My period is now 10 days late. I had unprotected sex around my ovulation date, so pregnancy is extremely likely.

I've been having some pregnancy symptoms (sensitve/painful nipples, increased appettite, headaches, lower back pain, abdominal cramps etc), and I've now done 4 HPTs, one 2 days after my period was due, one 4 days, one 6 days and I did one this morning. All negative.

I spoke to my nurse 3 days ago and she said a large number of women don't show positive until 5-6 weeks into pregnancy, due to previously having low levels of the hCG hormone. Has anyone experienced this?

How late have other peoples periods been before? Mine are usually regular, around 28-30 days, (last period was December 20th)

If my period still hasn't come by Monday (2 weeks late), I'm going to see a Dr.

Is anyone else experiencing this? How late have your periods been? When did a pregnancy test show up positive for you? (e.g how long after missed period/ weeks into pregnancy?)

And discussion, or opinions would be helpful. Would help to ease the mind!!

Hello,

Welcome to ehealthforum

According to the symptoms you have described(sensitve/painful nipples, increased appettite, headaches, lower back pain, abdominal cramps) it seems that you are pregnant.Urine pregnany tests are not confirmatory as it determines the HCG level in urine which is very less during the initial stage.
Get a Blood HCG test done immediately which is a confirmatory test for pregnancy determination.Kindly visit a Gynaecologist soon for evaluation.

Take Care!

Go to a Planned Parenthood or free clinic and have a free pregnancy test done before your treatment. Or see your doctor.

No one can tell you if you're pregnant but a doctor. Get a quantitative blood test at your doctor's office to know for sure.

Also 10 days late and frustrated.
I am also experiencing cramping, on/off nausea, back ache, painful breasts, and am 10 days late. Only came off the nuvaring last month but am now about to have my 4th week of cramping, also had spotting a few days after "suspected" ovulation. had a blood pregnancy test at about 5 days late and it was negative.also did a HPT yesterday and negative. about to go back for my second blood test. Need some advice because this waiting is killing me.

If you are 10 days late you should have shown positive on an HPT by this point. Your body is most likely just adjusting to being off of the Nuvaring.

Yes I suspected that but even the doctor thought doing a blood test at 5 days late was too early? I'm so scared that my body isn't regulating properly! Will be 12 days late tomorrow and have ultrasound booked for Friday. I guess that will be the definitive answer regarding pregnancy! Hoping all you ladies are coping okay!

No, must have been my body regulating after coming off nuvaring Sad dr was 100% sure I wasn't pregnant so I drank some parsley tea at 14 days late and low and behold I got my period the very next day. Trying again this month. Cramping again but no where near as bad, hoping I'm back to normal and actually ovulating. Good luck to you all!

Hey, interested to see how everyone is going? I actually feel on the brink of insanity its ridiculous. AF due tomorrow and its just a waiting game now. Would love to talk to some other women out there though because this process is hard on your own and cant always talk to your partner as they dont understand the psychological torment haha. replies pleaasseeee x

Advice
Hi there, I am ten days late for my period. I had a miscarriage in August of last year and I tested positive after 3 and a half weeks of pregnancy. I have taken 4 tests in the last week all are negative but I think I only conceived 17 days ago would it show up a positive test yet? Any advice would be good. I go on holiday in just over 3 weeks an I'd like to no before I go. Thanks Smile
