Missed Period Pull Out Method

Alexa - March 20

My boyfriend and I have been together for more than 2 1/2 years and have been using the pull out method the whole time with no problem. I suddenly realized a few days ago that I missed my period! I am now on day 36 of my cycle, should have gotten my period about 8 days ago. I am usually extremely regular. Then I realized that we had s_x (he pulled out) on a day I was fertile last month. I've been peeing a lot, my appet_te has been insatiable, and I've been feeling a lot of slight cramping, not period like cramping but different, like little twinges in my lower abdomen, for about the past week. I also felt a little nausous today and last night. No other symptoms. I took a test on Friday and it was negative. Also, we had s_x yesterday and I noticed a little bit of old brown blood. I wonder if it may have been some old implantation blood that got dislodged. I wouldn't mind being pregnant, I've been feeling ready for a baby, but I know my boyfriend wouldn't want me to be. He's been having a lot of money problems lately. I guess if I don't get it in another week I'll take another test. Do you guys think I'm pregnant?

Baby dust to you, Alexa, and I hope the money problems are resolved soon. It does sound as though pregnancy is a possibility. Take a home test once a week until you miss your second period, then go see a doctor.

Alexa I too use the pull out method and my dr told me it's only 60% effective and you will get pregnant using only that method!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 I am freaked out cause I have a 4 yr old and a 6 1/2 mo old and we are not ready for another one, I am not sure if I am preg or not cause I am b___stfeeding and I haven't had a period since Sept although i currently stopped pumping and dumping when I go to work my period should have returned by now. So I don't know what to do I have taken a preg tests and it was neg, so alls we can do is wait. Let me know when u find something out.. good luck too you?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you for the well wishing Grandpa Viv. And I'm sorry about your stress moe. Could it be stress causing your period to be late? Neg pregnancy tests are a good sign at least. :) Still no AF for me. I'm kind of nervous. It's definitely not the best time for me to be pregnant either, although I would make the best of it if it has happened. Fingers crossed for all of us that the best thing is going to happen.
