we don't have sex often, 3 times per week if i'm in the mood, we ALWAYS use a condom, and as far as we know, none have broken. yet my period is 1 week late, i already took a home pregnancy test, it came out negative (not pregnant). so now i'm just waiting and waiting and waiting...

any thoughts on the issue?

3 times a week isn't often!? Wholly moley, your husband must be a very happy guy! Anyways, condoms aren't 100% effective, so yes, you could be pregnant. Maybe wait a few more days and take another test.

thats incorrect Shannon. my boobs never hurt when i was pregnant. at all. never got bigger either. so boob pain is not a "tell tale sign" for everyone.

I would say if AF hasn't arrived in the next few days get a blood test. There's a lot of reasons your cycle could be late but this is the most obvious..

Hola Nayuribe! My tubes were tied and i knew right away that i was pregnant again. Tell tale sign...my boobs hurt. No pain. probably no pregnancy. Also test with your fist bathroom in the morning. BTW.....loving Costa Rica, just celebrated our one year anniversary here.

3 times per week, and you consider that 'not often'??? You aren't married with kids, are you..........?

You could simply have had an anovulatory cycle due to stress or environmental factors. I had a couple that threw me for a loop. As much as it sucks, you may need to just wait. With a period a week late a negative test is pretty likely to be accurate.

3 times a week is pretty often! I wish I had your libido...



Stress can definitely be a factor that would cause a delay. Definitely give it another week and see a doctor if nothing happens.

Broken or not a condom is not 100% effective. Test in the morning. Wait a few more days. You could be stressed out or have a chemical pregnancy.

Gosh, my husband would love sex 3 times a week :-)



On the topic: Have you had any stress lately? That can throw off your cycle a bit. Also any dramatic weight loss. I would wait another week and if it hasn't started then go to the doctor and get a blood test done to confirm one way or the other.
