    It's possible you're just having a random cycle where you ovulated later. Do you track ovulation with temping? The most common reason for a late period are late ovulation, pregnancy, stress or a huge change in diet/exercise/weight.
    It's less likely your luteal phase has randomly altered its length, more likely your follicular phase altered.
    Could also be late implantation, sometimes it doesn't happen until 13dpo, and a hpt won't detect hCG for at least two to four days after this happens and it can take quite a few days to implant fully, so it could also be this. If you don't see af in a few days retest, if it's still negative but no sign of af arriving, perhaps ask for a beta in case your tests aren't liking your pee. Also ICs aren't always reliable. They usually are, but sometimes you get a random batch which are rubbish. If you look at reviews on Amazon there are quite a few where they had negative ICs but positives on more expensive brands, so it's worth trying out a different brand of test too, but I would use a pink dye rather than blue

    I had cm with a smear of blood 6 days ago but no symptoms n Iím sure a test would have shown positive by now, will put it down to stress n will why a better test at the weekend if AF stays away

    Late but negative

    Are you definite on when you ovulated?
    If blood was from implantation then bear in mind it can take at least five days sometimes longer, to implant fully so a test may not show anything yet. Most of the time implantation seems to happen a little faster than this, otherwise there wouldn't be women seeing positives early, but I wouldn't rule pregnancy out yet.

    Ah right, could be later ovulation then. Isn't unheard of and is usually the reason for a 'late' period with no positive test, but also this doesn't mean you won't see a positive, it just means you probably ovulated later than you thought which means a test would show later or your period would be later than expected
