Teenager. Delayed, very dark and blotchy periods. What could be the problem?

Hello, I am 18 yrs old and my period was 11 days late. I took a pregnancy test between this time and it came up negative. When my period finally started on the 11th day it was really dark and blotchy. I am wondering what is wrong? What could be the problem? I have scheduled an appointment with my doctor but i at least want an idea of whats going before i go.

Hi dear user, thanks for asking to us.

Urine pregnancy test can be negative in very early stages of pregnancy. First of all you should get your blood beta HCG levels and USG of uterus to rule out pregnancy.

Hope this helps.
