Be patient: The Pregnancy tests are pretty sensitive, so you need to be patient. You can wait until your next period as next to being pregnant, one of the next common causes is a simple missed ovulatory cycle (Anovulatory cycle). If your next period comes on normally, you are fine. Keep checking preg tests to re-assure yourself, but be patient. Check with GYN if it period does not return. Best wishes
