Late cycle but negative pregnancy tests.


My boyfriend and I aren’t using protection. He is just quick about using the “pull out” method. He pulls out well in advance. I was suppose to start my period on the first but haven’t yet. I’ve taken pregnancy tests but they’re negative. I’ve been feeling emotional, slightly cramping, and tender breasts. But these are signs of PMS as well. I know stress can delay a cycle too. I’m not sure what to think and I just want to know! Any advice?

    The pull out method is notoriously ineffective. Keep taking tests every other day. If all neg I usually wait until I’ve missed second period to get tested at doc, since sometimes it happens. But think about getting on birth control since it’s only a matter of time until you’re pregnant

    Both of my kids were conceived using the pull out method. The first time I missed a couple birth control pills. The second I wasn’t working, so no insurance and I had just stopped breastfeeding. Literally conceived my second the same month I stopped breastfeeding my first. Go to a clinic, and they will test for you.
