I am in exactly the same situation. I have a 32 day cycle. I was due on August 23rd. But its 18 days now, no sign of periods. And still pregnancy tests turn out negative. I get period cramps all the while, severe back ache, feel sick in every 2-3 days and white discharge oozing out like never before. I go to the bathroom every few minutes checking but nothing turns out. I am also scared going to the doctor cause of the fear of negative results. I have had the problem of vaginismus in the past and gone through a lot of pain. Shall take a appointment with the doctor tomorrow. Lets see what she has to say.

Hi so I am 18 years old and am also sexually active. I have a boyfriend and he has never ejaculated inside of me and we normally use condoms except for the occasional quick thing, but even then we do we are extremely careful and it is for only a few minutes. I had my last period around July 16th and it is now September 9th which means it is around a month and 3 weeks late. I normally have an off cycle but not this off. I took a pregnancy test about a week ago and it came back negative. I am terrified. I just started my freshman year at college and I am only 2 weeks in. I come from a very strict family and if anything was wrong I would be in deep trouble. I do not understand why I am this late and I have not gotten it. Although I said I am terrified I really am not that stressed, after i took the test and it was negative i let it float to the back of my mind for a while and i am just starting to get worried again. I don't normally freak out when my periods are late because they are normally a week or two late to begin with but this is outrageous. I have never been to an obgyn before, but when I was younger I used to run a lot and would not get my period for months at a time, but I don't run anything like I used too anymore. I went on birth control for a while but have been off of it for over a year. I find it hard to believe I would be pregnant right now because I have absoutley no other symptoms. I have been gaining some weight around the tummy but that has been going on since the beginning of summer not just the last month or so. Please help, or share experiences, anything. I really hope I am not pregnant or that something is wrong where I won't be able to have kids in the long run :/

So I have been trying to figure out if I am pregnant and have read these comments at least 3 times... hoping I would catch something - however I hate that no one replys with an outcome - that is what brings me here!

July 21st was my last period and on August 6th I had a day of spotting ( i suspect implementation). So 1 week before my period I started to test at home - all negatives - I tested about everyday (the 6 days before a missed period is a joke and waist of money - wait until you really miss your period). Then I missed my period and still got negatives - I had some symptoms like I thought I was gonna start & really moody. Anyhow so 9 days after missing my period and still negative tests I decided to do a blood test - I just felt I was prego - I NEVER MISS A PERIOD - I am pretty regular. So 2 days later the test came back negative - I was super disappointed but knew it wasn't my time - but still I was uneasy about being so late. So this morning, now 22 days late I just woke up and felt the urge to take a HPT and it was a POSITIVE - I was totally freaked out so I took another and it was another bright line... I then called my BFF and she said call the dr. & see if you can get in... so I went this afternoon and the Dr. confirmed I am so prego - almost 8 weeks along....so now I get to wait for my husband to get home, I didn't tell him about this morning cause I didn't want to get his hopes up again!

Just wanted to share my story and tell you if you are TTC totally care for your body like you are prego...you just never know - only you know your body best! It all happens within time!

congrats!!!

I'm in the same boat, sort of. I'm close to a week late and still a negative hot. I' had implantation like bleeding, all sorts of symptoms, and the feeling. What's going on??? I just want to know, and the negative hpts are not convincing me. This all makes me scared of an ectopic pregnancy.

Have you had an ultrasound and all looks good??? You give me hope that I'm not crazy. Thanks.
I will let you all know what happens

Good luck all

hi. my post was on page 15. i finally had my period last thursday. thank god. i suspect i had urinary tract infection since my urine was cloudy at times and i had it several times before. i read on another forum that a girl missed her period for two months and it turned out it was uti that kept her from having her period.

i took the emergency antibiotics i brought from home. not advisable though, as people should not take antibiotics without prescription. who knows, maybe i was really due for my next period so it finally came.

congrats!

my situation is kinda similar to yours. LMP was july 27th, no spotting, no "serious" symptoms (a little nausea, craving foods i never really used to eat, minor things like that) and AF was due since Sept 2nd and up to yesterday i got a BFN on the HPT

was really disappointed but when i read ur post i guess i shouldn't get discouraged just yet

congrats again!

Hello. My last period on July 19, 2012. It lasted four days as usual. Since then I haven;t had one. About two weeks before my period in August the condom broke. Then my August period never came and now it's September and it still hasn't came. I have took six pregnancy tests and all of them have came out negative. My nipples are so sore. I sleep more and eat more. I wake up in the middle of the night to go pee, this has happened for a week now. There are some nights I have trouble falling asleep. Some nights I can fall asleep once my head hits the pillow. I use to just fall asleep. I've been having cramping in my left side occasionally, more than on my right side. Also, I've had some pain in my lower abdomen. I don't poop like I use to. It use to be everyday now it's like every four days if at all. I've been extremely moody and don't know why. Also, there have been a few times that while eating I throw up my food. It doesn't happen everyday. It started happening about two weeks ago, and has only happened three times since. I haven't seen my doctor yet. I'm going to wait an other month and see what happens. I'm not too worried about it. Even though we aren't married yet, we both are financially and mentally ready for a baby. Just wondering if this is normal before a period that has been missed for about two months or are these symptoms normal during pregnancy?

