Pregnancy
I am two weeks late with my period. I have taken a pregnancy test. I used TrueBlue, which is supposed to be 99% correct. It was negative. But I still haven't menstruated. I have a normal 28 day cycle. On the odd occassion, I would have a 30 day cycle. What could be wrong? Could the test be wrong? If so, what symptoms of pregnancy should I be looking for? I don't have morning sickness, or a weak bladder, should my breasts be different?

The symptoms you mentioned are the common ones, but they do not have to be present. Home pregnancy tests can sometimes be wrong, so you should probably see a doctor for a blood pregnancy test. If this is negative, he/she will assess for other causes for your delayed period.
