I'm late!

I am 2 months late and stressed out!  I had a tubal ligation 5 years ago but I thought i would take a pregnancy test to be sure. I took three that say I am not. SO why am I so late?  Stress? Not eating right?  Being ping pong house cleaning, kid raising lady?! I am so stressed out. We do not have insurance so I haven't  any idea where I can go to get medical answers about this.  Maybe the tests were wrong. Although the Wal-Mart brand is what I used the last two times I was pregnant, maybe I got a bad bath.

My tubes have been tided sence Aug. 2000 and let me tell you I have had many missed montly's and many times of running to the store late at night for a PG test.

I have only gotten pg once and it was a tube pg that happen in 2002 they went in and took some tube out and retied.

Dont panic it is not uncommon for a few times in your life to skip periods. Especially if you are in your 30's or 40's. You are probably not pregnant. Wait another week and take a early predictor test. If it is negative you are not preg. and probably just skipped this month.

Not having medical insurance is not good.

You need to go see someone.

ovarian cyst??   I had that one time, thought for sure I was pg because I could feel that 'bump' over your pubic bone and was way late.  It ruptured, (OW) and had my period 14 days later...

well it sounds like you are stressing.  so that could be it.  i would just relax and not think about it so much.  the other thing is your hormones could be out of whack, which causes a period not to show up.

If you are two months late, and took several pregnancy tests that were negative, you are probably not pregnant.  When I was in my 20's and in college I got really stressed I would skip months at a time.  Stress, especially around the holidays, anything that can shift hormones can cause you to skip a fewo periods.  Don't stress.  You can also find a local planned parenthood if want a more accurate test to make you feel better.  They are fairly inexpensive.
