Lemme get to the point....
My period was supposed to come anywhere from the 18th-20th of this month, as it has for the last six months.
It has not. I hadn't even noticed until yesterday, the 22nd...
I have had unprotected sex(using the withdrawl method) about 3 times this month(June)...not a lot right?
Once on the 5th of June. (We were drunk >.< ) Once on the 18th and again on the 21st(This was possibly why I hadn't noticed the lack of my period...SEX!)
Because there is a limited window of time for pregnancy to occur, I decided, 'Hey, let's see if it's possible BEFORE I completely freak out.'
ANYWAY. I did some research. There are A LOT of Pregnancy/Ovulation/Due Date calculators online...perhaps not entirely accurate, but they could be pretty close, right?
I entered my info, such as:
First Day of my last period: May 20th 2011
Length of my Menstrual Cycle(From the start of one period to the start of the next): 31 days(exactly, I counted 6 months back)
And what I learned was that I was very likely at my HIGHEST FERTILITY on June 5th (You might remember this date because it was the day I had drunk, unprotected sex...)
I likely ovulated the 6th of June
It also informed me if I hadn't gotten my period yet, as of today, I should take a pregnancy test.
This was when I got a wee bit nervous.
SO I went down and bought one I could afford, this was the "Answer" Brand... yeah this was the first I had heard of it...
For $7 bucks, it came with 3...I took one almost immediately in the store bathroom.
I was really, really nervous...hands shaking, trying to correctly pee on a stick that would change my life. O.o
Not sure if I did it right, or if I waited long enough, but I saw ONE sinlge pink line (NOT PREGNANT) Tossed it and ran.
I got home and did more research...of course.
I read about false negatives, that you should use first morning urine or urine that had been held in your bladder for AT LEAST 4 hours, and that excessive drinking of water could dilute your urine too much for the stick to read it right.
Well I had peed an hour before I took the test, and my only beverage is water, I drink a glass every hour at least.
SO I attempted to hold my bladder for 4 hours and not drink too much water...I was thirsty and after about 30 mins I was doing the pee pee dance...
I held it for 3 hours, took the test using the cup method this time. Made sure it was submerged for 5 secs and I waited 4 minutes to even look at it.
Again, it was Negative.
I've decided to wait a couple of days and take the last test when I first wake up. Just to be sure.
How likely is it that I am actually pregnant and the first two tests were wrong?
