im sexual active with my fiance. We were trying to get pregnant but gave up a couple months ago but we don't do anything to try to prevent oursleves from getting pregnant. My last period was June 25th. In the past week or two I've pained like 3 pounds. I haven't been under any stress or anxiety.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe,as you are sexually active and have missed your period pregnancy should be ruled out .Do urine pregnancy test at home and morning urine sample should be used.

Other possible causes of missed period like hormonal imbalance, weight gain,PCOD,thyroid dysfunction,ovarian cyst.
And you should consult your gynecologist and further investigations like ultrasound ,blood work like Thyroid function test, LH ,FSH etc may be advised for further diagnosis and management.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.
It’s my pleasure to continue this conversation until you satisfy.
