Thanks for posting your query.

The home pregnancy test kit those are available now a days are quite sensitive and pick up pregnancy as early as one day after missed period.

You have done it twice and they are negative, so I think pregnancy is almost out of question.

As you had some infection in uterus and taken medicines for it, both these things the drugs and disease it self can lead to delay in periods.

Please wait for couple of days and if you do not have periods then visit your doctor again and consult her. She will after examination and if needed with some reports like ultrasound will confirm the absence of pregnancy and then give some medicines to have withdrawal bleeding.

I hope this helps.

Please write again if you have something more to ask, in case of no further query please accept the answer.

Wishing you great health.

Good to hear from you again

The symptoms that you are having are non specific,they can occur even in the absence of pregnancy due to some hormonal variation also.

As you have started having brown discharge I think you should have bleeding in a day or two.
