Can I Be Pregnant And Get A Negative Pregnancy Test
When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks.

Yes: This phenomena is quite common in early ectopic pregnancies measured by home pregnancy tests. The HCG levels are not high enough to trigger the threshold of positive in over the counter tests. However, in uterine pregnancies, the test will eventually convert to positive.(normal pregnancies). ...Read more
I got a negative pregnancy test and im convinced im pregnant can home pregnancy not always be right or detect pregnancy early?
Pregnancy testing: If you tested before a period is missed then the test result is invalid and you wasted money on it. If you have missed a period then something else must be going on. ...Read more
Maybe: If you have regular periods and if you tested sufficiently late in the cycle, it wouldn't be very likely because the tests are mostly reliable. Otoh if you tested early or cycles are unpredictable it's definitely a chance. I'd suggest testing again in a day or two before taking too many other steps. ...Read more
Neg test = not preg: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more
Trust the test: The first step is to repeat a home pregnancy test. They are quick, reliable and easy to do. If the test is negative then you are not pregnant. In that case you can monitor the cycle over the next few days and schedule a visit with an obgyn to discuss. If the pregnancy test is positive then you will need to see an obgyn soon to be evaluated. ...Read more
Rarely: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate and not affected by foods, herbs, common illnesses, sexually transmitted diseases, or medications. A correctly done urine test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon. If worried, can test one more time next week. ...Read more
False negative: False negative home pregnancy tests certainly occur. If suspect that this may be the case, may repeat the test the next day with another urine home pregnancy kit. If still negative (indicating probably accurate) but still suspect pregnancy, may notify your gyn who may obtain a serum pregnancy test, which is much more accurate. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: If you are very early, generally less than 5 weeks, a home pregnancy test may not be positive. Waiting a few days and rechecking it, as long as you aren't experiencing pain or abnormal bleeding, is usually ok. Otherwise, you can go to your doctor to get a blood sample drawn to check a serum pregnancy test which is very accurate. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Definitely: You may get a negative home pregnancy test if you are very early or if there is a problem with the pregnancy, and a blood test will be more sensitive. Home tests tend to be adjusted to give false negative rather than false positive results. Also, test first thing in the morning when your urine tends to be most concentrated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: One cannot have a normal regular period and be pregnant. Having a normal period means not pregnant. A negative urine pregnancy test might be a false-negative if the test is done too early (such as in the first few days after fertilization). However, having both a regular period and a negative urine test definitely means not pregnant. But, she could get pregnant a few days after this period ends. ...Read more