I look forward to seeing what you guys have to say

I'm so glad to find others going through the same thing as myself. I've been trying to get pregnant for several years. After going through failed attempts with an infertility specialist, I got pregnant naturally a year later at the age of 42. Unfortunately I miscarried at 8 weeks. I was devastated. That was in January 2012. My doctor recommended a D&C. After the procedure I bled moderately for 4-5 days. Then it took 8 more weeks for my HCG levels to decrease and to finally get a period. I started trying to get pregnant again with the assistance of an ovulation monitor. I was having regular 28 day cycles, but this month I am 9 days late. I don't have any pregnancy symptoms, like I did previously, and I finally broke down and took a HPT this morning. It was negative, and I felt the extreme disappointment that I was trying to avoid. I have had some dizzy spells, and despite the negative test, I'm still hopeful. Do you think there's a chance?

Last April, my menstruation was really heavy for 3 weeks, so I had to take birth control pills to stop it. It did stop. After taking the pills, I had menstruation again. That was last may 19. It has been four months and I haven't seen Aunt Flo yet. My dh and I are both 35. Been trying for a year now. I am still hopeful though despite negative hpt. I took one this morning and its negative. My doctor referred me to an ob gyne however, here in Calgary where waiting to be scheduled for an appointment seems like forever, I'm really getting depressed. I hope there's a private obgyne here. this is the downside of having free medical checkups. anyway, i don't have any signs except for missed period, bloated stomach, lower back pain. I read online that parsley, ginger and unripe papaya can bring back your menstruation. I would like to try it but I'm thinking I might be pregnant. I am wishing to have menstruation to start all over again...

My husband and I have been ttc for 5 months now. This last cycle, I used an over the counter ovulation kit. The test showed a positive ovulation on 8/8/12. We tried on the 6th, 8th, and 9th (plus a few days before and after). On the 11th, I had some very light spotting that lasted a few days. It was light brown, and very light. Mostly there just when I wiped plus a few spots on my underwear. The spotting stopped after a few days. I usually have very regular periods, but today I am 7 days late. I have taken 3 pregnancy tests, all of which were negative. I have no symptoms that suggest I am about to start, and the only "pregnancy" symptom I am having is maybe a sensitive stomach (no vomiting, just general nausea on and off). Has this happened to anyone else? Could I be pregnant and be getting negative results this late? Help please! Thanks!

Ok. Before I give my story I kno im new but ive been very apprehensive about posting bc last yr when I had my m/c I was attackd on a forum like this so plz if you dont have anything nice to say dont say anythin at all.

anyways. I had my last "period" 8/20. Due for nxt cycle 9/17. On 9/14 I had som light pink spotting that never even made it to a pL...jus when I wipe. This went on for three days...light pink/brwnish &only when I wipe. The day I was suppose to start (9/17) I began spotting late that night around 10/11pm so I put on a pad think it was af. Woke up nxt a.m. to a pad with almost nothing on it. Still wore a pad just in case. Spotted that day til about 5/6pm. Enough for a pad but didnt need to change. Idk if that would be heavy spotting or extremely light flow. Just needed a pantyliner for wed.esday. Boobs are sore. Tired. Hungry. Headaches.nausea but no vomitting. Bloated. Bumps on nipples. &slight cramps before spotting startd. 3/4hpts all neg&tive. Took last one yesterday a.m.

Advice??? Insight??? Answers???? Plz help. Been ttc since January

Hi all,
Never thought I would be joining an expectant mothers' forum...but here I am.

I am 32 years old, married, mother of 3, and had a tubal ligation five years ago with our last child. We don't use protection because of the tubal ligation. Can't tell you when we last had sex because I haven't been keeping track for the same reason! Now I am four days late on my period, but SIX negative hpt's!!! I am growing in my waistline but I haven't gained any weight. I have felt pregnant for three weeks now but have no hpt to prove it.

Anyone else out there have similar circumstances? Tubal and then possible pregnancy?

Would love to hear that I am not going crazy

My husband and I have been ttc for 5 months and this last month has been quite exciting but very stressful. My period has ALWAYS been exactly the day it was supposed to be i have a 26 day cycle and I was supposed to get my period yesterday but did not. Today is winding down to an end and I still have not gotten it. 7 days ago after we had intercourse i had the faintest pink on the toilet paper and a little in the toilet. Not red...pink. I looked up on the internet and it said that 7 days before ur period that would have been implantation bleeding so I was so excited. I had leg cramps so bad that night as well I could not fall asleep till 2 in the morning and stomach aches. For the past week I have had naseau all through the day and night as soon as a wake up all the way until i fall asleep but no vomiting.I have been very crabby and somewhat emotional. My nipples are so tender I can not even wash myself in the shower much less my husband rub past me in the kitchen. I have been sleeping constantly during the day and just this morning my chocolate lab woke me up licking my face and hands she normally does not come up by my face she either stays by my feet or on the floor. I took a preg test 5 days ago and new it would be negative because it was way to early but decided to do anyway and it was negative. I took another one this morning and it was negative and again at 2:30 it was negative. The woman at the clinic told me to come back next tuesday if I havent gotten my period.....I CANT wait that long I just wish the darn little stick would say positive and stop fooling me around!! I feel pregnant and just have a sense that god has granted my prayer but I have been disappointed so much I dont want my hopes up and I hope this isnt some cruel joke where for "some" reason the doctors tell me o maybe u were sick and ur period came late.

The best thing is to go to the doctor and take a blood test . I have two children and always conceived right before my period at home test never showed until the next month every woman is different and produces different levels . I am actually going to doctor today because my period is late my husband and I have been trying for over 2 years and I may be dissappointed but I have to find out
