Customer Question

Hi I am a 30 year old female my period was due the 1st of August it hasn't come. I have done two pregnancy tests in last two days and both are negative we have not had unprotected sex. I have a dull pain on my left side the last couple of days also. What could be wrong.

This is unlikely pregnancy, but a blood test is completely definitive
The pain needs exam, pelvic and abdominal.

Are you up to date on pelvics and paps?
endometriosis, fibroids, thyroid problems, lever problems, kidney problems, kidey stone, other problems...all need to be ruled out.
Let me now if you have more details.

I am all up to date with all tests this just came on this month. Should I go visit my GP now or wait longer to see if my period comes as I know I am worked up about been pregnant as already have two and now I worried it could be something more serious.

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 4 years ago.
Stress can affect hormones and this is common, even to skip a period.

However, any pain needs an examination, so for that see your GP now.

OK. If you have further questions or details, use reply to expert.
