could be a lot of factors…

i just wanted to say tho, on the preg test thingy, one of my friends was having similar symptoms and took a test and it was neg.  then 2 weeks later took another test and it was positive….turns out she was around 4 wks pregnant when it finally was positive…

i’m not saying you are or arent, just that it’s something to think about….

in any case, a call to your doctor wouldnt hurt none…

it could be your change in diet and exercise too…dunno…

I’ve heard that working out can change your cycle, maybe that’s just it?

Weight loss, stress and other factors can cause your period to be late. I, like you had an extremely regular cycle but the week before my wedding it was 3 days late (I’m sure due to stress). However, like PP have said maybe the tests just aren’t registering yet. I’d give it a few more days and then test again. If you still get a negative you should call your doc, because something is going on pregnancy or not.

Well, first of all, condoms are only 85% effective over the long haul. And just because he doesn’t finish in you doesn’t mean you can’t get pregnant…sperm exists in pre-ejaculation fluid. 

6 pounds in 2 weeks is more weight than is recommended and could totally be throwing your body for a loop. I’d give it a few days, test again, and call up your gynecologist and mention how strange it is.

It’s probably the unhealthy amount of weight that you lost, but you could definitely be pregnant (one of the symptoms is frequent urination). Like the other ladies said, wait a few days and retest.

Also, if I were you, i’d look into a more effective method of birth control!! (and, I got pregnant taking the pill perfectly, so “using a condom every time” definitely doesn’t mean you are covered and in the clear)

I’m also ridiculously regular, and a few months ago my period was 10 days late.  I wasn’t stressed, sick, no big changes at all really.  It was just late, and I’ve been regular since then.  Sometimes you’re just late, and there’s really no reason.

Maybe take this as a blessing in disguise if you are worried and not excited about the possibility of being pregnant.

@MacFaniam24: 6lbs in two weeks is absolutely not unhealthy.  I was a boxer and had to make weight for several fights, and my doctor always told me anything mroe than 5lbs a week would be deemed unsafe.  That being said, if you arent used to losing weight that COULD be the reason.  What I would do is call your doctor or a clinic for a blood test to be 100% sure.  You’re probably ok, but put your mind to rest.

I agree with others.  Wait a few more days and then re-test.  I was always regular and then got off the pill 3 months ago.  We went to Amesterdam last month the week of my PM and it screwed things up.  It was a week late.  I think it was because of the time changes and my body trying to get use to being off the pill.  I too agree that the workout could be it.
