    Could I be preganant

    I am currently 9 days late and I normally start like clockwork. I am not feeling myself so I went and bought a 2 pack ept and they were both negative. I called my physicians office and was told to come in and have a blood test done because sometimes it wont show on a urine test. Is that true? Could I still be pregnant? I assumed with me being so late on my period that it would show on a urine test, but since it hasn't I'm really starting to think there is something seriously wrong.

    That's true. Some women, for whatever reason, don't show on home pregnancy tests and have to have a blood test to confirm pregnancy. It's nothing serious.

    There is also the possibility that you didn't ovulate and no ovulation usually means no period. It's common and will happen to most women at least once during their reproductive years. Just because it's never happened to you before doesn't mean it can't/won't.

    Thanks, I think I'm going to call and make an appointment with my doctor to get checked out. If I'm not pregnant I think there may be something more serious going on because I have a distinct protrusion in my abdomen which I hope is me showing early which I did with my last pregnancy. I was wearing my maternity pants at 7 weeks with my last pregnancy because of the abdominal swelling, but I also have a history of ovarian cyst which caused me lose my right ovary and tube.
