9 days late, negative
lanny_413 posted:
I am always regular, always have been! Augsut 26 I tested positive, the day of my missed period. 1 1/2 weeks later (September 6th), I started and was considered to have had a clinical pregnancy. Because I am regular, I expected to start October 6th. Here it is, 9 days later, and still no period. I took two tests that showed negative. Could I be pregnant and its not showing yet? Or is my very normal cycle now messed up?

It may take a bit for your period to return to normal after a mischarriage which is what a chemical pregnancy technically is.

Okay, thank you
Would it still be possible to ovulate during that time and possibly become pregnant?
tlkittycat1968 replied to lanny_413's response:
Yes. You can ovulate and if you happen to have sex around the time you ovulate, you can get pregnant wihout having a period.
lanny_413 replied to tlkittycat1968's response:
In reading over this, I realized I said clinical was actually considered a "chemical" pregnancy. SOmething was going on, but nothing implanted and my uterus lining returned to normal. Therefore, should I not have had a period on time, like I ALWAYS have?
I am now 12 days late (of what would normally be the day)
