Okay so my LMP was July 24 so it has now been 71 days and still no signs of my cycle starting.  I have taken 6 HPT and also one qualitative blood pregnancy test which have all came back negative. My last test was on September 23 and I haven't taken anymore mainly because I just keep getting negative test results :( The past 4 days I have been having abdominal cramping on and off but again no bleeding, they only last about 5 minutes then go away on their own.  I'm not sure what exactly I should do next.  I have read lots of forums where other women have went through the same thing and ended up finding out they are pregnant months later only through an ultrasound. I don't have insurance so I cant afford to go to a doctors office to get an ultrasound down and from what ive read online most doctors wont even give you one without a positive pregnancy test. Any suggestions?!

I don't know your age, but I am 34 and when I was missing them last year (I now get them every 2 months, but have gone as long as 3 months and used to be every 28 days on the nose) my OBGYN said I was most likely going through peri-menopause. If you're under 30 I'd think not. but over 30 it's a possibility. Wait another 4 weeks and test again or ask your Dr. what they recommend.

Thanks for the response however I am only 25 so I don't think that's the cause for my missed period. I think im going to call to planned parenthood tomorrow and see what they say. Im concerned that they may try to give me pills to try to make me start my period and if i am in fact pregnant could it harmful??

Hello,

This delaying of periods can be due to stress and anxiety, malnutrition, smoking, depression, overexercising, sudden weight loss or gain (obesity),thyroid disorders and hormonal imbalance due to polycystic ovarian syndrome(PCOS). Sometimes tumors of the ovaries and brain may also cause absence of menstruation.

I suggest you to consult a gynecologist and get investigated for these causes.

I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
