Two missed periods, negative pregnancy test, but pregnant like symptoms.

I am only twenty one but I am thinking maybe I have an hormone imbalance? My periods are very regular and I have not had my period now for a few months. I have taken numerous pregnancy tests and all have come out negative. I do have pregnant like symptoms though such as weight gain, fatigue and headaches. I also have been extremely bloated recently and have been spotting. I was thinking maybe some of these are a sign of hormone imbalance...I generally eat pretty well and I try to get out and excersize regularly. I have had some mood swings and just over all feel like I am pms sing the whole past month and I have had an increase in my appetite ( I ussually eat small portions and find my self hungry way more often now though). Also I was very happy for about a month and recently am just neutral but that might have something to do with the fatigue I am experiencing now. Any ideas what could be wrong with me? I am sick of feeling like my period is going to happen every day and never having it actually happen!

Thank You in Advance.

Hi Anonymous,

It is a good thing to see your physician as your symptoms could be many different things. Could you kindly keep us updated what he/she says? It will certainly help other women.

I wrote the earlier comment about 2 missed periods whilst on bcontrol and negative pregnancy tests. I went to my gp and she booked me in for a pelvic scan where the nurse said everything looked fine and there were no visible signs as to why my period hadn come. my period came about 2weeks after the scan so around 3months late in total. I still don't know why, maybe from stress.

I am in the same situation myself, I'm 34 and it's been 45 days since my last AF. I took 2 different HPT's yesterday and they both came out negative. I have been having cramps off and on for over a week or two making me thing that AF is coming but nothing. The weird thing is that my stomach just feels different, like I'm really bloated or just had a big meal but I haven't. I have never been pregnant before so I don't know what the signs are and I have just been reading different forums trying to find out what is going on with me. I've also been reading that many women get a negative result on HPT but turn out that they are pregnant. I am going to make a dr's appt if I don't get AF by this coming Friday. But any help from out there I'd really appreciate it. I will keep you posted. Good luck to all of you!!!!

Hi, I am 6 days late. Last period was Aug 5-9 my cycle is usually 26 days exactly. I was scheduled to start my period on Aug. 31. I took a HPT on Sept 3rd and 4th both neg. I've been experiencing noticeable fatigue since about Aug. 30th, Headaches since Sept. 2, and was slightly nauseous last night and tonight. Any ideas? Is it possible that I could be getting a false negative at 6 days late?

Hi Anonymous

What did the directions on the HPT say about how long to wait before testing? Some tests suggest waiting until a week after a missed period.

It could be you are coming down with something, or if you had unprotected sex maybe you are pregnant. I suggest you make an appointment with your health care provider to see what it going on. That way you can have a blood test that will tell you for sure whether you are pregnant.

Good luck and thanks for writing.

its a pill where you take 21 then have a 7day rest in which you should have a period, but i haven't at all. I look a hpt about 2weeks after the first missed period then another after the second missed period and both were negative. i did take all the pills and didn't miss any. I just wondered how accurate pregnany tests are and/or what could explain why I have missed two periods? thanks for your help

HPT are about 99% accurate at detecting any "pregnancy hormones" in your body once you have missed a period.

There are many reasons a woman might miss a period, some related to excessive stress or weight changes; it hers due to medical conditions. Missing periods is common, but it is important to call your doctor after missing two periods, just to rule out medical conditions.

I am also in the same situation. I started a new
BC pill 2months ago, took all the pills perfectly but since I started it and ended each packet I haven't had a period. I have taken two pregnancy tests and both hve come up negative. is there any chance I could still be pregnant??

Anon, I suggest you contact your prescribing provider to discuss whether this is expected or you are having a problem with the pills. If you have not missed any and did not have unprotected sex prior, it is unlikely that you are pregnant, especially with the negative tests. But if the pill you are on isn't one that is supposed to prevent periods, it makes sense to check in and make sure everything is okay.

Good luck.
