  • I personally would wait until the 9th before testing again, your cycle may have changed. Are you stressing over anything? Also I heard if you try to hard to concieve your body won't take so just relax and don't fret over it (easier said than done right) Anyways hun I wish you the best of luck and I am sending tons of baby dust your way

  • Your cycle very well could have changed, especially if you were previously on birth control.

    I took my last pill on Labor Day of 2007. I told myself that it was going to take awhile to get pregnant, despite the fact that pretty much everyone I talked to got pregnant on their first try. I found out four days before Christmas that I was pregnant, and it was the best surprise EVER. Good luck!

  • Yes your cycles can change with stress and just normally change. I would go to and start charting you basil body temperatures to track ovulation. I would wait a few more days and test again. Also remember it takes the "average" woman 6 months to get pg. So dont stress.
