Late period ...concerned

Kate - posted on 09/06/2013 ( 2 moms have responded )




I'm hoping I can get some advice from other mums
My period is now 9 days late. I've had all the usual ... I guess you could call them pre warning signs that my period was coming.
Breast tenderness, mild cramping on and off (mostly my left side) lower back pain, tired and moody. My left shoulder has been aching for the last two days also not that that's a normal thing for me but just thought I'd throw it in.
My usual cycle is every 28 days so this is really out of the norm for me.
I've taken two home pregnancy tests 3 days apart and both were negative.
Has anyone else had this happen?
I'm going to book into the doctors on Monday.
Freaking out ...

I had several negatives with my first, think I was over 8 weeks before I could get anything confirmed through blood tests. Had another friend whos blood tests even came back as negative the first few times....hes now first is now 21.

In the end, you know your body best. Those symptoms/signs are also signs of early pregnancy, so its a bit hard to pick either way.

If its not a huge issue that you are or aren't, I wouldn't rush just yet, but if you need to know earlier the better, get off to the gp for some blood tests and get things confirmed either way. At least then you can safely treat your change in cycle and not fear any unbeknown damage.

Don't freak. My cycles used to be like clockwork. Now it is a hit and miss, sometimes a week or more off. Everything from diet to stress can affect it.
