Hi,

Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. I'm sorry to hear about your symptoms. Actually having two negative pregnancy tests, especially the quantitative blood test is a definite indication that you are not pregnant. The delayed period can be due to a number of conditions, including a hormonal imbalance. A hormonal imbalance is the most likely cause here, as even the medications which you are taking for fertility can cause imbalances in the hormone levels as well. This can be diagnosed by a doing a complete blood panel which would be diagnostic. The treatment would be with medications. Hormonal imbalances can also occur because of stress, anxiety, infections etc.

The second possibility is because of a thyroid issue. It is possible that the medications need to be changed as one of the major causes of absent periods in women is a thyroid disorder. A repeat thyroid function test would be important here.

I would suggest that you contact your doctor and get the following tests done,

FSH, LH, estrogen and progesterone levels

TSH, T3, T4 levels

Urine analysis

And an abdominal ultrasound

These will allow us to determine the exact cause and then treat it accordingly however it is unlikely that you are pregnant.

Do you have any more questions?

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.
