    very nervous
    An_248480 posted:
    I am 22, and I have been with my boyfriend for 3 years, we have sex quite often. I was on bc for a while but stopped for financial reasons and a short period of time when we were broken up and just never started back. My last period started on Sept. 8 and it was normal, my cycle is about 36 or so days long and we had sex on Sept. 28. My period is late and I am starting to get nervous. At this point if I were to be pregnant I would be one month (from what I can see online) I guess I am just curious of the chances, or is my period not coming because I am so worried? I am a college student and under a lot of stress, I just recently moved into an appt on campus and really strive to make the grades. And I forgot to mention that I am over weight, I did read somewhere that can cause irregular periods. Although I said that my cycle is 36 days, it is not all that regular sometimes its longer.

    No... back ache, head ache, vommiting, bleeding, nausea, food aversions or cravings, my nipples dont look any different???? someone please help, this is making me very scared, definitely not a wanted pregnancy......
