  • I got pregnant with my son after trying for 9 months WHILE I was on my period. You can get pregnant at anytime, it's just not as likely. So yeah you could be pregnant. Wait a few more days and test again.

  • Stress can sometimes cause periods to be off. If you haven't started in another week, I would take another HPT, if it is still negative I would go to the doctor to get a blood pregnancy test because not all HPT are correct. You can get a false negative.

  • the pregnancy hormone hcg may not be detected,it is too early. most doctors won't test until missing two periods. the reason is the hcg is not detectable yet.

  • Since your a week late and the tests are showing up negative then I would make an appt with your ob/gyn. Further testing may need to be done. Good luck.
