Could i be pregnant?

Pls help
My periods are fairly regular every 28-30 days but at the moment i have gone over by 10 days which is so unlike me.
I had hijama cupping done earlier in the month so am thinking maybe its due to that my periods are late? I asked the lady she said it doesn't delay periods for this long.
I have had on and off period pain and feel really really tired and sleepy
But since yesterday i have a strong dull pain in my lower tummy and lower back pain and my hips and thighs hurt... so am just been waiting on periods to arrive ... but so far nothing!
We are defiantly not trying for a baby at the moment, and have only been using pull out method (sorry for TMI) always have tbh.
Is it possible i could be pregnant?
I haven't done a test as am just waiting for periods to arrive from the dull pain in my lower tummy and every other aches and pains.

Thanks for reading xx

Test. Of course it is possible if you have been having unprotected sex, and the withdrawal method is not a method of contraception.

Sorry but you are trying for a baby if you're just using the pull out method. Which isn't a form of conception.
Wait until your period is due then pee on a stick.

We have always used pull out method, had been working so far 🙈
Will do a test today if i don't start my periods and update xx

Do a test, if your 10 days late you can test at any time of the day don't need first morning pee.

You don't want to do a test; but think randoms on the Internet could advise you on whether you're likely to be pregnant or not??

I was just asking for an opinion! If anyone has fallen pregnant using pull out method.
And i did do a test its negative

Of course people get pregnant using the pull out method - it's not a method.

Anyway first image looks negative second I'm not so sure

We've used the pull out method for 17 years and it always worked for us.

The two times we didn't use the method we had our two children.

There isn't the sperm in pre-ejaculation like they thought. There's absolutely none unless he's just had a wank and not week yet. So there's risidual sperm hanging around the urethra.

So provided your husband has good control of himself it's actually a very effective method.

Depends on the man... some men do indeed have sperm in precum.

Are you sure they're negative? I thought I could see a very faint line on both pics?

confusedat23 Fri 07-Apr-17 19:23:25

I think you could do with getting a First Response Early Result pink dye test just to be sure... you could have just ovulated late but those tests you used and not very reliable x

physicscake Id trust the scientist and years of research over your post. 😆

Foreverhopeful22 Fri 07-Apr-17 21:05:04

Can you invert the colours as I'm not so sure I think second one looks positive

physicskate Fri 07-Apr-17 22:50:23

I'd believe scientists over me too... oh wait, I am a scientist!!

But not that kind... so a quick google reveals the study I read!

Ah Google.

Then it must be true. grin

physicskate Sat 08-Apr-17 08:16:13

Yes. The .gov are world renowned propaganda machines! We shouldn't trust scientific studies!

Ha ha. It's not a method because you must all understand that in the "moment" you cannot always pull out in time. The pull out "method" is ridiculous in my opinion.

haveacupoftea Sat 08-Apr-17 14:58:51

I am not convinced that test is negative confused

Freezingwinter Sat 08-Apr-17 15:02:46

I would try a more sensitive pregnancy test?

BastardGoDarkly Sat 08-Apr-17 15:06:55

Looks negative to me op smile

ummeTZH Sat 08-Apr-17 15:22:07

Thnx guys but am pretty sure its negative been looking at it since yday
Still no periods just cramping
Maybe it the cupping i had causing the delay.
Will test in a few days if they don't arrive

We have been using pull out method for past 12 yrs been working quite well so far but lets see x

Glossolalia Sat 08-Apr-17 15:25:33

What about trying a digital test?

MamaHanji Sat 08-Apr-17 15:26:42

I think the second has a faint line on it.

The pull out method is how my second baby was convenient. Actually the 'start having sex, get interrupted by toddler after 30 seconds' method is how it happened.
