Home pregnancy tests are very accurate so if it's saying negative, you aren't pregnant. There are a lot of other reasons for skipping periods. The most common is stress. Most women skip a few periods during their life due to stress. Thyroid disease and elevations in prolactin hormone are 2 other reasons that we test for by drawing blood. Other reasons include various medications, excess exercise, eating disorders, polycystic ovarian syndrome, early menopause and a few others. But by far the most common reason is stress. And in your age group, followed by polycycstic ovarian syndrome.
