Period is five days late and negative pregnancy test. Could I still be pregnant?

Yes: if you are using standard urine pregnancy tests it is possible that they are not sensitive enough and that you are not far enough along in a pregnancy to be detected.

No period three days past expected period and a negative pregnancy test could I still be pregnant?

Possibly: Have you always been regular? what kind of pregnancy test did you have done? was it an over the counter home pregnancy test? Some can provide false negative results. I would recommend repeating it. If it is still negative then I would just wait a little longer and see if your period resumes. If that does not happen then it is time for you to have your doctor order a serum(blood) pregnancy test. ...Read more

Period came on time for the past 4 months had unprotected sex now period a week late but negative pregnancy test .. Could I still be pregnant?

Tests are accurate: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications. A correctly done urine test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon. ...Read more
