Retest blood w/ doc: The pregnancy hormone, hcg, rises as the pregnancy grows, and falls if the pregnancy fails. So if you were having a miscarriage, the pregnancy hormone level would drop. There is also such a thing as a "chemical pregnancy" which is a miscarriage that happens so early, that there is never any visible gestational sac by ultrasound. Lastly, you could have a faulty home pregnancy test. Re-test by blood. ...Read more

Trust the test: Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctor's 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

Biochemical Pregnanc: If the test was positive and now lower, it is likely you had a biochemical pregnancy. This may mean that the pregnancy was not normal and would not result in you having a baby. Your body eliminated the tissue. This happens more often than we realize. Still, if it happens to you on more than 2 occasions, it suggests that there may be something else going on and you should talk to your doctor. ...Read more

Technique: Could it be that you did not follow the procedure exactly as recommended by the manufacturer? If you do not read the lines within the prescribed time, the results are not valid. If you have doubt, ask your doctor for blood HCG level. If you missed your period by a 2-3 days and the blood test is negative, pregnancy is unlikely. ...Read more
