Hormone imbalance: Your statement suggests that you have had a period since delivery. You may still be adjusting hormonally. If pregnant it may be a little early. Repeat the test in a week. Try not to worry as the stress and anxiety delay starting. If still negative then call your OB for advice.

Agree with Dr. F: You may get a blood test for HCG level as it is more sensitive and you can see change in levels on repeating the test in 2-3 days. If you do not wish to get pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time.
