kbailey109 - April 27

My husband and I have been trying to conceive since my IUD was removed in June of 2005. Still no luck! However, this month my period is actually 1 day late. I am normally like clockwork and according to my tracking I should have started yesterday. I took a hpt last night and it was neg. Still no period, am I trying to test too early, how accurate are those early tests? When should I try to retest with a hpt or should I go to the dr. for a blood test? We are soooo anxious and I am worried that if I get too excited i will stress out and that will cause my period to be even later!

Hi retest in a couple of days your hcg levels could have risen by then. If not go and see your doc. Good luck and keep us posted.

The early detection tests are very accurate when you are pregnant. There is a small minority of women who do not get a positive early on but most will at your stage.

By the way, having a late period can also be bacuase you ovulated later than you thought. Good Luck

Oh well..... I finally gave in on the 28th and went to the Dr. for a blood test. Just a late period. :( Dr. seems to think Emma could be right, just ovulated later than I thought. We'll keep trying. Thanks for your support!

kbailey Hun..... Loads of women on here are having signs of pregnancy they are late and negative tests.... I have all the syptoms they started 2weeks before my period was due which was 30th april.. I am 5days late..i went to see my doctor yesterday i have to take urine sample down on monday... I asked why he leave uit until monday he said that only 16% of women test positive a day after a missed period he said its best to wait 1-2 weeks then you will get a more accurate result.. I will get my results on tuesday if it comes bk negative then i will have to wait another week to have blood test
