I had my last period on 4-15-09 and it was normal. The next month I had kind of a spotty one. Nothing heavy. I have not had my period sonce then. I have taken home pregnancy test at least twice a month and they all come back negative. I do how ever have some cervical mucus.some probably every other day. I do not know what is going on. Please help if you can.

I'm going through something similar. I haven't had a period for 4, going on 5, cycles. I've taken several home pregnancy tests which all come up negative. If I were pregnant would I be showing by now?

I'm having a similar issue. I'm 5 months late. I have had negative blood work but 2 positive home pregnancy test. I've had morning sickness all day. I've had to go up two bra sizes. I'm sure bloated and my stomach is starting to get hard. I've had what could be movements but I'm not sure. I went to my OB and she wouldn't do any ultrasounds because my blood work came back negative. She suggested I take a medication that will force me to have a period. I know my body. Something isn't right. I don't want to take a medication that will cause me to have a miscarriage if I am in fact pregnant. I'm not stressed or anything. I've gained a little over 15 pounds. I feel like I'm going crazy.

Hi Anon

Please insist on seeing the doctor or another doctor. You need a proper evaluation. A scan is available in most doctors' clinics and they take just a few minutes. Insist on one - you have the right to do this.

Hi, my name is Ariel my husband and I been going to my doctors and I wanted to know why I haven't started my period for 5 months going on 6 months. My mom told me that when she was pregnant with my brother she didn't find out till the 3rd month. On my family side the latest they found out that there pregnant was in there 4th month. I never missed a period always have them every month. Doctors don't want to do blood work or an ultrasound or other test to find out what's going on . I noticed that my eating habits changed alot and I been sick here and there. I took 5 test and they say negative. What should I do?

Hello Ariel,

If indeed you were pregnant, you would be showing by now.

Why is the doctor refusing to order blood tests or ultrasound/
Maybe, it is time to find another gynecologist.

Hello Anonymous,

If you are younger than 50 years old and have been having unprotected intercourse, you need to take a home pregnancy test.
Test in the morning. Use the urine when you wake up and use the bathroom.

If you are in your 50s, this may be a sign of perimenopause. As hormone levels fluctuate, your periods become irregular. You can start missing periods as well.
