Advice please.... Missed period or pregnancy? Any similar stories?

Hi there I am just seeing if anybody has any similar stories? My husband and I are TTC.... I have had my coil taken out end of march had one period (slightly longer than normal) and then nothing since.. If I had a regular cycle I would be 10 days late now.... Have done 2 negative pregnancy tests.... And going to ask my GP for a blood test.... Don't want to get my hopes up as my periods before the coil were never regular... But looking to see if anyone has ever missed a period? Or similar stories ... Or just stories in general haha.... I hate this disease that makes everything so tricky and uncertain!! Thanks in advance xxx

I am currently in the same situation. Me and my partner have been TTC for nearly 5 yrs. my periods coming every month, my cycle lasts between 28-32 days. Am currently 7 days late which is the latest I've ever been! Just took a pregnancy test which was negative

Hi

I'm ttc too so really really hoping you have both got lucky this month!

However rhi123 it wouldn't be unusual for your cycles to take a while to regulate, each time I've come off contraceptives there's been very little pattern for the first few months and then all of a sudden gone back to clockwork. Are you temping or using opk sticks? I find it much more reassuring using opks as it gives me a much better idea of whether I am actually late or not, with the bonus of giving some guide to whether I'm ovulating, it's not uncommon for ovulation to vary as much as 7 days in any given cycle, particularly with endo, which then has knock on effect of making you think you're 7 days late when you're actually spot on, might be something worth looking at but definitely ask for a blood test as well x
