Negative HPT but ovary pain on both sides

User Profile
Hi I came off birth control pills (kariva28) the end of September/beginning of Oct. My first period (oct) was 28 days and was VERY light and only lasted for 2 days. My 2nd period (Nov) was about 30 days and the same, was VERY light and lasted 2 days. I didn't have a period for December and now JAN 6TH I still have not had a period. I tested for pg and came out negative but now Im experiencing ovary pain on both sides? Could I be pregnant? or is this just the birth control?

Welcome to ehealthforum,
If after coming off your birth control pill use, your periods had been regular, it would suggest return of fertility/ovulation, and if you had been sexually active around ovulation time, chances of pregnancy could be possible. Wait and watch for your next periods. Look out for development of any other new symptoms if pregnancy is suspected. If periods have not started within 10 days of expected period dates, or if you get abnormal periods, or if you suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Sometimes you can keep getting false negative results with urine pregnancy test kits during early pregnancy as the kits are calibrated ones, so unless the hormone levels in urine reach a certain level, they do not show positive results. Urine pregnancy test kits usually start showing positive results after about 18-20 days post-conception (roughly corresponding to about 1 week after your missed/altered periods). The test should always be done on early morning first urine sample to get accurate results (pregnancy hormone HCG is believed to be in highest concentration in this sample, and you should avoid lot of fluid intake and caffeinated beverages in the night before taking the test). Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
