Question: missing period
|cjs_momma - Sat Oct 30, 2004 9:14 am|
This month my period is 11 days late i have taken several pregnancy tests and they all come back negative. I am very regular and have been off the pill for seven months. Could i be pregnant or could there be something else wrong.

Since you have taken several pregnancy tests it is unlikely you are pregnant. It is not uncommon to be late or even miss a period occasionally without something being wrong. Many things can contribute to late or missing periods such as excessive exercise, stress and even some herbal supplements. I wouldnt worry unless you are having pain or extreme cramps. If you do experience pain, especially on one side or the other of the abdomen or pelvic area then you need to be seen by the doctor to rule out an ectopic pregnancy which is a pregnancy that starts growing in the fallopian tube rathen than the uterus. However, that is uncommon and just being late for a period is not anything to worry about.
