If your cycles are always accurate, this could be a sign of pregnancy. You should definitely go visit your doctor.

I am 8 days late and have taken 3 pregnancy tests that show negative. I had a little cramping the day I expected my period, but then it went away and came back 6 days later. As soon as my husband and I got home from work yesterday, I started to feel queasy. It kept coming and going as we went out to eat dinner. I don't really have any other symptoms except being tired. I am very confused. I don't have any symptoms of my period like I usually do like cramping a lot, bloating, fatigue. I bought another brand of home pregnancy test, and it said negative...but I have just a feeling something is different. I was at work putting away some barbeque sauce after a board meeting, and I was taken back my the smell. It triggered my gag reflex, and I had to leave the room. I love barbeque sauce. I can open the door to my apartment and smell the fragrance of my home at least from 2 doors down. I just wonder if this is all in my head. I haven't had my period for about 3 months...I don't know whether or not I am pregnant. I took two pregnancy tests and they came out negative...I think Im gonna go see a doctor now i am the same way. today my period is 1 month, 6 days late. i have taken many tests which all come out negative. i too, feel something isn't right. i am always dizzy now, and i feel so tired, i have frequent diarrhea and nausea. my body just doesnt feel the same anymore. i really believe that i may be one of those pregnant girls that lack the hormone to be detected on a test. soon i will know!! The first definitive sign of pregnancy is a missed period. Though this is not always correct everytime.

The reason could be due to hormone imbalance which stress or a varitey of other enviromental effects could have triggered which would works in an identical way as the pill does. The pill uses analougues (simalr molecular structures) of the hormones progesterone and oestrogen which will work the same way as the hormones by inhibiting further growth of the egg and maintaining the endometrium which therefore stopping ovulation as long as the hormones analogues are high in supply. If hormones such as these two are over produced or lutenising hormone is under produced this will cause the same effect as taking the pill until the body synthesises enough of this hormone to "over power" the others.

The second answerer sounds so like me with my first pregnancy (smells, tiredness and such) that I think she is pregnant. My period was due on 17th January and the home test didn't show positive until 3rd February. (MY birthday so I remember exactly)

Yes you may be pregnant but if the tests were negative then your probably having irregular periods.

Here you must remember that missing a period is not the sign of a100% pregnancy , your periods could be delayed, and some have irregular periods as well.
