RARE late period, pregnancy test negative.

I am 27 years old and husband and I have been trying to conceive for 1 year.  Dr. just diagnosed infertility and ordered a semen analysis (the 1st step for us) but we haven't done it yet.  Now, my period is 5 days late (I calculate like a crazy woman).  I am NEVER late and was sure THIS WAS IT.  Lo and behold the test had a big minus.  I cried.  I didn't test in the a.m. but it says you don't have to.  I am scared to test again just to see another sad result.  I feel queasy but maybe I am wishing these symptoms on.  How accurate are these tests??  How long should I wait to do it again?

Thanks!!

Update: I just had my doctor's appointment. They did another urine test which came back negative. He did a pelvic exam and said everything looks ok. He thinks I am not preggo but said there can still be a chance. Maybe I ovulated late. But still confused. Even if I ovulated late that was some time ago. I am now 16 days late. I am never, ever late. Soooo confused. He did some bloodwork to see if I ovulated. Guess time will tell. Just want to know a definite yes or no. I just hope if I am preggo and my hormones are low that this pregnancy will go to term. I can't go through another miscarriage. Last year I had two missed miscarriages back to back. I don't wish that upon anyone. Good luck to you all. Baby dust!!!!

Did you ever find out what was going on?

I would try a blood test; if that doesn't work, ask for a pelvic exam and an ultrasound. Maybe try going in around 8-10 weeks?

Anytime you have sex without a condom, you risk getting pregnant, and getting a lot of nasty STDs. So yes, you could easily be pregnant. If you haven't taken another pregnancy test or gotten your period, take one first thing in the morning or call your doctor for a blood test and exam.

WOW so glad I found this site! I thought I was the only one going through this, anyway, well I'm 21 yrs old, I've been w/ my bf for 3 yrs this month, & we've had unprotected sex for 2 yrs now, we planned on having a baby but nothing ever happened, I've never taken any type of birth control either. I'm 9 days late (I'm never late) & took 2 HPT & both came negative, I haven't had any type of spotting but I've been having cramps, I usually have cramps a day or 2 before my period, but so far, nothing. I've also noticed I get real sleepy & I've been eating more than the usual. Will keep updated!

hi everyone im 26, DH and i been ttc for almost 3 1/2 years now its crazy how many of us are going through this. my period is 16 days late all test came back negative i havent had a late period since this one time in 2007. its so hard not to be stressed about this stuff. Best of luck to you all.
Avatar universal
I've been reading forums like this for weeks; now I just feel like joining in!  

DH and I are 4 years married and TTC since Nov 2010. I am typically a 36-day cycle (up from 28 since I came off BC, which I was on for 10 years). I was due Oct 7 so I am now about 33 days late.  I've taken 5 HPTs, all negative.

This is my first time being this late, so it's hard not to be optimistic. I had 5 days of very light spotting from Oct 20-25 (I am hoping it was IB). I've had no other strong symptoms, but I have had a few minor things (that could be all in my head) like sensitive nipples, a little heart burn, a few days early on when I was dizzy, some itching (no idea what that's all about), and the urge to eat EVERYTHING.

My doctor and all the women I've talked to seem to just think I've missed a period so I'm waiting until the 12th (3 days) which is when my next period should be do. I'm going to be really sad if it comes, but I don't feel pregnant really so I guess I should expect it. If I've actually missed a period then I think it's time to talk to the doc about seeing if everything's working all right in there. ><

Anyway, good luck ladies! Baby dust to you all!

I took 3 tests and the all came out negative but then when it came around the time where i suppose to have my period I ended up not getting it. I was 11 days late and before I would get pregnancy symptoms like throwing up, my stomach feeling weird, and lots more. I went to the doctors and they said I wasn't. But I still feel like I am sen though they said I'm not.. Is it possible to be pregnant even though the doctors say I'm not?

