Exclamation Late Af But Neg. Hpt's??

I just cant figure this out, I have never been this late for af, actually I am never late, sometimes early but not late, all my pregnancy tests are coming out negative. I go to my doctors tomorrow to get a blood test, I also still have ovulation tests coming out very positive. Any one else ever have this happen? Thanks in advance.

Re: Late Af But Neg. Hpt's??

I have not experienced this but I have a couple ideas...
1) Maybe you ovulated late. Did you experience stress or go on a trip in the first half of your cycle? If so, that could delay your ovulation and therefore delay AF.
2) Or (I'm hoping it's this one!) maybe your particular HPT detects only higher levels of the hormone HCG (which all HPT's detect to determine pregnancy). Some HPT's are much more accurate than others. But the blood test you get at your doctor should be more accurate and detect lower levels, so you'll know for sure.

Hi, thanks for your response, no I haven't experienced alot of stress, or gone on a trip or anything like that. The Hpt's that I have used are supposed to detect it at 25mlu so i guess i will just have to wait and see tomorrow. Thanks alot. Take care.
