Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The urine pregnancy test (UPT) kits are calibrated ones, so unless the hormone levels in urine reach a certain level, they do not show positive results. They can also show false negative results during early pregnancy. Blood/serum HCG level estimation is accurate. UPT should always be done on early morning first urine sample as the concentration of pregnancy hormone HCG is believed to be highest in this sample.
If you suspect to be pregnant, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for further examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet.
If pregnancy gets ruled out, further investigations should be done to rule out causes for secondary amenorrhea, hormonal derangement, ovarian failure etc. treatment as appropriate would be started to help you get back your periods and regulate them.
Take care.

Hey I'm going through something similar. I'm on my 59 cycle day, and I'm 33 days late on my period. My cycle is usually 26-27 days. I had my last period on March 5-10th, and nothing in April. Now today's May 2, and my second period was due 3 days ago. I have been taking home pregnancy tests, and they were NEGATIVE. I even went to the doctor(25 days late), and my blood test was also negative. They took more blood to check up on my thyroid, and other abnormalities in my blood, but everything came out perfect.

I been having back pains, my pelvis is swollen, I have morning sickness badly, I'm peeing like crazy... So I'm going crazy here not knowing what's going on!!! Help!!!
