Shona - September 2

My husband and I are trying for a baby. Last month I was 2 weeks late. My 3 tests all showed Negative and quite surely I had my period. This month I am 8 days late (so far) and still the test is showing up as a negative result. I used a cheap dip stick test. Please can anyone shed a light on this for me.

Hello, I completly understand you frustration. Me husband and I are TTC also for 2 years and no luck. Trust me. I have to plenty of pregnancy test and everyone has said negative. I have asked many doctors and they said 9/10 the test is right. The pregnancy hormone can be detected as early as 6 days after intercourse so if you are taking the test in the morning and doing it like the instruction says. Then it is probably right. But just kept trying. I am sure you with have a positive sign when the time is right. Good Luck!!!!

Me and my boyfriend had s_x for the first time a little over two weeks ago without protection. I am a week late on my period and i ALWAYS start ontime. I know my body so well. I took a pregnancy test and it came out negative, but i still havent started. Could the test be wrong? What else could cause this????

Roxayne- The test could be wrong- some women don't have a postive test for awhile. Try waiting a few more days and testing again. Also, worrying about whether or not you are pregnant can actually make your period late! go figure.

You ladies sound like you should be using the BBT system. Start taking your temps and you will know exactly if you are late or not. See
