Blood Test: Home pregnancy tests are usually accurate anytime after you miss a period. False negatives can happen but are not very common and usually are related to a problem with the pregnancy. The best way to be absolutely sure its not a false negative is to see a doc and get a blood pregnancy test. Best wishes!

Blood test.: Get a blood pregnancy test from your gynecologist. This would be the most accurate way.

If you took the: pregnancy test a week or more after you missed your period - and all of them were negative - then a false negative would be very unlikely.

Less than 10 percent: Preg test hcg, produced after fertilized egg attaches to uterine wall (6-12 days after ovulation). The soonest preg test is + is 7days. 90% of woman will be positive one day after missed period, and 10% will still be negative even though they are pregnant.
