  • If you re-tested this morning, I doubt the result would be different tonight.

    I'd wait a few days. If you are pregnant, it'd give the hormone enough time to build up to read on a HPT, otherwise you're just wasting money.

  • I'd wait a few more days, and if your period still hasn't come, then test again. If you still get a negative, set up and appointment with your doctor. You could be one of the few people that only get a positive with the blood test.

  • once you get to about 40 days since the first day of your last period, then it would be wise to see a doctor for an opinion, i would try another test in two or three more days....good luck!
