When should I take another pregnancy test ?

Hi, Well recently my youngest sister started her period for the first time, I live in a house hold with all women. Is it possible shes the reason why I am late? I am indeed sexually active, but I ALWAYS, use protections and check every condom. I took a " first response " pregnancy test and it came out (-) but I still haven't started? Is it possible that she threw me off? or can stress have an effect? I'm soo stressed with work, school, bills and my ill mother. and when should I take another test ?

Stress is the reason most of the times for the late periods after pregnancy turning out negative. Hence you can wait for one week to 10 days till you see the response / period. Get a pregnancy test done after one week though sometimes they turn positive late.

Thank you. I am a little worried, because I only recently started counting my periods and haven't really had a (28 day) or (30 day) window. Today will be 31, and still haven't started.. I plan to take another test this sunday. But I am really stressed, so stressed I can't think of anything else.. thank you.
