My name is Cheri and I am in a bit of a predicament. I have always had a 28-day cycle, up until now. My period is a week late, and I have taken several pregnancy test, with all of them coming back negative.
Last month, I (for some reason) decided not to take the white inactive pills of my birth control, which set my period off a little. I went to speak with my pharmacist, and he told me that it should not have set it off as much as it did--that was this past Saturday.
So, my question is--could I still be pregnant, or could it be something else? After taking so many tests, could they be a "false negative?" Should I continue to worry? And, when should I consult my doctor?
Yes. I have taken five pregnancy test (all different brands, including First Response and ClearBlue) and they have all been negative. I sort of got my hopes up last night, because as the test was changing, I thought for a moment it would be positive, but the inevidable happened, and it was once again, negative.
Im not sure whats going on. I am now on day 11 of missed period, which again has never ever happened to me. I read online that if I was pregnant, I would know it by now....and I also read that my missed period could be because I did not ovulate this month. I did make an appt. for this coming Monday, so I will finally know whats going on. Of course...who knows what the doctor will do, other than a urine sample and a blood sample. Is there any other tests the doctor could do on me to help me ease my mind? Will my periods return back to normal if I am in fact not pregnant?
I am so sorry to hear that you had a chemical pregnancy! I have heard of these, but you are the first person I have talked to that has actually experienced it. When did you find out that you had had a chemical pregnancy? Did you bleed at all after having the chemical pregnancy, and how long ago did this happen? Thank you so much for your comments and feedback, An. I really do appreciate it. View Thread
