I'm 19. Haven't had a period in 3 months taken a lot of pregnancy tests and all have been negative. I'm gaining odd weight around my stomach that my husband pointed out the other day made it look like i was pregnant and it freaked him out cause of the whole no period thing. My boobs have been tender I cant lay on my stomach because of them some nights, i'm more tired then usual.

I have no insurance, or an ID so I cant go to a doctor or free clinic (i'm working on getting an id but it could be another couple weeks before I have it and i'm just wanting some insight)

Is it possible i'm pregnant even though tests are negative? and should i start taking care of my body better until I see a doctor (only bad habit I have is smoking cigs and not getting a good amount of vitamins.)

You have not had a period for 3 months.
Have taken tests, and have come back negative.
You have no ID or insurance..
Try another test, are you taking it with your first morning urine?
Stop smoking, because it sounds like you could indeed be pregnant.
I was going to say go to a doctor, but get your ID first and head right to a doctors office.
Take materna for now just incase you are pregnant, its vitamins for the baby.

I have heard the pregnancy tests are very accurate, but it sounds as though you could be pregnant. Either way, no period for 3 months, you need to see a doctor. Good Luck - Hope the ID comes soon!

I know there are some free clinics that don't ask for ID, at least in the city here (I just read a book about street kids in NYC and they talked about how they never had ID cards and lost it along the way but there were free clinics who would take them in and youth centers with doctors that would check them out).

Maybe your area has a clinic like that?

If not, I would get your ID right away. If you have had an ID card in the past, go to your DMV and tell them you lost it. They'll print you out a new one that day.

Also, if you go to a doctor and explain you don't have an ID card but you have another form of ID such as a birth certificate or SS card, he may take you.

I'm not sure if you are pregnant or not, but either way you should probably see a doctor because not having a period for 3 months could be a sign of another problem if you aren't pregnant.

Good luck!

Pregnancy tests can be false negative or positive, which is why going to the doctors to get a blood test done would be in her best intrest, although she has to wait for her ID to come in...
Meklia, does your husband have health insurance? Could you not go to the doctor with his insurance if you are a married couple...like work health benefits or something like that...Could you not just try going down to a clinic and explaining your situation to a nurse or doctor?

I saw a doctor last night.

On another fourm (i cross posted to get more info and such) they recomened going to the ER and explaining that i thought i may be pregnant. They did a urine test it was negative. They refused to do a blood test for whatever reason. Found out I have a really bad Urinary tract infection, and i asked if that could affect my period and I was told it couldnt. So now i'm left wondering whats wrong with me.. I've got a free appointment with a family practioner (by law they have to see you at least once for follow up) and i'll sk about it then and see what they think may be wrong.

What reason did they give you?
Go back and demand a blood test, because you need to know.
That is ridiculious. If i were you, i would have been like, well what am i suppose to do? I could be pregnant, and your not even going to tell me?
UTI [urinary tract infection] my doctor told me is common while pregnant and as long as its treated has no effect on the baby. If not treated you could go into early labour.

Well, if they don't think your pregnant they're probably right. - Did they explain why you were missing your periods? Were you trying to get pregnant? Were you using any protection? If so then I would def get a second opinion at the follow up appointment with the family practioner Smile Good luck! Smile

It just seems odd though, i mean before i had my family doctor i went to a walk in clinic, i had taken a pregnancy test the night before [i was 5 days late] and it came out positive, so i went to make sure i was 100% pregnant from a doctor with my sister inlaw.
They first, did a urine test, and it wasn't reading right away.
Then, they did a blood test right after.
Why wouldn't the ER do this for her too?

The ER wont normally do a blood pregnancy test to confirm a pregnancy if she doesn't have a positive urine test, or has not had a positive home test. Because they would be doing them all the time. They will normally only do a blood pregnancy test if you had a positive home test and begin bleeding.


You probably have a cyst. Cysts can (and will) delay your period. They also produce some of the same hormones (progesterone) that cause pregnancy symptoms.

The only way to treat them is with birth control. So, your doctor will probably order a transvaginal ultrasound to confirm a cyst. Then prescribe you the pill.

Were you trying to get pregnant? If so, there may be other options then the pill. PM me and I'll explain things further, if you would like.
