Hi there everyone. I am a 27 year old mom of a 17 month onld and my husband and I are trying to conceive our second child. I was just wondering if anyone has had them has had the following situation. I got of birth control pills in January. I have had two very regular periods (27-28 day cycle). This month I had some slight staining 11 days before my period (it only lasted for one day) and my period was expected to come last Friday or Saturday (17th or 18th). My period never showed up so I took a pregnancy test which cam up negative. Today is the 20th and still no period. Can anyone give me some advice?

Thanks so much! I have only been on the pill for three years, my son was conceived while I was on the pill. I have always had regular periods either 28-29 days. That is why I am confused. I have had slight cramping for almost a week now like it was coming and a headache but still nothing. I was thinking of doing that. Thanks once again.

You might be pregnant already even with the test coming out negative. Some times the tests do get it wrong... even the doctors.

On the other hand if you've ever had irregular periods before it might be starting to happen again. I know my own after I went off the pill stayed regular for a little while but then went back to being irregular.

Try waiting it out for another week. Take another test on the weekend if your period doesn't show up. If it still comes up negative then go in to see your doctor.
