Pregnant?

So,i have low progesterone and my cycles are usually about 35-38 days long. Well, i am now on day 53. And still no period. And ive gotten 3 negative pregnancy test.  Does low progesterone increase your chance for a false negative? Im gonna call my doctor in the morning, to try and go in for blood work to confirm if i am or not. But has anyone else had issues with low p and negative testing ?

Well i havent personally dealt with this but i know a little about this. So low progesterone levels can cause HCG levels from rising. HCG is what the pregnancy test needs to detect pregnancy. Your levels could cause a false negative, however if that is the case, you need to see a doctor asap because HCG levels need to rise in order to sustain a healthy pregnancy.

To correct that second sentence i meant to say low progesterone  can PREVENT HCG levels from rising.

Yeah I would be impatient too. I dont see why they want you to wait another week. Youre 2 or more weeks late for your period, the test should show by now. You need progesterone supplementation right away if youre pregnant.
