Period is now 5days late and still getting a negative pregnancy test. What's going on?

Hormonal imbalance: You may repeat the test in 3-4 days, if you do not get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. 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. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

Possibly: Have you always been regular? What kind of pregnancy test did you have done? Was it an over the counter home pregnancy test? Some can provide false negative results. I would recommend repeating it. If it is still negative then I would just wait a little longer and see if your period resumes. If that does not happen then it is time for you to have your doctor order a serum (blood) pregnancy test. ...Read more

I had a period from October 5-9 then spotting from the 21-27th negative pregnancy test after both period and spotting. Could I still be pregnant?

Maybe...: Having a normal regular period means one is not pregnant at that time. Having sex after that period means one could become pregnant on the current month. If the next period comes and is a normal regular one, it means one is not pregnant, again. If worried, one can do a urine pregnancy test the week after missing a period, or 3 weeks after having sex. ...Read more
