    By the time you are 10 days late, even the cheap preg. tests are highly accurate and should detect the hormone if you are in fact pg. Do you have any other pg symptoms? And have you skipped periods in the past? If all else fails get a blood test done, thats the only way to know for sure and put your mind at ease.

    The one step strips with the blue handle from the UK showed up positive a few days after my other tests were positive with my pregnancy last year so I dont think they are very sensitive even though they are suppost to be.
    I personally would try a different test if you still dont have a answer go in for a blood pregnancy test.
