Doctor

A:   I do understand that not getting your periods is a concern for you. Pregnancy depends on a number of factors, like the day of the period you were in when you had sex or whether you used and contraceptive methods.
You have mentioned that you took 3 pregnancy tests which were all negative, however you have not mention how long after sex you got the test done. The pregnancy test is best done the day you missed your periods or 2-3 weeks after the act.
Your missed periods could also be due to the excessive stress you are going through. I would suggest taking NSAIDS (Ibuprofen) for the abdominal cramps. And if the periods do not return to normal or pain increases, you need to see you OB/GYN to examine you further.

Guest: I would wait still. Thats what im doing. My mom had the exact same problem when she was pregnant with me. All tests were negative including blood test. Some women have that problem i dont know why. But i would keep track of your symptoms, period. If its still the same i would go back to the doctor.
