  • Well, I would say that if you aren't getting a positive test yet and you ovulated when you think you did, that you aren't going to get a positive test. Some women don't get positive home pregnancy tests and need a blood test. I would suggest asking your dr for a blood hcg test. Are you typically regular with your period? Not everyone ovulates when they think they do, but if you haven't had a period in 2 months and aren't getting a positive pregnancy test, there is a possibility that you aren't ovulating or didn't this last time. iVillage has great TTC boards with lots of information that could help you out. Good luck!

  • My cousin didn't have a period in three years and has a two year old and is pregnant again. So you can ovulate even without a period. I had a miscarriage last year, but while I was pregnant I got a negative blood test and several negative HPt's. I would wait another week and try a home test and get a blood test.

  • Wait a couple of weeks, And test again ...Going to the Docs to take your hormone level is a good idea too
