You may have anovulatory cycles in which neither ovary on a given month produced a dominant follicle and thus may lead to a missed period ... This in general is common but may be rare for you ...

Also possible that a hormonal change could be the case such as high Prolactin or hypothyroidism ..these causes may be a cause of ongoing lack of menses ...

Another possible cause could have been an early miscarriage...

If one test negative you May check again to confirm that you did not have a false negative ....this in particular if you have other symptoms suggestive of pregnancy such as breast tenderness...

I hope that this information is helpful for you

Hello again,

You are very welcome

I agree that it makes sense for you to consult your OB/GYN for further evaluation of this unusual disruption of your menstrual cycle
