I am 42, no kids, no contraception used for last 12 years, given up on the idea that it will ever happen... (I had a miscarriage when I was 16 at about 8 weeks, and one at about 6 weeks when I was in my late 20's)

Periods reasonably regular, never go longer than 28 days, usual average is 26 days. It is now 38 days since last period, and we have had sex during that time.

I feel sick, have been sick a few times, but put it down to the anti-biotics I have taken (although they have never made me sick before), got a metallicky taste in my mouth, coffee which I usually love tastes weird and makes me feel sick too, nipples have been ultra sensitive for last couple of days now, and (sorry for the tmi) have had discharge which has been gluey, mostly clear, but also a bit pinky a couple of days ago, which has now stopped.. got almost permanent acid indigestion too.. feel knackered.. have also put a couple of pounds on in weight, when I have not really been eating all that much and should by rights have lost weight..

I have done a cheapo pregnancy test and it was negative.....

Antibiotics can knock a cycle off...I missed two periods after a very stressful time at work and having an infection.doc said it was down to that and just did a hormone check. Right enough af arrived the next month. If you're certain id def try another test and DC for you!
