Late period, negative test, pregnant?

Hi i need some advice, we've been trying for a baby since april last year. I have irregular periods with a 36/37 day cycle. This time my period hasn't arrived, we're currently on day 42 with no sign. I did a test yesterday but it was negative although i have had a few symptoms - swollen stomach, tiredness, off my food, light cramps but not painful more uncomfortable and bloated. All help and or advice appreciated

Did you use a clear blue? If not, you should get one, they are the most reliable ones. And use the first urine of the morning as the hcg-level usually is highest then. The symptoms sound good, so good luck to you :)

hi newlywed, no i used another type and tested when i got home from work - will give it a couple of days then try with first morning urine using a clear blue. i'm just worried as i had what the doctors at the hospital think was a burst ovarian cyst last sept and some of the symptoms (late period, swollen stomach) are similar to how i feel now apart from the lack of abdominal pain.

As long as you don't feel any pain, I would try not to worry too much about this. You do have some additional symptoms after all! If it starts to hurt, you should go and see a doctor, but there's a good chance it is not a cyst. Fingers crossed!

I am 12 days late and had some clear CM leading up to period which has started again... My other symptoms are feeling very tired and lethargic... Any ideas I did 2 HPT last week both negative.. I don't feel pregnant so know its not that.

thanks for the advice newlywed, i guess only time & another test will tell. In the meantime i will be straight to my doctors if i feel pain anything like i did in sept as it was awful :( fingers crossed it's pregnancy as both my fiance and i would be delighted! :)

Update - my period arrived today, day 43. It seems it was an unusually long cycle. A little bit disappointed but relieved it's not another ovarian cyst :)

I know it is very old post .. hope somebody answer me

Hello All,

I generally have 31 -32 days cycle and last period I had on 12/26. And had unprotected sex on (1/6) 12 th day and on 16, 17 th day,for the first time I had spotting of dark red blood when I wipe with tissue . I assume it was ovulation spotting. I was suppose to start my periods on 1/26 and it hadn’t started yet. Done 4pregnancy test (one on 1/25,1/29,1/30,2/3) all came negative.. So late periods actually is stressing me out .. Anybody have any idea what is happening would def help me ..This is happening for first time.. was planning to have doctor appointment sometime this week.

really appt ur response thanks ..

Hi Hun I have no experience but if I was you I would go to your gp and request a blood test Hun as you were due on 26th January! It might be early still so you could check when your 10 days late as you might not have high hcg level. Make sure it’s your first morning wee too when you test. Let me know how you get on Hun the spotting sounds good though if planning on having a baby ! Do you have any cramps or tenderness in breasts. Xx
