If the tests are negative 13 days after your period was due, I don’t think you are pregnant.  There could definitely be another reason your period is so late – stress, thyroid issues?

Something similar happened to me…I missed my period, but got negative results when I tested. My period ended up showing up, 46 days later, which is VERY unlike me—I’m usually very regular. The doctor said that it was most likely an anovulatory cycle that is more comman that women realize. I always assumed you miss your period and that means you’re pregnant, so it was a very frustrating side. On the plus side, I got pregnant my next cycle. I hope you’re able to get some answers!

I was 12 days late once, but that was definitely due to stress (death in the family).  Of course, when my period didn’t come I was stressed for other reasons which did not help at all and my doctor had to give me medicine which made my period start thus relieving the stress.  Since you said you weren’t stressed, perhaps it was just an anovulatory cycle as others have said, but the fact that you missed your period has since caused you to become stressed?  Just a thought it happened to me!  Good luck!

I am no expert, but from what I understand, stress around when your period is due will not make it late but stress when you were supposed to ovulate can cause you to ovulate late  or not at all (and thus make your period late). 

Are you 13 days past when you where due to start your period? If that is the case I would almost certainly think it would show up on a test (unless you are one of those lucky ladies who will test negative even at 8 monthes along) I would wait anouther week and then go back to the doctor. 


Best wishes! I hope it all works out for you!

Our bodies just do crazy things sometimes. At 13 days late, I think it’s really unlikely that you’d be pregnant and still getting negative tests. I tested the day after my period was due and got a very obvious positive.

I jut looked quickly at your previous post. Enging a 4 yer relationshi and btteling with depression sounds like a lot of stress. You mentioned  new job recently. Is it possible that you are not relizing that these things are sstressing your out physically? Sounds to me like such life changes could mess with your cycle.
