19 Days Menstrual Delay; 3 Pregnancy Test All Negative

I'm 27 years old, My husband is 28 years old. We both have no vices & not into any fertility procedures nor using contraceptive methods, the only thing we do is "pull-out method". I already have a 3 years old daughter from my previous partner. My problem is... I am already 19 days delayed from menstruation. I already did three home pregnancy test, 1st on my 10th day delay, 2nd on my 14th day delay & 3rd is today my 19th day delay; all are done with my 1st morning urine. The results are all negative. My husband and I are not trying to have a child, so psychology-wise we are not hook at it. I am just so confused and irritated at the same time because this never happened to me before, ever. I don't know whether to be concern if I have sickness reproductively, or to be concern that if I am pregnant is it a healthy conception? I'm more worried that if so, is the baby Ok? And if I'm not conceiving, Am I OK? I'm really am confused... Please Help Me! Please shed some light on this... I will deeply appreciate your help. Thank You.

Welcome to ehealthforum,
The urine pregnancy tests done very early in pregnancy can show you false negative results as the kits are calibrated ones, so unless the hormone levels in urine reach a certain level, they do not show positive results. Urine pregnancy test kits usually start showing positive results after about 20 days post-conception (roughly corresponding to about 1 week after your missed/altered periods). If you suspect chances of pregnancy, consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist at the earliest for thorough examination (to confirm pregnancy related changes/signs in body) and blood/serum HCG level test (to confirm/rule out pregnancy accurately). If pregnancy gets confirmed, go ahead with getting serial HCG levels estimated. Doubling up of the hormone levels in 48-72 hours will show that pregnancy is going on smoothly. An ultrasound scan done will also help to confirm gestational age of fetus/baby along with fetal wellbeing and viability. Consider being in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Maintain healthy diet and lifestyle.
Take care.
