    With all these multiple negative home pregnancy tests, it is unlikely you are pregnant unless you've simply been testing too early.

    Wait another two weeks and if no menstrual period, test again.

    If still negative then it's likely you've simply skipped ovulating this month and that is why you've not had a menstrual period.
