I have missed mine as well. I have not had a cycle since july 31 and have to yet receive one. My test are coming back negative as well. I'm waitng on some blood work to come back. There is not that much stress to make me miss so many periods. The only answer that my doctor came up with was stress. When she did an ultra-sound they could not determine whether or not it was an egg yoke or a cyst. So, they drew blood to confirm what it could be. Fingers crossed that I am pregnant. I have a 6year old now and my boyfriend and I have been trying for the last three years to have a child. He does not have any kids. My daughter is my third pregnancy. I thought that I was the only person in this situation.

The human body is a funny thing. I havent missed any periods and have always had very regular periods but when I am trying consciously to get pregnant I think I convince myself that im pregnant and make my period late. Even though you dont "feel" stressed, I think trying to get pregnant itself has a stress like affect. Im no dr though, I think if I missed 3 periods I would definitely want to know why and be hounding my doc!

It Finally Came
After not having a period for a couple of months, I finally got it. So, I was not pregnant. But since then my doctor has started me on clomid. My fiance' and I have worked out a schedule to have intercourse around his job schedule. I am very excited and pray that finally we get pregnant. I already have a child, but my boyfriend does not. But, back to your reply. I do believe that I sike myself into thinking that I am pregnant as well.

Good Luck
It's something else when you want to have a baby and it does not seem to be happening. But I am going to really enjoy all the practice of trying. My fiance' is gong to get himself tested to make sure that all is well with him as well as with me.



Good luck to you[/quote]

Getting Antsy
My period is 5 days late-still waiting to test. I know I can now but I am not sure if I might still get it.
Good luck to you. I agree part of the fun is trying!!

The same thing happened to my cousin. She was three months pregnant but the home tests kept coming out negative. She found out when she got a blood test from the hospital. Sometimes home tests are not accurate, so I suggest to get a blood test instead.

Let Me Know
How well do you all think that the ovulations kits work? My doctor suggested that we try the ovulation or have intercourse every other day. But what do you think about the kits

Me Too... Plus An Inquiry
I also had the same problem just last year, my husband went to work abroad april so I decided to stop my pill. My period came end of april but missed it for 4 months. I consulted my ob and gave me medication to balance my hormones (i forgot the name of the medicine) truly enough, my period came a week later and stopped again for 2 months. My doctor told me that this was bec I stopped my pill.Then after that I had a half year of regular period. Now, we are trying to have another child (since june!) and we still have no luck. I had some delays but for the past two months my period came a month plus 18 days cycle. I had my last period last oct 6 and had a day spotting last oct17, what could this be? Thanks and greetings to all

Stress
The only thing that my ob-gyn could tell me about not having my cycle was stress. We all have to be under some serious stress to not have a period for a long time. I guess we all want to have a baby so bad that this is the cause behind our stress. But, good luck to all and wish you all the best on trying to have a baby. But can one of you all answer my question about how well does the home ovulation kits work.

A hpt is sometimes no substitute for a woman's intuition. If you're worried get a blood test. They test for a quantitive amount of hcg which tells them exactly how much growth hormone is in your system. It's 100% accurate especially at your late stage. If that is negative the doctor can give you (i wanna say progesterone tablets...) anyway something that can kickstart your af so you're free to try again as you please. Good luck!
