SUPER WORRIED

I don’t know what seems to be going on…I last got my period on Nov.24th and it’s now Jan.06 and I still haven’t got it. I have been reading the above comments and it seems to be happening to other girls. The only difference is that I “AM” trying to conceive. Is it something going around or what else can it be? i took a urine pregnancy test and it came back (-) According to my calculations it’s been a month and a half without it my period. This has NEVER happened to me no matter how stressed I can be. What might be the problem?

You might have taken the pregnancy test too early?
So if you have ~ 28 day cycle you could have conceived ~ 6-10th December. Then implantation can take 1-2 weeks after that and then the hormone tested for in pregnancy tests can take 2 weeks after that to reach detectable levels in the urine.

so take another pregnancy test now- you might find it's positive this time :)
Also, can I ask if you're taking a folate supplement?
Best of luck conceiving.

No i'm not taking folate. What is that? And what does it do? Btw, i already have two kids but the third time i tried to conceive, i lost it when i was about 4 months about 4 years ago. I have only tried this past month but i'm worried that it might not happen soon do to that.

Folate, or folic acid, is a natural vitamin found in small quantities in fresh leafy vegetables (but damaged if these are cooked) and is highly recommended (in Australia at least) as a supplement for women who are trying to conceive.
The vitamin is essential during the first 8 weeks of the baby's development (starting right from fertilisation)and is necessary throughout pregnancy.
A daily supplement of folate, started before conception, decreases the risk of neural tube defects (eg. spina bifida) by 80%. If there has never been a baby with spina bifida in the family before, the incident is around 1 in 1000. If there is family history, the odds are much greater at around 1 in 25.

But if you've already had 2 kids you probably already have a good understanding of what a good diet during pregnancy includes.

I'm very sorry to hear about your miscarriage, I can see where your worries are stemming from.
Did your Doctor go through with you the probable cause of the miscarriage? Like was the placenta attached in the wrong place or anything? Have you had regular pap smears? - that'd rule out most problems with your cervical stability. Any prolapse, major UTI's that may have spread, were you checked for gestational diabetes and high blood pressure during pregnancy?

Man I'm probably just making you more worried than you need to be, I'm sorry. Having a baby just generally takes more patience as time goes on. Which is a little counter intuitive in this day and age when teenage pregnancy is a bummer and women are trying to start their families later.

But Mom, please don't tie yourself in a knot. Have faith that everything will turn out ok over time. And you can rule out, one by one, all the possible problems. I wish you all the best.

Well see, in reality this is what happened…at the time when I was pregnant, I had a lot of problems and was going through a very rough time economically. Top it off, it was NOT planned therefore I was not in the perfect health. But now, it’s been a while and feel like it might be a good time. I am a one loyal female to pap smears. I just had one done a little before my husband and I starting planning a baby and it all came back normal. No infections what so ever. As for diabetes, blood pressure etc. I also had some blood work done and it all came back normal as well. It seems like I’m a pretty healthy girl but I just don’t understand what’s happening now.

I did take the pregnancy test yesterday and it came back negative =/ But yet I still have not got my menstrual period. Now I’m not only curious but am concerned and worried. This has NEVER happened to me. I’ve always been regular. The most I’ve been late is MAYBE a week. But this time it’s been since Nov.24th.

I also tracked down my ovulation. I don’t know if I did it right because I don’t how if I’m a 28 day cycle or whatever that might be. According to my last period, my ovulation cycle started on Dec.12-19. Does that sound about right? If so then I think it still is too early to tell.

I’m sorry I don’t want to sound like an urged teenager because I am now 29 yrs old and already have 2 kids but this is all just too weird and scary. According to the info I’ve given you, do you think my opinion is about right or is it possible that I don’t get my period do to “stress”? If so, is it possible to be THIS LATE do to stress?
