Missed period but negative pregnancy tests

My first sign was missed period. I took quite a few store bought pregnancy tests to see if I was, all of them always said negative. Finally got a blood test done, that was positive.


My personal suggestion is to wait until the day after your missed period, at the earliest. If you have very regular cycles, this may be a good time. If it is negative, wait a few more days and try again. If your cycles are not regular, I would suggest waiting a week after you expect your cycle to start.

Getting negative results over and over can be heartbreaking and stressful so the longer you can hold off (close to a week late is good) the better you will be. At that point, you have a better chance of getting a positive test due to an increased hormone level.
