Question:

I am 27. Three months ago I got married and have had my regular periods since then. My cycle is usually 25 days. This month I was expecting my periods to be on by the 17th of this month as I had my periods on the 19th or the 20th last month. I have yet not got them. I have recently joined the gym this month and am working out for the past 15 days. Is this the reason of my periods being delayed? I don't want to be pregnant now. How can I know if I am pregnant? If I am, what should I do next? Will an abortion increase the chance of me not conceiving in the future?

Answer:

Many things can throw a cycle off. It doesn't have to be the exercise, though extreme exercise can alter a woman's menstrual period.

I certainly hope you are not pregnant because it is very obvious that you are not fit to be a mother at this time. The utter selfish attitude that you display is appalling. "But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!" (II Timothy 3:1-5). The idea that you would consider murdering your own innocent child simply because you find it inconvenient to be pregnant at this time is disgusting. It is you who decided to marry and have sex with your husband. Such is right and proper, but to then turn around and consider murdering the result of you and your husband's lovemaking over such a selfish attitude!

I won't comment on the chances that an abortion will harm your ability to conceive in the future, but it will increase your chances of facing God's wrath. "These six things the LORD hates, yes, seven are an abomination to Him: A proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, a false witness who speaks lies, and one who sows discord among brethren" (Proverbs 6:16-19).
