    3 negative tests, late/missed period though...??

    Hello all! I am 34 years old and have always had a very regular period, normal cycle, I have never missed a period (always run 28 or 29 days). My husband and I stopped using birth control 2 months ago. My last period started on 7/17. I am now several days late. I took a test on Monday evening, one Thursday, and another test this morning, all negative.

    Someone mentioned that maybe I didn't ovulate... which would be a major bummer on our 1st official month trying and for trying to calculate fertility this month.

    Could it be that I am pregnant even with 3 negative tests?

    If I am not, how do I figure out my ovulation cycle this month?

    Any advice would be appreciated!

    It usually takes approx 3 months for your body to adjust to not being on the birth control. Ive been told when stopping bc that in most cases it takes that 3 months for your body to readjust and it can take up to a year to conceive....all depending on the person.
