    Hi I am 23 years old and am currently 25 days late for my period. I do take regular birthcontrol however in the 11 years I have been getting my monthly cycle. I have never been late and all of my periods have been 6 days to the T. Along with being late I have been experiencing breast tenderness and heaviness, nausea, stomach cramping, and some light spotting. I am concerned I could be pregnant so I have taken a variety of pregnancy tests and all negative. I am having a blood test done this week, but I was wondering what else this could possibly be

    Skipping a period while on birth control is common and usually nothing to worry about. It happened to a regular poster on WebMD 3 times.
