    late/missed period help
    An_246698 posted:
    Ok so my last period started on June 20th of last month, it is now August 8 and i still have not gotten my period.

    I took a pregnancy test around a week after my missed period and it turned out to be negative. I was supposed to start on the 17th of July because my cycles are usually 27-28 days long. my periods are usually regular and consistent, although there was this one time in March where I started twice in the same month, march 3 and then march 25, but i dont think that is affecting my period now since it was more than a couple months ago, but after that month my periods have been regular up till now. I took two more pregnancy tests (clear blue digital), 2 weeks after my missed period and then another the day after in the morning and they were still both negative. I really don't know what's going on.

    I have had protected sex and positively sure we used the condom correctly and nothing broke.
    please help! what is going on?

    Sounds like you simply didn't ovulate that month. It happens to nearly all women at least once during their reproductive years. Nothing to worry about.
    There's nothing inherently dirty about sex, but if you try real hard and use your imagination you can overcome that.
