    10 days late, several negative tests
    Ddavis1028 posted:
    My period usually arrives between the 33rd-36th day of my cycle. I am now 10 days late. Last period started June 23rd. Took several tests, the latest this morning, all negative. I'm not on any BC and my husband and I don't use any other form of contraception. could this be something serious, since at this point I am probably not pregnant?
    GeminiJedi responded:
    This happened to me last month (July), and I'm not pregnant. Has anything stressful happened to you in the last month? Even something like a move, which may not necessarily be stressful emotionally, is still stressful physically. My husband and I moved across country mid-cycle, and mine ended up being 12 days late (usually 33-34 days and this came on the 45th day). I went to the dr because I was late, but had several negative tests. The test at the dr was negative, too (which was devastating to me) but she wasn't worried about it saying that the move interrupted my cycle and not to worry about it unless I went without a period & had more negative tests through August. Sure enough, three days later my period came. So give it another week or so and then call your dr.

    Update: it has been 3 months since my last period, not pregnant. 3 weeks ago I had some spotting 3 days in a row but never got my period. I don't currently have insurance so I'm not sure what options I have as far as treatment. I'm assuming none though. Not sure what to do at this point.
    LoisaMay replied to Ddavis1028's response:
    Have you taken additional pregnancy tests since 3 months ago? If not, that is the first thing you should do, since your hormone levels could have been low enough at first that a test would not show positive results.

    You should seek out free clinics in your area if you do not have health insurance. I don't know where you reside, but if you have a Planned Parenthood nearby, this would be a good place to go to start. They provide patient care services and will know where to refer you if you need additional tests or services.

    Here is the Planned Parenthood website: . There is a center locator on the webpage (by zipcode).
