Here is the back story: My BF and I don't use condoms because I have an IUD. I track my periods on my ipod and they are pretty regular, but the way that they are is
regular. Start off spotting, get a heavy flow the next day, and then it tapers off, lasting a week and ending in spotting again. I know we had sex during fertile days that ended in him ejaculating in me.
The week before my period was to start I was spotting to light flow. I usually must use super tampons, this time I was getting away with the regulars with not much on them. I had cramps like my period but that was it. The spotting lasted about 5 days.
I took a test yesterday, the day I was supposed to start my period, and it was negative. I used a "first Response" test that says you can use it up to 6 days before you miss your period. What I didn't know is that they expire and I've had this one for a while.
First Question: how long are they good for?
Since Monday I have been beyond exhausted. I felt like I was falling asleep at my desk, took my break and then slept hard and heavy for half an hour. I have never done that before! I just simply can not wake up, I'm forgetting things and being very flighty at work. I kinda feel nauseous, it comes and goes in waves. I'm having dreams about being pregnant.
I do not feel like I am going to start my period at all and so far I'm late by one day. I'm worried that I'm just over thinking this and that I'm tricking myself in to thinking I'm pregnant when I'm not.
Is that test accurate? Could it be too old to work correctly? Since I have the IUD I know my chances are low, but also that if I am pregnant I need to get in to a Dr. Asap.
I know every women, and every pregnancy is different, but any words of advice, guidance, or suggestions are appreciated. I'm about to burst out in tears and have a full freak out about this.
