My girlfriend has been off the pill since mid April and still hasn't got her period but the pregnancy test came back negative. What could this be?

I am Dr Ken and I will be helping you today.

No period does not always indicate pregnancy. It can be due to varied causes like - Anemia, vitamin deficiency, hormonal imbalance {thyroid}, abnormality at the ovaries {cyst}. Negative pregnancy test rules out pregnancy.

Next step - A physical evaluation along with few investigations like blood tests/ ultrasound of abdomen and pelvis would give us more answers.

Wish her well.
