Take another pregnancy test, save yourself the agony of wondering! It could probably be the stress of you worrying at this point.

Also, NEVER go off anti-depressants cold turkey like that. You can have very serious side-effects and make yourself very sick. Believe me, I know.

I agree with Lyndzo, please go take another test. If it is still negative then you are more than likely not pregnant. I would call your doctor as well and let them know that you took another test and it was negative but you have never been this late before and see what they have to say. Also ask you doctor about BD options since you know that you don’t want a child right now it’s better to protect yourself until you are ready.

Not trying to scare you but i know someone who took multiple tests at home and doctor tests that rely on urine and all were negative all the way up to 4 months pregnant but when she finally got the blood one it was positive. I would recomend just going in and getting the blood pregnancy test they are more accurate and you can stop worrying about it. I hope you feel better soon and get an answer.

@eeerika22:  Depression meds take a while to build up in your system and take a while to clear completely, that is why you haven’t noticed and change in your depression symptoms. Definately have a blood test done to make sure. Are you ony type of birth control? That would be another good thing to look into while you are getting the test done. It seems to be having a huge strain on your relationship having to worry about this each month.

Oh sweetie. I would take a test again, and if it’s negative, make an appointment with your doctor. I had this happen to me a few months ago, where I had a random 40 day cycle in the middle of all of my perfect, 28 day cycles. Random. Totally unexplained.So it can happen.

After that, if you’re not going to be on BC, I strongly urge you to either use condoms every time or start tracking your cycle if you don’t want to get pregnant. Especially since you are on anti-depressants, I think this is extremely important for you. Yes, it is a lot of work taking your temperature and charting can be a pain, but it’s worth it if you don’t want to get on another form of BC.

I’m so sorry you’re going through this. I will say from experience, I went from May to Sept last year without having a period at all, and taking multiple tests. I was in the middle of planning a wedding and dealing with all of that. We really wanted to be pregnant but there was just no way I was. After we got married, We weren’t really planning to TTC anytime soon…joke was on us, 2 months to the day after we got married I found out we were expecting. Stressing is part of it, but let me tell you, I was an emotional wreck and I knew that played a part as to why I didn’t get it. I had been very regular almost every month of my cycle, not on any type of BC either.

I would call your dr and see what he/she says about it. Your body could just be going through a lot of changes. Hope it all ends well!

I thought depression meds were only harmful in the third trimester, but maybe I’m wrong about that. Anyway, get yourself to the doctor for a blood test and to discuss what’s going on!

@eeerika22:  To help relieve your stress regarding the antidepressants, according to the Mayo Clinic, the risk to the fetus is really low and is concentrated in the last half of the pregnancy.  The risk is low enough that, often times, doctors feel there is more risk to the mother in going off the meds than there is to the unborn child being on them (I also take antidepressants so I’ve looked into this).  http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/antidepressants/DN00007

As far as if you are pregnant, I’d take another pregnancy test (since it sounds like its been a week since you got the negatives).  If it is still negative but you still have no period, I’d call your doctor and see if they’ll do a blood test.

ETA: Obviously if you determine you are pregnant, you and your doctor will need to do a risk benefit analysis for your specific situation to determine whether staying on or discontinuing your meds for the pregnancy is the best option.  But don’t let it stress you out yet before you even know if you are pregnant.

Definitely make a doctors appointment pronto.  From your symptoms (pain, dizziness, missed period), it could also be an ectopic pregnancy (which would explain the negative tests), which can be very dangerous if left untreated.

The ladies seem to be giving you very good advice on the pregnancy aspect of things, but what really stuck out to me is the way that your SO seems to be treating you.

If you are pregnant, having a baby is stressful enough without having to deal with someone who is negative, picks fights and is totally unsupportive.  If he was so worried about you getting pregnant, then why didn’t he wear condoms?

In any event, I would really urge you to see someone to talk about your relationship as it seems to be incredibly unhealthy and not what you need right now.  A chance to re-evaluate would do you a whole lot of good.
