  • Personally that hasn't happened to me but I do know of someone who kept getting negative tests (even on blood tests done by her doctor) but she KNEW she was pregnant so they finally did a sonogram and sure enough she was. She was almost 4 months by then and starting to show.

  • I got preg on the 23rd and had a pos test by the 2nd, I kinda knew I was preg when it happened, (felt the ovulation) sometimes it just depends on your levels. The lines were really light but it was there. Take the test first thing in the morning that is when your levels are at their highest. GOOD LUCK

  • I believe everyone is different but the majority of time, by 5 days you should be able to get an accurate pregnancy test, With my first baby, I found out when i was only 5 days late.... and my second baby which i am carrying right now as we speak....I didn't even miss a period and still got an accurate test...I was 3 weeks pregnant when i found out...and believe me, i was in denial but now i'm about 14 weeks and I know for sure that I am. I'll say to you, just wait a little while and see what happens, don't spend too much money on the test because sometimes you can just be late for your could be stress or just anxious to be....either one of those can sometimes delay your cycle for what ever reason...especially if you want one. so relax and give it a few days.

  • Good Luck! I was 10 days after my missed period when i took the test that came back positive. Everything depends on your hormone levels in the urine. You could very well be pregnant. I had a friend that took 10-15 pregnacy tests within a matter of 2 days cause she was certain she was and the last one came back postive. she took it about 30 min afters the previous one which had been negative. Wait a few days and try again.
