There : There is a possibility you could have tested too early. I recommend that you buy an early prediction pregnancy test and use first morning urine. This should give you an accurate result. If your period is still absent after another two weeks. You can test again, or present to your doctor for a visit. Good luck.

Blood test: Agree with Dr. Jackson. You may wish to see your doctor for a blood test for HCG level that may provide a definitive answer. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. Get HPV vaccine
