Patient :I got off birth control implanon February 17 and never started my period I spotted a little bit two days the next week and two more days the following week. I have been throwing up every morning stomach cramps breast tenderness and fatigue every day. I'm 21 days late on my period but been having negative pregnacy test.
Thank you for writing to us.
Here are possible causes of missed periods:
The most common cause usually is pregnancy. I believe that the hCG levels have not reached such a high level that they make the pregnancy test positive.
You can see a Gynecologist to get a Serum hCG assay done and an ultrasound to confirm the pregnancy. I hope this helps you.
