Probably not: Pregnancy tests are very reliable. If you have had a negative pregnancy test and are not sure about the results, take another test in a week. If you think you are pregnant or are planning pregnancy you should take Folic Acid everyday. Taking Folic acid prior to pregnancy and during every early pregnancy helps prevent some birth defects. Other questions should be submitted separately. Read more
