Obsessed with knowing if Im pregnant this month!

In the month of May I was diagnosed with PID, in which I treated and followed up with a normal pap in June. I have been trying to conceive for a year now and havent been successful. The doctor that viewed xrays of PID stated that he didnt believe it was bad enough that it would cause infirtility but could be possible. Anyhow, I'm usually 32 days most cycles, the most is 34 days, and they are pretty regular. My last period was June 26th, and was due for my next on July 28th which would make me now 6 days late. I have taken a HPT 7/29, and the Dr office did a urine test on 8/1, Both in which were NEGATIVE :( I have moderate cramping, headaches, nausea, neck/sholder pain, appitite increase, middle if night urination (which I never do), and bloating. With that said, my question is WHY is my period so late? Indeed I have been very anxious this month with hopes of pregnancy, so even if it is stress, what can I do to relax, so that my aunt will flow, and I will start fresh next month....Thank you for your time.

Did you know that PID or pelvic inflammatory disease is a serious complication of some sexually transmitted diseases, especially chlamydia and gonorrhea. PID can damage the fallopian tubes and tissues in and near the uterus and ovaries. PID can lead to serious consequences including infertility, ectopic pregnancy (a pregnancy in the fallopian tube or elsewhere outside of the womb), abscess formation, and chronic pelvic pain.That being said, your inability to get pregnant is something that you need to discuss with your doctor. Also, during your next appointment with your doctor, you need to tell him about the symptoms that you are having and report that your period is late.If you find it hard to wait until September to be seen, call the doctor's office and ask if you can be seen sooner.

Yes Nurse Gromisch, I have suffered from PID in May and have been treated. This was diagnosis from a ER visit when I admitted myself from the severe pain. The doctor was using a fear tactic with me to insure that I take all my medicine and I believe he stated that he didnt think that it would mean absolutly anymore children, however there was some scar tissue. But at the time I was unclear of any severe damages because I just wanted to hear I was okay. I did have a follow up pap in June and had a normal pap. I do occasionaly suffer from BV and this is what spun out of control to cause PID I believe. In June I had a somewhat normal timed period. I am currently have a menastration that is the late cycle and It's painful but not as much as when I had PID. Im wondering if there is anyway I can call the Doctor at the ER and get explaination of his findings from my CAT Scan. Thank you so much for recapping this information, because it has been on my mind in hopes that this would not effect my fertilit seriously.

Hi Allspice,
Stress can cause a delay in your period. It is easy to say "relax" but sometime is difficult to do. Do you do yoga or practice meditation?
This can help reduce stress. Try listening to soothing music, close your eyes and focus on pleasant things that you enjoy.

I do try to meditate and pray about my situation before bed. I do get a little emotional about getting older and not being able to concieve, I am 28 years old and I already have two children. I really would like to have my third and final child before I graduate college, to be able to go full force into my career when child is at an appropiate age for us. Also my close friend just had a baby, in which she was not trying for until I mentioned a year ago that I was and she was strict that she didnt want anymore. I dont know what to do at this point, I cannot get an appt. until next month, and while trying to ease my mind of the stress, my body is constantly cramping, head pounding, the works. Thank you for your response, I will keep trying to relax! :)
