A week late...but the stick shows not pregnant.

What to do? I don't want to call the Dr for a blood test. It's way too soon! But a negative on the stick and a week late! I've been trying not to think about it. And I don't feel stressed. But what's the odds of a false negative?

  • I don't know what the odds are of a false negative, but I had the same thing happen in September. After three negatives, and two weeks with no period I finally called the doctor. Took a blood pregnancy test and it was also negative. They told me to wait another weeks and if I didn't get my period they were going to give me a hormone to make it come. Well the next day, I ended up getting my period. It sucks cause we have been ttc for a few months now with no success and I was really hoping to be preggo. :(

  • I didn't get a positive urine or blood test for the first month and a half of my pregnancy. Give it another week and try it again.
