Just hoping for some anecdotal advice/shared experiences really. In a nutshell DH and I plan to start TTC in 2017, came off the Micronor pill (mentioning because I read it only stops ovulation in half of women and I continued to have nice regular 28 day cycles on it) in September and continued to have mostly regular cycles, including last months which was 27 days.
I'm not charting ovulation so know I could have ov'd late, but surely 11 - 12 days after expected AF date I should have something by now?? And also does anyone know how late I need to be to get some medical advice? I read being up to 10 days late is normal so just accepted that my cycle was late, but I'm now worried as I've passed what is considered "normal".
I also had a fair bit of cramping around my expected AF date and have more pronounced nipple bumps. Every test I've done so far has been negative, but I've only been using cheap stick tests (not strip ones) and they aren't terribly sensitive.
Sorry for the long post! Has anyone got their period this late with no underlying problems, or got a very late BFP?
You could ring up your GP Monday if you're worried (which it sounds like). It is likely that it WOULD show up on a test, but crazier things have happened! Even a not very sensitive test will generally pick up pregnancy around the time of AF. PMT symptoms are pretty much the same as pregnancy symptoms.
Many women have an anovulatory cycle once in awhile, which would generally delay your period. It might be as simple as that?
