Question 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.

Re: Late period / not pregnant?


I think I would be very aware of the cramping, if it begins to increase in intenstity, than I would definately contact the doctor. If it remains only mild and you do not get your period within the next 10 days than you can request blood to be drawn to check your thyroid levels and to make sure that you are not pregnant.

I hope the results are what you are looking for.
