My periods have been late since August, before August I had a generally regular 29-31 days cycle. In august my cycle was 36 days then September it was 35 days now October I am on cycle day 39, hubby and I had unprotected sex this month on cycle days 12, 15, 17 & 28. Im having cramps almost like period cramps but no period, my appetite has increased I used to go all day without eating until dinner and now if i do I'm starving, my nipples are tender on and off, and I also feel nauseous on and off, also sneezing or coughing I have a sudden cramp like sensation in my low stomach, took a urine test at the clinic mid afternoon yesterday (cycle day 38) and it was negative. The nurse recommended I go back in a week if I don't get my period.. My question is wouldn't it have shown up on a test yesterday if it was positive? Or is it possible its a false negative? My period has never been this late.

Hello Ms95

Thank you for writing.

At day 38 of your cycle, a test would be accurate up to 99%. It sounds like your cycle is becoming more irregular in general. If your next test is negative, talk to your doctor about your irregularity. Some blood tests can see if you have a hormonal imbalance.
