Urgent....Need to know when
My period is about 6 days late, which is unusual since I have had a normal 28 day cycle since going off the contraceptive pill about a year ago. I am sexually active, but we usually use condoms only near to ejaculation. I have done three home pregnancy tests. One when I was three days late, again at four days late and again at five days late. All three came out negative. Could I still be pregnant, and when is the right time to test after missing your period.

You have tested at the right time. I would suggest that you see a doctor and have a blood test done. If this is negative, he/she can check for other causes.
