Question: Missed symtoms of it coming?!

 Pen86 - Thu Mar 03, 2005 10:04 pm

Hey! Im 19, i am just curious..... My partner and i had been trying for a baby, this was our second month, the first month didn't work. My period for the last 3 months (since i have been recording it) has been an average 28 day cycle. I was due 4 days ago, on the first of March. I took a pregnancy test on Sunday the 27th of Feb. (it was one of those ones you can take 7-5 days before the period is due, It was negative. I am now 4 1/2 days late, my lifestyle hasn't changed in anyway, i am not doing anything differently, not stressed more than normal. I have no symptoms apart from being grumpy a fair bit but i normally am before my period, but that was 4 days ago, now i am fine.
I don't really want to take a test cause i think it will be negative?!

Apart from pregnancy, stress, or lifestyle change are there any other reasons for a missed period, out of the ordinary?!
