Late period and negative pregnancy test-what's going on??

My period is 5 days late. I took a dollar store pregnancy test today and it was negative. I did drink 20 ounces of water before taking the test though. Do you think I may have diluted my urine with all the water? When should I test again?

  • Try morning urine and get an early response test. Those dollar store tests typically test for higher levels of HCG.

  • usually it should show up by then, even if dollar store test, but there is always false negatives, never false positive :) keep trying, oh have you been under stress at all? that delays it..

  • Definitely test again in the morning. You can always have a false negative but false positives are very very rare.
