    Have you taken a pregnancy test recently? Are you using your first-morning urine? Using uring that has been held for at least 5 hours (and not over diluted by drinking 55 gallons of water
     
    ) is your best bet to get an accurate at-home result.

    There have been some women who have never tested positive at home but have tested positive by beta hCG blood test so that might be your bet if your period doesn't show up or if you get another negative pregnancy test.

  • I agree - get a blood test.
