Hi. I'm just looking for some reassurance and possible answers.

My husband and I have been trying to conceive for a few months now. My last period was Jan.12th, 2013, I'm on a 32 day cycle. My last ovulation occured on Jan.27th. On Feb.4th, I began spotting. Started in the afternoon. Only when I used the bathroom and saw the spotting on the tissue after wiping. This same spotting continued for 8 days. Which brings us to Feb.12th & 13th. I had no spotting. I was due for my period to start on Feb.14th. I usually wake up with it the day its due. So, now a day later 2/15, still nothing. I had a blood hCG test done yesterday, results were negative. Urine hCG this morning negative.
What is the possiblity that I am pregnant, but the hCG levels are not high enough yet?
If not pregnant, than what is the cause of this? (Aside from stress, because although I ask questions, I am intrigued to learn anything new - and the getting pregnant process is very intriguing to me).

Some symptoms:
little cm.
mild cramping-abdomenal (more from the center of my lower abdomen, not right or left as per the usual)
mild headaches
dizziness
major fatigue
mood swings
bloating

Important Note: About a month ago, I had lower abdomenal discomfort, and have an abdomenal/pelvic exam. Found a less than 1cm cyst on my right ovary.

Thank You so much for any and all input.

Kate

I'm no expert in this field but your bleeding and late period could possibly be due to pregnancy.
Sometimes you can experience implantation bleeding which is lighter than a normal period.

If it was implantation bleeding, you can get a positive test from around 4 or 5 days after the bleeding stops but of course it does depend on the HCG levels. Some women won't get a positive for a few weeks.

I'd be interested to see what the experts answer with. My only suggestion would be to try a test in a week or so, if still no period wait a week and try again and go from there
