  • Yep, you could be. I'd wait a week and try again. With my current pregnancy the first test I took was negative, I waited a week and tested again, and sure enough, I'm pregnant!

  • Wait a week. If your period still hasn't come then test again. If it is negative, go see your doc.

  • You could still be pregnant, but is your period usually the exact same day everytime? Also, it is probably too soon to show up on a pregnancy test.

  • Your body may not have a high enough level of HCG, which is what those tests look for. Many of them require a level of 50, while others detect as low as 25. IF you have ovulated late, then it may not show up for a few more days, or even weeks. Wait another week, or even a few days, and take another test. It may help to wait for morning first urine, to detect the highest level of HCG that your body will produce. If you wait 2 weeks and still no results with either a positive or a period, call the doctor. Either way, you should call them because if you are pregnant you will need prenatal care. Best of luck.

  • i am the type that shows enough hcg in my urine before i miss my period.. Did you use first morning urine? That makes a big difference.. If you haven't started I would test again with first morning urine! GL

  • yeah, try using more sensitive tests, not digitals the next time you test, and wait 3-4 days before trying again.
