Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

3 answers
Im 16 and had protected sex with my boyfriend a week after my last period. I have not exercised since last year in october and recently began running for cross country and soccer in december. I am now 5 days late on my period. I took a pregnancy test and it came out negative, what could it be?

My friend runs a lot and misses periods 2-3 months in a row. In the summer I worked out a lot then stopped suddenly and got my period 2 weeks late. If you haven't been having symptoms and your tests have been negative, I don't think you're pregnant.
Take a test to be sure. But depending on your cycle you should typically ovulate around day 10-14 so should not have been ovulating at that time so it is highly unlikely
Any new exercise routine can throw off you periods. I would take another test if you don't start soon though!
