    late period
    An_248360 posted:
    so i am never late on my period and never have been, but this month i got my period 4 days late and i keep track of when it comes, when i got it, it is very light like spotting, i took a pregnancy test and it came up negative, but was showing signs of pregnancy, no morning sickness tho, just frequent headaches, and my stomach was hard and extended a little bit, what is going on?

    Unfortunately, no one on an interenet board can tell you what is going on. It's possible you are pregnant and just not showing on the test or it's possible you didn't ovulate.

    well i got it, it just came 4 days late, i am going to the doctor today to find out why! because since ive gotten my period it has never came 4 days late! its just weird to me!
    tlkittycat1968 replied to kbult0814's response:
    4 days late isn't that bad. I've had my period come 3 days late and while I was a bit worried when it was late, I was just glad it came. Sometimes our periods are late for no reason.
