I am now 6 days late with no signs of my af showing up. I have been taking pregnancy test but they've all been negative. I don't understand. should I wait a week and retest? I'm in need of help here. my boobs hurt but they're not that sore my lower back hurts. and I get nauseous but only sometimes. can you help me or tell me what's going on? did I ovulate late? I'm so lost. Thanks
HI! If you were my patient, I would advise you that you may not have ovulated at all on this cycle, and that might be the reason for the delay. Alternatively, you may have a functional cyst on your ovary that is temporarily preventing your period from starting. I usually recommend testing for pregnancy about once per week until either the test is positive or the period starts--whichever comes first. Good luck! Dr B
