It may be possible that you could have O’d late this month and may not be later. Or the stress is causing your period to delay. Are you using any methods or birth control or charting? I think by now a pregnancy test would be able to detect the hormone, it should be over 99% effective by this time. I know my cycles were all over the place. I would recommend to stop testing and try to relax and if AF doesn’t show in another week, call you doctor. Good luck.

@irin997- Those apps can be useless unless you are charting your temperature. The app is just guessing which days based on your previous cycle. I just know when I went off the pill I had 2 perfect cycles and then I was all over the place. I did call my doctor when I wasn’t getting my period and they said that usually if you have gone 60 days since your last period then they can do some tests, but other than that they told me the HPT were pretty reliable. Hope you get an answer soon.

I read a study a couple years ago that had some really interesting findings.  According to the study, women having normal amounts of sex will end up pregnant approximately fifty times throughout their lifetimes.  The vast majority of those pregnancies, however, will naturally terminate long for one reason or another before the woman even knows she’s pregnant.  The study suggested that most of the times that a woman is a day or two late but then starts her period, the period was actually late because she was indeed pregnant, and when it does come, it’s actually an extremely early term miscarriage.

That may be what’s going on with you.

I stopped BC last September and had 28-29 cycles with ovulation around day 17 until 2 months ago.   Since then, my cycles have been 34-35 days long with ovulation around day 22.  The only thing I can attribute to the change in my cycle is that I started a heavy lifting exercise regiment about 7 weeks ago.  But sometimes you’re just late for no reason.

Have you had any crazy diet changes or exercise? I know that can make a difference sometimes. Even if you have never had a problem due to stress before that can happen too. Sometimes the littlest thing can make me a week late. I never used to be like that. Now if something stressful happens one of three things happens: 1. I’m just fine and regular 2. I’m a few days late or 3. I can have where my period gets skipped altogether. Option 3 is not fun… 

Anyway, my point is that even little things that you would not make a difference… well they do. I’d give it another day or two and check again with a test if you don’t have it. I seem to check and then mine comes the next day. All that paranoia for nothing!
