late and my period only lasted four days instead of my normal seven days.This time I was supposed to start on January 29 but its the fourth day and nothing. I had a little bit of cramping before my period was due and a little bit of cramping the last few days but no spotting. My husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for a year now but I don't want to get too excited that its finally happened and then get let down. My question is should I take a home pregnancy test and when?

    You can take the test now since your period is late.
