Hello powpow989,

Welcome to the EmpowHER community. Thank you for reaching out to us.

Did you test with an early response pregnancy test? Disregard the first test. For the most accurate result, you should test in the morning. Use the first urine of the day when you wake up and use the bathroom. It is concentrated while urine throughout the day is dilute because of drinking fluids.

If you have not gotten a period for one month, contact your gynecologist, who can order a blood pregnancy test to confirm a pregnancy.

Wishing you a positive result,

Hello powpow989,

Just wait and see if it starts. You could reach out to your gynecologist for further advice.
