So, as of today, my period is 6 days late, putting me at 37 days from my last period. My periods (since off birth control) have been between 27-31 days, with the last period, in December, coming in at 35 days. That may have been late because I was coming off a natural miscarriage, I was only maybe 2-4 weeks when I miscarried. My last period started 12/21. On 01/18, I had super light spotting was just when I wiped, only on one bathroom trip. Once I realized that bleeding was not continuing, I was hoping it was implantation bleeding. So here I am 6 days past when my cycle should start.
My breasts are really sore, but other then that, there are no signs/symptoms. Today I woke up and was having some spotting, only when wiping and it was light pink. Then the color started changing to brown, but still only when I wipe. I went to a pregnancy center and took a urine test and it came back negative. They said I should wait a week or two, then go back if I don't have my period. I don't have insurance, so going for a blood test is out of the question. Should I just play the waiting game and act as if I am pregnant or should I buy a couple HPT? And if I'm really not pregnant, where is my period? I haven't changed anything in my diet/lifestyle. And I no stress can influence women's periods, but I have been way more stressed in the past and that's never effected anything. Any help/advice will be appreciated.
