How long should I wait to take another pregnancy test?

My period is two days late today. I took an dollar store test yesterday and it was negative. I have never been late before and my belly just feels funny/different. I don't really have other symptoms besides my breasts are a bit tender like they would usually be for a period. I also have been having random headaches and it seems like I have to pee more, but I could just be imagining that. My cycle is 34 days so would that affect the timing of taking a pregnancy test? When should I try again or is the negative the truth?

  • Wait a week, test again. If still negative, and still no period, see your doctor.

  • Most of the tests tell you to wait 5-10 days after you period has been missed

  • Wait two or three days at least. If it's still negative and no cycle call your doctor.
