Hello, so it's march 20 and I haven't gotten my period since the beginning of november. I am 19 years old and newly married, my husband is currently on deployment, so the last time I had unprotected sex was November 28th. I have a past of irregular periods that started to become normal last year. The beginning of December when I should have started my period I just had brown discharge, same with January and February but now i'm 20 days late on my period I haven't had any sort of discharge except one day I had clearish white discharge. i've also have had every sign of pregnancy, i'd wake up nauseous and be very nauseous after I ate, sometimes wake up in the middle of the night running to the bathroom, my breast were sore, I still get killer headaches, cramping, FATIGUE, light headed, my stomach is actually poking out a little more than it used to, I've also felt a flutter and "kicks" especially in my sleep. I still get nauseous but not as bad and I have cravings that if I don't satisfy I'd need to throw up. I am not an emotional person at all! But I've been super moody lately. I have not been too stressed lately even with my husband being gone and I eat pretty healthy. I wasn't planning on getting pregnant until after he comes home from deployment, so he could be here through everything. I would be 16 weeks now, I've taken multiple pregnancy test all came back negitive. I had two blood tests done one came back negative the other came back with a high count but not high enough to say if I was pregnant or not. I read about how birth control can mess up your hormones if you were on it long enough ( I was on it for 4 years) and it can delay a positive reading on a pregnancy test. So if anyone can help id appreciate it!!
Chances of you being at 16 weeks pregnant and still having negative pregnancy tests is very less likely.
Other common causes for a missed or irregular cycles can be - Severe stress and anxiety, acute weight changes, eating disorders (Bulemia), Athletes (Rigorous exercise), conditions like ovarian cysts (with irregular cycles) and hypothyroidism.
In case, you have not had proper periods since november, then you will need to consult with your OBGYN doctor and a ultrasound can be done to confirm your status. The same test can also rule out other possible causes of irregular cycles. A few blood tests can be done to check for thyroid disorders.
Oral contraceptives or Hormonal implants used years back, cannot affect your pregnancy tests done now.
