    (Kept getting "404" error message when trying to ask elsewhere on this site)

    I'm 39 years old. I have no children and I have never been pregnant. I had protected sex on Nov 10. Per my notes I have started on the 21st or 22nd day. Aug and Oct were exact. I started on the 21st or 22nd day. In Sept. I had a cycle during the first week and again during the last week of the month (over lapping into Oct.) Due to protection malfunction, took EC on Sept.16. I calculated Nov 19th as the 21st day to start. I have yet to start. I was dumped on Nov. 15 via text and have many other stressors that I thought may be contributing to my lateness. Could I be pregnant?

    Dear RMA02,

    A Home Pregnancy Test will answer the question about pregnancy. You can follow up with your doctor, too.

    Sorry to hear about your getting dumped and the 404 error message. I can help you with the second one. Please write to if the problem persists.

    Yours in health,

    Okay so I have been taking the pill for 4 years and then stopped for about 6 months due to no insurange. My period was out of wake during those months but I still got them and they were all normal flow and average cramping like they have always been.

    Then I recently started a new relationship and we started having unprotected sex but he would "pull out." He told me to get back on it so I wouldn't get pregnant so I did get back on the pill, BUT the week before I got on the pill I thoght i was having my period but it was VERY light and like a dark redish color.

    So i've been taking the pill every day the same time as usual and now it's time for my period again, I'm having very very light cramping and normally it's more painful than this, and the period is very very light and a dark redish color again. My boobs are tender and i've been craving things i don't normally eat. I have also noticed i'm peeing a lot more than normal. Could I be pregnant?????
