Is It Possible I Am Pregnant If I Get A Negative Result On A Home Pregnancy Test
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

A woman can repeat the test if she did the first test too early, such as less than two weeks after conception. ...Read more

Pregnancy tests: 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.

A correctly done urine test gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have happened) 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. ...Read more
After missed period: You should do the test 4-5 days after a missed period. if the result is negative repeat the test in 5-4 days, unless you get a period by then. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

So yes it is possible, the false positive rate is quite low on most home pregnancy tests, but the false negative rate is not quite so low. ...Read more

Had sex 4 months ago. If I take a home pregnancy test tomorrow next morning, is it possible for a false negative result? Want to be sure with it now.
Life is not exact: All lab tests have the possibility of false positive and false negative results. That is the nature of our existence on Earth. The answer to "Is it possible..." is often YES, but the answer is not helpful. The real question to ask is "How likely is it..." So, the real answer is NOT LIKELY. In real life, a woman who is 4 months pregnant should have plenty of bodily changes that say "pregnancy". ...Read more
