No period after provera
I have not had my period since the middle of April. All the HPTs I have taken have been negative. My bloodwork is all normal. I took provera for 10 days and 14 days later still no period. I am 44 but my internist says I am not perimenopausal. Is it possible that I am pregnant and getting a false negative on the test?
False pregnancy tests are rare, but it would be advisable to have a blood pregnancy test done to be sure.
