Causes of Late Period when Negative Pregnancy Test

Causes of Late Period when Negative Pregnancy TestIs your period late and you have a negative pregnancy test?

Late periods are so scary and nerve wracking, especially when you are sexually active. Even if you’re not that sexually active, it’s worrisome. It doesn’t matter if your period is one day late, or a week late, the sheer fact that your period hasn’t arrived when it was supposed to can be a huge stressor in our already stressful lives.

To the average Jane who is uninformed and may not know anything about menstrual cycles, she may ask herself “Why is my period late? Does this mean that I’m pregnant?”

1. Pregnancy — Being pregnant is the number cause of a late period. Since a majority of women will conceive around the time that they ovulate, which is often fourteen days before the start of their expected period, one of the symptoms of early pregnancy is a missed or late period. (When you’re pregnant, the hormones that support your growing baby switch off your regular menstrual cycles. You will not have a period again until after your baby is born.)

Late Period, but Negative Pregnancy Test

When you have a late period, you need to run and buy a home pregnancy test to confirm that you are not pregnant. Once it’s established that you have a late period but aren’t not pregnant, it’s time to figure out what other reasons may be causing your late period.

Your menstrual cycle can be a delicate flower. There are many factors (like lifestyle habits, medications, stress, and etc.) that can throw the timing of your period out of whack. Late periods can be worrisome, but your doctor won’t diagnose you with amenorrhea (lack of menstruation) until you have missed your period for three months in a row.

If you are a healthy woman who has always been regular, a late period can be a symptom of early pregnancy. You may have a negative pregnancy test, but you could still be pregnant. There is always the chance that you took the test too early – the home pregnancy test that you bought has low sensitivity, and it cannot pick up the traces of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) in your urine. (hCG is the hormone produced by the placenta during implantation, and it only occurs during pregnancy.) You will need to wait an additional week, and if your period is still late, take another pregnancy test.

(Please visit my store for my picks on home pregnancy tests with the highest sensitivity. Recommended Products for Women Trying to Conceive. According to numerous research studies, the home pregnancy test that’s most sensitive at detecting pregnancy early is the First Response Early Result Pregnancy Test.)

Other Causes of Late Period if You’re Not Pregnant

There are several reasons for why your period is late, but you’re not pregnant. The most common causes for a late period in non-pregnant women include the following:

2. Breastfeeding — New mothers who are breastfeeding often experience late periods, or no periods at all. This is due to the high levels of prolactin in their bodies. Prolactin is a hormone that establishes breast milk production, but it also suppresses the hormones associated with your menstrual cycle. Breastfeeding is associated with late periods.

3. Stress and Anxiety — Another reason for a late period is increased stress and anxiety. When our bodies are stressed, anxious, worried, and just emotionally worn out, they can produce hormones (like cortisol – the “fight or flight” hormone, and adrenaline). Cortisol is produced from progesterone, which is responsible for thickening your endometrium (lining of the uterus) after ovulation to prepare it for implantation. When you are stressed out, this can cause your body to steal progesterone from its normal purpose in your menstrual cycle to create extra levels of cortisol. As a result, this can cause fertility problems and late periods.

If you are very stressed out and have late periods, you need to find relaxation methods to help decrease your stress levels. Yoda, meditation, and other forms of exercise can help de-stress you and make you feel better.

4. Jetlag — If you’ve been traveling and have jetlag, it’s common for you to have late periods. When you travel over different time zones in a short period of time, your body’s natural rhythms (such as sleep and wake) are thrown off. And menstruation can also be messed up for a few days. Your body has to adjust to the new time zone, so you may end up with a late period.

5. Certain Medications — There are a number of medications that can cause late periods. Certain birth control pills, implants, and shots can cause you to have late periods, or no periods at all. Antidepressants, thyroid medication, chemotherapy drugs, and antipsychotics can also cause late periods or menstrual irregularity.

6. Hormonal Imbalance — If you suffer from underlying hormonal imbalances, you may have late periods. Women who are entering perimenopause (“the menopausal transition”) and women with polycystic ovarian syndrome often experience irregular ovulation, late periods, and missed periods.

7. Thyroid Disease — Women who have thyroid problems can experience menstrual abnormalities. They can experience late periods, no periods at all. Women with hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid) can have infrequent (not regular) or light periods. Women with hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) can have periods that occur too frequently, and bleeding that’s too heavy.

8. Vigorous Exercise — A common cause of late periods is too much exercise. Intense exercise regiments can stress out your reproductive system and lead to late periods and fertility problems. Moderate exercise (30 minutes a day) is often the best way to keep your periods regular, and stay healthy.

