Am I pregnant or is something wrong? 14 days late but negative test

Hi so my cycle is usually 27 days, and pretty darn regular as well. Today I'm 14 days late, I tested a week ago and last night, both negative, but I've got tender breasts, headaches, nausea, bloating and I've been feeling off for a while now - not in a way I can really explain, apart from feeling strange. In a week and a half it'll be two periods that I've missed, what's going on?

Hello Amyhannahst,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community. I see from your profile that you will soon be turning 20 years old.

Let's look at possible reasons why your normally regular 27 day menstrual cycle has recently become irregular.

Pregnancy is the first reason that comes to mind. I must ask, have you had unprotected intercourse since your last period?

We cannot accept last night's test results as valid. For the most accurate result, you must test in the morning by using the first urine of the day. That urine is concentrated from being in your bladder overnight.

Hormonal imbalance is the next likely reason. The menstrual cycle is regulated by a very precise balance of hormones. Any upset will cause an irregularity, such as a missed period.

High stress levels , illness such as having the flu, extreme weight gain or weight loss, and excessive exercising are a few things that can lead to an imbalance.

Amyhannahst, if you are absolutely certain that you could not be pregnant, then I suggest you contact your gynecologist who can order blood tests to check hormone levels.
