Anyone ever gotten a false negative pregnancy test?? I'm freaking out!!!

I just want to add that if you have already ovulated, stress will not delay how long till your period from the point of ovulation. Stress can delay ovulation for sure, but once you have ovulated, the luteal phase (the part of the cycle between ovulation and period) stays a pretty consistent length.

So just because you are stressed or relaxed now will not make your period come sooner or later.

Also, false positives are pretty rare but false negatives can be pretty common, especially if you account for the ones caused by user error.
Ah, it all makes sense now. Goldy is the puppet master!

I had a condom break on me once. No rough nails. No rough sex. Stored properly. Same brand/sizze we always used. Nothing out of the ordinary. It just broke. I ended up using Plan B

Barrier methods have a lesser efficacy percentage, condoms, NFP, spermicide, etc - but they're even still between 88 and 97% effective - probably bc there's more chance of user error.

So if you were absolutely against pregnancy, the latter wouldn't be good to use alone. But still fairly effective if you're aware of your ovulation, which I believe every woman should be. Especially if you're going to be sexually active. That's just a personal responsibility.

So, DP failures are from user error, and, since it's given as an injection, that user error is most of the time because the woman is lying, because if they were to follow the protocol set out by the manufacturer, they would not be pregnant when they get the first injection, or....would not be pregnant when getting repeat injections, if they got them on time.
What kind of condomess [pun intended accidently] are folks using that come off or break?!
And I've never understood using a condom AND bc AND still getting pg?

And I wasn't on BC I just used condoms.

I don't understand the "freaking out" part if you didn't do anything to actively prevent the possibility.
