I missed my period, but test is negative..what do I do?

I just realized that there are alot of other people going through what I am going through right now. My last period started on Dec 22 and ended on the 27th. My cycle is pretty normal..every 23-28 days, but there was one time where it came in 32 days. Well, I still haven't started yet...I have taken a HPT one evening and it was negative. I have been cramping and every now and then I get tender chested, and these mood swings, right along with wondering if I'm pregnant or not, are driving me insane. I would be laughing one minute, then totally depressed the next. Normally when I get depressed or stressed out, it causes me to start, but after going through all these emotions and still not starting, it's making me wonder what is going on. Can someone please give me some advice on what to do? I don't know how much more of this I can take. My boyfriend and I have unprotected sex and he uses the pull out method. We had sex on Jan.7th and Jan 28th...is it possible I could be pregnant after only doing it twice in a month? After my last cycle ended we had sex 11 days later...is it possible I was ovulating at that time? Please help me..I need some advice.


Thanks so much!

Anytime you have sex there's a chance to get pregnant.  Worrying about being preggo can make ur period late, so can change in diet, exercise & stress.  If you arent ready to have a baby get on some form of birth control. Pull out method is the best way to get preggo.  If still no period test in a week or see ur doctor.

Thanks for your input...normally when I stress, it causes me to start, even start early. I guess if I don't start by the 14th I will get a clinic test....it just sucks waiting.  Thanks again for your input on this.

If your last period started on Dec. 22 then you are pretty darned late. Not sure when you took the test you mentioned but I know you said you took it in the evening. Maybe you could take another one but this time use your first morning urine since it is more concentrated. Or you could just go straight in to the doc for a blood test which will give you a difinitive answer. If you are pregnant, then it is best to find out as soon as possible so that you can begin prenatal care. AS for the dates you mentioned, yeah you could have been ovulating. Women are all different and can ovulate at any time. And I also wanted to mention that the "Pull Out Method" is not a method at all. From what I hear, that's how my Dad got here.  So if you aren't and don't want to be in the future, you should find an actual method of prevention.
Good luck, I hope you get the results you are hoping for.

Thanks for that input...as far as the test I took, I took it the evening of Feb. 3rd...I also had alot of fluids that day too, which could have also affected the result.

I used to record my period on a calendar.  It seems to me my period is quite accurate.  But I have lost my record since Dec 2005 till Feb 2006. I have no clue where I kept the record.  I don't want to get pregnant.  Four days ago, I went to the drugstore to buy those kit to test my urine and the result turned out to be a 'no'.  And yesterday I went to my family doctor to have a blood test done.  The nurse told me they have got a negative from my test. They told me I've got a '2' and if people get points more than 5, they are pregnant.  Can you explain a little bit about those number.  I really want to know.  Thanks so much!

Wait a few more days and then take another test. Test with the first morning urine.
If the result is still negative and you still have not gotten your period, you can go to the doctor but it is likely that your not pregnant if you are getting negative results.

today marks day 40 for me..yup started my last period jan 26 2010. have an appt to see my gyno wed. thank goodness. taken one HPT first thing in the morning two days ago and it's neg. my cycle is usually like clock work every 28-32 days faithfully. the only time I was late was in october shortly after my grandfather died which was an extremely emotional time for me so one week late wasn't a big surprise considering I cried everyday for 17 days. this month has been like any other. no change in diet or exercise really no unusual stress. my husband and i have been trying to conceive for nearly three years and haven't been all that careful for 11. this is all very strange. i've been thinking the worse like cervical or ovarian cancers or unusually early menopause (i'm 31) feeling some what moody swingy slight breast tenderness tends to come and go. maybe a little more tired than usual but nothing note worthy. not any more nauseated than usual...just getting a little scared I supose...

well looks like I am in the same boat as many others
last period 16-20 January.... period before that 2-6 January ????
I thought it was no big deal because I was traveling and a little stressed I have now been without my period 45days (not missing it lol) no real prego symptoms except about 5 extra lbs that kinda just showed up...... i took 4 pee tests from home and 1 doctors pee test and they were all negative..... doc tried to put me on provera/cycrin to have a period.... didn't work and found out they are supposed to give you a blood test because it can cause birth defects and i did not get said blood test..... I have never missed my period this long..... I am kinda hoping that once I get this lovely military doc to answer the phone that I can take a blood test..... if that shows up negative who knows maybe I will be like the lady above where only the sonogram showed the truth has anyone else had a negative blood test with a positive sonogram?....I have been off BC for about 9mos. and this is my first missed period after trying all 9mos.

