Hey, i posted on her about a month ago when i was raped at a party. It happened March 4th and i was supposed to get my period later that week. My period (or what i thought was my period) came and i thought i was in the clear but it was a very very different period. My periods are usually 7 days and very heavy. This one was 4 days and i didnt have to wear anything half the time. So though i wasnt 100% sure i wasnt pregnant, i thought i would b okay. Well then i started getting so tired i was literally falling asleep in 3 classes every day, i was peeing a LOT as in waking up in the moring cuz of my aching bladder and i just wasn't feeling normal. I took a test and it was negative so i thought i'd wait to let the hormones build up or just wait to see if my next period would come which was due this month on the 8th. Well it is now the 21st and i havent had my pd and i am having not one sign of pms. I also was cleaning out my room and found a pregnancy test i had used a little earlier ( i didnt want my mom to find it in the trash) and it was clearly positive. i dunno if i threw it out too early or mayb since it was a little early to test it took a little longer to detect the hormone. But anyway...this week i all of a sudden started eating like crazy. I'm in sports and i'm usually careful bout what i eat but i havent been able to help it. Today when i came home i had 2 pieces of pizza, oatmeal, ice cream, cereal, hot chocolate and thats not including lunch. I also had been getting weird feelings in the lower part of my stomach. I've been experiencing constipation (sorry lol) and more vaginal discharge (sorry again lol) is that a sign? The thing is i dont think stress is causing my pd to be delayed because im not. My mom knows now so its not like i have to hide it from anyone and i have come to peace with the fact that i may be. And 2 whole weeks is a pretty long time especially when you have the chance of being pregnant. I've also had a hard time getting a full nights sleep...i wake up at 3 and 5 in the morn every morn....i heard that might be a sign...anyone experience that? well...this is long enough so i guess i'll stop here. I just dont understand why i would be so late if everything is ok. are home pregnancy tests always right? does it sound like i should go to the doc to get a blood test instead? I hear some ppl wont get a pos hcg test til 2 or even 3 months but its probably rare. Well any feed back or suggestions will be greatly appreciated . Good luck to everyone else...bye!
That first test that you found again... i wouldn't go by that. The instructions say not to look at the test after 10 minutes because the result can change but it won't be accurate. That being said, I would test again. It could definitely just be stress... But a lot of your symptoms sound like pregnancy, too. Home tests are pretty accurate, but it will be even more accurate if you take it first thing in the morning when you wake up to pee... more concentrated hormones. If you still think you are pregnant if the home test is negative, you could ask your doc for a blood test... those are even more sensitive. Good luck!!!!
I was on the pill and got pregnant. I took a test in Dec. and it came out negative so I was sure I wasnt pregnant. I found out i was pregnant when I was 13 weeks in Feb. I had taken another test cause I still hadnt had my period. I suggest you take another test and if it comes out negative and you still dont get your period, to go see a doctor to be sure.
Hey hun. You've gotten great advice already. After so many minutes, the home pregnancy test is no longer accurate. Your stress could be delaying your period. Also, I would re-test and see what the results are. If they are NEGATIVE, and you still don't have your period, I would see the doctor because you should be getting your period, unless you're irregular alot?
Anyways, I hope it works out for you no matter what. Let us know what happens sweetie.
Hi Megan -
What you saw on the preg test may have been an evaporation line. They pop up after a few hours, and they've gotten me before. If it's been more than 10 mins (or however long they say on the kit) don't read it and try another one in a couple days. I'm 19 and in the same situation, and the waiting just SUCKS! I'm more than 2 days late but usually my period is like clockwork. I'm really spotty but it's so little that it doesn't stain my underwear and I can't see it except when I wipe. The constipation and excess discharge are definitely considered signs of pregnancy, but it's different for everybody. I didn't find out until 6 days after my missed period in my last pregnancy, and it was the most faint line ever. If you can, the blood test done by the doctor is almost always accurate, and it may ease your mind. Good luck and keep us posted babe!