9. Poor Eating Habits — When you have poor eating habits, or a diet that’s high in carbohydrates, you can deprive your body of the nutrients that it needs for a healthy menstrual cycle. Poor eating habits and not getting the vitamins that you need can delay your menstrual cycle and lead to late periods. Drinking too much caffeine and excessive alcohol use may also alter your menstrual cycle and cause late periods.

10. Uterine Abnormalities — Sometimes a physical reason is the cause of your late period. Women who suffer from fibroids, polyps, cysts, and endometriosis (a reproductive disorder that occurs when the cells from the lining of your uterus grow in other areas of your body) can suffer from late periods and other menstrual abnormalities.

Should You Worry about Late Periods?

Menstrual cycles are different for everyone. Some women only get their period four times a year. Others have periods twice a month. Some women have heavy periods of vaginal bleeding every two or three months. Other women spot between periods. Most women who have irregular periods just don’t ovulate regularly.

Most irregular and late periods are not dangerous and can be easily treated. In a majority of the cases of late periods, the cause is a hormonal imbalance or ovulation problem that your doctor or healthcare provider can treat. At some point in your life, you will have a late period (or two) and you’re not pregnant.

In many cases, your physician will tell you not to worry about having a late period, or a missed period once or twice a year. You may suffer from random periods of poor eating habits, high levels of stress, emotional problems, vigorous exercise, and etc.

If you are worried about your late period, please contact your gynecologist or healthcare provider and schedule an appointment to see what’s going on and what is causing your late period.

Everything said was very reasonable. But, what about this?
suppose you were to create a killer post title? I ain’t saying your information is not good., however what if you added a title that grabbed a
person’s attention? I mean Causes of Late Period with Negative Pregnancy Test is kinda vanilla.
You might peek at Yahoo’s front page and note
how they create article headlines to get viewers to open the links.
You might try adding a video or a picture or two to get readers interested about what you’ve written.

Just my opinion, it would bring your posts a little bit more interesting.

A kidney cyst is a round pouch of tissue (or a closed pocket filled with liquid) that is growing on your kidneys. They can be a cause of pain and bleeding. Your doctor can drain the cyst. Go to the doctor and see what he/she recommends for you. Good luck.

I had my youngest son in July of 1994. During the c-section I had a tubal ligation. The doctor that delivered my son and did the tubal was NOT my doctor, but the doctor on call since my doctor was out of town when I delivered. At 37 I was told I was most likely perimenopausal. Even though I was told this 8 years ago, my periods have always been normal and my cycle is every 27-28 days. Yesterday, my husband and I were discussing some things and it dawned on me that my last cycle was December 12th. I am now about 3 weeks late. I have only been 3 weeks late 3 times in my life and I have 3 children. My question and concern is I am 45 years old, I had a tubal ligation, I am never late, and am now 3 weeks late. I am really hoping that this is me starting to experience the change of life… but I am also concerned. Any thoughts from the experts?

Hi,
I had my last period on the 15th of november, and i had unprotected sex on the 24th. I have had irregular periods before once late but usually they come very early i usually get it every threeish weeks, but even so im not usually this late. I had some cramping leading me to believe i was going to get my period but it hasnt turned up. I have thick white mucus which i dont usually get before my period. 2 days ago i took a HPT and it was negative. Could i be pregnant? there isnt really any stress, or any change in my life other than working more often? Really hope you can help me as i want to go to the doctors with something other than my paranoia!

Hi Doctor,

My period is nine days late and i’m confused as to whether i’m pregnant. It would be great to hear a learned opinion from you.

I might be pregnant because i had intercourse twice in the weeks after my last period. One of which could have been my ovulation day, although a condom was used. The second time, semen might have been in contact with the labia and/or vagina.

I might not be pregnant because in the past month:
1. I was sick twice, and took medications for diarrhoea, nausea, antibiotics, paracetamol. From my experience, my period would be delayed up to 3 days if i had taken any medication, but never 9 days late.

2. I had lost at least several kilos within a couple of weeks.

3. I have been emotionally unstable recently – worry, anxiety, frequent crying, poor eating habit, poor sleeping patterns.

I plan to take a home pregnancy test if the period still doesn’t appear on the 14th day.

A single female, who would love to have children, but with the right person and at the right time (not this time).

Hi, I appreciate your information, but I suggest that you reread your posts before submitting them. There are words omitted, and you have Yoda instead of Yoga. It’s important to do this for the main reason of this: your article is about a very serious topic and lifechanging situations. It’s difficult to take a writer seriously about a topic when they obviously weren’t concerned enough to read their work once through….just sayin’….

