Hello,

If your periods have been regular of 28-30 days then the test should be positive.Some women may require few more days if their cycle have been longer.

Even in your case there could be a late ovulation which is not showing a positive.One way to get over this confusion would be to get a blood pregnancy done which is very sensitive and can show positive even before a missed period.

If these tests are negative then there could be other causes for this delay like excessive stress or heavy excersise or a hormonal imbalance.

I hope I have been able help you.

Please feel free to ask for any clarifications.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
