Still not menstruating
I wrote to you on the 1st April. I am still not menstruating. My last period was 2nd March. Some months I have a 25 day cycle, sometimes 36 days, but mostly 28 days. In Jan. it was 25 days, then 28 days for Feb. (until 2nd March). I had a blood test on the 31st Mar. which came back negative. I did a home pregnancy test yesterday, but still it is negative. All the symptoms make me think that I am pregnant, but still the tests are negative. Shouldn't the blood tests have picked up something and if I were pregnant surely the home pregnancy test should have showed positive by now? Do you think I should make and appointment with my gynae?

The pregnancy test would have been positive by now if you were pregnant. You say that your cycles are very irregular and your delayed period is probably due to whatever is causing the irregular cycles. I think you should see your gyanecologist to investigate the cause.
