Im 4 days late and a negative pregnancy test. Did I test too soon?

Ive been havin unprotected sex for about a month now. I had sex the day before my period was suppose to come on. after i had sex i had severe cramps for about 10 mins. Just curious if having sex pushed it back or could i be pregnant. o and i took a test but it came out negative. ive been drinkin sodas and juice all day and i took the test a few minutes. should i wait til morning to test again?

  • Having sex won't keep your period from coming. I would stop drinking liquids for the night so that your urine can become quite consentrated and then test with your first mornings urine. I know the test says you don't have to but it's the pee with the highest level of hormones.

  • Wait until morning and test before you drink anything.

  • You could have I say give it another few days. You could have ovulated later than you suspected.

  • Right to what everyone said above. Are you attempting to get pregnant? You might be too anxious which might delay your cycle as well.
