Late period, abdominal pain

My period is about 14 days late! I have been cramping, had nausea, and even been dizzy. I also have an increase in bowel movements. I took a pregnancy test yesterday and it was negative.

Sometimes I have sharp shooting pains in my stomach. It almost feels like someone is stabbing me in my vagina. These pains vary in severity and come and go. For the past few days I have felt very sluggish and dizzy. And my period still has not come. I also feel my heart has been racing. Resting heart rate is well in the 100's. I honestly feel like I am on my period, but no blood is coming out. I had a baby almost 5 months ago. my lmp was Sept. 23, 2005. I took another test this morning and it was also negative.


Dear TA,

A late period and abdominal pain raise the possibility of an ectopic (tubal) pregnancy. Usually a pregnancy test will be positive, but sometimes the hormone level is too low to be detected. You need to see a doctor and get this checked out as soon as possible.
