When you see your physician they'll ask you about stressor, sx's of menopause and any history of irregular menses. You will want to make sure they check your thyroid level (TSH) and a prolactin level. They will also perform a pregnancy test at the office. Further, a gyn exam should be performed to ensure normal anatomy. After all that is completed, you should have some answers. Remember sometimes this type of thing can happen with no clear cause.
Definitely get a blood test done. I had 4 months worth of negative tests and finally got a positive blood test and got to listen to the baby's heartbeat the day I found out I was truly pregnant...at 16 weeks
I am so glad to finally hear from someone who has actually had that happen to them! I have so many questions! Did your doctor say why this happens sometimes when HPTs just won't pick up a pregnancy?? Is it common!??
They said that my hCG levels just didn't go up so it wouldn't register on the urine test but that blood tests could pick it up. They never did give me a definitive answer as to why. My only thought was my weight was so low when I got pregnant b/c I didn't even start showing until well into my 6th month.
Did he say how common that is? Does it happen to more women then people realize??
Hello ladies. I am in the same boat. I am 22 years old and my periods are normally regular, typically a 33 day cycle. My husband and I were pregnant earlier this year, but I miscarried 4 weeks later. Now, as I am writing, today is October 3rd, and my last period was on August 26th. That means I am 6 days late and on a 39 day cycle.
I have taken 3 HPTs and all came up negative. I have been very tired lately, dizzy, naseous (I can barely brush my teeth without gagging), I have lower back pains, my appetite is all screwy (I had saltine crackers and peanut butter for dinner the other night), my breasts are tender, I am VERY moody, my skin has broken out more than usual, and I feel as though I am on my period, but I am not bleeding.
I am started to get very confused as to why my period is SO late. I haven't changed my diet, my exercise, been on any medications, been sick...everything is the same as it has always been and I can't figure out why if I am so late, why the home tests say negative.
Any ideas? Any comments or advice are greatly appreciated!
