What should we do?... :(
An_248957 posted:
My husband and I are very confused. I have not had a period since September... Last month, in October, I had slight bleeding for two days. We have been trying to concieve since September, but every test that I have taken has come up negative. I know I have taken a good 10 tests. I seem to be having all the pregnancy symptoms but the tests continue to show negative. We are begining to get very discouraged because we can not understand why I would have the symptoms and continue to show as negative. What should we do, besides go to the doctor?

Amenorrhea is the medical term for absence of periods. Although there are times when a women will not menstruate, during pregnancy or menopause for example, any other skipped periods may be a symptom of a medical problem.

If you get a negative result, you are likely not pregnant. However, you may still be pregnant if:
  • The test is past its expiration date.
  • You took the test the wrong way.
  • You tested too soon.
  • Your urine is too diluted because you consumed large amounts of fluid right before the test.
  • You are taking certain medications, such as diuretics or antihistamines.
If you get a negative pregnancy test result, try retesting within about a week to double-check. Some home pregnancy tests suggest doing this regardless of your results.

Get blood work done to make sure you are or are not pregnant!!
