Late period but negative HPT.

My period is seven days late and it has been ten days since the last time I have had sex. I took a home pregnancy test and the results were negative. I have had mild cramping, like I do when I'm on my period, but no blood. All of my normal PMS symptoms have occured. The only thing out of the ordinary is that I haven't started my period yet. My boyfriend and I practiced safe sex and neither on of us think I'm pregnant, but we are still worried about it. Was it too early to take a HPT even though I had completely missed my period? Could I be pregnant, or could the stress from thinking I'm pregnant and exams from school have gotten me off schedule?

Take another pregancy test see what the results is. If it comes negative again call your doctor and ask her if they can do the blood test it's much accurate then a urine one. It could be your worried and your delaying it.


Good Luck....

Hi. Unfortunately I am in the same situation, and its driving me crazy! I hat not knowing. I've been very regular the last three years, and I went off the pill in February to start ttc. I was due on the 8th and now its the 11th. I've taken secveral test because I have a feeling. But they are all negative. I'm going to wait a week then see my Dr. Anyone else had this happen? It so hard to not know for sure!

My cycle last month was 26 days.  I am now on day 30 and still no period.  I took 2 pregnancy tests and all were negative.  I have had a lot of lower ab cramping and lower back cramping.  However, the home pregnancy tests were negative.  Called me doctor today and they are sending me for a blood pregnancy test.  Has anyone ever had a negative home pregnancy test but the blood work came back positive???

Hi everybody,

My husband and I trying to get pregnant for 2 months now. I have never been on the pill and I was sure that this month I would be pregnant according to my ovulation calculation. My period has been late for about 3 weeks now. I have low back pain and mild menstrual cramping occasionally. I took an HPT the first day I was late, I took another HPT the week I was late and I took the last test (a different brand) 4 days ago (two and a half weeks late). All the test came out negative. I don't have the signs of getting my period like swollen tender breasts and pimples all over my face like I always do. I don't feel like I will get my period either, but I really can't understand what is going on with my body and I am a little frustrated. I will go for a blood test but would appreciate comments from people suffering from similar symptoms!!!!

I have just recently experianced the same thing.
I went to the doctor and doctor said i was physically and emotionally going through pregnancy symptoms but yet i was still coming up negative on the HPT's. She pretty much garanteed that i was having en ectopic pregnancy, which means i am not producing enough hormones to show in a urine test. so this weds. i am goin for a sonogram. I pray to see a heart beat. This whole situation is tearing me apart. Im so confused and just wanna know whats going to happen. i need to mentally prepare and so does my fiance , but how can u if its not for sure?

I went to the doctors and got examined and got a blood test. It is negative I am not pregnant. So I can say that even if your period is late for 55 days as it was in my case there is chance that you are not pregnant.
Your body ovulates once during this cycle and according to the ovulation calculation you think you ovulate after approximatly 14 days from your last period but for this case the ovulation time shifts. As you know the true ovulation date is 14 days before your upcoming period. So in my case I got my period on the 55th day which makes my ovulation date the 41st day which is long after the date I thought I was ovulating!!!

I am four days late and 37.  My husband and I have been trying to get PG for almost 8 months now. I am on 100mg of Clomid. I have no systems of starting my period or even being PG.   I have done test after test with my doc in the past few months.  She tells me I am no where near mentapause.  I am coming out of a cold.  I have been on cold meds and wondering if that has something to do with me being late.  I did not realize I was late until 2 days pasr.  However,  I have had a cold in the past and I was not late then.  I read that I should wait a few more days and then test again.  Any ideas???

Yes I have taken a three home PG tests everyday in the mourn.  They have been all negative.

I am 4 days late on my period. I've taken 2 HPT and they say negative. 3 weeks ago I went to the er for some reason and the doctor did a blood test and it said I wasn't pregnant. My husband went online to see how accurate blood tests are and it said that blood tests are 98.9% accurate within a week of my period, but I got one 15days before my period. I don't really know what's going on because I'm honestly not stressed about anything. My husband and I are trying to get pregnant. I'm so confused...

i'm definitely in the same boat. i've been a "negative" for 51 days. i'm starting to get worried. i have a pretty good idea of when i ovulate, because i actually get pain from it. and it was definitely while i was with my husband. now i'm at 51 days and i don't know what to do. they took a test and it was negative, but they aren't convinced so tomorrow i go in to do blood work. i'm praying something goes right because she gave me a scary alternative of possibly having some type of ovarian syst or something.
