Can any wise MNers shed any light? Had regular AF since coming off pill 4 months ago. Currently 5 days late, bad tummy, unusually tired, today feeling really nauseous and certain foods smell odd. But have taken 3 tests and all are BFNs. What's happening to me?!

It could be that you haven't produced enough hcg for a pregnancy test to pick it up, yet. Or it could be that AF is just being late and stubborn. I remember once my cycle lasted 40 days even though my normal cycle is around 28.

I would buy several different brands of pregnancy tests and make sure to test in the morning -- you can ask the pharmacist which one is best for detecting low levels of hcg -- and schedule a doctor's appointment in the meantime for blood work. If AF does come, you can always cancel the appointment.