Okay here's my story hopefully i can get some answers as the doctors seem to have none for me. First off let me say my periods have always since i started getting them been 28 days cycles and last 5 days of extremely heavy bleeding like one super plus tampon an hr (i know tmi but i want to know whats going on with my body). In September my period was 5 days late had a blood test done came back negative period showed up but was very light where all i had to use was pantie liners, and lasted 3 days. Have been nausea, more tired, sore breast, breast have gone up two cup sizes, gaining weight, using the bathroom more, been alot more hungry especially for foods ive always hated.  October period was 2 weeks late had another blood test was negative.  Period showed up was 1 week with mix of days heavy and light. November period 1 week late first 2 day extremely light bleeding, 3rd day moderate flow then completely stops. Still having pregnancy symptoms, could I be pregnant or is something else wrong with my body? Any help at all would be thankful sorry if was tmi.

4 days late. So here's the story. Weren't on any contraceptives previously had period from 30th to the 7th of Dec. Had unprotected sex on the 13th and took Ella(emergency contraceptives) on the same day. 4 days later had unprotected sex again and took Postinor-2 within 48 hours. Took another dose in 12 hours as directed by the doctor. Didn't experience any side effects just mild cramps within a week after I took Postinor-2. Now I'm four days late and scared as hell. Help? Could I be pregnant?

so i have taken 4 home pregnacy tests all came back negative but still no period 3 weeks late what could be goin on?

Can anyone advise?...
My cycle is an average of 35 days (ranging from 31 to 33 but with one month as long as 40). My partner and I try to have sex every few days throughout the month to maximise the chances as I'm unsure exactly when I ovulate.
I am now on day 31, is it too early to test? Should I wait until my average day 35 or even until day 40?
I can't stand the wait! We have been ttc for 7 months.
Any advise would be appreciated. X

i have. Me and my husband have a 2 year old daughter and were trying for a baby then we stopped thinking we weren't meant to have another baby after 2 months of trying, and had no problems conceiving our daughter. But i had a period 10/30/2011 and i am 3 months late. My doctor told me my body is stressed i am only 25. But i was never this late and i ALWAYS had my period every month. I am having pregnancy symtomps but i have had 3 urine pregnancy test and 2 blood test and they still show negative. I am at a loss why i could be missing periods if i am not pregnant. How could i not be pregnant if i havent had a period in 3 months. I am worried though because if i am then i need to be careful because my doctor wants me to take prevera (medication to start my period) but it could harm my baby if i am pregnant and i am taking these pills.

I was expecting AF last sat. 8/2/14 but never showed....I figured that my calendar was off so I didn't panic! The days went on and still no AF so on tues I took a hpt Tuesday 8/5/14...it showed a faint line (possible positive) so I asked a dr friend and she said prob yes that I was.....she had the same result her 1st preg. Well I decided to wait a few days and take another test, so this morn Friday 8/8/14.....this time it said Negitive and I have some brownish discharge. I'm 33y.o. it bothers me b/c I have never been late except for in late May when I had strep (I thought then I might be prego but read that being sick can affect AF so no worries......but other wise I am ALWAYS REG. This time I really thought it might be and even after this morn result.....I'm still not convinced that I'm not prego.....I have a lot of the symptoms such as......extreme tiredness, queasy/nausea that is off and on through the day, sore/tender breasts, crazy emotional, frequent urination, head aches, lower back pain, slight abdominal cramping, & 8 days overdue for AF! Can anyone give me advice......I'm not completely convinced that I'm not prego yet......Please Help!

After that, we used condom. By now, I was spotting for almost 5 days. In my first day spotting, the color of my mens is light red. Then in the next day, brown. On the third day, light red again. Fourth day was light brown and lastly color brown again in my last spotting. I dont know whether if im pregnant, I took pregnancy test and it turned out into negative result. Im irregular period since I gave birth, I dont know whether if im stress or im delayed. Help me im so paranoid, Im not ready to have a second baby. Thanks.
