i missed my period but i have taken two pregnancy tests and they have both come out negative. What now? What does this mean?

Pregnancy is the most common reason for a missed period, but there are a number of other reasons this could happen. Many women have irregular periods when they’re teenagers, and some have irregular periods throughout their lives. If you only recently started menstruating, it’s normal for your period to take a year or more to become regular.

Changing your birth control method can also causes changes in your menstrual cycle, especially if you’ve stopped or begun using an IUD or hormonal birth control such as the pill, patch, ring, or shot. If you’ve recently been ill or taken medication, that could also be a factor. Your period can also be irregular if you’ve been over-exercising, eating poorly, or experiencing a lot of stress.

If you think there’s a chance you might be pregnant, you can try taking another pregnancy test. Make sure you check the test’s packaging to see when it becomes most effective. You can also talk with a health care professional about whether or not your irregular menstrual cycle is normal.
