Negative still?

I took a pregnancy test on the day I was supposed to have my period & it was negative. I haven't had any signs of PMS but why would my result be negative? I know I should wait a couple of more days to see if I am just a little late but I have been WAY too impatient. What's the chance that even though I had sex w/my DH up to and following days of ovulation that I just miss my period but am not pregnant?

  • Stressing out about trying conceive can actually make you miss your period. Take another test in two weeks.

  • Egg is only viable 24 hours after it is released. Sperm need to be waiting on it when it releases... ideally. The sperm can actually live for up to 5 days inside you (is that just the grossest thing ever or what!). You could have ovulated late which is why your test is neg and you haven't started your period yet, or your stress level could be delaying the start of your period.
