Not sure what is happening
Hi

I stopped the pill end Jan 05. Since then my cycles have varied between 26 and 30 days. I have not yet received my period for this month. If I work on my last cycle, which was 26 days, I am 9 days late and if I work on the longest, 30 days, I am 5 days late. I ovulated a week later this month than usual. I have done an HPT on day 31 and 33 and both negative. Could I have conceived and it might still be too early for the tests to pick it up as possible conception only took place about 15/16 days ago, or should I give it another week to see if my period arrives.

I have never missed a period in my life so this is a first. I know that there are many reasons for a period to dissappear but there is no reason for mine to stay away, unless I have conceived.

Please hold thumbs for me and pray that this is my month. I have such mixed emotions right know. I do not know what to make of it and the days just go by so slow.

Thanx

Z

You say that your ovulation was a week later than usual, so I assume around Day 20 -21. Your period should then only be due on Day 34 of your cycle. Wait and see what happens then.