Hi!
I really need your help! My bf and I last contact was Sept 13. We always have unprotected sex. I had my period Sept 16 to 18, and it is very light, only the first day was heavy (not sure if it was my period). It was too early for my cycle, I always have a regular 28-30 days cycle. On October 1st, i had spotting which is dark brown in color, it only appears red when I whipped. So, assuming that my last period was Sept 18th, I am now delayed for 5 days. I had my PT last Oct 17 and it was negative. I don’t really have a normal working hours, I changed Afternoon shift to graveyard shift every 2 weeks and was stress for the past one week because my bf broke up with me. Also I took the test in the afternoon, since I came from a graveyard shift I sleep all day. Now, I’m having the PMS syndrome and very gassy. Can you please help me, I always wanted to be pregnant. But I don’t want to put my hopes up since it will be very heartbreaking. Thank you in advance!

I’m 28. The last time I had my cycle was on June 23rd a few weeks after I got married and haven’t had it since. Not sure what is going on. My breast have been feeling like a needle is poking them every once in awhile. I’m not on any type of birth control and not using protection either. Started a waitressing job towards the end of July. I took at least 3 pregnancy test and all came up negative. Need help trying to figure this out.

I am sorry to hear about all your ectopic and tubal pregnancies. I would highly recommend that you go see your doctor and get a blood pregnancy test. If your period has not been a day late, I would go get a blood pregnancy test just to be sure that you aren’t pregnant.

or so. I have taken two hpt..about a week apart, and both negative. I’m not
really sure what to think…but I think I might be looking too far into it. In two days
it will be one year since my fiance and I miscarried at about 8 weeks. I don’t have the
best eating habits and I am a little oberwhelmed at work, but I have never been one
to let it bother me too much. I have never been to emotional with the exception
of my miscarriage a year ago.I’m not sure wha I would prefer the outcome
to be, but I would like to know that way I can begin planning and making better
lifestlye decisions.
Thanks in advance!

Hi, my name is Tiffany. I have two kids under the age of 3. My Husband and I are worried as I’m two weeks late for my periods and breasts are fuller. Three HPT’s and all negative! My best guess would be to see my G.P\DR but I’m anxious as to what advice I can get NOW! I’ve been having discharge lately. A couple of days ago it was thick and white with odor and from yesterday its now clear\yellow with no odor. I’ve been getting light cramps but nothing still. I usually get my periods on the 27-29th every month. It’s now the 16th and I’m worried. With my two pregnancies, a positive showed straight away! I’m not sure what else could be happening with my body. I also have light blue veins on one of my breasts but why the 3 negative home pregnancy tests?? Should I wait another week before taking another HPT?
Advice appreciated. Thanks a lot!

Hello
I just got off birth control 4 months ago. I was supposed to start my period yesterday on the 27th and it never came. My bf and I always use protection but 3 days before since I believed i was supposed to start my period we didnt use any but used the pull out method. I took a home pregnancy test and its negative however I know those can be inaccurate and may be too soon, but did it for peace of mind. My past three periods have come early from 3 to 5 days before it should normally if I was a 28 day cycle. I have cramps and had some brown spotting and a tiny bit of blood but nothing more and am clear today. Could it be because my body is still adjusting from being off birth control?? Or could i be pregnant??

I had protected sex on October 28th and the condom broke before he came so we just stopped and I thought everything was fine. The last time I got my period was the very beginning of October and I was supposed to get it November 6-7th and I’m very nervous. I’ve always had a regular period. I have some stresses but I don’t know if it’s enough to delay my period. I’m so nervous please help. I’m a pretty healthy weight as well and exercise frequently

Hi,

I have had irregular periods for over a year now. It is to the point that I have one every other month. I saw the gynocologist last December and she didn’t seem very concerned. I began taking birth control pills and took them for 6 months. I have been on the pill before and my body just does not react well to it. I develop depression, weight gain, breakouts, fatigue, mood swings, and can tell a difference right away when I come off of the pill.

Since being off the pill, I have gone back to my “every other month” cycle. I tend to have one at the beginning of one month, skip the next month, and then start at the end of the next. It is frustrating, but I just got used to it.

I am about 63-70 days “late”. I took a at home pregnancy test and it came back negative. I will see a doctor in November but just so concerened that something is wrong!

Anyone have the same circumstance? Any advice?

