  • Sometimes, when we are trying to conceive, we get a little anxious, this can cause our period to be late, though not pregnant.
    I would suggest that you relax, do something fun to try to take your mind off of it. If you are pregnant or not, you will soon know, so never mind the test.
    If your period is late over 2 weeks and the urine test is still negative, pay a visit to the Gyno.

  • Try peeing into a cup and dipping the stick, it works better then trying to pee on a stick.

  • Faulty tests. You got a bad happens. Call the company and let them know. They'll either send you new ones or refund your money depending on the company. Won't do you any good right now, though. All you can do is go out and buy some new ones.
