Trust the test: If you are late for your period then the test is most likely accurate. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection by then. There are lots of reasons for late periods. A visit to your friendly obgyn is the next step.

Possibly: If you are having unprotected sex, it is possible. Wait another few days and recheck a pregnancy test. If negative or positive be assessed by your physician for ongoing care. All the best.
