I am a 23 year old female who has recently undergone abdominal surgery in September. The surgery brought on a period on September 4th and I menstrated again October 5th and November 6th. While my period usually comes within a few days of itself, I have been long known to be irregular. Most frequently, I was 10 days late in August.
It is now December 13th and I was expecting a period around the 7th or 8th. I have taken two EPT tests (One on the morning of the 9th and one the 13th) and both have come up negative but still no period.
My very fearful alarm comes from the fact that due to my surgery, I am not able to carry a baby until my incision scar is more fully healed. If I were to be pregnant, it would have to be terminated and I am very scared that the EPTs are not picking up that I am pregnant and I am wasting valuable time.
I am psyching myself out very badly. I have been under large amounts of stress the past few months due to my surgery and current diagnosis of Chron's Disease but still had periods in a timely fashion the months before.
I usually break out before my period and my skin is rather clear at the moment. I also usally expierince yeast infection like sypomtoms in my lady parts and am not itchy at all.
Should I keep testing at home? Perhaps with another brand? I've heard stories of women testing for weeks and getting negatives and stil being preggo, I do not have health insurence, but my S/O and I would be able to get a blood test if need be. I just need to know for sure so I can take timely steps of action!
Yeah I agree. I would go in for blood work. When I was pregnant with my daughter I went to an urgent care and told them I was going on vacation the next day and I NEEDED to know for sure if I was pregnant and they tested my blood and got my results in about 30 min. FYI...i was not going on vacation...just anxious...haha
Your doc can tell you for certain... But by the time a baby is large enough to start putting pressure on your abdomen by increasing the size of your uterus your incision will have had months to heal. Don't start to stress about until someone with "makes decisions" (MD) behind their name tells you to. For now... Stay calm and test with a good HPT like answer or FRER. GL and I hope you get the outcome you want.
