Late period and have already been to the doctor...

So I took a pregnancy test at the doctcor's office and it came back negative, but I still haven't gotten my period and I'm five days late. What could be going on? Could I still be pregnant and it was just too early to detect? Or is my period just off?

  • blood test or pee test? The blood would DEF let you know pee could still be off. if it was blood then no just late, pee, then still a chance.

  • It was only a pee test. So there's still a possibility?

  • With my 3rd child, I thought I was pregnant, so I did a home test, it came out negative, I went to the dr and had a pee test, negative....I knew in my heart I was pregnant, waiting 2 weeks, went back and had a blood test done...POSITIVE!!! So yeah you could still be, ask your dr to do a blood test, they are more accurate.

  • I did a blood test and got a negative even though I was pregnant. So it can be too early with either test.
