im so scared..........

my period was to come on the 17th. Here it is the 19th and I have no sign of my period.
I believe that I ovulated on the 6th. I used ovulation predictor tests.
I have been late only once and it was 1 day late. (I went out a bought a test that day and took it and it was negative. Then my period came later that day.)
I took a test on Wed morning and it was negative.
I am so scared to go out and get a test because I dont want to get my hopes up.
So how long after you miss your period should you take a test?

  • Wait a few more days. You're just a couple days late. That happens to me all the time. My period usually comes Thursday mornings but sometimes doesn't come until Saturday. Periods are not the most reliable of things!

Although i must say seems like tis the season to get preggo my good friend had been trying for a year and finally got her BFP so here is some dust and luck coming your way! Anyway I would give it a at least 3 or 4 more days if not a week!! OR if you cant wait go to a dr and get a blood test!

  • I would wait a few more days. Or if you can't.. Get a test that says it predicts early and test your first urine of the day. If it's still negative wait another week. Good luck :].

  • Ok, so if you don't want to spend money on all the name brand tests and stuff, check out your local dollar store or dollar general store. Alot of times they have them for $1 a piece! good luck
