I'm 13 days late but have a negative pregnancy test, what are some reasons for this?

I haven't been particularly stressed lately, haven't traveled, haven't changed anything about my usual routine, no meds, etc. Nothing has changed except for the fact that I missed my period. It's been the same schedule for the past year at least. Very curious.

  • You're only two weeks late. Wait til you're atleast three or four.

  • Sometimes you can be stressed and not even realize it. Plus your are probably just stressing that your another day late! lol Otherwise go to the doctor and have them test you. I guess 1 out or 4 women read a pregnancy test wrong???

  • IF your MAY take up to another couple of weeks to detect your pregnant with the text.

    IF your on any kind of birth control, it will screw up your periods.

  • i've missed mine due to stress four months in a row. i used to only bleed about six times a year because of it. do you have the cramps and the normal feelings? if not go to a center they usally do it for free, or talk to your doctor.

  • Do you take BC? I had this happen with a pill I took. Not sure though.

  • No. I'm not on birth control or anything. actually my husband and I are trying to conceive, so we are excited that I'm late but we dont want to get excited for nothing. My periods have been very predictable for the past year, so we're hoping this is the lucky month! Thank you all for your comments! Any others are more than welcomed!

  • If you think you are pregnant, and not able to get a positive result on a home pregnancy test, call your doctor and ask for a blood test.

  • I am on day 52 and still have BFN everytime. I scheduled a dr appt for next wednesday, but it does seem odd that even this far along (I would be a little over 7 weeks) it doesn't show. Everyone is different though. Keep us updated on what happens.
