That being said, typically negative urine preg means not pregnant, the only way to be sure is to see your doctor and have a beta quantitative HCG blood test. Best of luck. ...Read more

Hormonal imbalance: You may repeat the test in 3-4 days, if you do not get a period by then. 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.

Can i get a negative pregnancy test (clear blue) three days before expected period and still be pregnant.

Yes: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. ...Read more

No period three days past expected period and a negative pregnancy test could I still be pregnant?

Possibly: Have you always been regular? what kind of pregnancy test did you have done? was it an over the counter home pregnancy test? Some can provide false negative results. I would recommend repeating it. If it is still negative then I would just wait a little longer and see if your period resumes. If that does not happen then it is time for you to have your doctor order a serum(blood) pregnancy test. ...Read more
