Hello everyone,
I am apart of a buddy group but I decided to send a general message out to see if anyone has ever experienced a late menstrual cycle but received negative hpt's? I have always been pretty normal and since I have been charting and tracking, I have always been right on time with my cycles. However, this particular month I am late by a few days and I took a hpt and it came back negative. My doc says to test again in a week and then if I still dont start that she wants me to come in, but I was just wondering if anyone else had experienced this or could provide some insight for me.
Thank you!

I'm due for AF...she is currently MIA...as of yesterday my test still said negative. I figure I'll wait till Monday and if shes still a no show I'll test again by then she should have come and gone. I'm usually a very regular 28 day cycle.

I know, it is all very confusing. I am usually a normal 30 day cycle. This whole year and last I have had no deviations from my cycle, up until now. I am now 3 days late and I have no clue what to think. After a while of ttc it begans to consume you. The more I tell myself to calm down and be prepared either way, the not knowing is killing me and my husband. He is trying not to get his hopes up, I can tell but i can still see the anxiousness in his eyes and face. I tested the first day I missed my cycle, yesterday and today but bfn. I don't know what to think. My doc says to wait and test again in a couple days, so I ordered some test from this site since they are cheaper. I hope they are still as accurate, but I can not continue to buy drug store tests, they are way too expensive. I have been doing some researching on the net and they say that there are several other reasons for a missed af and negative hpt but all of them sound very bad. lol! I was wondering why it seemed that I was getting + ov test later in the month of June after getting positives in the middle of June which would have been my normal time of ov. Did you experience anything like that? I am wondering if I just ovulated late or twice or even at all, which also throws off your cycles since your cycles are set for 14 days after ov. It is all very confusing and aggravating. Good luck and baby dust to you.

I had that before. Sometimes TTC will throw off your cycle (in my experience at least) and the stress can sometimes delay your O-day, which in turn delays AF.
Good luck!! I was once 3 days late with nothing but negative HPTs and then she came.....ugh. I hope yours turns out well!!

Thanks for the reply. This is now day 4, no signs of AF but still negative hpts. How long would you guys suggest waiting before going in to the doc for blood tests? Also, did this happen to anyone and they found out something else was wrong other than pregnancy?

Well my af decided to come finally, late, and bringing the worst set of cramps I've had since at LEAST prior to my son 5 years ago, if not the worst ever. You could probably take a blood test at any point now. I would wait until your typical period would be over though just to be sure (I'm extra cautious though) Smile.

I had it a few times while TTC that AF was 10 days or so late. I'm not sure why. Probably had to do with stress. Sad It's so frustrating!!!!

Hi Darneesha- I know I'm late posting here but I wanted to let you know that I've had that before...I am pretty clockwork too at 29-30 day cycles, and in June of 2009 AF was late by 5 days... I had a really stressful month that month and I think that's why, kept getting BFNs and so that stressed me out more! AF finally did arrive, which became more disappointing than ever. I do know it's possible to get negative HPKs and be pregnant, but it's rare. I hope next month you're back on track! GL to you!

Butterfly,
I seem to be back on track this month for a 30 day cycle. AF came on July 10 after waiting about 4-5 days, then Ovulation happened on July 26th, day 17 of my cycle. I am now in my 2ww but today which is 3dpo I am feeling a lower abdominal pressure, not pain just pressure. Never experienced this so early before AF....somewhat confused.

Hmmm not sure what the pressure is...I get that too sometimes along with ovarian pain/cramps when AF is no where near... I would just say keep monitoring yourself for now. Glad you're back on track, but boooo to AF... so sorry. Sad

I have been through that twice last year i was 30 days late and not pregnant it turned out i had a cyst and it was painful as can be when it busted. and a couple months back i was late 4 days due to stress i didnt think stress could cause one to be so late but i'm guessing now it can.
