I think you should go to your doctor and get a blood test. It could be that your levels aren’t high enough for a test to turn positive. It could also be an ectopic pregnancy whose levels aren’t rising fast enough to show up. Or, you could just be late.

Do you chart your temperature or anything?  It’s possible you ovulated later than usual, which would delay your period…

Also, did you test with FMU (first morning urine)?  Any hormones would be more concentrated with FMU than subsequent urinations.

Test again tomorrow, with FMU, and if you don’t get a positive or a period in the next few days, it might be a good idea to check in with your women’s health provider to see what they advise next.

If you are really 8 days late then any pregnancy test should show a positive by now I would think, FMU or not.  It’s possible though that you ovulated later this month which would mean your period is possibly not yet due.  You could still become pregnant, but it may be too early in that case to tell yet.   I agree with PP though that if AF doesn’t show soon and you are still getting negative tests I’d call a doc to get checked out just to be sure.  Good luck!

Sometimes there’s not enough HCG in your urine and it may only show on a blood test. Call your doctor for peace of mind. Good luck!

If you have your days right and truly are 8 days late then a test would show positive by now. I’d get a blood test done just to be totally sure, but it’d be rare to be 8 days late and a pregnancy test not come up positive.

@NJmeetsBX:  Def try to go to your md for blood work, your HCG levels could still be too low for a HPT.  Good luck and keep us posted! :))))

@NJmeetsBX: How long have you been off BC?

@NJmeetsBX:  Interesting. Well I just assumed you just came off BC and that could make your cycle wonky. Well either you are pregnant or something else is causing your period to be delayed. Our bodies like to mess with us often. I hope you get an answer soon either way 🙂

A good friend of mine got negative tests for 2 weeks after her period was due and had just made an appointment with her doctor thinking something was wrong and she tried another test and finally got a positive. She’s now about 15 weeks preggo. I think some peoples chemistry just makes their positives come later. If it doesn’t show up soon, and you still have negative tests I would see a doctor.
