Question

First post and a bit confused

May 28th, 2018, 21:18 PM   #1
 
Hi everyone

My first post here and hoping someone can assist.

My OH and I have been together 2 years. He is younger than me but knows that having a baby is slightly more of a priority for me due to my clock ticking.
With that in mind we have been not using any contraception except the ďpull outĒ method which is obviously not 100%. We also had sex three times this month just before ovulation and during ovulation whereby he stayed inside me. (Sorry TMI)
My last period was 27th April (Iím always regular) and I was due to come on on 24th May. Obviously Iím now 4 days late. Iím massively bloated. My legs feel extremely heavy. Iím exhausted. Been cramping on and off for days now so thought AF was coming and had all the usual PMT symptoms a week ago such as the sore boobs (still got those now) and also extremely hungry. I also have loose bowels the weeks from ovulation to period which Iíve had but then that normally turns to constipation just before my day one of period - thatís not happened this time. Iíve stayed loose. Normally when I get to my period due date I lose my appetite and get nausea and lose weight. I took two tests - tesco one brand on 24th - negative. I took 2 little test strips from pound shop today and also negative. Itís strange. I donít know whatís going on at all. This has never happened to me.
Can anyone shed some light on this?
Thanks In advance x

Hi there,

First I would say try and get your hands on a FRER(First Response Early Result). They are can detect low amounts of Hcg in your urine.

Second, your period could just be delayed..
-Are your periods regular?
-Are you stressed?
-Have you traveled long distances lately?

Many things could delay your period but if you think you are pregnant, I would get a FRER and test with FMU. Try to avoid blue dye tests like ClearBlue unless you get the CB digitals, those are fantastic but detect higher amounts of Hcg.

Best of luck honey, let us know how you get on!
