I was 6 days late when I tested.  I just figured it was from all the stress of the wedding and events before and after that had caused it to be late.  I tested after 6 days because I was exhusted, sore breasts, nauseous and of course missed period.

@nskillet: I think it would be okay to test now. If you’re late, you’re late, and that would give me a good enough reason to POAS! Thinking happy thoughts for you!!!

I think three days late is certainly late enough to test…provided that you truly are ‘late’ and you’re not (just for example) basing it off of being three days past 28 when you do not have a 28 day cycle.

I would do that all the time in college- as soon as I was past 28 days and had had sex during that month would freak out and buy a test. My mom was always like, you KNOW you’re not regular, so you’re not even technically late yet.

If you have a fairly predictable cycle, and you are three days beyond that, you should be clear to take a test. I’d buy a 2 or 3 pack and take one now, and if you do get a negative, maybe try again in a week.

Like Tatum said, I would go buy a 2 or 3 pack and test now, and then test again in a week if you get a BFN.  I just found out that one of my friends is pregnant, and that’s what she had to do.

Good luck!  Let us know what happens!

I wasn’t late yet. My normal pre-period symptoms were different somehow, so I tested 3 days before I was due and got a very faint positive. I didn’t trust it, so i kept testing until the day my period was due where I also switched to a first response and got a clear response of two beautiful pink lines.
