Period Late 16 Days

Need advice - Started pink/brown spotting during my usual period time so thought I was starting soon, but nothing came. Negative tests including this morning when I'm estimated 16 days late. Went to the doctor 7 days after period was late but it came back negative, if I started bleeding earlier it was probably too early. Tried to talk to the doctor about my levels but she did the quantiative test and was busy last week.

I came off the pill 3 months ago but have been normal ever since, even before I was on the pill. I had heavy symptoms last week breast tenderness, nausea, hot flashes, bloating, light cramps, fatigue, achiness. This week, I still have bloating, cramping and headaches, but they come and go.

While I was regular on my period, I never experienced cramps or PMS symptoms and I started in my late teens. Should I go back to the doctor and when?

  • It could be stress, but I would probably follow up with the doctor if your period doesn't start in another week or so.
