I have always been on a 28 day cycle. I am regular and always have a period down to a T with the same 5 day flow. Which is why I am so concerned. I was due three days ago. My last period was august 25th. Yesterday I spotted not even a dime size of blood on a liner, and same as today. I have had very bad stomach and back cramps for the past 5 days. I am sexually active with the same partner of over a year. We do not use "protection" but we do practice the withdrawal method. (yes I know this is not effective). We have both been told we are infertile. Am I over reacting or should I go take a test?
As a woman gets older her cycles begin to change. Stress, illness, and medications can delay ovulation- which lengthens the cycle (making it seem as though you are "late" but in all actuality things are moving as it should)
If you want to take a test then go right ahead if it will make you feel better
