My period is 7 days late, but I am still getting a negitive pregnancy test........

Has anyone gone through this? I don't know what to think. I had a misscarrage in October 2010, could that have anything to do with this? I'm just really confused. My periods have been on time sinse the miscarriage........Please let me know! Thanks!



Can stress cause it to be late? I have some stress but not much more than usual.

  • It's possible that you are pregnant. But if you are concerned and especially since you had a miscarriage recently you should go to the doctor to find out what is going on.

  • a couple months ago my period was 3 weeks late! i was definitely thinking i was pregnant and i kept taking tests and they were all negative!! well i finally started my period and it was really weird bc my periods are always about 30 days apart and aare never late like that. i had gained about 10 or 15 pounds recently before that and i was a little stressed so im thinking that may be why... but i wasnt pregnant! if you dont start in a week or two and are still taking a neg test id go to the doctors

  • I have been 12 days late. I think you can be a max of about 20 days.

  • There are lots of things other than pregnacy that can alter you periods, if I were you I'd wait another week and if you still don't get it you should probably talk to a doctor
