Pregnancy Test?: That depends on how long your menstrual cycle is. Try testing if you miss your menstrual cycle and have been sexually active.

Yes...: You can test for pregnancy by this time. If negative and still with no period follow up with your doctor for further evaluation and testing as necessary.

Wait for next cycle: Most cycles are about 28 days apart. If yours is longer than that then you may want to see your gyn and have your hormone levels checked.

Depends: If your periods were 28 days the wheel says you should have conceived may 17, it depends on how far apart your periods are, you usually ovulate 14 days before so if your periods are every 28 days you ovulate day 14, if they are 35 days apart you ovulate day 21.

4-18-13: Normally you would have conceived 2 days ago and your edd would be 4-18-2013. You really should not count this until you have at least missed a period.

Early period: If your pregnancy tests are consistently negative then you can feel comfortable that you are not pregnant. It is extremely common for women to be late or early from time to time. This usually works itself out after the next cycle. If not see your obgyn for irregular menstrual cycles.
