    3 Days Late & Negative HPT

    Asked Mar 23, 2007, 03:39 PM 30 Answers
    Hello everyone... Since the beginning of this year, I have been Trying to conceive #3. I am 35 years old. The last day of my period was Feb 21 and have regular cycles (28 day). I have been using OPK to determine when I ovulate and BD on the most fertile days. About 5 days ago I felt my period was coming (cramping & very sore breasts), it lasted about 4 days... then just went away. Now I have slightly sore breasts and no signs of AF. I have taken HPT's (early pregnancy test from internet & early first response) and they were negative. Since I am 3 days late and have negative HPTs... should I just assume that the tests are correct and that I am not pregnant? Or should I wait a little longer and test again?. Any help and/or advice you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

    You need to wait and test again! I just found out on Tuesday that I am pregnant (6 weeks tomorrow). It took up until I was 10 days late before I got a positive, and on first response it was faint, but clearly visible. Then went to the doctor's and their test was very faint. Anyway, it can take up to 7-10 days past missed period before you get a positive. If you are only 3 days late I would wait 3-4 days and test again. If that's still negative test again in 3 days. If that is still negative, you can either wait it out and retest, or go to your doctor for a blood test. Good luck! Hope it comes out positive!

    Just try to find something to keep you occupied for the next week or so. I thought I would go crazy, but I managed to stay sane. You can do it! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. Let us know what you find out.

    It helped me to set a day that I would allow myself to test again, say... you are only allowed to test again on Friday. That might help.

    Well today I am 5 days late and I just started to see very, very little brown discharge when I wipe. So I am assuming that AF is on its way (even though all my symptoms have gone away), because I don't think implantation can occur so late I am sad but I know there's always next month

    No I haven't been this late before... thats why it is so strange to me. I did have some symptoms of my period coming but they all went away and I don't have any symptoms now... I feel as if my period has ended (very strange huh?). My breasts were really sore before but it all went away... so Im really confused right now. If I am going to get my period how soon should it start?
