Hey.. My last period was on August 17th and me and my boyfriend have had unprotected sex quite a few times that month before and after my period.. my period is usually late but by a month but last month it was only late by 4 days. it’s 9 days late this month (September) and I have had a lot of symptoms like nausea and sore breasts. I took a pregnancy test 5 days before my expected period and it came out negative. Did I take it too early? Could I be pregnant?

Yes, taking a home pregnancy test 5 days before your expected period would be too early. Some HPT packages “boast” that they may be able to detect hCG before your period begins. However, I’ve found that, to obtain the most accurate results (and not have to repeatedly buy a million HPTs because the first ones may not have worked), it’s best to wait until the day when your next expected period should have ended. Why don’t you take another one tomorrow morning (with your concentrated urine) and let us know the results.
