    Late Period but Negative Pregnancy Test

    I'm about a week late and have taken 2 at home tests which both came back negative. I can tell that my body is a bit "off" (am really tired, my stomach has been weird, etc).
    Is it possible that I'm pregnant but my hcg levels aren't showing up on the at home test??
    Any suggestions??

    from what I've heard and read, it is possible you are pregnant.
    Some women take awhile to build up the hormone.

    I would suggest either waiting another week OR, if you just can't wait, make a doctor's appointment to get a blood test.

    good luck

    I agree with @LoveBird79, that happened to me...my levels were low and I was 3 months before I was able to find out. My doctor told ,me that the test couldnt pick the hormone but I was indeed pregnant. So maybe a blood test would be best.
