    There are a couple of reasons why you miss your period and also a negative test:

    1) A low probability is that the test is not that effective as it is suppose to be because of a low quality of sensitivity. It means that test is capable of detecting pregnancy only when the level of hCG reaches a certain threshold. BUY another test.

    2) Make sure you do not drink fluids before taking the test because it may not detect the amount of hCG present in the urine. HOLD your urine several minutes, even hours before collecting a sample.

    However if you are not pregnant there are also reasons why you miss your period:

    1) You may be starting with irregular cycles. Relax and do not get stress.

    2) Last reason talk to your doctor.
