I've been sexually active all month not sure when I ovulate I was due on today and had nothing.. I took two clear blue digital tests both negative but I feel they may be wrong coz I'm eating more and put on 3 pounds in two weeks. I get a sicky feeling and even when I eat I want more. I'm not sure if I have other symptoms part from the odd occasion stomach cramps that go away.. I've been stressing a bit just want to know your experiences.

yes, it's quite possible to get a false negative if you test too early. Wait a few more days and try again.

Luc1820 Tue 12-Aug-14 13:07:05

How many days do you recommend waiting.

HazleNutt Wed 13-Aug-14 14:26:29

hard to say, depends on the sensitivity of the test as well.

Luc1820 Wed 13-Aug-14 23:10:06

Luc1820 Wed 13-Aug-14 23:12:03

What do you mean by sensitive as well as I'm new to the whole conceiving and want to get it right

xBlueberry88x Thu 14-Aug-14 09:06:50

Some pregnancy tests can pick up the hormones better and earlier that others.

A frer is a first response you can get them in super drug etc

Ok thanks for ur help. I still haven't had my period and two days Late.

Luc1820 Sat 16-Aug-14 17:27:53

I took another two cheap tests today both negative nd it's now been Five days and no period. Should I be worried.

Go to the docs darling smile always best doing it properly to be sure. If you are not using protection and are 5 days late, I would assume pregnancy too, so best be sure and head over to docs and rest your mind xx

I am also late by 9 days! Did a test 2 and 4 days late both neg. driving me crazy! :/

Sometimes your cycle can just change for no real reason. Especially if you are stressed about something.

If you are eating more, then it isn't any surprise that you have gained weight ;)

If you are concerned, maybe see your GP? Did you come off any hormone based contraception recently? It took nearly a year for my periods to stabilise when I came off the pill.

NewlymrsB Mon 18-Aug-14 16:06:33

Any update?

Luc1820 Mon 18-Aug-14 20:50:16

No I've never been on any meds or birth control. Just condoms which I obviously stopped using.

Luc1820 Mon 18-Aug-14 20:51:56

I haven't been to doc's. Yet I'm just waiting it out. Anyone one had experiences when they thought they were pregnant and dint find out for ages

Luc1820 Mon 18-Aug-14 21:14:31

Since my last weigh in I have gained another 3pounds.

NewlymrsB Tue 19-Aug-14 08:27:47

The witch showed for me today 11 days late!

Luc1820 Tue 19-Aug-14 22:32:32

Have u been docs yet.

Luc1820 Mon 25-Aug-14 00:30:32

I'm on day 13 and still no.sign of anything.

curiousgeorgie Mon 25-Aug-14 00:33:00

You should see a doctor. Although tests can be wrong, it's quite unusual to be this late and not get even a hint of a line. Are you quite stressed out?

BertieBotts Mon 25-Aug-14 00:43:07

You need to see the doctor if you are that late with negative pregnancy tests just so they can find out why.

Have you recently stopped hormonal contraception or might there be another reason why your cycle might be interrupted?

Luc1820 Mon 25-Aug-14 17:45:54

I wouldn't say stressed but I do panic a bit if things go wrong. And work can b a downer at times. Other than that I lead a happy life lol

Luc1820 Mon 25-Aug-14 17:48:39

I haven't used any birth control or hormonal tablets. Im usually a few days late but never this many. My books heart when they are squeezed (tmi) but part from that nothing.
