  • Most likely it would be positive already but if your period is late then wait a few days and take another test.

  • You could be pregnant and have a neg test. The test isn't perfect. Your urine could be too dilute. You could have ovulated late. One in four women don't do the test right. There could be other reasons.

  • well i think you have to wait a little longer with my first son we were tryign to get pregnant and i waited about 1 week after my period was supose to come and i went to the doctor they told me i wasnt pregnanct that i only had a uti. well i was almost sure i wasnt pregnant since the test came out negative. so i waited and waited and myperiod never came so i waited about 3 more weeks and then went to the store and bought a pregnancy test and thats the one that came out positive. i was so happy. but yeah i think you can wait another week and just see if yout period comes if not that you should go ahead and take another test just to be on the safe side

  • Maybe, maybe not. I've always heard for the test to be accurate you should be at least 10 days or so late.

  • to get a true positive your hormonal level nees to be at 1000. it doesnt mean you are not pregnant now. i have a false negative before, and i have three year old to prove it! best of luck

  • I know it is hard to hear but wait a while longer like two weeks.

  • Every cycle (even of the same woman) is different so it can't be "due". You could've just ovulated a little late making your period late.
