Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Thank you for reaching out to us with your concern about a late period and negative pregnancy test.

Anonymous, are your menstrual cycle normally regular? How old are you?

If your periods are normally regular, you would have already ovulated by about 14 days, when you had sexual intercourse on September 17. A released mature egg can live about 12 to 24 hours.

If the home pregnancy test was not expired and you followed the directions carefully, using the first urine of the morning, we must accept the results were correct, and you are not pregnant.

You may be noticing the first sign of perimenopause. It is the time in a woman's reproductive life when estrogen levels fluctuate. Irregular periods are an early sign of this. Generally, women enter perimenopause in their 50s, but some begin in their late 30s.
