My last menstrual was April 9th, i have taken 1 home pregnancy test and i have been to the doctor 2 times and all the those tests was negative. Today is the 2 of June and i still didn't get my period for the month of May. is there a mom on here that was pregnant but it never showed on the stick? i'm thinking that is my situation.

  • When you went to the doctor did they do blood work and an ultra sound? Generally when you don't get your period they will first confirm pregnancy using urine. If it's still not back they will generally do blood and then ultrasound to check. Furthermore it would also depend on your medical history. For example PCOS, whether you got off any birth control recently and how recently. etc. There are a hundred different reasons why you might not be getting your period, pregnancy is simply one of the possible reasons.

  • How old are you? Could it be menopause? Are you on Depo or some other BC known to cause no periods?

  • Perhaps you simply didn't ovulate this cycle? It happens to nearly all women at least once during their reproductive years.

  • Stress does effect your period. And other medical problems. Low body weight and being over weight effects your period.

  • Wait another two weeks & then go to your OBGYN for blood work. If you are not pregnant then they can give you a prescription for a medication that will start your period back up.

  • Taking antibiotics, losing or gaining a significant amount of weight, and starting or stopping a vigorous exercise program can affect your periods. Stressing about whether or not you have conceived can affect your periods.

  • If you think you are and it has not shown up on urine or blood tests then request an ultrasound be done. You may have to insist and your insurance may not cover it, but you should see something. Even if you aren't pregnant you may discover something else.
