I'm Sure you get lots of posts like this, but feel on my own at the moment! My period is now 6 days late, yesterday I used a clear blue test (normal not digital) it came back as negative, could it be wrong? Still no period today it's a box of 3 so should I retest or am I wasting my time?

If your period is 6 days late you would expect a fairly accurate result. It's possible that you are pregnant but ovulated very late. It's also possible that you didn't ovulate or you ovulated late and did not conceive.

I would wait a few days and test again if your period has not started. All tests are pretty good. It won't be an error with the test but they all have their limitations. If you scroll down the conception topic, there are several threads each week with people having a late period and negative tests. This shows how common it is. It's also frustrating and disheartening.

Good luck.
