Here is my problem I have not had a cycle since July 22, 2009. I was on birth control but got off the pill in August because thought I was pregnant. So I have not been on the pill for about two months now. I still have not had a cylce yet. I have two several HPT and they all came out negative. I have even had a blood test done. But I feel like maybe I am, I have tender breast, fatigue, but I feel like I am losing my mind because the test are telling me one thing and my body is telling me another. Which one shall I listen to my body or the test. Please help if I am pregnant it will be a great thing.

Well, to answer some of your question I am 32yrs old.I have my regular annual check up next month. I have never had an irregular cycle. It has always been on time every month. We have not been trying that long to conceive. As far as the blood test I went on Sept. 18, it was four days past my missed cycle for the month of Sept. I think I went to early because I heard you must wait from 7 to 10 days from when you think you conceived. So thats why I am still wondering could I be. With the month of August I think that it might have just been a fluke as to not getting my cycle. But not for the month of Sept, I have never missed to months in a row. But I am gonna see what next month brings if I am not pregnant then I will have my hormones checked because this has never happened to me before. So if you have any insight, I will gladly welcome it.

Your plan sounds like the best option. It is strange to miss two periods in a row, but also strange to have two negative pregnancy tests at home plus a negative pregnancy test at the doctor's office...and a blood test at that.

I can understand that you are still wondering what is going on...are you pregnant and it is not showing up on the tests for some reason, or is there something going on with your hormones that are causing missed periods. It could be anyone's guess at this point, and since you are seeing your doctor next month, that is the best plan to check with your doctor. You also have the option (and I would recommend) to call your doctor, and let them know that your regularly-scheduled annual check-up is actually no longer just a "check up", but that you are having symptoms. They will want to know what symptoms you are having (missed periods, negative tests, tender breasts, etc) and they may want to re-schedule your appointment. So...the short version is: my "insight" would be to call your doctor to see if they want to re-schedule your appointment, based on your symptoms and not just your annual check-up.

Please let us know your results!

The blood test you had done to check for pregnancy, how long ago was this? Did you go to a clinic, or to your regular doctor?

Does your GYN know that you have not had a period since July? If you have had a medical appointment with your doctor, what information were you given? (It can be common for women to have irregular cycles, even to miss a period. Depending on your age and medical history, your doctor may want to see you to rule out any medical condition). If you have not had a medical appointment with your GYN, please call to be seen.

I understand your frustration and confusion, as we were trying for the longest time to conceive, too. Every woman is different, and there are always exceptions to the rule. It is impossible for us to say definitively over internet what your situation is, but I just do now see how you could be pregnant. Your symptoms of breast tenderness and fatigue can be related to many, many things...and there can be hormonal reasons for these symptoms and the loss of menses (missed periods). Have you had your hormone levels checked?

How long have you been trying to conceive? I know that when you are actively trying, every symptoms seems like it is indicating a pregnancy...especially when they are related to hormones and your MAIN symptoms...lack of period....would be indicators of pregnancy. However, with the multiple tests AND a blood test....I just do not see how this would be possible. An ultrasound can confirm/deny a pregnancy, if you need to "see" for yourself (I am not sure if a doctor would even do this, once a blood test has confirmed that you are not pregnant). I just wanted to tell you about this as a possibility, as there are many TV shows on where women were "surprised" that they didn't know they were pregnant as they were giving birth. If you are receiving medical care on an annual basis, having lab tests done...you are not going to miss anything.

We would always tell women to "listen to your body", but the mind is also a powerful tool here. You are wanting a baby, and it is emotionally draining to go on the roller coaster month to month of wondering...I know. It is tough. Wanting something so bad where you feel the symptoms is extremely common. And, you may actually have the symptoms of tender breasts and fatigue, but again, these are indicative of any hormonal fluctuations in your body...the same fluctuations that women have throughout their cycles (pregnant or not).

Please call your doctor for a medical appointment regarding your lack of periods, and if you have already been seen..please tell us what information you were given, as well as how long you have been trying to conceive (how old are you, by the way?).
