2 neg. preg. test and 2 days late on my period

I've had a very regular period. I've had to neg. preg. test (home tests) and I'm late! My hubby had a vasectomy in 2007 (successful). But instead of my period I'm having brown (medium) and brown (dark) discharge for about 2 days. Only when I wipe. I was put on a diet by the doc and I know the rate of possibility is .025% recotinzation (sp??) but I was wondering if the diet (I've lost 6 lbs in a couple of weeks) was a factor and or just plain old blood.

Hi again Anonymous,

Absence of your period is not that uncommon. There may be underlying issues as to why you are having a delayed period but I certainly would follow up with your physician. I know the delay in the ability to see your physician is painstaking but at this point, you have taken many pregnancy tests with negative results. This is a good sign and pregnancy tests today are 99 percent accurate.

Very simple things such as exercising, changes in diet or stress (for sure) can cause delays in periods. These are the simple things and very common. Even your fear of pregnancy enough would cause the stress for a delayed period. If you are not experiencing any pain, wait for your doctors appointment. If you experience pain, go to the emergency room to be checked for any additional vaginal issues that may be causing the delay.

Believe me that I understand that we want answers now for medical issues but in this case, it may not be that simple. You can also call your doctors office and request to be called if someone cancels in order to get in earlier. I hope this helps. Again, please keep us updated.

Best of luck,

Well.. I guess that was my period for the month of January.. My Doc. rescheduled the check up for the 6th of Feb. I started a NORMAL period on the 9th. I've had nothing but negative hpt. He did do a blood test to make sure, but after testing the hubby.. Its not likely. He had a zero count again.. So thank you for the much needed advice.. He was also very pleased with the diet progress and also contributed that to the short/odd cycle!

Hi Anonymous,

Thank you for your question and welcome to Empowher. Since pregnancy does not appear to be an issue, the cycle that you are experiencing certainly can be from the change of diet as any changes can cause our mentrual cycle to fluctuate. Exercise can also cause changes as well as stress and so on.


If you are not experiencing any pain, you should be safe. Wait for another cycle and see what happens. If you are having any issues associated with pain, seek a physicians help immediately.


Hope this helps answer your question.

Thank you for you help.. I just don't want another baby (money and medical reasons (c-section)). I've never not had my period except when I was pregnant. Hence why we decided that vasectomy was a better option with the cost and rehab time. As well as, the likely hood of having my tubes tied and not working. The stats are in our favor! I've taken one more test and still was negative. The only thing about waiting until next cycle is if I am.. There are very few options here (very conservative views around this area). Any other things I might be missing?? People say no to stress, but then you think about it more!! I can't get a doc appt. until mid February!
