Not sure: You might want to try a different test if you are not sure. The other option would we to see your MD and check a blood test. It may just be that you had a delay in ovulation, and that you period may come a little later than usual. If you haven't started in a week and you test is negative, you may want to check with your MD.

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

Yes: Emergency contraceptive pills like Plan B can change the timing of one's period, and sometimes even the timing of the next period. One can repeat the urine pregnancy test if no period comes in another week.

See your doctor: This problem mandates a real-time (face-to-face) meeting with a doctor. A history has to be taken along with a examination as well as labs and other tests. Only after all this will your doctor be in a position to tell you what's wrong and what needs to be done to help you.

It : It is possible. Sometimes a woman who is pregnant can have a negative pregnancy test if the HCG level is too low to trigger a positive. In that situation, it is recommended that the woman repeat the test in 7 days or less.

My period is late 2 months pregnancy test said negative could I still be pregnant?

My period is late 2 months pregnancy test said negative could I still be pregnant?

Highly unlikely: If correctly performed a pregnancy test coming back negative, when there is actually a pregnancy, is highly unlikely. Anything is possible in medicine, though - so you could back up the test with a blood test and/or a transvaginal ultrasound, which 8 weeks into a pregnancy should demonstrate a pregnancy in the uterus.

Skipped periods: There are a lot of reasons for a skipped period including stress. If the pregnancy test is negative, the best thing to do is wait to see if it comes back normally next month. If it doesn't, it's time to have an evaluation. Other causes of skipped periods include eating disorders, pcos, excess exercise, medications, thyroid disorders and some others.

Pregnancy Test: A home urine pregnancy test should be accurate any time after you miss your period. If its negative after your missed period, you are unlikely to be pregnant. The exception would be an abnormal pregnancy such as an ectopic pregnancy. These can sometimes produce a hormone level below the threshold that turns a urine pregnancy test positive. This is not common. Best wishes!

Should I be worried? My period is late and it has never been late. I took a pregnancy test but it is negative. Is there something wrong

Should I be worried? My period  is late and it has  never been late. I took  a pregnancy test but it is negative. Is there something wrong

How late?: There is some normal variation in cycle length and this could be all that is going on or your period could be late due to stress, exercise, diet changes, sleep changes, weight, medications, or diseases like thyroid disease, PCOS, insulin resistance/diabetes, or adrenal or pituitary problems. A full history, exam, and appropriate testing are necessary in order to know for sure. Hope this helps.

Unlikely: Most women will occasional have "anovulatory" period occasionally snd will be late. How late are we talking? If one two days OK to wait another day or two and see if it comes. If not it could have been to soon to check for pregnancy and would repeat test. If we are talking about a longer time, it should be evaluated further. Good luck, but you on not need it and will be fine.

Abnormal cycle: Modern urine pregnancy tests sold in drugstores are very accurate when used properly. Most report accuracy as early as the first day after your first missed period. Many things such as weight changes, excessive exercise and stress can affect your cycle. Your gynecologist should be able to evaluate you for conditions that need treatment.

Time and technique: If you did the test correctly and it was negative at 14 days after a missed period, you are not pregnant. To be sure you may repeat the test, use first morning urine, or see your doctor for a blood test.
