Hi everyone I am now 6 days late on my period which is not like me at all, I have done a £1 pregnancy test strip 2 in a pack done both and they came up negative do you think they are not very reliable?? Just wondering why I'm still on on!? Thanks X

Have you been trying? Maybe wait a day or two and try again.

Did you do a morning urine test?
Do you have any idea when ovulation occurred?
Negative tests could be due to low hormone levels and turn positive later.
Can you invest in a better test (and do morning urine)?

I did it this morning 1st wee lol From looking back we had sex twice 14 and 15 days after 1st day of last period? X

Sometimes ovulation can be delayed (and make your period late) by stress or illness. I'm 5 days late today myself and 100% not pregnant!
When we were ttc I used the cheapo dip strips (from eBay) to test and they were just as reliable as expensive tests. Not much you can do other than wait and see and try again tomorrow. Are you hoping for a positive?

I don't mind either way just annoying me that I'm this late and can't think of anything other than that now and whether the strips were not very good X

The cheap ones are just as good as, if not more sensitive than, expensive tests. The NHS uses the cheap ones.

I got my positive with cheapy tests.

The cheap tests are every bit as good as more expensive tests.

I'd try a Superdrug Early test. I got my positive 8 days past conception with one. The cheap strip tests were barely showing anything at two weeks late.

My March period was 9 days late. I'm never ever late. I think sometimes late periods just happen for some reason. 😕
