It is possible that you are pregnant and the test has not shown up yet, or just that your period is late.

I would wait a few days and do another pregnancy test or go to a local clinic or centre to get a test done for you.

It would be worth going to a clinic and getting a reliable contraception if you are not pregnant and not planning to be.

If you need more help in accessing these services or just want to talk your situation through, confidentially, please get in touch with a pregnancy choices centre near you.
