No period?

Tue, 08-23-2011 - 8:12am

My period is 10 days late with swollen breasts and light moderate cramping. when i ovulated my bf and i had lots of sex. I've taken a dozen pregnancy tests that had shown a faint line after the ten min mark. (half of them) then i took a digital and it said not pregnant. Im getting a blood pregnancy test tomorrow. could i be pregnant? If not then why no period, but cramping and swollen breasts? Im not under any stress and havent changed anything. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you

Hi there,

I'm glad you've made an appointment for a blood test. That test should give you an answer either way about possible pregnancy.

Did you and your partner use protection while having intercourse? Are you taking any birth control? Birth control changes may cause a disruption in your cycle as well as illness or stress. Are any of those things a possibility?

im going insane not knowing! I went and got the blood test taken and they said 2-3 days for a result. Wow! Now im into the what ifs. What if something else is wrong. What else could be going on?

Oh, I can only imagine how hard it is to wait! Not knowing is just the hardest thing because your mind just wanders. Honestly, I'm not sure what else could be going on. Since you are not on birth control and you've had no increased stress in your life, it is hard telling. Have you been ill at all? I know that sometimes an illness can cause a disruption in your cycle.

Keep us posted and let us know what you find out when you get your results back. HUGS to you!

I'm sorry you have to wait so long for the results. That does seem like a long time to wait. There are a lot of reasons periods come late and sometimes not show up at all. I hope you either have your period soon or get an answer from your doctor about the blood test results.

Are you hoping/trying to get pregnant? If so, you might want to check out the TTC boards on iVillage as well. Good luck!
