  • You should be fine to take one this week, take it first thing in the morning. Your morning pee is the best! LOL

  • There are a lot of things that make your period late. Worrying about being late is a big one. You could take a test once a week, and eventually you'll either see the positive results, or get a period. If you go three months with no period and still a negative result, you will want to see your gynecologist to see what else could be going on.

  • I would take it a week after you took the last one.

  • I'd take one today. I got a neg one day and a pos 3 days later (evening pee). Good luck!

  • If it doesn't come soon you may want to get a blood test done I had a pee test done and two weeks later had my son prematurely...

  • I would have a blood test done if you are more than a month late. Good luck!

  • I'd talk with your doctor since you're over a month late. Some women make a type of HCG that the tests don't pick-up. That may be why your tests were negative.
