DH and I are not actively TTC at the moment but we were a little naughty and did have unprotected sex 5 times this month! (Not when I thought I was ovulating, though I haven't really been tracking properly...)
My period is now 4 days late for the first time in years - I usually have a clockwork 28 day cycle. I took a pregnancy test the day after I was due - BFN. Then I took another test the following day - still negative. I haven't tested since but still no sign of AF whatsoever!
Any thoughts on why my period is late/not coming, especially when my cycles are usually so regular? I know I could have ovulated late or something, but I haven't been overly stressed or had any lifestyle changes this past month. Is there a possibility I could be pregnant even though I've had two BFNs? Anyone had a similar experience?
While we weren't actively TTC I would be overjoyed at the thought of a BFP but am not going to get ahead of myself since I had two negative tests... Thanks for any input!

Late/missed period but negative pregnancy test...

Hmm probably you're not pregnant then, you'd expect to see a line on a home test by now- what brand of test did you buy? First Response Early Result (FRER) are the most reliable.
There's lots of reasons your cycle dates might change - exercise/weight loss, stress, an ovarian cyst, or even a chemical pregnancy that hasn't resolved yet.
Maybe do another test in a day or so with a FRER and see if there is a line. If AF doesn't show id go to the GP.

It took me a week past AF being late to get even a faint line mainly because I ovulated much later than I thought however I know women who haven't gotten BFP til weeks after their AF is late coz their HCG levels didn't rise as quickly as most. Test again in a few days.

Thanks for the replies, ladies. Still no sign of AF :-( So still in limo land wondering what on earth is going on with my cycle. I haven't taken any other HPTs as I don't want to disappoint myself, but I might wait until I'm over a week late and test again just to be sure!

You could be one of those who don't show a positive until much later. I show a positive the day after af is due but have a friend who doesn't show a positive until up to 6 weeks later. There are many reasons why af is late. Take a test again in a few days and if that is bfn and no af maybe head to Dr? Good luck

I had a really weird thing with my HPTs with my second bub. Internet cheapies all showed a second line, sent DH to get me a FRER but he brought me some clear blue tests they showed no second line - BFN all three of them. later that day and for the two days after I tested with FRERs and I was pregnant. It was so confusing. Also with my first I didn't get a BFP until 15dpo. Good luck!!

Hi guys! Just thought I should update saying that AF arrived a few days ago, VERY late, but still made an appearance, so not pregnant! Very weird that it was so late this cycle. Thanks for all the support!
