  • Well if your period is only due today your typical urine test would not have detected it that early if you took it a week ago....even the early prediction ones may have just been too soon to tell. Wait and see if you do miss your period today and then test in the morning with FMU!

    Good Luck

  • Typically, you shouldn't take a test until the first morning after your period is a week late.

  • If it were me...I would be testing every day until I got a positive or a period. Testing early could have just led to a false negative because your hormones weren't high enough to register. I am terribly impatient though. I could never wait a FULL WEEK after I missed a period. I would be in the funny farm by then. LOL

  • Try testing again. You might not have had enough HCG built up in your system last week. You cannot rush nature as much as we like to try. The placenta needs time to start functioning properly. Testing too soon will always render a false negative. You should always wait until your cycle is late before you even consider testing.

  • The other posters are right! You just have to wait! I know its difficult, but testing too early is just throwing money out the window!
