My cervix is high and hard. My period was due 3 weeks ago. Negative pregnancy test. What does this mean?

My cervix is high and hard. My period was due 3 weeks ago. Negative pregnancy test. What does this mean?

Late for period: I'm not sure what the reference to your cervix implies, as checking one's cervix isn't typically a sign of anything. It does however sound like you are having irregular period, given that you are 3 weeks late. Irregular periods can be due to hormones, thyroid, weight issues (thin/heavy). If continues, consider seeing a gynecologist. Best luck.

May re do the test: You may repeat the test in 4-5 days, use first morning urine and follow the instructions 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.

Retest 1 week: If you are only 3 days late, I would retest in a week if you haven't started your period yet. The spotting could have been from ovulation but can't know for sure. If no period and still a negative test in another week, see doctor to discuss further evaluation.

Likely normal: variation. There are variations in the menstrual flow, what you described seems to fit in that. You may wish to take oral iron supplements to avoid becoming anemic from the extra blood loss. If the irregularity lasts more than two periods, it would be prudent to see your doctor. If you could get pregnant, please take pre-natal vitamins.

Not necessarily: Did you miss your period? If you are 4-5 days past the due date for your period, you should do the home pregnancy test using first morning urine and following the directions for the test carefully. You may wish to see your doctor for a more sensitive blood test, as soon as one day after a missed period.

What exactly does it mean when you missed your period and have had a negative pregnancy test.?

Menstrual cycles: It is common for some women to skip a period or have irregular cycles. It is also more likely to happen if you are very athletic, gain or lose weight rapidly, using birth control pills, or have an eating disorder. I would track your cycles to see if your cycles are regular. If they are not and you are trying to get pregnant you may need to see your doctor if you notice that it remains irregular.
