Pregnancy test, skipped period
Hi
I need some advise I stopped my pill a month ag after being on it for 10 years im 22 yers old.
The reason I stopped was because I have indemetrioses and I had a laperoscopy D and C and Scape done and I want to start having kids Soon.
So now its Been a month and a half that I have been off the pill and it was 2 months ago I had my opp, and I have not started my period,
The DR put me on provera A 10 day coars of 10mg I am now finished and have still not started my period I have gone for a pregnancy test a blood one before the provera and it was negative.
Would there be any reason why a blood pregnancy test would be false negative.
I am Currently on anti depressants would that be the reason why, the lorien and esperide
I wish to be pregnat so I hate a big let down but it is crucial I know these answers as im a diver doing very deep dives and would not like to make problems for a pregnancy.

And Also how lon dose it take for the proverea to bring on your period as I have been finished fo 1 day now

Thanks Sugarbee

A period usually starts within 2-4 days of stopping the Provera, so give it some more time.
It is unlikely that the blood test is false.
