HELP! 8 days late negative test at 6 days what should I do??????
MsBC0514 posted:
Hello ladies, I got my IUD removed August of last year and trust me it has been ruff. Month after month of getting AF, then to make matters worse DH and I are still fairly young. We decided to not think about so much since it's just too much heart break surrounding the subject and to let nature run its course. Well now this month my period is late! As of today I am 34 days in my cycle with no sight of AF. I am normally a 24-28 day women and get AF every month like clock work even when I had my IUD. I am considered 8 days late, I took a pregnancy test on Wednesday evening ( I don't know if the fact that I didn't have my normal dark urine and it was only a few drops that came out that it didn't pick up high levels of HCG I really don't know. TMI sorry) but it was negative. I am not having any symptoms of pregnancy at all I do have a few mild cramps but that's it. Well here it is Friday an still no AF I am attempting to wait it out to see what happens because I don't know if one the test was indeed correct, two due to me being overweight that is it affecting my hcg levels, three could it be something serious. Any advice would be helpful.
Joel Bernstien, MD responded:
If you continued to get negative tests then you most likely not pregnant. The most likely explanation is that you are not ovulating (or at least did not this month). Go talk to your OBGYN and they can do a test to see for certain if you aren't ovulating.
