User :   hello
Doctor :   Hi
User :   Hi, I am late on my period this month. Last time was september 10 and for the last few months I've been right on target. Not late or nothing. Today is October 19 and still nothing. I feel gassy, light headed, cramping. I took a home pregnancy test yesterday and today and shows negative. I algo got yeast infection which i haven't gotten since my first pregnancy. I am not stress...i've been eating like i normally do and exercise like i normally do. I don't know why my period is so late and yet pregnancy test shows a negative response. what can it be?
Doctor :   The infection could have made a change.
Doctor :   Did you have unprotected sex on your ovulation date?/
User :   I have unprotected sex about 5 weeks ago and i thing it was around ovulation but he pulled right before he came.
Doctor :   Did you use an early morning sample of urine?

Doctor :   you may not be producing enough hormones necessary to produce a positive Urine Pregnancy test
User :   even though i just starting taking the antibiotics and i'm already 2 weeks late?
Doctor :   You can get a confirmatory Blood HCG test done
Doctor :   which is more sensitive
User :   i was thinking i can wait until after i'm done with the med and test again? would that make a difference?
