41 days since AF
12
Wed, 11-23-2011 - 8:27am

Hello all.

It's been 41 days since the start of my last AF, which was on Oct. 13th. I normally have a 5 week cycle, however sometimes I will have a 6 week one. I took a test today and it was clearly negative. I took the Answer Early brand. I only had sex 2 times since my last AF, which were on the 7th and the 12th of November. Protection was used, so I don't see how I could be pregnant, but I don't feel like

Having a test come up positive just depends on how much HCG is in your urine. I've known women who didn't get a positive pregnancy test until a month later. If you test again in a few days and it's still negative, you can ask your doctor for a blood test.

Good luck!

I still haven't got af, I haven't retested either. I will probably test tomorrow morning if I go buy some more tests. I just hate buying pregnancy tests...it's so awkward. I will update once I figure out what's going on.

Tested this morning with a FRER and it was negative. I guess my cycle is just really screwed up.

I'm sorry you still don't know what's going on. Have you considered making a doctor's appointment to talk to your doctor about the long cycles? Just out of curiosity, how old are you?

I'm 29. I have two kids, I had a miscarriage at 7 weeks about 2 years ago, they said my progesterone was low. I'm not sure if they meant just for that pregnancy or if i'll have problems in the future with that too. I'm due for my yearly anyways, so I suppose I'll make an appt., & ask about this long cycle. For the past week I've been really dizzy, feeling like I'm going to pass out. Plus lots of cramps in my pelvic area, not just on one side or another, but all over. I keep thinking af is about to start & I'll go check & nothing. I'm wondering if I have pcos.

Just a quick update. Af is still mia. I took a test a couple days ago..not an early test brand tho...it was negative. It's now been 51 days since af. I can't go for my annual until the 4th of january. I'm really annoyed. Not sure what to do next.

I'm sorry your cycle is still messed up. I hope this next month goes by quickly for you and your doctor has some answers for you.

Tested again today with frer...negative. It's now been over 8 weeks since last af. is it possible to be pregnant & still be getting negative tests? The last time we dtd was on the 20th of Nov. I noticed ewcm on the 27th...so af is probably right around the corner..but I was just curious if I should count the tests as they are (neg). I can't seem to find much online about negative tests after a very late af. Thanks for your input!

Go see a doctor and request a blood test. Some women do continue to get negative tests for a bit during the beginning of pregnancy. You should also see your doctor since you've now missed 2 periods. They can check your hormone levels to see if something else is going on. Good luck!
