My period is like clockwork. It comes between 3 and 4pm on the 28th day of my cycle. I’ve been off the pill for almost 8 months and it hasn’t changed. We’re not necessarily trying to have a baby, but we’re definitely not doing anything to prevent it. I’m currently on day 46 of my cycle (18 days late). I took a fourth test two days ago first thing in the morning and got my fourth negative. I didn’t think much of it. But all week I’ve been experiencing extreme nausea between 5-7pm. The smell of coffee completely turns my stomach (I’m seriously a coffee addict, so this is really strange to me). I put it all out of my mind and decided to have a glass of wine on Christmas eve with my husband. I had about four sips and then set it aside because I wasn’t feeling great. About an hour later I was laying on the bathroom floor with severe nausea just praying I would throw up. I have a pretty high alcohol tolerance so again, it struck me as weird. I’m terrified to take a test because I know another negative test will just crush me and I’ll just feel really stupid. Am I crazy to think I’m pregnant? Should I test again, or should I wait another week and test again? I went to a walk in clinic and asked if I would be able to get a blood test and they told me that since my home test was negative, I wasn’t pregnant. I pretty much just feel crazy at this point, but something weird is going on in my body. I just have a feeling.

Because you haven’t had a period I would say it is still possible and perhaps even likely that you are pregnant, but not far along to be producing enough bcg hormone for a positive urine test. You could schedule a doctors appointment and they would probably do a blood test. Conditions such as an ectopic pregnancy, iirc, can cause a false negative.

It’s fairly rare, but for some ladies their urine pregnancy tests never turn positive when they are pregnant. My friend has had two kids and never gotten a positive pee test. Maybe you can be more insistent on a blood test? Especially because if yOi aren’t preggo then you can explore other reasons you are feeling off.

Wow, it would be extremely unusual for you not to test positive at 18 days late. However, if you have a GP, I’d make an appointment and have them do a blood test. Most GPs will do a pregnancy test for you (blood if you tell them you are 18 days late and a urine test doesn’t test positive), even if they won’t see you for an appointment.

try to have a doctor check it out. I’ve heard a few stories of women I know that never had a test read possitive but they were definitely pregnant. Blood tests are more accurate. It certainly happens. Worth a shot.

maybe a silly question, but are you definitely taking the tests right? Are they decent tests, not expired, etc?

I would think you’re not pregnant if your tests are negative and you’re having that many symptoms

The home tests are very accurate. My OB didn’t even do a blood test because they trust if you got a + then you are pregnant. If you’ve tested with a few different brands I would guess you are not pregnant. Although, since your period hasnt shown up you still have a chance. Since it is so late you could call your OB, they might have you wait longer but could at least give you directions. It’s always possible travel or stress could delay ovulation

not a silly question… yes, they’re all new. different brand too. 🙁 I think the cashier at cvs thinks I’m a nut by now lol.

At home pregnancy tests are very reliable so being that late and having so many negatives probably means something else is responsible for your symptoms. I would book an apt to see your doctor though. He/she should be able to get to the bottom of things for you.

It’s likely that you’re not pregnant and your body is trying to adjust. I got off birth control last January and had a normal period until August. After that, there was no period for 108 days. I felt all the symptoms including nausea and thought I could be pregnant since DH and I were NTNP. All my test kept saying negative so I scheduled a doctors appointment. On the day of the appointment, I got my period. I honestly think birth control can affect u for a while.
