Patient: Hello ,So my partner and I have been having unprotected sex for a while . We weren’t trying to concieve so we used the “pull out” method . I haven’t had a period in 35 days . ( since May 4th ) & it was supposed to come on the 30th of May . Yes its regular. It is a week late this time. I’ve tested home pregnacy test and they say negative . What could this mean ?
