Yes. Sometimes pregnancy tests are not 100% correct. Even if the second test comes out negative I would recommend that you go see your doctor. They can just give you a pregnancy test there and then you will know for sure. :)

What is wrong if you have a lot of pregnancy symptoms but a negative pregnancy test?

You should get a pregnancy test at the doctor's office. A positive on those tests you can do at home are always correct, but you can in fact get a false negative. Usually these tests are pretty accurate if you take them correctly. If you really wanna make sure, get a another test done. But maybe you think you're pregnant and your symptomps could be explained by something else. To ease your mind, take another test. good luck!

Can a pregnancy test give a false negative if you don't pee on the stick long enough?

YES! Every pregnancy test is different and if the instructions are not followed 100% then there is a chance you could read a false negative. I suggest taking another test and if that dos not give you a conclusive answer or you are still unsure if the test is correct, consult your doctor for a blood test.
