TTC - 2 months late but still negative test

I have been TTC for about 5 months and periods have always been regular; however I took norethisterone to prevent my period in June and after that my cycle increased in length by about 2/3 days each cycle. My last period was 23 August and although I had some very light bloody discharge around 28 Sept I haven't had a proper period since.

I did 3 pregnancy tests (2 clear blue digital and 1 first response) 2 weeks after the missed period and 1 first response test last week however all have come back negative. I have been experiencing some symptoms (light cramping / feels like butterflies, feeling sick, constipation and off some foods however no tender breasts etc.)

Feeling very anxious as not sure whether it is possible to conceive at the moment or whether I am actually pregnant; have spoken with my GP on the phone who said no point booking an appointment as all they would look to do is eliminate pregnancy, which she said I have already done myself using the home test so should wait until my period comes but I have no idea when that could be... any help / advice greatly appreciated!

Hi, I've no advice but didn't want to read and run.

I'm similar, currently on cycle day 60-odd, no bfp when I checked a couple of weeks ago, no AF in sight either. No real symptoms, except for a slightly painful boob. Last night I started getting a pain in my right ovary so now I'm wondering if you can ovulate if you miss a period. That's the next thing on my list to google today.

I was very regular after AF came back after I had the implant removed, but it all decided to go haywire at Christmas and has been odd since. I'm on cycle 21 by now probably (- I gave up tracking anything other than AF a while ago).

No advice, just some sympathy flowers being irregular is just awful. People think the 2ww is bad lol, indefinite weeks wait is just bullshit.

Thank you so much for your message, it's nice to know not alone. Such a frustrating time - the indefinite wait is hard. Will be joining you on researching whether can still ovulate when a period missed, fingers crossed! Best of luck with ttc xx

good luck to you too, hopefully you'll get a late BFP smile

After two months, I'm surprised they won't give you a blood test to rule out pregnancy. It's very uncommon, but not everyone shows pregnant on a home pregnancy test. Could you push them a bit harder for a blood test?

I think I'd just go back to ask further help with regulating your cycles. This isn't great when ttc.
