Yes, for about 2 months now, and we did have intercorse on the 19, 20, 21, 22, 24, and 25th... I took a test this morning and it was neg :(, but I still have alot of symptoms... I don't have morning sickness, but my b___sts are DEF swollen, ect... I dont know what to think... Thank you for the advice...

Colina, don't start to give up hope yet. If you can't get a positive by the 24th using first morning pee, then start thinking of other explanations. Best of luck!

Hi grandpa My last period was on July 19 I had protected s_x on the 2n august and unprotected s_x from 12 to 18 cycle is irregular 29-30 .I'm now pregnant ,can I get pregnant a week before my period?or the condom did not work I'm confused I'm now 7week and 4 days.please help me to understand this situation. Thank you


Grandpa Viv - September 20

It is far more likely that you had a contraceptive mishap during your s_x at ovulation time. If the condom was intact, then perhaps sperm found their way home during foreplay or afterplay. That can happen from dribbles, touching, second innings etc. Think back and let us know what you think might have happened. Best of luck going forward.

He went straight to the bathroom ,and the condom was not broken.also if the conception was at this period on the 2nd I should be 9 weeks pregnant rather than 7 weeks.but please grandpa tell me if it is possible to get pregnant a week before my period?I just need an answer to understand so that next time I will be more prudent.... Thank you

Hi I reckon u can get preg a week before ur period!!


Kell123 - September 20

If your 7 weeks then you must of conceived on the 2nd of august!!


Grandpa Viv - September 20

Yes, well, 7 weeks and 4 days does go back to conception about August 12th. The accepted wisdom is that menstruation follows ovulation by 12 to 16 days, so in your case ovulation must have been delayed, and you were about to have a cycle quite a bit longer than 29-30 days. Stress or sickness (maybe meds) can cause this. Were you having an exciting summer vacation? Many women can track ovulation by a cramp, cervical mucus, libido, and cervical position. Those ttc also resort to basal body temperature (BBT) charting. Here's a question - when did you first start early pregnancy signs - was it before the 12th?


Yakoumb - September 21

Grandpa, Yes I was very stress at this period because I was organizing a big event and also exiting to spend a week home with my fiance and family, i'm leaving abroad. I did have my first start after the 12th my b___st were painful but I thought it was because of my period which was suppose to be on the way.


Grandpa Viv - September 21

That is probably the answer - ovulation delayed 10 days due to stress. Best of luck going forward!


Kell123 - September 22

Grandpa - I can't believe it I got my first positive tonight.


Grandpa Viv - September 22

Congratulations Kell123. Thanks for the feedback. I bet you had just about given up. That just goes to show that you may not get a positive until three weeks late - or maybe you too had a delay in your cycle last month. Happy days!


Kell123 - September 23

Thanks grandpa- I was getting so up tight but I will let you know how far gone I am so then I will then know for sure when I conceived, speak soon and thanks again for all your comments. :)


kaesea - September 27

OK guys I need opinions and wondering if anyone else has experienced this and what the outcome was. My last period was Aug 13th and was normal. My cycles are regulare and are 28 days, give or take a few hours. My husband and I use condoms but on the 6th of Sept,had a malfunction. It is now Sept 27 and I have still not started. It seems unlikely that I would be ovulating on the 6th, but the only times I have ever been late were with pregnancy. I have take 4 home pregnancy tests and all are negative so far. My b___sts are now very tender. I have had a little cramping but nothing bad and no blood of any type ie red, brown, pink...What do you think? I have also been peeing more often, but thoughtt that could just be my imagination. Are the missed period, sore b___bs and the "oops" just coincidence? Could I have been ovulating that late? If I were prego, shouldn't the HPT be showing positive by now?
