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 i'm 24 i'm 14 days late today i've never had a late period so this is unusual for me i've taken 3 test all came back neg. I've been to the doc's he told me to leave it until the end of this week and try it again i'm scared to incase it comes back neg again. I asked for a blood test he told me to wait at least 2 weeks but i can't wait that long. I've had no signs that i'm pregnant except a slight pain in my lower back at night always round about bed time and i would normally get pains a week before my period is coming and i've had none of those signs! Has anyone ever experienced this or have any advice for me?

Hi I am really worried because I am on day 42 of my cycle and I still have no period.  My husband and I were planning on starting next month TTC so this month we only had protected sex (and not very much of it at all) so I find it hardly unlikely that I am pregnant....but then where is my period?  I have done several things this month that would make it veyr unhealthy for me to be pregnant right now...but could they also be causes for my missed period?  I went to a party where I had four vodka shots and I have been drinking wine with dinner almost every night...things I was planing to not do at all starting next month.  I also competed in a Tough guy competition which involves climbing obstacles, swiming in disgusting muddy water and flinging myself over things.  I also donated bloodon day 15...woudl this cause me not to ovulate???  Any answers are much appreciated...thank you.
