I take it this was a false alarm? No updates that I see. Have you thought about charting your cycles? tcoyf.com has a great program for tracking and it would give you a much clearer picture of what is going on. I used the site to manage my irregular cycles and get pregnant with my son.

It could be that your real cycle is longer than the "standard" 28 day cycle - my own cycle runs anywhere from 30-36 days or more depending on stress during the first half of my cycle.

It could be that you're just too early in pregnancy for it to be picked up on a test right away. You do have a history of getting negatives months in, so who knows.

Best bet is to always talk to your doctor when you can. Sometimes it's hard to get in and see them.

In the meantime, if it's something that interests you, you should check out Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler. If you aren't pregnant this time around, it might be able to give you a better handle on what's going on.

Good luck and fingers crossed!

I was 3 months pregnant with my first child before I could get that "+" on the stick!

Best wishes! emoticon

Sorry if wishing you good luck is considered negative....

in my experience i found those tests to be pretty accurate, especially if your period is that late. also if your periods were irregular before you were on the pill, it could be that your body is becoming its irregular self again now that it doesnt have the pill to regulate it. good luck.

Thanks for being a sour puss but I was just getting opinions from others' experiences. I dont think my male doctor can give me his opinion. LIke I put I will get a blood test drawn and find out soon enough. Thought I could start an interesting topic see what most people thought but you didn't have to be negative.

I think those are questions for your doctor, not for internet advice!

Good luck!

Just wanted to get other womens' opinions on what you think is going on. First, I'll start in January. I quit taking birth control pills (finished the pack too) in January. We planned to get pregnant in March/April. Periods came regularly since then almost as if I was still on pill. Now, end of April, I'm on day 38 since my last menstral cycle began. If I am correct, we do start counting from day 1 of last period, right?

Okay, so it's day 38, so all my home pregnancy tests have said Negative or "not pregnant". I've tried e.p.t. , 1st response, and even ClearBlue, thinking it'll change and say Positive. Nope. All have said negative...does this mean that I'm not pregnant or could my hormone levels be too low to show?

Regardless, I'm calling the doctor in the morning to get a blood test done to test and see if I'm pregnant.

THe only other thing I could think is if I'm just missing a month. WOuld that happen since it's been almost 5 months without birth control and it just now acting up? So confused, a bit. I dont think it could be anything serious.

I'm hoping it's that I'm pregnant. I haven't really had any period symptoms like I normally get a couple days prior to my period starting. So kinda just wanting to see who think I'm pregnant and who thinks I'm skipping a month...share your opinioins.

my husband said that when we were pregnant with Angie, that home pregnancy tests said negative too....which I found the "baby journal" i wrote it when i was pregnant with her (1st pregnancy) and I even wrote that I got negative tests. So that makes me really hopeful. I'm calling tomorrow morning hoping they can work me in, it's not like it takes long to get blood drawn. Just asking what you think girls...or guys lol...:D

I will update this if anyone wants to know once I do find out...*crosses fingers*
