Did you test?: if you are sexually active you need a pregnancy test; if not, you can wait and see if your period starts.

Pregnancy: Pregnancy can occur if you had unprotected sex. The over the counter pregnancy tests are very sensitive and may be positive within 5-7 days after a missed period. However, they are not foolproof. And your period may not come exactly on the day you expect it every month. Illness, stress, fatigue can all cause a slight irregularity in your cycle. Get a blood test if no period in the next week.

Depends: If you had sex since your last period, you could be pregnant. If you did the tests correctly and those were negative at 6 days after missed period, pregnancy is unlikely. You may wish to get a blood test for HCG level to settle the issue. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. Get HPV vaccine

Wow! Six?!: You are spending a fortune on tests! One of two things is happening here. 1) you may be pregnant but you are testing too early for test to turn positive. 2) you aren't pregnant and are just late. This happens for lots of reasons, illness, stress, hormone imbalance, etc. Wait for a full week then test again. A little patience is required here.