Thank you!

i just recently returned from a 24 hour drive from Las Vegas back to Louisiana. I also recently began smokin marijuana maybe twice a week since july. I had a period in july that lasted its normal time of 7 days(im one of those people that have servere cramps every month for each period). for veags i left july 30th and returned on august 4th. In july my period started on july 9th, it was suppose to begin on four days later the next month as usual on august 13th. mi period is now 4 days late! i recall having unprotected sex the week before my period came in july. if i was pregnant y would i have a period last month and miss this month. therefore i would b 7 weeks pregnant…right? but i took a hpt and it came up negative and ive had no symptoms of pregnancy other than today i squezzed mi breast and a small amount of clear liquid type stuff came out…i really need answers if possible. can this be because im over stressing…can it be the marijuana…

I found out i was pregnant in the beginning of may ended up having an abortion at the end of may which i wish i never did. In july i took a test because i thought i was pregnant again even though i had been using protection. I took 3 test and it showed i was pregnant. my bf and i decided we were going to go through with it. We didn’t end up using protection because we figured i was prego so there was no need for protection so we ended up sleeping together 4 times with out protection and the 5th day i started bleeding,I went to the doc and come to figure out i was never pregnant i just had the hcg still from the last pregnancy. now im really not sure if i could be pregnant from having unprotected sex those few days even though i had my period right after. I was suppose to start my period 2 days ago and haven’t started and i feel sleepy and sick and moody and light headed at times and bloated but i keep getting negative test results …. I’m not sure what to think??? If i am pregnant or not and if i am im keeping the baby ill never do what i did last time im not strong enough for another abortion.

I will briefly explain my situation to you and am seeking your advice on whether you think I could be pregnant. I am not trying to conceive and pregnancy would be very much unplanned at the moment.
I am 23 and suffer with slight PCOS. My periods are normally regular but on a 6 week cycle. My last period was late June. I have had protected sex a few times in the last month, with the most recent time being 5 days ago. The last 3/4 days I have started having cramps and breast tenderness- the usual signs of my period coming. I am technically only a week or two late from when my period would probably normally arrive, but I am really really concerned that I might be pregnant. I have taken 2 HPTs and both have been negative. I am booked in for a Blood test tomorrow, however the main reason for my concern is that I am worried the sex I had five days ago may have made me pregnant and therefore my period feels like its coming but actually cant because Im pregnant. HELP!! Do you think I am pregnant and will it show up on BT from 5 days ago?

Thanks!

Reply

96 DP Nguyen August 5, 2012 at 11:55 am

It’s not normal for you to have a period only twice a year. It’s possible that you’re not ovulating and that your ovaries aren’t releasing eggs (or you may have a lower quantity of eggs as most women do). It’s probably more difficult for you to get pregnant… So I really think you should go see a gynecologist to talk about your history of irregular periods, and to see if there’s anything he can do to stimulate your ovaries to release eggs. Fertility drugs can sometimes help. Good luck!

Hi, I’m 17 and had protected sex a few days before I went to California. I was supposed to start on July 18 but I never did. I am now home and I heard traveling can mess up your cycle. I took 3 tests and they were all negative & I have had no pregnancy symptoms. I have been breaking out which is normal before my period. Should I be worried?

Reply

98 DP Nguyen August 5, 2012 at 11:58 am

No, I wouldn’t be worried. Traveling , especially when you go across different time zones, can mess up your rhythm and your cycle. So I wouldn’t worry too much. I am sure that your period is just late this month. Good luck.

Hopefully someone can help. My last period was June 6-9th. Based on my previous cycles I ovulated somewhere around June 23-28. I has sex(unprotected) from June 21-28. My periods are always regular. Always the same flow ect. I had what I believe was implantation bleeding June 26/27. Very light (only when I wiped) pink discharge. Not enough for anything close to a start of a period of anything. No period in July at all. My breasts are tender. I’m experiencing “morning sickness” (different times of the day). I’m irritable and emotional. Certain foods(life tuna and other fish) make me instantly sick. And I have some light on/off cramps and lower back pain. I went to the doctors on the 17th. In office urine test came up negative. Went for blood work on the 18th, results on the 19th. Negative. (she only did the positive/negative one not the one that shows the exact hcg level amount). she told me I sound pregnant. But the tests are both negative. I feel pregnant.

She wanted to give me something to start my periods but without knowing 100% I can’t personally take something that if I’m pregnant will harm my baby. She told me to call her this week of I don’t start my period. I was planning on taking an at home pregnancy test Friday morning and go from there. Or should I ask for an ultrasound?

I need to know. :/ any ideas or suggestions? It would be greatly appreciated.

