Be patient, see GYN.: You probably had an anovulatory cycle and should expect your period to come back with a vengeance soon (meaning heavier than usual vaginal bleeding and cramps). If in any doubt please see your gynecologist for a thorough evaluation and a blood HCG test. Take Folic Acid 1-5 mg daily and good luck! ...Read more

Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

My breasts are larger than usual. I have uti. I missed my period but every pregnancy test comes out negative, I feel pregnant. Please help me.

My breasts are larger than usual. I have uti. I missed my period but every pregnancy test comes out negative, I feel pregnant. Please help me.

Breast symptoms: First, I would recommend to redo a home preg test. Two negative tests are very confirming that you are not pregnant. Assuming you are not pregnant, missed cycle may cause breast tenderness due to hormonal alterations. Are you on any birth control? Additionally, symptoms could be all part of pms. If you have a uti, that should be unrelated to this concern. Easiest is to redo the test, for now. ...Read more

I had unprotected sex and took plan b 2 days later I missed my period but my pregnancy test came back negative. Am I pregnant?

Test quality: For a regular home pregnancy test to turn positive, the newly implanted embryo must create enough of the hormone that shows up in the urine. That may take longer to be at high enough levels to trigger the test. A first morning urine is a little more concentrated and more likely to show positive early. ...Read more

Most likely ok: As long as you haven't missed any pills, and your pregnancy test is negative, I wouldn't worry. Keep taking your pills as scheduled. Some women will skip, don't have menses or have very light scant flow on the newer lo dose pills. If you get any symptoms of pregnancy though, do another pregnancy test or check in with your doctor and get a blood pregnancy test. ...Read more

I feel pregnant and have many of the pregnancy symptoms. I've missed my period but my home pregnancy test was negative? Is that possible?

Missed period: Early in pregnancy, it's possible to get a false negative pregnancy test. This happens if the urine has been diluted by drinking a lot of fluids. Using the first urine of the morning prevents these false negatives. But more likely, the pregnancy symptoms are due to a skipped ovulation and hormonal fluctuations from that. ...Read more

Hormonal imbalance: Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. Consult this site for more information on this topic.

Irregular periods: Irregular periods are one of the most common problems obgyns treat. If this is one time problem it usually resolves on its own. If this is a recurring problem you should be evaluated. Infections & hormonal changes can cause spotting. If there is a concern for pregnancy then do a home pregnancy test. There are many options available to help regulate the menstrual cycle. Schedule a visit. ...Read more

Irregular cycles: Cycles can commonly be irregular, skip. Illnesses, stress, strenous exercise, obesity have all been shown to cause cycle irregularity. If you don't' start, I would repeat a pregnancy test in a week or so. Tubals are not 100% effective in preventing pregnancy. ...Read more

See below: If you did the test correctly and it was negative 4-5 days after a missed period, that would rule out pregnancy. Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor.

Need to...: Stop freaking out. Pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications. A correctly done urine test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon. ...Read more

Absent menses: Missing a period can occur naturally if no ovulation occurs that month. If your time between periods exceeds 45 days and you have a negative pregnancy test at that time, a MD can offer a progesterone pill for 10 days to initiate bleeding once you make an appointment. The GYN MD will also check for other medical causes for missing a period like thyroid disorders. ...Read more

First month without birth control (beyaz), and I have missed my period completely. Is this common? Pregnancy test was negative.

First month without birth control (beyaz), and I have missed my period completely. Is this common? Pregnancy test was negative.

Not rare: The first period after stopping birth control pills can be a bit delayed. Were your periods regular or irregular before starting the pills? If they were irregular before, they may well be irregular now. Chart them. If you don't want to be pregnant, choose another method of birth control if you have sex. If you do want to be pregnant, be sure you're taking a prenatal vitamin with folate (folic acid). ...Read more

Cycle changes: May be due to multiple factors: hormonal variations, stress, tension, anxiety, illness or metabolic disorders. I suggest keeping a menstrual diary and tracking your monthly cycles. Additionally, BC pills will protect you and help regulate your cycle. If you miss one once, do a home pregnancy test. ...Read more
