period always regular, now late am i pregnant

my period is always 28 days. my period has only been late once in my life, and that was when i discovered i was pregnant with my son. i know from past experiences that i took at least 10 pregnancy tests, before i received a positive result, which at the time i was 6 weeks by the time i ound out i was pregnant. this time around i am approximately 10 days late, preg test still negative, but it feels like i am pregnant. i have nausea, sore boobs, and in the past when i was pregnant with my son, i remember feeling as if my period wanted to come, but never did. well recently today i have began to see brownish/pinkish spotting only when i wipe myself, nothing flows to the pad. could this mean i am pregnant? or is it that my period just cam late? I haven't been under any unusual amount of stress lately, so why would my period be late, i am not on birth control, and i always have my period every 28 days. please give me some advice.

If not on birth control, it is not uncommon to have a an irregular cycle or even skip one month.   You could always wait a few more days and test again, but the OTC tests are pretty sensitive now.  Good luck.

maybe i should have gave more information, my son is currently only 3 years old, so the tests today are much like they were 3 years ago. my periods have always been regular rather i was on birth control or not. my periods always come every 28 days without fail, unless i am pregnant. thanks for your help anyways. i am a nurse, and i never knew that it is common for a period to come late just because a woman is not in birth control. i thought the opposite was true, that birthcontrol can sometimes cause break through bleeding, although some doctors use bcp to regulate an irregular menstrual cycle. most of the time if a woman's cycle has been regular for most of her life, it would seem strange in my opinion for a usually 28 day cycle to change.:)

Hi, my husband and I have been trying for a baby since January this year. I usually have period on time, maybe one or two days late. However, this month I am now 10 days late and still nothing. I have back pain, feel nauseous and feel v. tired. I have done two hpt's(one on day 5 and one today)and both have come back negative.  feel like I want to come on for a period but nothing. Getting really fed up now because my hopes are getting up and the hpt's coming back negative make me depressed. Please can anyone advise me if they have been in a similar situation? I look forward to all replies.

Lots of women have a late period, and some times a skipped period, especially under the stress of ttc.  You could call your doc and ask for a bloodtest and if that's negative then you could ask him to jumpstart your period.  Then you can be on your way and ttc again.  Or you can wait 1 week and take another hpt.  Call the nurse at your doc's office and ask what she recommends.

Best of luck and baby dust!!

Hi there, reading from some of the above comments, I'm in the same situation.  For the last 3 months I have always had my period bang on the 28th day cycle.  But for some reason this month I'm 3 days late, I have had high body temperature for the last 3 days, and I have been lazy and sleepy more than usual.  I have these little stomach cramps every now and then like I'm going to get my period, but like I said I'm 3 days late when for the last 3 months I've always been dead on 28th day.  I did have a pregnancy test done at my family doctor on the 7th Sept and was NEGATIVE.  Is there a possibility that I could be pregnant?

I have pretty much the same situation. My period is almost always 28 days a few times a day or two later. Two months ago it was 10 days late then started bleeding with severe cramping. I miscarried. Last month we didnt try and period was on day 28 like normal. This month same story 10 days after should have started my period so far light bleeding. I took a hpt 2 days ago and was negitive. Is this another miscarriage or implantation bleeding?

Thank God you are here, I'm going crazy too!!! my period has ALWAYS been 26 days w/ the occasional 27th /28th, since I've been charting ovulation its been 10 days ALWAYS! I am now 11 days late (which as I said, NEVER happens) my breasts are very sore, I'm slightly crampy barely noticable, I have a slight brown when I wipe only (and that just started a few days ago, and only once in a while) last night I woke up ready to run to the bathroom to get sick but didnt and this am driving to work was overcome with neasuea! I have taken 5 htp test ALL negative! I have an appointment for a blood test on Thurs. my husband and I are excited w/ the very real possibility but cant help thinking of the other possibilities as well!  very frustrating! I've been reading that some womens hcg level just doesnt show on urine tests and some take a long time to show! hang in there too and keep me posted!

Hi everyone I did a hpt last night and it was positive, But so weird that it did not show up till a week after my period was due. Because I ended up getting 3 neg test the last being saturday and then tuesday a positve and I also tested at night and it show up. I am so happy but I will be happier after 3 months when things should be safe. I wish everyone luck and I hope your outcome is a happy one, and just because its neg hpt does not mean u are not pregnant.
thanks

Hi, I had slight bleeding with my first pregnancy, after having sex! I went to the hospital and they told me I had lost the baby! They then did an ultrasound and my baby was fine and he is a very healhy 7 yr old boy now. I think its because everything has softened down there, there is a chance for u to bleed having sex. I would go to the doctor and get it checked because in pregnancy any bleeding should be check out.I hope this helps.

I am 7 weeks late, have taken several htp test all come back negative. I have cramping like I'm going to start my period but don't. Sometimes I think I did then check and its just white discharge? I'm going for a blood test. Could it come out positive when the htp was negative? Please help
