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!

Hi.  Am turning 43 next month and having been trying for a baby for more than 3 years but no success.  Have been posted to the Middle East and decided to try my luck again.  Took Clomid for more than 4 months, with injections to stimulate ovulation and follicle built-up.  Even tried AI.  No luck!  Had my tubes tested last month and it was found that the left one was completely blocked ..... and that was my best ovary!  However, am 2 weeks overdue .... and I am never late!.  Took 2x HPT which were negative and followed up with blood test ... still negative.  Do not feel signs of monthly starting but feel very tired and irritable and my breasts are sore.  Dr sent me for blood test & results showed LH 6.37 and FSH 6.11 (think latter may be in that I have been taking follicle supplements).  Dr stated that this combination even excluded invitro and sent me off with a sympatheic pat on the back! I wondered if I had perimenopause but don't show the symptons.  Help!

How many days late are you?  If you are, it may still be too early for the HCG level to get detected in a HPT.  Have you thought about getting blood work done?

Some women don't show that they are pregnant in a HPT till they are many weeks far into the pregnancy.  However, try not to stress about it too much (even though I know its difficult) because our minds have a way of playing tricks on us.

I wanted to be pregnant so badly about 5 months ago and had all the symptoms, I didn't even get my AF which is always on time.  Went for blood work and all and thats when I got the definite answer that I wasn't.  The next day AF came along and I was about 9 days late.

Hang in there and the best way to find out is to go to the doctor and check!

Keep me posted!
Hope this helps.
