7 days late on period and negative test, could I still be pregnant?

Today, I am 7 days late on my period. I took a pregnancy test this afternoon, negative. I have a 30 days, regular cycle. I have never been late besides the time I was pregnant with my first child. I have no new stress in my life, I am not TTC so I don't think it's in my head. I don't have any symptoms, not even PMS symptoms. Also, we have always been safe, it wasn't unprotected. Is this common, is there still a possibility of being pregnant after a negative?

  • I'm 20 days late and still get negative pg tests!!! LOL! I think it's possible. Are you testing first thing in the morning or later in the day? Give it another week before testing again.

  • Sometimes it just takes longer for the hormone levels to build up enough for a positive and sometimes even people who are super regular get a late period for no apparent reason. I would wait a day or two and take another test. If its still negative I'd consider going in for a blood test.

  • I read in a medical book once that medically you're not even considered late until 10 days have passed. This is because you can be late for reasons other than pregnancy.
