  • well first off, if you are 7 days late you didn't "skip" that month.. you are simply 7 days late. after 28 days you can say you missed your period.. (or next mid july).
    two.. you PEE on the stick, one or two drops isn't going to have enough to show pregnacy or not. you won't have enough of the hormone for it to read positive. it's best to test first thing in the morning.

    if you are really concerned though, get a blood test.. not all the time can the urine tests pick up the amount of HPT in your system. so it could give out a reading of a false negative (however if it ever says positive, it is positive).

  • Those tests are accurate, and 2 drops could be enough, if it was enough to saturate the test. I would test again in a few days to a week, and if still neg, I'd go to the doctor because by then you'd be about 2 weeks late, and *I* would want to know if something was wrong. hazeldove, the dollar store tests you pee in a cup and use the dropper to drop urine onto the test. You can even use another dollar store test, they are fine, just use the right amount to be sure. I drop one drop, and wait for it to start to absorb before dropping the 2nd, same thing with 3 and 4. Wait a few seconds between drops that way it absorbs, and wait the amount of time specified on the box before reading results.
