HPT neg, but still no AF

41 TTC, Okay, so I take the test yesterday and its a day early and its negative. AF should be here today, but hasn't shown. I also took clomid this cycle and someone told me that clomid delays your AF due date (extends your cycles), is this true? I don't have sore boobs, but I feel nausted when I have an empty stomach, and feel bloated and kinda crampy but still no AF. I've been told by friends that the first HPT when your AF is due can come up negative, so I should wait a few days......this is driving me crazy. I have 2 teenagers, so you'd think I'd remember from way back when what being pregnant is like, but I don't - so this is like starting all over again. Anyway, all comments and suggestions are welcome!!

Okay, here is part two to my dilema. I went to the doctor and had a blood test and that was negative too, but I still don't have AF. I'm at least a week late, could the HPT and the blood tests be wrong or am I grasping at straws?? I've looked up someother boards and read about people who've had this same problem. Does the clomid really jack with your system that much? Help from anyone!!

Thanks Kellygirl

I did a number of clomid cycles and never experienced a delay with AF. If AF is a week late and your b/t came up negative then it is really unlikely you are pregnant. What was your FSH level on CD3 for this cycle? Have you been charting and did you confirm O? I am just wondering if it is possible that you are having an annovulatory cycle. When you had your b/t did your doctor tell you what your HCG level was? Did he check for any other hormone levels such as progesterone and/or FSH? If he did then he could tell what was happening this cycle and why it might be delayed.
