Question: My last period was 24 weeks ago, I've taken a home pregnancy test and had a negative result but have been getting aches and pains that I wouldn't link to my irregular cycle along with headaches and back pains. Is there a chance that I could be pregnant despite the negative result to a home pregnancy test?

Thanks for posting your query.
If the repeated home pregnancy tests are negative then pregnancy is ruled out. But since you didn't have any periods for last 24 weeks, it is best to get an ultrasound scan of abdomen done to detect any possible pathology.
Such a delay could be due to hormonal imbalance, emotional upset, anxiety, stress, or other medical conditions that affect the ovaries, uterus, hypothalamus, or pituitary gland. Hypothyroidism, post pill amennorhea , polycystic ovarian syndrome or less frequently a pituitary tumor causing high prolactin levels or a hypothalamic disease are other causes that may be the cause here.
Please visit your gynecologist to undergo physical check up and also to undergo relevant investigations required in your case to find out the cause so that treatment can be given accordingly.
Hope this answers your query. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.
Wishing you good health.

I have had 2ndary amenorrhea for about a year after having 1/2 of my pituitary removed (Cushing s disease). I am perfectly healthy now, and wondering what my chances of getting pregnant are. Am I right in thinking that my chances are extremely low until I get my hormones in order? What type of doctor should I seek out for help? An OBGYN or a reproductive endocrinologist?
