    It could be my pc screen but I can't see much of a line there (especially for 5 days late) - could you try a more responsive test, maybe a digital or a FRER?
    I know blood tests have a minimum hcg to be counted as positive (if it's qualitative rather than quantitative) so you could perhaps have implanted late and be in the very early stages of pregnancy but not have released enough hcg into your system to count as positive on a blood test.

    I'm on my phone and can see a faint line.
    Can you take the tests to your doctor and request another blood test?

    I can see a line, but I'm guessing as you're on 2 types of birth control. A positive's not what you're hoping for??

    Perhaps wait another week and request another blood test if still getting +ve's?
