9 days late, negative

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?

Yes. You can ovulate and if you happen to have sex around the time you ovulate, you can get pregnant wihout having a period.

In reading over this, I realized I said clinical pregnancy....it 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)
