My period is 3 days late, but the tests say negative.
My periods are either early or on time, NEVER late!

Why are the tests showing negative? xx

My first reaction is to ask you how old you are. My periods have always been so regular you could almost set your watch by them. I notice that the older I get (I'm 40) the more often they are sometimes "off". It still doesn't happen often. They are still very normal and regularly timed, for the most part. But every now and then, one will be a few days early. Then months later, one will be a few days late. The early doesn't worry me nearly as much as the late lol

Dont worry about that I had negative tests with both my sons. Wait a few more days and then test again with the first pee of the day. If there is still a negative result then it is likely you are not pregnant.

A quick internal by the doctor can tell straight away at 5 weeks as your cervix will be the size of an orange.

I think you have to wait at least 5 days after a missed period. Also, I have been told to do the pregnancy test at your first bathroom break in the morning. That is when the pregnancy hormone is the strongest. FYI: when I was pregnant with my 2nd child, I was over 2 months pregnant and the test showed negative. When I was 9 months pregnant, it still showed negative...not for sure why. It showed the same on my 3rd child as well...so if you think you are pregnant and the test comes back neg..just go in and get checked. Good Luck!

It can happen that they show a false negative. Go to the doctor and get a blood test.
