Hello, and thank you for sharing your question with the community.

The best time to take a pregnancy test is right after a missed or irregular period, that way your body has produces enough hCG hormone to be detected.

If the test is negative than your period may have been late for other reasons such as a hormonal imbalance that your body is trying to work out, or perhaps stress, or too little sleep.  Before diagnosing yourself, see what the test results are.  Once you do that, you are able to analyze more clearly why your period was late.

Let us know if you have any more questions along the way.
