Hi I came off birth control to try and conceive


Q: Hi. I came off birth control to try and conceive five months ago. Period returned after two months. First two cycles were thirty one days apart. Both started on the 12th of each month. This month I have been on an overseas holiday for two weeks and picked up a chest infection. Had a course of antibiotics. Period is nine days late. Two negative home pregnancy tests. Could I be pregnant or am I still recovering from sickness and jet lag? Occasional mild cramps for the last week that are similar to period but a lot milder. No bleeding or spotting at all. Feeling very exhausted and weakness at times.
