Delayed periods, mild cramps, pregnancy test negative, trying to concieve. Any advice?

Hi Dr. My period is 9 days late. Took a pregnancy test 3 day before and another a while ago but both came back negative. Have been trying to get pregnant for the past 4 months. This time it s rather weird as my period has never been this late before. I went for a short holiday during my ovulation cycle, don t know if this has an impact. Have slight cramping and a couple of small pimples now. Please advise what do I do. Tks heaps.

Hello, I would be happy to help you with your question.

I would not have expected the first test to be positive, but the fact that the second test is negative suggests that you are not pregnant. In most cases such as this, there has been some delay in ovulation in the prior cycle. This can in some cases be related to stress on your system which, in your case, might have been related to your travel / holiday.

In any case, if you do not get your period this week, I would schedule a visit with your doctor and have a blood test performed just to be sure that you are not pregnant. At that time, you can also discuss other labs related to non-ovulatory cycles and review your attempts at conception.

I really wish you the best of luck!
