Late periods, cramps, lower backaches. Pregnancy tests negative. Reason?

Hi I am 5 days late for my period. I m cramping everyday like I would if it was going to come. My lower back aches and I am so tired. I took 3 test and they all came up negative. That was 2 days ago and still no period but every sign of it coming. It s not normal for me. I only cramp like that on the day of if I even do. What could it be?

I suggest you to wait few more days to get your period naturally as you are getting premenstrual symptoms now.

Premenstrual cramp may vary from cycle to cycle. It can occur few days prior to onset of period or during commencement of cycle.

I suggest to undergo one Ultrasound scan to rule out underlying pathology if any like endometriosis, fibroid etc. Kindly, consult with gynecologist after that.

Good luck.

Can I be pregnant even though I took a pregnancy test and it was negative? My periods are pretty irregular but I think I m roughly 2 weeks late. I have been feeling sick in the mornings and night for about a week now, My boobs are really really sore and tender and I get sharp shooting pains and they have got a little bigger, I have headaches and stomach cramps and my stomach feels harder if that makes sense. I ve had little backache as well. I did a test today and it came back negative, is it possible that the test could be wrong, or its too early for me to do a test? It sounds stupid but this isn t my period coming I know how my body works and this is more than a late period. Im 18 and never been pregnant before so I m so confused.

I have been on Cerazette for 6 months now, without a period. I went to my doctor to get a repeat prescription of the contraceptive and she took my blood pressure - which was so high she nearly didn t give me the next few months worth. She did give me three months worth in the end but because of my high blood pressure (due to the stress we ve been under lately) the Dr said to use condoms as well because the effectiveness of the pill could be compromised. My partner and I have been using condoms since then - July 19th - until 2 weeks ago, when we had unprotected sex twice. The last fortnight I have had cramping in my lower abdomen, my breasts have been very tender (and have grown 2 inches in a month!), i have been having several nightmares a night, mood swings, frequent urination, hot flushes and bursting into tears for no real reason. I have taken a home pregnancy test which has shown negative, but feel the same way I did when pregnant with our daughter - now 23 months. Can Cerazette cause a false negative? And do you have any advice for me in regards to the accuracy of home pregnancy tests? Thank you x
