im 19 years old and 8 days late for my period. how likely is it that i may be pregnant?

Posted by rwoiderski

my boyfriend and i are trying to conceive we have been for almost a year now.  he drinks on ocasion and i smoke cigaretts.  i know that stress as well as many other factors can make your period irregular, however i feel that i may be pregnant.   you see my stomach feels DIFFERENT and i an very tired and randomly cry.  i am also looking bloated and have been for almost 2 and a half weeks now.  jason has also noticed all these things.  i however have not taken a pregnancy test yet due to the fact that i do not want to be dissapointed nor do i want it to not be accurate.  i was wondering how likely is it that i may be pregnant?  and when should i take a pregnancy test?

Any healthy couple who times their intercourse perfectly only have about a 25% chance of conceiving per cycle.

To be completely honest with you: Since you are actually trying- no matter how your cycle ends- with a negative pregnancy test your bleed beginning- it will always be disappointing.  

If you are late then go ahead and test.  Then move on from there depending on the result
