unusually late period but negative pregnancy test?

Hi! It's my first time posting--hello everyone!
Just have a question that someone might be able to help with...
Ever since I got married I have had a VERY regular 28 day menstrual cycle--never late, never early.
We are trying to get pregnant, and today I am at least five to six days late for my period.
I did a pregnancy test this morning that came up negative.
How reliable is that result since I usually have such a normal cycle?
I don't have any other symptoms besides frequent urination and butterflies in my stomach that could just be from the excitement of the whole situation.
So I guess my question is whether or not it is "worth it" to take another pregnancy test; if so, when; or, what else could even be the cause of such a delay in my usually predictable period?
Thanks for any comments, etc!

I am kind of in the same boat. My last menstral cycle was in September .. and it is now Nov. 25 and still nothing. I feel pregnant, but I just took a blood test yesterday and it came up negative. How odd huh? I don't know what to do about it. I know that I am pregnant and definitely feel it. I have had one prior pregnancy, and hope this is another one. Can blood tests be wrong ?

I think  His gorgeous Angel is living proof that tests can come up negative and you could still be pregnant.  She first posted on 11/10 saying the tests were negative then posted on 11/21 saying that she is 3 months pregnant.  So, there is always hope.  Good luck and keep us posted.

My last period was on October 29, 2003 my periods prior to that were Sept.29,2003 and Aug 31,2003, they all lasted for 5 days. I tracked my fertile days for three months and was sure that I ovulated on Nov 12,2003 I had all the ovulating symptoms. I also had unprotected sex on Nov 11,2003. I went to the doctor on Dec.1,2003 and they gave me both a urine and blood pregnancy test that came back negative. I've been having mild cramps from time to time but I really don't feel pregnant. My stomach is still flat and I always feel empty other than that I'm normal. What are my chances of still being pregnant?

Hello, My last period was on November. I never miss a period. I feel different, so I think that I am pregnant. I have been with nausea, back pain and a lot of things. I got two blood test negative.  Now, my doctor prescribed me the medroxyprogest 10mg. If I take the pills, it will risk my pregnancy.

I feel quite comforted to read I'm not the only one with this problem! i've always had v regular periods, every 32 days, but last month I was 5 days late. This month I started using the Persona hormone testing device that tells you when you ovulate and according to that I ovulated (I could see the blue strips on the stick clearly) on the 2th or so - three weeks ago!!! I'm now on Day 39 of my cycle (no period although I have sore breasts and am grouchy which is what happened last month before coming on). Finally this-morning I did a pregnancy test and it was negative. I really don't think I'm pregant but where in the world has my period gone???
