No period - negative test

Hey all,
I need to know if its necessary to buy another test or not. I havent used protection at all for almost a year now (one partner) and never fell pregnant. I honestly feel like I have a bum ovary or my baby maker is inoperable or something. I am undergoing a lot of stress so much that i had another outbreak of shingles. Anywho, last August I had a lapo surgery for cysts on my ovary and a little bit of endo. Ever since tho, ive had periods like normal. My last period was October 8th. I should have definitely gotten my period by now...right??? Well I took a test on the 7th of November (a week ago) which came up negative. Last time I had intercourse was on the 2nd of November..(we broke up). So since I'm so late on my period, does anyone think I should test or just ride it out and that its right around the corner? Could I really be pregnant NOW, after all this? How much stress can delay a period this much?

The test on 7 November was too close to 2 November to pick up any possible pregnancy from that sex.

For an accurate test you should test again 7 days after your missed period. By that time the hormones are almost always enough to give a positive result (if you are pregnant). Make sure you use the first morning pee and follow the other instructions exactly.

It does however sound like you are under a lot of stress which is almost guaranteed to delay your period.

Best of luck!!

It doesn't sound like anything is wrong with you. It sounds like your period has possibly skipped a month. Since you are afraid it could be something more, call your doctor and put your mind at ease.

I am moody, headaches everyday, terrible terrible backache, my boobs and nipples are tender to the touch, tired all the time...and i know this sounds crazy but i keep getting what feels like muscle spasms in my stomache! maybe its from my surgery but its weirddddd!!!! How often does pt tests come up negative when in fact there is a pregnancy...just curious?

If taken correctly, and at the right time, pregnancy tests are seldom wrong.

Since you are so concerned, you should go see your doctor. S/he can tell you definitively if you are pregnant or not.

I believe you need to get your hormones checked. I missed my period and have all the symptoms that you have and found that I have very low progesterone. I am on supplemental progesterone cream to get things back to normal. Low progesterone can cause a woman to miscarry. Stress can cause your hormones to be out of balance so, I would deffinately have them checked through an endocrinologist.
