I forgot to add to this post that I spotted a drop of brown blood on day 3 of being 5 days late. Here is my post. This never has ahppened before I have 3 children with my oldest being 18 I am only 34 years old and I am married(sexual active): Please, Help! I was 5 days for my menstruation. I always start on day 28 always. I had a tubal in 1999, however I felt like I was impregnate. I went to the ER due to pain in my left side that wrapped around to my lower stomach. I mentioned that my cycle was late and I wanted a urine preg test, before having an MRI. The urine came back negative and I had a pelvic exam and MRI. After the MRI and pelvic exam 2 hours passed and I passed a bright red clot which led to my cycle beginning what could this mean. If I was indeed pregnate would the MRI showed my pregnacy? Can the MRI show your tubes and if they have came undone would they have seen this?

Welcome to ehealthforum.
It is common to have your periods 5-10 days late due to hormonal issues and stress. The urine pregnancy test can show false negative result, but if you were pregnant, the MRI scan would have picked up the pregnancy/gestation in the uterus or the tubes (if ectopic). The passing of the red clot and beginning of periods could have been due to removal of the cervical mucus plug during the pelvic examination.
Wait for your MRI test results and discuss with your gynecologist about the other underlying causes for being the reason for the pain.
Take care.