Well I have the same problem. I had my last period on Feb.18 and have not gotten my period yet. My periods are pretty normal and I haven't been excersicing, not really stressed and no change in my diet. I already had 2 pregnancy test and they were both negative. I've been feeling sick to my stomach a lot and I'll feel really light headed. I've been pregnant 2 before.. The 1st time I had a miscarriage and then with my beautiful daughter whos now 2 yrs old. I'm calling my obgyn 2morrow to get some blood work done because this whole not knowing thing is driving me crazy.

Well Im in the same boat as some of you. I have missed my period and I have took pregancy test. And well they all show up neggetive. I have went to the doctors and they told me that it was neggative too. I have all the signs of being pregant too. Idc to be pregant but I just want to know. What else should I do.. I have gained weight.. Eat all the time. crave weird things.. Sore boobs.. and ect.. Most of the normal stuff.. always tired even if I just get up..
Dose anyone have any advise on what I should do??!!
Thank You
Oh and for the girl who uses the pull out method.. If you have sex after you get done with your period that is the most time that women are ovualting. So it would be easier to get pregant. And even though he pulls out there might be that chance that he pulled out a little to late.. So dont take the chances if you dont want to get pregant just make sure you use protection.

hello im 31 yrs old and mother of three beautiful kids.  My LMP was on June 24th and it is now July 27th 2010, my period is like clock work every 30 days.  I have NEVER been late, so I am really worried, and I am having early pregnancy symptoms, such as REALLY sore breasts, so sore that I cant wear a bra, mild cramping, some nausea, food cravings, especially for sour stuff and really fatigued.  I took a pregnancy test today, and came up negative.  (but did not use morning urine) which i should of done.  On another note, i also have a tubal ligation, but have read many cases where women have gotten pregnant with a tubal ligation with no problems.  Pls someone help!

i am 2 weeks late for my period and i am not on any birth control. I took a test last week using a morning sample and at first it was negative i came back 15 minutes later and it was positive. So i went to the family planning clinic and did a test again there, using an evening sample this time it came up negative. The lady said that my urine could of been too dilated to pick up the pregnancy hormones. The following morning i took another test and left it, when i came back it was a very faint positive. I didnt understand whether i was or not so i retested the following morning and it came up negative. Can anyone offer me some support, im just so confused as to whether i am or not. I'm developing cravings,got tender breasts, im tired, and have been feeling hot flushes, bloated and even for the past few nights reached to be sick. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I always have my period in the beginning of the month & my period always come normally, & I never missed it. Now it's June 15, which is really late because I never have my period in the middle month. I took 1 pregnancy test at home & it's neg. I went to a free clinic & it's still negative, so they told me to come back a week after this date because it might be too early.

* If you have
- sore boobs
- tired more then usual/ take long naps
- pee alot
- poops harden/ chunks
- gaining weight
- eat alot/ or craves
- nausea/ morning sickness
you are definitely prego even if it's says neg

I've been tired lately but not yet having morning sickness & sore boobs.
I have a 2 year old son & he gives me all of the above after a month of my pregnancy, so after I check in with my doctor to get a blood test & ultra sound, I will let you guys know. :)

Take a test after 1 week. I had this problem, My periods was delayed for 3 MONTHS. I was then new to this place and doctor told me that it may be because of the change of place and climate. After 2 months they took a thyroid and blood test for me. After 3 months I got my periods. Your symptoms says you might be pregnant but worrying about pregnancy may also cause these symptoms. Stress and thyroid can also cause delay in periods. what I would do is, wait for another week and get a test done. If that is negative better consult your GP. My mother is a GP in India, if you have any questions I can ask her and tell you..
