| | Late period / not pregnant?
Need some thoughts/advice/comments/answers....
I'm almost 42, have had three pregnancies (and 3 kids). With the last one, who is almost 4, I had a c-section & tubal ligation. My cycle is about 25 days, always has been since I was 12.5. Always been regular, never had any trouble, never, ever late except when pregnant. Well, I'm a week late. This has never happened. Decided to take a pg test yesterday, and it was negative.
A little more background: I am under a lot of stress right now, but stress has never affected my cycle before. I have some thyroid nodules that have stayed small and are currently on watch. All my levels have been well within range. I am having some mild cramping (not period cramps) and have been extremely tired, but am on meds that could cause the fatigue.
Could I still be pregnant even though the test is neg? With the tubal, isn't there a higher incidence of ectopic pregnancy and could that affect the test? I have had no symptoms of peri-menopause but could this be the start? Should I give this another week or just call a doctor asap? What do you all think?? Any advice would be helpful.
