Stress, Diet, Weight: Pregnancy tests are quite accurate. Since the test was negative, odds are, you aren't pregnant. There are many other causes of a missed period besides pregnancy. For example, sometimes your birth control, stress, thyroid problems, weight, dieting or other problem can make you miss periods. To be on the safe side, repeat the pregnancy test in about a week. Best wishes!

Delayed menses: Many women have menstrual cycles that have normal intervals of 30 to 35 days. Your period may simply be delayed.

Your choice: Many times the test may not pick up an early pregnancy until it has a bit more time to create the hormones that turn the test positive.
