4 weeks late - but still BFN? So confused !

Hope someone can help or advise?

My period is now 4 weeks late but I have done 4 tests ( a few days apart ) and each one has been a BFN. I came off the pill back in Feb and my periods have more or less been normal and on time so I dont understand whats happened - has this happened to anyone else?

    Hi Natalie,

    Yes, I have had this, I had a 79 day cycle not so long ago and for a while was convinced I just had one of those pregnancies that don't show up on the test.

    From literally January 1st to 18th April this year, I had no AF at all.

    Despite people and advice being that maybe I was pg and had a missed m/c, I just think it was a freak cycle that got carried away, because there was no hint of a BFP.

    I found that when I stopped thinking about it and thought how nice it was to not have AF for nearly 4 months, lo and behold, the witch got me image

    Try not to worry and you will probably get AF. If you can't help but worry though, see your GP and get a blood test and go from there.

    Good luck!

    I'm afraid to say I had the same. I came off of my pill in jan 08 and only had three periods between then and sept. I thought it was a mixture of the pill working it's way out of my body and stress and excitement leading up to the wedding so did nothing about it until I got back from honeymoon in oct.

    It could be a number of things but I would def say get yourself down to see your gp if AF doesn't arrive within the next few weeks.

    Good luck.
