hpts are fairly reliable. but sometimes your hcg levels arent high enough. it took me about a week and a half to get a positive hpt. you could either wait a few more days and test, or get a blood test which will tell you for sure.
you could be pregnant. it could be pms. you could be getting sick or something. it could be a number of things.
you said youve been busy and usually when people are very busy they are usually stressed. so possibly thats why your periods late as well
Hi Kim, thank you for the response. I will follow your advice and wait to take another HPT if my period doesn't show up...I suppose if it isn't here within a week I will make an app. with my doc to get a blood test done. I have read that stress can cause missed or delayed periods so that could be a possibility as well. Not knowing what's going on is the real kicker. :-) Thank you again and I will keep you posted once I find out anything certain.
I would agree with Kim......what type of hpt did you use? Some are better than others.
Have you started a new exercise regimen? That can also cause a delay. Stress can DEFINITELY do that to you. Keep us informed.
I used the EPT, I think it is the First Response. It said on the package can test 6 days before missed period. I haven't started any new exercise regimen. As far as stress goes, it doesn't seem I've been any stressed than usual..but then again I may not be realizing it. Thank you for all your help. I will keep you informed. Hopefully my period will show up soon.
just a piece of advise! i would seriously ignore everybody else! i am somebody who knows too well that it could take upto 8 weeks b4 u get a positive! as far as im concerned hpts r really cr*p these days! with my first pregnancy i was 8 weeks late b4 i got a positive and 6 weeks preg! this time round i was 6 weeks late before i got a positive and im now nearly10 weeks preg! had ascan and everythin is fine. fair enough it could be stress etc but dont give up on thinking u may not be preg! my dads gf told me that her mate was 9/10 weeks late b4 she got a positive result! id wait anothr week but another suggestion is ask the doc for a blood test! how late are you anyway? wb x
ok whatever.....mostly everyone gets a postive hpt within a least 2 weeks. get a blood test and that will tell you for sure.
Hi everyone! I just wanted to stop in and say that you for all your comments and putting my mind at ease. My period started (about 3 weeks late) but better late than never, I suppose! Again that you all. :-)
Thank you for keeping us informed and accepting our feedback, that's what the forum is all about.
