  • You should get a positive before you even miss your period. Most tests pick up the hormones up to 5 days before your period is due. That doesnt mean you didnt get a false neg though. I would test again with your first morning pee. It has the most concentrated hormones.

  • most of the time a test will come up positive once your period is late. but in some cases, the hormone doesn't build up in the urine very much. i think that's relatively rare though. good luck :)
