Stress can make you late on your menses as well as an std. I am not sure if this is your partner or not. I would guess stress. Because you are thinking about it, it won't come. Stop worrying and it may come. But definately keep your appt with your gyn. Also your thyroid meds can make you not have a period. Especially if you have stopped it or it was not the right dose. Have you had your levels checked?
You may have just had an anovulatory cycle-- you didn't ovulate. It's fairly common for women to have one or two months a year without ovulation, as it can be caused by stress, illness, medication, travel, strenuous exercise, weight gain/loss, etc. Anyway, your body tries but for some reason doesn't succeed in ovulating-- it is ovulation (and the hormones that go with it) that causes you to have a period (af). Basically, what happens is that your body prepares the uterine lining for an egg (which is never released- no ovulation), and it continues to grow until it can't support itself and then breakthrough bleeding finally occurs (not techinially menstruation). Because your body may have tried to ovulate several times in this cycle, and then needs to wait until the lining "collapses", an anovulatory cycle typically is longer than your normal/regular cycle-- and of course, will give you a bfn on pregnancy tests. If you don't get your af soon, your doctor can give you some meds to help bring it on and "reset" your cycle.
Thank You for your help with your responses.
I have a question. What does bfn and af stand for?
neg preg test and period.
If i were you I would retest, if you have the symptoms and you are regular, your body may be taking its time with the hcg to register. There is such a wide scope of exceptable hcg levels. I would retest and see where you are. Get a bata hcg too that will give you the level (quantitive) not a qualitive.. That will just give you yes or no.
Paulette is right, you should also retest in a few days--just in case! A friend of ours didn't get a + on her hpt until she was 8 weeks pregnant... I've heard of even some people never getting a + on their urine tests (although a blood test will show it).
AF= "aunt flo" your period.
BFN= "big fat negative" negative pregnancy test.
(There are a whole bunch of other abbreviations
regularly used on here...
hpt= home pregnancy test
ept= early pregnancy test
BFP= big fat positive (+ pregnancy test)
ttc= trying to conceive
dh= darling husband
dd= darling daughter
ds= darling son
Thank you for explaining all the abbr. to me.
I should have got the af because I always call mine auntie flow.
Thanks for all the advice too.
