  • Have you been sick? Sometimes if you have been sick or stressed out it will make ur period be late. I would wait it out over the weekend and take another one. If it is still neg: then I would make a Doctore appt.. Good luck and God bless.

  • Ask yourself:
    Are your periods regular ?
    Have you been stressed lately ?
    What is your age, i.e. are you younger than 40?
    Do you know you're fertile ?
    Is there any fertility or hormones issue with you or your family ?
    Have you got any early pregnancy symptoms like nausea, tender breasts or change in appetite?
    Finally, did you "do it" during ovulation = fertile days ?

    Good luck !

  • just relax about it. If you are pregnant the stress isnt good to begin with but if you arent you wont get your period if your too stressed about it! I know its super hard. I have another week until I can even test for pregnancy and its the worst. You should call your doctor and see if they can order you a blood test. They show up quicker and better than a home test. Some women just have low hcg! Good Luck!

  • You can take a HPT as early as 6 days after your missed period! It all depends on the brand, so i'd recommend first response. It specifically says on the box that you can test as early as six days after your missed period.

    Just be sure not to drink too much water before you test, this can cause the pregnancy hormone to dilute, giving unclear results...
    Morning pee will give you the best results! (the pee you have once you wake up)
