Yes, because there may not be enough of the pregnancy hormone present in your body and urine as of yet.

For some women even a week after a missed period can even be to early to detect pregnancy hormones. Also hpt doesnt always work. sometimes you have to take blood test to determine if you are pregnant. Take the test and it is negative try again in another week.

Sometimes your body will take awhile for a pregnancy test to come back positive. If you continue to not have a period, you should still check for pregnancy. A pregnancy test is most likely to show positive after your normal period time has come and gone.

If you have not actually had your period it is still possible. Pregnancy tests measure hormones, which might not be high enough the first time the test is taken. If you took the test to soon but still have not experienced a normal period, you may want to take another test.
