Yes it can. This happens because: * You tested too early. * You did not conceive when you ovulated but at a later date. * You do not have enough HCG in your urine. * You are not pregnant. See your doctor for a blood test.

If you took a pregnancy test after a missed period and it was negative, then you are probably not pregnant. Of course, there is always a chance you're pregnant even if a test came back negative, but it is unlikely. If you want to be absolutely certain, visit your doctor's office and ask them to test for pregnancy with a blood test instead of a urine test. Then you will know for sure.

It is possible to experience bleeding during early pregnancy. However a normal period like bleed is usually not related to pregnancy.

Is it possible to be pregnant and not have a positive pregnancy test?

It is possible to take a pregnancy test and have it not show up as positive even though you are pregnant. If you have take the test too soon it will show up as negative. They have a new test out that detects the pregnancy 5 days before your missed period. Even that could appear negative if takent too soon if you know when your next period might be try to schedule it around then, even if that one appears negative there is two tests in the box and you can take another on after a few more days. Though pregnancy tests are usually accurate they do not make up for a doctors examination. You may have taken an pregnancy test and have had it be negative and a few weeks down the road you are for sure pregnant, this could be due to hormone levels being off when the test was taken. So if you have taken the test and it was negative and you feel you might be pregnant just watch for the common signs nobody knows your body better than you do.
