Hello there,
I used an ovulation kit which showed I was ovulating on october 7th & 8th both days my husband and I had intercourse. My period was scheduled on October 16th. It is now officially 3 days late. I took a home pregnancy test a day before my period due date and I also took a test yesterday oct 17th both times it came out very negative.

But, I'm 3 days late I feel weird in the stomach area I'm not sure what to do.
Any help will be appreciated.
Thank you so much!

Hello D

Thank you for writing.

To increase your chances of pregnancy, have sex every other day from about days 10 to days 18 or so, as sperm lives in a woman's body for up to 5 days.
Since you are late, there is still a chance of pregnancy. Some women don't show up pregnant on urine tests straight away. My advice is to test again in a couple of days and if negative again, you may just be late. An alternative is to get blood test at your doctor's office which will let you know immediately.
Good luck - I hope you have success soon!
