I think I'm pregnant

Hi my name is Cassidy and my period is late two months I took two pee test and they both came back neg. so I went to the doctor and took a blood test and it also came back neg. my doc said it might be just stress but then I spotted only once and I haven't had my period yet and the spotting was a week ago. I'm 19 me and my boyfriend (who just passed away last week) always would have unprotected sex we never used protection. I get headaches and nausea and I and I get heart burn all the time. I sleep a lot through the day but I stay up at night. Please I would like to know what you guys think it would make me so happy to know that I'm pregnant because it would feel like I have I have a piece of him with me forever

I'm so sorry for your loss!  That has to be tough.

Unfortunately if a blood test is even negative, unless you're pretty far along, there would be no chance.  Has the doctor run any further tests beyond the blood pregnancy test?

Stress can delay a period, but unless your boyfriend's passing was something long in coming, I don't know that it would have delayed for two months already.  Have you lost a lot of weight, changed your diet, changed your exercise habits, or been very ill lately?  These things can delay a period as can something to do with hormones, which is why I think you need to ask your doctor to run a test for hormone levels if she didn't already.

Hang in there!

Well they took a blood test to check everything else and they said everything is normal but my bf has been thinking I'm pregnant for the last 4-6 months but my period would come but they would be very abnormal like start and stop and and then it would come like two to three weeks late so we would throw away the idea of pregnancy. But my period still hasn't came and I'm really concerned. But I have schedule an oppointment with my obg-yn so I'm hoping she doesn't fing anything wrong with my uterus or something

Stress may well be the causative factor especially considering your sleeping patterns etc sound as though they are in turmoil. I know that I myself stopped having periods for nearly a year during a stressful time in my life.  However, it does sound as though something else may be the issue. You definately would have tested positive by now so the chance you are pregnant is extremely small to non existent.
It may pay to find out exactly what further tests your doctor has conducted as there are other reasons why you have stopped menstruating. Having your hormone levels checked can help. There are several disease processes that can alter these and stop periods. Ask your doctor to include Prolactin levels if they haven't already been done. If elevated it can give you light spotty bleeding or none altogether.
Also your doctor may want to consider a pelvic ultrasound to check your reproductive tract and rule out any abnormal physiology.

Sorry to hear of your sad loss.  
If you are having a problem with coping with this the doctor could refer you to bereavement counselling.

With regard to your missed and irregular periods.  As your hormone levels have been checked out by blood tests and have come back normal, you can rule out hormone problems.

Like thatquietgirl mentions, change of diet and exercise habits can influence the menstrual cycle.  So can stress, anxiety and also if you are anaemic.

Another reason for missed and erratic periods is a condition called polycystic ovaries.

Glad to know that you are going to see a obg-yn to get checked out.  An ultrasound scan will detect whether you have polycystic ovaries or any other problems.

My daughter has polycystic ovaries and can go for months without having a period.

Your headaches and nausea may have something to do with your gastric problem (an ultrasound will show for certain whether you are pregnant or not, by the chances of a pregnancy are extremely slim - sorry.)

Keep off any fried and highly spiced foods and also if you notice your condition worsens after eating or drinking a certain food/drink then avoid that.  Your gastric problem may also be due to your anxiety due to losing your boyfriend so sadly.  Headache problems can be due to gastric problems.  Migraines for example are triggered off in some people by consuming chocolate, oranges, cheese, red wine.  Everyone is different, so keep a food/drink diary to identify any culprit foods.

Make sure too that you do not get dehydrated.  Dehydration can give you headaches.  2-3 litres of water per day is usually recommended.

If your gastric problems to not settle down, it may be worth seeing your doctor to get a barium meal xray to find out whether you have a problem like a hiatus hernia that may be causing acid reflux.  I do not have a hiatus hernia, but do have a deviated oesophagus that sometimes I get acid reflux and feelings of food getting stuck.

Hope you get on OK.

Best wishes.

Well my cycle is still late and I know my body I've read that there are many women who never tested positive and were still pregnant and the only way they were able to tell was through an transvaginal ultrasound. So im going to have my doctor do one on me. Because I don't see why all of a sudden my periods would just go out of wack when they have been regular. I'm kinda scared that something may be wrong with me. I have a lot of the symptoms but the only thing is is that my negative test. Please anyone who's had this happen before help me I don't anyone who's gonna tell me a bunch of stuff and get me scared for nothing

Oh and based on what I've collected from researching it I don't have ovarian cyst Im not in any terrible pain or difficulty using the potty due to any pain I have no symptoms what so ever of ovarian cyst besides the fact that my periods late so if its not pregnancy then it must be stress although I don't see what could have stopped for those two months before my boyfriend passed away. I hope it's not just me wishing it so bad that my body and mind are playing tricks on me
