My period is now one day later than it has been in the two years I've been casually tracking my cycle. My cycles vary in length from 29-34 days and today is day 35. I once had a cycle (last July-August) that ran 45 days, but I was just returning from Tanzania with a serious case of food poisoning at that time, so that made sense to me that it was so incredibly late.

I've been fighting off a sinus infection since early May. My last period came on time and was normal. I thought that I ovulated 14-15 days after my last period, but then I had increased discharge that looked like the discharge I get at ovulation AGAIN about a week later (days 19-20). I started having cramps and back pain, as I always do, on day 28 and the cramps and pain continued through this morning and now seem less painful this afternoon. I feel like I had an invisible period. My breasts still feel swollen, as they do during PMS, but hurt slightly less today. My boyfriend and I use condoms and haven't had any issues. I took a pregnancy test first thing in the morning on day 32 and it was negative, but if I ovulated later than I thought, it may have been a false negative...

Anyway, I'm just really freaking out. I've never gone this long without a period. I've been very stressed the past two weeks (facing a potential move across the country), low-core sick the past month, and I suspect I may have lost a few pounds. I am very thin naturally (5'6"/105 pounds) and when I last weighed myself, I was hovering around 100 pounds. I'm not sure how this happened, since I"ve been eating very healthfully as always.

It's possible that a slight dip in my weight + stress + illness have conspired to make my period late. I am just nervous about pregnancy at this point, and I know no one can reassure me there until I take another pregnancy test later this week.

I guess I'm seeing who else has had experiences like this to reassure myself until I test again.

Thanks in advance.
