Hello, I am 13 dpo and 5 days late for my period. The last two weeks, I have been becoming bloated, having mood swings, tender breasts, fatigue, nausea and the occasional headache. The past two days, I have been experiencing frequent urination an excess of both white and light brown discharge, and mild cramping which do not feel as strong as my usual cramps. Also, I am TTC and struggle with fertility due to PCOS. Tested with HPT and recieved negative. Can anyone help me sort this out? I cannot see a doctor for another week. TIA!

I currently am about 10 days late on my period. My last period was on the 29th of May and lasted about five days. My cycles have been about every 27 to 28 days but now being 10 days late I am a little concerned. No spotting, no tenderness in breasts. I have been bloated and cramping occasionally. I do get some headaches every once in awhile as well. I have had some heavy discharge but nothing that seems concerning. I took a pregnancy test on the 4th of July and it was negative. I am wondering if I should take another one this week or wait until I have my appointment on the 16th with OB (for a different reason as to why I made that appointment)? Just don't want to stress myself out worrying about this.

I am on birth control, belara, and on the 4th day I miss it and took it 15 hours late, then on the 5th day i had unprotected sex and on the 6th day I missed belara again and took it 12 hours later. Since that happened I was freaking out and took plan b on the 7th day. After that, i have been taking my birth control on time. But on the 11th had unprotected sex again and after that i read that if you are on birth control and take plan b you should not have unprotected sex until 7 days later. So on the 15th day i took plan b again because i was freaking out. I know that with all these my body is full of hormones but anxiety if also killing me since I don’t know if I ovulated o if I am pregnant. So I will like to know what the chances that I ovulated during those weeks are and become pregnant? Plan b is supposed to delay ovulation, but since I kept taking the birth control would that mean that I did not ovulate. Which of the two unprotected sex would have put me in higher risk of pregnancy? And when is the best time to take a pregnancy test.

My last period was 10/15-10/19. I am a virgin and so is my boyfriend, and we aren't both waiting until marriage. Today 10/26, he had his dick at the base of my vagina. He had just comed, so we thought it was clear, but there was a little bit left. He quickly pulled away and neither of us are sure if it went inside. Is there any possibility I could get pregnant from that? I'm only 15 and I'm kinda starting to freak out.
