Missed period after an always regular cycle, negative preg test, pain on right side of abdomen, diarrhea. What could it be?

Missed period after an always regular cycle, negative preg test, pain on right side of abdomen,  diarrhea. What could it be?

Most likely, normal: My own take on this is that, particularly with heavy menses and/or irregular cycles , there is notable amount of retrograde menstrual flow (back flow of menstrual effluent) through the fallopian tubes into the abdominal cavity. This could serve to irritate the peritoneal lining (eliciting pain, bloating, etc..) as well as nearby bowel; leading to some of the possible GI symptoms described. ...Read more

Tested in February?: Sometimes, it can be hard to tell if a woman is pregnant because some of the symptoms seen in early pregnancy can also happen in non-pregnant women. A urine pregnancy test gives a reliable result if done correctly. One can test about 3 weeks after sex (when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. An ob-gyn doctor can evaluate any persistent or worrisome symptoms. ...Read more

Vague symptoms: Menstrual irregularities like a missed period can occur with an infection or a non-infectious inflammatory process or even psychological trauma. Anything that alters hormonal balances can do this. You might want to use another home pregnancy test on a first am voided urine specimen in a week and make sure, otherwise wait and see what happens next month. ...Read more
