I have had 4 missed periods now. I have had multiple negative pregnancy tests, but still no period. I am worried that I waited too long to test, is 3 months in too late to test?

Pregnancy tests work by measuring the level of a specific hormone, hCG, that is present during pregnancy. You cannot be pregnant without having that hormone present, and in fact the levels increase steadily for several months, so while you can test too early for pregnancy, you can't test too late.
In an earlier thread, you said you had a gynecologist appointment lined up. I think it's best to just wait this out until you can get in to see what's up with your missed periods. Can you give the office a call to see if they can get you in for an earlier appointment, or put you on a cancellation list in case something comes up on short notice?
