6 days late period but negative pregnancy test... Im not stressing...Could i be pregnant?...

Trust the test: A pregnancy test can detect a bhcg of about 20. Your bhcg roughly doubles every 48 hours. Let's say the first day you took it you were barely pregnant with a level of 19. 48 hours later your bhcg would be 38 which is way above the level for a urine pregnancy test to detect it. Home tests work really well and can be trusted. Repeat and if negative then you are not pregnant. ...Read more

September two periods. October No period so far. Always regular 28 day Periods. Could I be pregnant?  Pregnancy Test negative.

Highly unlikely: if 2 pregnancy tests were negative and regular menstrual periods, within reasonable doubt. So go check pregnancy test again in 1 week. Your hormones may be in flux for whatever reason, and it may be good for you to wait another 1-2 months to see if it will set itself straight. If not, then you need to see family physician or GYN provider to help with that. ...Read more
