Question
I am 20 years old, and my period was supposed to start on the 23rd. Me and my boyfriend have been having unprotected sex, because we have been wanting to start a family, and every time we have tried, I would always get my period and this time it is late. And I am just curious, because I told him about it, and he seems really excited. But I don't want to get his hopes up. And I took a test a few days ago, and it came out negative. And these symptoms started on the 23rd of this month. It's just been sore boobs/cramps/nauseas.

Answer
Hi Katie, I can't really tell you over the internet if you might be pregnant. You can contact a pregnancy resource center and see when they recommend their FREE test. http://www.heartbeatservices.org and click on the worldwide directory. Or http://www.optionline.org
You might have been too early with the test you took. Have you thought about marriage? Write me at Carieichel@aol.com Hope to hear from you soon.