I’ve had Endometridsis and Fibroid tumors. In my 20′s I had to have a Myomectomy. I can’t remember once in my life to ever having a “normal” cycle.
In my 20′s I did ger pregnant. I was young and decided not to have the baby and I had an abortion. Life carried on with the bad periods. I ended up pregnant again with I was 39. Turned out it was an Etopic Pregnancy. I lost the baby along with my left ovary and tube. I now almost 44yrs old and almost a month late. I’m NEVER late. I took 2 pregnanct test both have said negative. Could someone help me out? Just wanted to ask before I actually go to the doctor. Kinda wanna know a little before I go. A baby would be soo welcomed. My hisband and I arent getting younger and we are childless. Please clue me in because I am clueless.

Sore breasts, cramping are signs of early pregnancy. I would go get another pregnancy blood test to see if you are pregnant. If you are NEVER late, then I am guessing that you are indeed pregnant. But go to a doctor and get it confirmed. Good luck!

I have been under a lot of stress with work and what my boyfriend has been in trouble with and I dont drink water very often usually sticking with Dr.Pepper. I work at dinner time a lot so I eat a lot of taco bell and take out rather than other more healthy choices. I’ve been experiencing a lot of acid re-flux and slight cramping. I don’t think I’m pregnant and have never been regular but the fear is still causing more stress, so I don’t have any idea what’s going on.

I’m torn between wanting to try again asap and waiting and hoping til this “pregnancy(?)” pulls through… =(

If you are only a few days late, I wouldn’t worry too much. But keep an eye out for your period, and re-test in another week. Good luck

I’m 24 years old and have been on the pill since I was 15 (Alesse 21). In March, my fiance and I decided we were going to start trying for a baby. I finished my last pack March 4th and got my period from March 7th-12th. Then in April I was about five days late, I figured this was normal but I decided to take a test just to be sure. I ended up getting my period from April 9th-12th and it was heavy for two days then very light. I was fine for the 13th and 14th then on the 15th and 16th I experienced some very light spotting. I assumed this was normal as my body was starting to readjust itself. Around the 18th I was put on Ciprofloxacin 500mg twice a day for a kidney infection. During this time (can’t remember the exact day) I experienced some light spotting again. Once again, I figured this was normal due to being on the pill for so long. My period should’ve come by May 7th (I counted out the days from my last period in April). My period didn’t come to I waited an entire week before taking a test. I took the test on May 13th and it was negative, however; it’s been four days and I still have no period. I’ve had periodotic cramping on and off since the beginning of May. I’m making an appointment for next week with my doctor, but I just was hopin for some advice beforehand. Thanks!

Hi, I’m 17 years old and just had sex over a week ago, after not being sexually active for 5 months. I have irregular periods, and have been contemplating whether to tell my mom that I want to go in birth control to regulate it. We had protected sex, and he didn’t finish inside. It’s been over 30 says since I last had my period, and I’ve been stressed/anxious because of this whole situation. What could it be? What should I do?

hi, I am 19, I am 4 days late and the only time I have been late was the two time I was prego. My husband and I have been trying for another one but have not been able to concieve. Do you think I could be prego or do you think it is from stress?

Val the depo provera causes weight gain in some women. When you stop taking the depo it takes 6 months to 1 year for the drug to fully clear out of your system, before some women see their periods again.

In your last pregnancy, it may have been that the levels of hCG that sustain the pregnancy were too low for a home pregnancy test to detect. some women, even ones who carry a baby to full-term, can experience this problem. Sometimes, even a blood pregnancy test says they aren’t pregnant, even when they are. Sometimes, ultrasounds are the only way to really diagnose pregnancy. So I would recommend that you go see a gynecologist, get a blood pregnancy test, and if you are still believing that you’re pregnant (you have the symptoms and such, and no period), then ask for them to do an ultrasound. Good luck.

I had my period on November 22th, 2011. December I didn’t have one. In January, my period started. This is the 2nd time this has happened. My fiance and I are trying to have a baby, but it just won’t happen. Could someone please tell me why I’m not becoming pregnant. We’ve been tracking my ovulation dates and making sure we are having sex on those days. I just had a baby 2 years old ago, and my fiance got someone pregnant 2 years ago, but she had an abortion. We just want to have a baby and everytime we think we are expecting, I always start a month later!

I would go see your doctor to figure out what is causing your pain. Sometimes, your period can be late, if you’re having a health issue or an illness of some kind. So, I would highly recommend that you go see a healthcare provider to figure out what’s going on with your body. Good luck.

Learning how early can you test for pregnancy may not occur for less than two weeks. But the latest pregnancy tests manufacturers say that it can detect pregnancy for as early as seven days after ovulation.
