  • Your period may just be off or the test that you're taking may not be picking up on the pregnancy hormone yet. Make sure you've read the instructions completely. Do it first thing in the morning when you wake up and the hormones are at their highest. You could also go to the dr for a more accurate blood test.

  • This is tricky. you may be late for many reasons. if you are really really hoping for a positive test result, sometimes your body will show signs you are pregnant. Take a test every week, or go to the doctor and ask for a blood test. You are more likely to have a false negative than a false positive

  • YOu could just be stressed. When in doubt call your doc and get a blood test

  • Well December of 2009 I took 3 HPT's and they were negative, I went to the hospital they did a blood preggo test & turned out I was 7 weeks pregnant but unfortunately it was an ectopic pregnancy. I think the best thing you should do is go see your doctor for a blood pregnancy test if AF doesn't come down soon those are way more accurate then HPT's. But try not to stress yourself out too much because that can also delay your period, it's happened to be before as well.

  • try a digital test... they are so much more accurate because I've found that the 2nd line on the other type of test can be so faint that you think the test is negative. I agree with Vanilla... I also had an ectopic:(

  • With this pregnancy, I had 2 pregnancy tests (1 day apart) come out negative. I waited a week, tested again, and that test was positive. (Along with 2 others after it a day or two later.) I think I just ovulated a little later than "normal."
