Period is 5 days late with no sign of it!

My menstrual cycle goes from 28 days to 31 days every other month. I always get a lot of cramping because I have PCOS and the surge of hormones makes me miserable. I am 2 days late with no cramping or any of my normal signs of my period.I usually have a lot of cramping and ovary pain the day before, I took a test yesterday and it was negative.
Ive had lots of whitish discharge and Ive been constipated and tired.
Anyone with similar experience?




9/11/2013 Heres another update,still no sign of my period or any of my usual heavy ovary pain and cramps. Took another test this am and it was negative.



5 days late and called DR. Nurse said to wait until I got a positive test or had severe pain or if another full week passes and I do not start. Frustrated!

  • Give it another couple of days and test again. Call your doctor if your cycle is still MIA and you get another negative.

  • There are lots of reasons a period can be a few days late. Test again at the end of the week, using the first urine of the morning.

  • all the more reason to test again or call your OB. The chances of it being an ectopic pregnancy is increased with a tubal.

  • Took another test it was negative. Ive been drilled with the signs and symptoms of ectopic pregnancys because they thought my daughter was a tubal pregnancy!

    Im definately on the alert for any unusual symptoms. If I dont start by Monday Im calling my doctor.
