my period is 11 days late but my tests are neg :(


Hi girls,

Firstly I'd just like to say thank you for letting people like myself read all your comments and advice on this forum - I (like many others I'm sure) have been "visiting" this site for a few months now and it always reassures me to hear that there are many other people in the same boat as myself and so many of my little queries and concerns have been answered on here so thanks a million for that.

I was just wondering if any of you could shed any light on my latest little episode... My husband and myself have been TTC since I came off my pill at the end of August last year. We are in no big panic for anything to happen as we both knid of know its probably going to take a while as I have been on the pill for the past 12 years and it will take a wee while for my cycle to get normal etc .... So I came off the pill in August my next period came September 26th, October 28th and my last period was November 29th. My period still hasn't arrived yet and since boxing day I have had all the usual PMS signs such as tender breasts, emotional, abdominal pains etc .. I feel like many other girls i'm noticing symptoms more at the moment as falling pregnant is obviously on my mind a lot - I feel like I need to pee all the time, increased discharge (sometimes I'm convinved my period is here as my pants are so wet but no blood), constipated blah blah blah!!! BUT I have tested twice now using HPT's (Clear blue) and both are negative so I can't be pregnant can I? I do have an appointemnt with my Doctor but its not til next Wed so I'm going to get a blood test and have a wee chat. My mum has said that she thinks the HPT's can take longer with different people to pick up the hormones and another friend had to go to the Doctor 3 times for tests before they picked up that she was pregnant.

I really dont mind that much if they come as at least then I would know whats happening ... Before going on the pill my periods were always regular and I have never experienced a period coming as late as this but at the same time I have only been off the pill for a few months now so do you think my body could still be trying to sort itself out? I know this is a hard question for you guys to answer as every individual is different and I'm not writing this in the hope you tell me I might be pregnant but i was just wondering if anybody might have some experiences or views that might help me.

Thanks for reading this girls! All the very best to you all x

If you're regular, and AF's late, then there is a chance, especially if you know when you O'ed. It doesn't sound like you have been charting or using OPKs so you may not know that. And yes, it can take awhile for your body to sort itself out after coming off BCP.

Your Mom is right, some women don't pass a lot of the hormone tested for into their urine, so HPTs can take awhile for some women. A blood test is always a better method for more accurate results.

Hope that helps! Welcome to B&B!

Thanks Dakini and Faith may! maybe there is a tiny wee bit of hope - sure you never know! I did track my ovulation in November using the tests and I ovulated on the 15th and because my periods were coming quite regularly around the same date I just guessed for December and thought it would be around this date again so made sure we were active that week (evry second day roughly). I dont want to keep things fun and not be analysing everything too much - if its meant to be then its meant to be! Thanks for your help x

You sound EXACTLY like me at the moment!! Except I'm not quite as late as you - only between 3 - 5 days late, but all BFN's. I'll also be going to the GP next week if AF doesn't show up!!

Good luck - hope it's a BFP for us both!!

You girls are all so nice aawwww! Yeah autumn sky i was reading your posts and we do sound like we're in the same boat here .... its so hard because you feel like you're all over the place when you're unsure! One minute I'm thinking "no dont be silly those tests can pick up on the tiniest amont of hormones" then i think "well maybe there is a chance because its so unlike me to be so late so something must be going on in there!" you look everything up on the internet like a psycho and as for checking your pants for blood I feel like I'm never off the loo having a look haha ... well its best to try and not get too obsessive about the whole thing and as my partner always says "whats for you wont go past you" so I just try and think about that x PS I meant to say in my last post I DO want to keep things fun and not I DONT want to - Think my mind is all over the place right now I keep making mistakes - i even threw my lovely new xmas pj's my husband got me in the bin last night toatlly by mistake and he found them in there wondering what was wrong with them! I actually meant to put them in the washing basket ....
