Late with MENSTRUAL CYCLE, negative OTC pregnancy test. Pregnant?

Resolved Question:

Hi, I am about 6 days late with my menstrual cycle; I have taken 2 OTC pregnancy tests and both have indicated a negative result; I have had a headache on and off for about a week; its a dull aching headache located in the front of my head; I have some mild cramping and am irritable.
I have recently began the weight watchers program and have incorporated exercise into my schedule. This week I did 30-35 minutes of intense cardio/5 days. Do you have any advice? Any ideas of what can be going on? When should I think about calling my OB?
Thank you for your time.

Thank you for your query at DoctorSpring.com
I understand your concern
Delayed periods can be due to many reasons apart from pregnancy. As you have already taken two pregnancy tests you need not worry. I advise you to repeat test two to three days after as results are more accurate after a week's period for the urine pregnancy test.
As stress, anxiety and extreme exercise may be one of the major causes of delayed menstruation I advise you to allow yourself one more week before you consult your Obstetrician.
Hope this was helpful,
