Highly unlikely: Many things can cause a delayed/late menstrual period. With 5 negative tests it is highly unlikely that you are pregnant. It is time to start looking into some of the other possibilities such as medications, diseases such as thyroid disease, diabetes/ insulin resistance,polycystic ovarian syndrome, or pituitary tumors, exercise, stress,weight change,or changes in your schedule.

Menopause: I am surprised that a 47 yo female is asking this question without considering that they are entering menopause. If you really think you could be pregnant, even though bleeding is not a sign of pregnancy then a pregnancy test should be completed. Once you find out that the test is negative i would advise you getting to your family doctor to discuss how to manage menopause. ...Read more

Safe Sex: While an egg is only able to be fertilized during a brief time window in the cycle and ovulation occurs typically midcycle, it is difficult to predict timing of ovulation for any one cycle. 12/15 would be cycle day 10-- it is conceivable that ovulation is or is about to occur. This is assuming that 12/6-12/8 was a normal period which it may not have been. If you don't want preg--- use bc. ...Read more
