Repeat in a day: Just repeat the test in a day or two. If you are pregnant the hormone will rise and the test will be clearly positive. If you are not pregnant it won't show up.

In the package it will likely have an image of a positive and a negative test result. Read the instructions and follow them exactly as directed.

The: The purpose of the "negative" line is to help evaluate how accurate the test is in the first place. If you cannot see it, then the test might be faulty and you should take another one. Good luck!

Re-test in few days.: The concentration and amount of your urine on the strip may affect the intensity of line appearing in the result section. It you can see the line as negative, it is highly likely negative, as these home tests are quite good/accurate. If in doubt, you can retest in a few days... Good luck...

What could cause a false negative for a pregnancy test?

What could cause a false negative for a pregnancy test?

See below: The test is past its expiration date; you took the test the wrong way; you tested too soon; your urine is too diluted because you consumed large amounts of fluid right before the test; you are taking certain medications, such as diuretics or antihistaminics. If you are still concerned you may see your doctor for a blood test. Http://www. Webmd. Com/baby/guide/pregnancy-tests.

What are the odds of a false negative uring pregnancy test?

What are the odds of a false negative uring pregnancy test?

Minimal: The pregnancy tests currently available are quite accurate. The earlier in the pregnancy that the test is done, the more likely to have a pregnancy hormone level too low to detect - but by the time of a missed period the false negatives would be less than 2%.

Repeat test: If you had sex since your last period, you may wish to repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD. Consult this site for more information on this topic. Http://www. Nichd. Nih.

Is it possible to have a false negative on a pregnancy test? If so what causes them

Testing too soon: Many people test for pregnancy way before the test could be valid. If one tests before a missed period the test is completely invalid if negative and has to be repeated when it is done after the period is delayed.

I took a pregnancy test an it was positive. I took another one an it was negative. Why is that?

I took a pregnancy test an it was positive. I took another one an it was negative. Why is that?

Not easy to tell why: There are several factors which can interfere with the accuracy of a "urine" pregnancy test and give false positive or false negative results. If you need to be sure, the more reliable test is a Blood BetaHCG measurement.

Confidence: On the day that you would expect your period by urine pregnancy test can be over 90% predictive of whether or not you are pregnant. However, keep in mind these tests are not perfect. It is always good to get a second opinion from a primary care provider if you continue to have doubts for further testing.

If you are a week late is it possibles to be pregnant 2 pregnancy test negatives what would be the symptoms of being pregnant?

Could be...: It is possible to have negative pregnancy tests and still be pregnant especially if they are home based tests. If it is an early pregnancy this is a possibility. For confirmation you would probably need a blood test if you are very suspicious of being pregnant. The most common symptom is lack of or abnormal period, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, breast soreness, to mention the most common.
