Customer Question
I am 18 days...

I am 18 days late on my period, I have taken about 7 home pregnancy test, all have came back negative. I am not trying to conceive and have used protection. Is it possible that I am pregnant?

Doctor's Assistant: Are you in any pain? How regular are your periods?

No I am not in any pain. I was on birth control for a year and got off of it in January because I felt like I had mood swings with it. Ever since I got off of it, my period has been all over the place. But never this late.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I am overweight.

Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

No,there is no chance of pregnancy here.

The most reliable time to take a pregnancy test is one week after you have missed a period(expected date of your period).Waiting one week after a missed period will usually give a more accurate answer.

As you are 18 days late on your period & if you have your last pregnancy test done after 7-10 days of your expected date of your period-then this test is conclusive.

There can be other causes of delay/missed period.

Stress & anxiety is the most common cause of this.

So my best advise for you is to please wait &watch for the next cycle.

This is not due to pregnancy.

Thank you.

Hope this helped

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
