How longer after you missed a period did you get a postive test result?

i was 5 days late this month, and the period was about 2 days, not as heavy as usual either. now i am not feeling so hot. i am nauseated, headaches, and have a lower back ache, and cramping in my stomach. i just took a test and it was negative :0( do you think it is too early still?

  • I just got a positive and it was 3 days before my next period! The best advice is to test 14 days after the day you think you ovulated. If you don't know when that was test withing 1-2 days after you should have received your period. Good Luck!

  • Well, I think I was around 2 weeks late when I first took a pregnancy test and it came out positive. Every woman is different and some may take longer or shorter for a pregnancy test to detect pregnancy if they are pregnant. My friend is 2 weeks late and has taken 2 pregnancy tests and both has come out negative, but shes never had her period this late so its weird. Just remember, a false negative is way more common than a false positive.

  • i was three hrs past my usual time and got a positive ... however i did get a false negative with my son and i was alreadt three mos pregnant lol. Do spring for a good test though ... it makes a difference. Or get a blood test at the local health dept ... usually free. Good luck :)
