Recheck : Using condoms are not 100% protective ... 6 days may be too early... After the first 7 day is better. Please repeat the test or visit a gyn to do a blood test instead... Good luck!

Do a blood test.: There are many reasons to be late on a period other than pregnancy but pregnancy is a common one. If you really think you are pregnant, always get a blood test for hcg. The home pregnancy tests are accurate but not infallible. Stress or other hormone changes can affect your period and cause you to be late.
