I have a negative HPT even though I am 2 days late. Why?

I have a normal cycle of 31 days. Every month, no exceptions. I am 2 days late today but received a negative HPT. Why is this happening?

  • I agree... if you are putting yourself under a lot of stress about seeing the positive HPT, you could throw off your cycle.

  • why is your HPT negative? Because maybe you aren't pregnant?? Or... you tested too early.

  • Stress can make your cycle be a day or two late. I've had mine be over a week late due to various life stresses and I wasn't pregnant. If you are pregnant, you could have tested too early, you might not have allowed enough hormones to build up in your urine to give a positive test result. My advice is relax, wait a week and if your cycle hasn't shown up yet, then test again. If that's still negative, go to the doctor and ask for a blood test.

  • Either not pregnant or too soon to detect the hormone I got a false negative the first time myself.

  • lmao....everybody is saying the same thing I was thinking. Because you are not preggo.

    It is possible that it is just too soon to tell, but with the newer tests the are pretty acturate
