Thank you, I was 8.5 weeks and did not find out until a few days before i miscarried.
I just keep thinking there is something wrong with me, I will call the doctor if i have not had my period in a week. is there a possibility of pregnancy even with the negative tests.?
Thank you for your replies you have been a great comfort and help.

I'm not a doctor, so I can't say how likely it is you could be pregnant. However, home pregnancy tests are designed to detect hCG in your urine. If you are not producing much hCG yet, then it won't pick it up. That is why they recommend waiting until you are a week past your expected period date. Many pregnancy tests can still detect the hormone when you initially miss your period, but the levels may not be up enough at that time to give a strong or really accurate reading. The test you can get from your doctor is more accurate, along with ultrasound and detecting early pregnancy. I just had this conversation with my own OB/GYN last Friday, so it's fresh in my mind. I'm not sure how it will help in your waiting game, but I try and think that if the test is negative, then you're not pregnant. However, if you don't get it, there's nothing wrong with retesting. I know how the waiting game can mess with your head, especially if you're worried something else may be going on. I had my own doctor test my thyroid "just in case," because I had a miscarriage and couldn't bear to find out I had some undiagnosed condition that was causing me to miscarry. The doctor told me that having one miscarriage doesn't predispose you to having another, but it does make them want to watch you more closely to check viability if you do turn up pregnant. I'm sure your doctor told you that already.
Anyhow, glad you have found value here. Please continue to keep us posted.

I am not preventing pregnancy, I had an ultrasound four weeks ago due to a miscarriage back in april, all was fine my tubes and overies were clear also.
I am always on time never late, even when i was pregnant in April i did not miss a period.
what could it be if not pregnancy (i doubt im pregnant due to the negative tests,) I am not stressed no major changes my weight is the same. Im confused.

Hi Anonymous,
I too have experienced miscarriage. I am deeply sorry for your loss. If you don't mind me asking, how far along were you?
The major cause for missing a period is pregnancy, of course. Beyond that, reasons can be excessive exercise, sickness, medication conflict, and hormone imbalance, among other things.
Since you had a miscarriage and have been under the care of your doctor recently relating to that I think it would be a good idea to keep in close contact with them on this. If you go another week with no period, you may want to take another test or call the doctor to do the blood test. I hope you have good news soon.
Good luck, and keep us posted on what's going on.

Hi Anonymous,
Are you trying to get pregnant currently? It sure does sound like your period is late. Any big changes in your life recently, sickness in the past month, or excessive stress? Sore breasts can be a symptom of PMS. The pregnancy tests are negative. They are pretty accurate after a missed period--if you still are concerned you may be pregnant, request a blood test from the doctor to confirm pregnancy. There are a number of things that can make your period late, or skipped. If you go 90 days with no period, contact your doctor to get checked out. Also, if you experience other symptoms, and especially if you experience excessive cramping or pain, seek care from a doctor.
Good luck and let us know what happens. Your experience may help someone else with a similar experience.
