Strange symptoms...
Hi Doc, I am approximately a week late for my periods (although, I can't really remember having them in December either!). I've been having the usual PMS symptoms for the past 2 weeks (tender breasts, emotional etc). I did a pregnancy test this morning (after drinking a lot of water) and it was negative - is it possible that the water diluted the urine too much and it didn't pick up pregnancy or could there be something else wrong?

I tried to make an appointment to see a gynae and I was told that she is booked up until May. Could you recommend a female gynae who practises in the Tableview (Cape Town) area?

I agree that the blood test would be a good idea.
You could check the Find a doctor section for gynaecologists
