I haven't had to do this for such a long time so it's totally confusing me.

My cycle is always 25/26 days. I had sex on day 18 of my cycle and now my period is 4 days late. I have now obviously missed my period and know that the tests say you can test from day 1 of the missed period but if I am indeed pregnant would it not be too early as I can't have conceived until having sex at day 18? or will the hormones needed be present at a high enough level now?

I just don't want to get a false negative.

You should be able to test and have an accurate results. There are tests out now that can detect low amounts of the HCG and even get a positive result before a missed period. Good luck!
