My period is late and I have pregnancy symptoms, but the test says I’m not pregnant. What should I do now?

I think I may be pregnant and I took a home test but it said negative. I have all the symptoms, I'm extremly tired and most of all my cycle is 11 days late. What should I do next? Just let it go or take another test, or see my doctor.

  • I would go to your doctor and get a blood test done, that's the best way to know for sure if you are pregnant. One time my period was 2 weeks late and normally I'm never late! Sadly, I wasn't preggers! But oh well soon I hope! But really I would get the blood test done cause I know some women can not show a positve pee test for a long time! Good luck!

  • I would wait a couple of days, take another test. If it comes back negative, then call your doctor. If you do end up being positive... CONGRATS!!!

  • You can go to the dr. to see if you are or not. I just went through this. I ovulated really late so my period got pushed really far back. I ended up skipping a period.
    Or....you might be pregnant. Let us know.

  • Im also late and had a negative test. I'm not sure if its due to the fact that I stopped taking my birth control a week after I had sex or if I am in fact pregnant and it's just too early to see. I do find it weird that I had my period then two weeks later had it again...few days after sex but before I stopped taking the birth control. It's been 35 days since I had sex and still no period...weird. Guess all we can do is worry till we test again or go to the docs.

  • It's nice to know that there are others in the same situation! I'm 3 weeks late, my last period was July 23 and I should have had one around August 25. It never came. So I've tested a few times only to have each one come out negative, the last test I took was last night and think I managed to use a defective one because NOTHING showed up, not even the control line! But I found a website, I can't remember what it is, but it basically tells you when a good time to take an HPT is. Just google pregnancy test calculator and I'm sure any of those will help. From what I saw, it looks like I need to retest on the day I should be getting my period for this month, that's if AF is still absent. So if you know when you're supposed to get your next period, wait(if you can!) to that first day of your next projected period. You should have enough HCG by then for any HPT to pick it up.

  • With my first son (who is 3 now) I tested at home and the dr's office on the day I was late and got a negative. The Dr. even told me I wasn't pregnant. I waited a week and tested again and Bam! There it was a BFP. He is living proof that you can have false negatives. :) I tested positive with my second son (16months) on the morning that I was 1 day late. BFP right away. Within 10 seconds! Every pregnancy is different. Right now, I am waiting again because I haven't been keeping track of my periods due to holiday stuff but I suspect I am a few days late. I got a negative yesterday on a dollar store test. It was the first I have ever used a dollar store test. So I am trying to wait patiently to see what God has in store for me. We shall see. I will give it a few days and I actually have a regular scheduled Ob/Gyn appointment on Thursday so I will tell them and see what they say. Good luck to those who are TTC. Best Wishes!
