I just need some guidance because I just don’t know what to do I religiously track my periods, I usually use two apps and even thought they say different things I usually get my period between my two time frames. I have regular preiods, I have never skipped one and at the latest I have ever been is a day late.
When I was chekcing my apps, one said Nov 8th which came a a went and no AF. Then my second one said Nov 12th which came and went and no AF. I did notice on Tuesday that I had some bleeding and I thought for sure AF was coming but it did not. A few spots here and there and absolutely nothing since tuesday, not even a hint.
I took a dollar tree pregnancy test that I happened to have yesteday and it came out negative. So my question is if I take a “name brand test” now should it be able to tell me if I am pregnant or should I wait a littler longer since the dollar tree test said negative?

Doesn’t hurt to test again with a different brand. From what I understand it should be able to pick up a pregnancy if you’re past the dates you should have started AF.

Have you been under a lot of stress, or have you been sick? That delays my periods sometimes!

I would say wait a day or two and try to test again!

As PP said if you are truly passed when AF should have arrived then a home pregnancy test should show positive. It is possible that you ovulated later than normal, and it sounds like you probably don’t know when you O’d because you’re estimating when you should get AF based on previous cycle lengths. I know it is SO SO hard to just wait it out! If I was you I would go ahead and test again with a First Response Early Response test (they seem highly recommended around here!) and if still negative give AF some time to show up. Make sure to test first thing in the morning (first pee). Good luck!!

if your estimated AF dates are close to accurate, a BFP should show by now. I agree with PPs and recommend buying a few FRERs and test for next few days.
