What Does A Negative Pregnancy Test Look Like
What does a negative pregnancy test look like? Are both lines dark? I took the equate one from walmart (walmart brand) and I was curious if it was a false negative or if it was too early my period isn't due for another 2 weeks
It depends: Each test is different. Most tests show two bars as positive. The package will tell you the best time to take a test. Typically mid void first thing in the morning. The closer to the time of expected next period is best.
When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more
Follow instruction: It's hard to say since different tests have different way to tell you the result. You just need to follow the instruction on the box. If the positive is still light, wait another day and do it again. When in doubt, bring the test to your doc or a pharmacist and they can help interpret the result.
Not necessarily: Did you miss your period? If you are 4-5 days past the due date for your period, you should do the home pregnancy test using first morning urine and following the directions for the test carefully. You may wish to see your doctor for a more sensitive blood test, as soon as one day after a missed period.
Miss a period?: Did you miss a period? Movement in the stomach can be due to gas in the intestine. By the time you feel movement in the stomach from a baby you would be about five months pregnant.
Ignoring neg preg: When you've delivered 1 month ago! Ignoring a negative pregnancy test when you're symptomatic of pregnancy and/or late on your menses can be dangerous because if might be an ectopic pregnancy, which if untreated can have fatal consequences. The moral is, if you feel pregnant and have a negative test seek medical advice.
When was test done?: Recommend waiting until period missed to test, can repeat in a week if still no period. Reasons for missed/late periods: low body weight, obesity, marked weight ^ or v, over-exercise, endurance athletics, breast-feeding, ^ stress, illness, eating disorders (bulimia or anorexia), anovulatory cycle (no egg released), travel, hormone irregularities, drug use, meds (i.e., birth control) or medical >See 1 more doctor answer
See your gyn: If you were my pt in coral springs fl, I would do a quantitative bhcg if it is neg then you are not preg, if it is + then it needs to be followed to see if you have a viable pregnancy or not.
Any time: You can take a pregnancy test after a negative one at any time if you missed your period and/or having symptoms suggestive of one. Ideally, i'd wait a week or even two and do it again, but there's no set time frame in which you must do it.
See below: The only way would be to have a false positive test. One in which the patient is pregnant bu the test is negative. This happens when the directions are not followed correctly.
Yes, very early: A pregnancy test may not be positive until about 14 days after conception. You can be pregnant during this time and not know it. Also in situations where the pregnancy isn't doing well such as an ectopic pregnancy or pending miscarriage, a home pregnancy test can be negative even though you are pregnant. With a few exceptions, such as I've listed, a home pregnancy test is about 97% correct.
HPT not =100%: Although the hpts are quite good and many claim 99% accuracy, which means about 1% false. So, it is possible to have a pregnancy and the test is not picking it up. Have a blood test and/or ultrasound will confirm your suspicion. Consult doc. Good luck.
Wait until period: Missed to test, can re-test in another week if negative.
I took a negative pregnancy test, but I still have this feeling that I'm pregnant, am I testing to early?
Test 3 wks after sex: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), 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, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed.

Pregnancy testing: If you tested before a period is missed then the test result is invalid and you wasted money on it. If you have missed a period then something else must be going on.
