Hello, I have a question about my period. It was supposed to be last wednesday but I missed it. On friday I checked two pregnancy tests and they were both negative. I have had sex one time since my last period and I am on the birth control pill. My boyfriend and I are going through an extremely rough patch so I have been incredibly stressed and a bit depressed. Also, I was treated for a UTI and had to go to the hospital because of major stomach/kidney pain that it caused. Is it likely that I am pregnant or is it more likely late or missed due to the above things? Thank you.
