Period 13 days late

April - posted on 09/17/2009 ( 1 mom has responded )




I am kind of new to this group. I have a 2 year old daughter. I recently got my IUD taken out. Me and my fiance have been having unprotected sex. My period is 13 days late and I was wondering what you guys thought. I have been under stress lately, maybe a little more than normal. I have been nauseated and had indigestion for a few weeks. When I got pregnant with my daughter, I didn't know until I was 2 months along so I don't really remember the first 2 months. I had my period for 2 months with her, wasn't nauseated, nothing... no signs. I took a HPT about 2 weeks ago which was negative. I can't really afford to buy a test right now. I can't get into my doctor's office until October. I just really need some opinions

It is normal to sometimes have a late menses especially if you are under a lot of stress. It's hard to know for sure whether you are pregnant unless you get tested. I assume that since you took out your IUD and are having unprotected sex that you are considering having another child. In that case, don't stress about it until you can get tested or get to the doctor. In the meantime, I recommend that you start taking some prenatal vitamins or at least 1000mg of folic acid daily. It's recommended to take vitamins even when you are trying to get pregnant. Good Luck.
