i took 8 tests and the 9th finally said i was pregnant.it took seven weeks. (i kept taking them cuz i pretty much knew i was pregnant i just needed to see it to believe it) the doctor said that sometimes some women dont produce alot of the pregnancy hormones that cause a test to work. go to the doctir cuz their tests are better. but if you feel that you are dont drink or smoke.

def. go to the dr. 17 days late you would definitely be able to get a positive result from a pregnancy test. and make sure they do a blood test- not just urine. with my last one i took a home test and it said i was pregnant, so i went to the dr. and they did a urine and it said negative. i wasn't convinced so i went back the next day and had them do a blood test. needless to say i was pregnant afterall.

I have had irregular periods my whole life. Like so irregular that when I was 2-3 weeks late and I did a home pregnancy test and it came out positive I was stunned and didn't believe it at first. When my doctor did a urine test and it came out positive I didn't believe it still. Finally, when he did a blood test I believed it for sure. So...get a blood test if you wanna be 100% sure. If it turns out that you're just late and not pregnant...it's okay, not the end of the world...the next time you get your period you could plan when would be the best time to conceive :) Good luck.

Seeing as this thread was opened in 2009, I would assume that the OP now knows fairly definitively as to whether or not she was pregnant. Thanks for contributing, everybody!

Quoting Rochelle:

Thanx everyone for the help i want to be pregnant because my son is 2 now so i think it would be great to give him a brother or sister. i have had 2 miscarrages in the past so i have the mind set that what if i can't get pregnant? Whats wrong with me? So yeah i have been a lil stressed about not getting pregnant but i try not to let it get the best of me. I just pray that i am pregnant. With my son i took a home prego test and it popped up positive so if i am pregnant this is going to be different. lol



Well then I hope congratulations are in order!  Good luck! :)  I also agree with Kate, go to the doctor right away.  No point in sitting around wondering.

wait...........give it another couple of weeks then test again


No, she shouldn't wait. A woman's menstrual cycle may and often does vary from month to month to up to as much as 7 days difference. SEVENTEEN days difference in menstrual cycles is a sign that something is amiss and a doctor should be seen.

my mother in law is a midwife. when i found out i was pregnant she said there were ALOT of hpt coming back negative. (mine was positive) my fiancee and i went down to confirm it. i got the same result. i hear alot of hpt comeing out inaccurately. Also if you worry yourself or what not, you can have a false pregnancy by fearing, wishing, hoping, ect. and you can actually show signs of pregnancy and not be pregnant. When i was 13 i was raped and thought for months i was pregnant becuase i feared that i was. I wasn't pregnant but i showed signs of being pregnant. To be on the safe side i would go to the Drs and get a test from them.

at 17 days late it should be long enough for a test at home to come back accurate. but if it comes back negative and you havnt started wait another week and it should come back correct then. but if your like me, ive only had one baby test positive on a home test and this one is number 6 for me. i tested negative at 5 months with my first one. (my friend figured we would use me a s a control subject in an experiment.) but they are not perfectly accurate for all people. many things can make you late like high stress. do you want to be? are you hoping? just curious. do keep us posted. hope this helps.

Go to the doctor, what else would you do?
Unless you have a magic eight ball lying around...they are really quite reliable.

I was 1-4 days late with both my pregnancies and had very low hormones with my first. Your body might not be producing HCG at high levels for some reason or there could be things in your life affecting you being late. It is Christmas time so maybe the stress of it is getting to you? Go to the DR to get them to order blood work. I had to have blood wrok done to confim my first as my HPT were very very light lines. I had blood wrok done 2 days after i did a HPT and the hormones were so low i had to go back every 2 days fro blood wrok until i was 9 weeks...so 3 weeks after i found out.

Good luck!

Hmm. Well there could be a number of reasons your period is late///like stress, I would wait another week and if still no period take another test or go to the doctor.

I'd wait and see because sometimes periods can b irregular if you are under stress or anythin else. if u really really cant wait go to the doctor! good luck x
