I had my period last month, Dec 14. My boyfriend and I had sex Dec 31. So about the time I was supposed to ovulate. We are very careful and always use a condom, and always checking for leaks afterwards. On Jan 4, I have brown spotting (Implantation?). Expected period was Jan 13, (30 day cycle) but nothing came. On Jan 21 (8 days late), went to clinic to take pregnancy test. Came out negative. Today Jan 25. Still nothing! Why is it not here yet? I have no abnormal symptoms either. And not on any type of BC.
I have also read all the articles on this site that have to do with late periods.. but I also have been reading alot online, that there could be false negative results due to low hcg. Is that a possibility? If not, why is my period not here? Could having taken Plan B EC half a year ago be a factor?
I am really worried and scared. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks so much.
There's really no reason to suspect pregnancy given the pregnancy test was given at a point when your period was already late and was past two weeks after you had sex. As well - there's really no reason to check condoms for leaks, because when they break they tend to shred, so you'd know.
I know you said you were reading through articles on the site about late and missed periods, have you seen this one yet: MIA or Dude... Where's my Period?? It gives a lot of reasons for late and missed periods.
