if you were taking birth control pills at the time of intercourse, then the chances of pregnancy are very less, as this is the most effective contraceptive
the causes of delayed periods are multiple
it can be a resent illness, stress, hormonal imbalance (like hypothyroid, polycystic ovarian syndrome), change in schedule, addition of any new medicine etc
rarely a single delay in periods can occur without any specific cause also (if earlier your periods were regular)
so, to be sure you can get a blood pregnancy test done
but the chances of it being positive are less because your two urine home pregnancy tests are negative
if the test comes out negative, try to relax
if the test is positive or your periods do not come in the next month or so, then you need to consult your Ob/gyne for a detailed evaluation
My ex and I are getting back together, and we dont use condoms...
i cant tell him...
you seem very stressed out
i am i am 22 divorced mother of a 3 year old
so, to put your mind at rest, get a blood pregnancy test done
im very stressed
it should come negative mostly since you were using contraceptive pills and had two urine home pregnancy tests negative
i got tested for hpv and came postive, could that trigger or upset the pills?
so, in your situation the delay in periods seem to be because of the stress, if your cycle earlier was always regular
i was always regular so now this, im like on a freakazoid time zone
unless you have an active infection of HPV with symptoms, this should not be a factor in delay in periods, but cannot be sure without a first hand evaluation
try to relax and go for a confirmation test
i am on tuesday, but can i still have sex without a condom if i am on birth control?
usually a birth control pill is very safe
so, haveing intercourse while on regular pill without condom is safe
do you know anything about hpv?
what do you want to know?
how do i know who i got it from?
and how long have i had it?
that is difficult to find unless you get all your partners investigated
HPV is an infection which ca lie dormant in ones body
it might or might not produce symptoms
i got a pap smear done last year, and everything was fine and then before that. this past january i got it done and it was hpv postivie
have you had intercourse in between these 2 tests?
i had one in dec 09 and then in jan 11
HPV infection is a little different than other infections
do i narrow it down to the guy i was with then
Several months to years may elapse from acquiring the infection and detection.
ook so its a no answer kinda thing
so, you might have acquired the infection in between the two examinations or even before the first PAP smear
it is difficult to narrow down the source and time of infection
but since you are carrying the infection, it would be ideal to use barrier protection while intercourse
so just to clear up, when do you think i might get my period?
since your vaginal fluids can transmit this infection further
i think he already has it
we found out together, and i told him and he knows
again will not be able to predict the time of periods
but if you relax, ideally they come back in the next month or so
by the next cycle perhaps?
but if you do not get them even then, then you need to consult an Ob/gyne for detailed evaluation to rule out other causes like hormone imbalance, PCOS, hypothyroid and problem in the uterus etc
yes, most probably by the next cycle
ok thank you very much
also taking the emergency contraceptive pill can cause hormoneal imbalance
which can affect the next cycle
what if i take another one
you are most welcome
i would advise against it
taking unnecessary pills will wreck your body's hormones
it would cause further problems
if your pregnancy tests are coming negative, you do not need an abortion pill etc
i have taken 2 in my lifetime. how many is too many?
there is no count for 2 many
how much is the abortion pill, in case i would ever have to get into that position?
but when taken unnecessarily, then even 1 or 2 are not recommended
which *knock on wood* i hope not to
forget about the pill at present
just get a blood test done and relax
ok will try to
thank you for your help and support
all the best
and to you
