How accurate are blood tests
It's day 32 today after my last period, so i had a blood test done this morning and it came out negative. How accurate are these blood tests? I can't understand why I haven't got my period yet.

The blood tests are very accurate. Other causes for absent periods are not ovulating, cysts, thyroid problems, stress, changes in diet.
