You will get a positive result if you are pregnant even after a tubal ligation. A pregnancy test tests for the Human Chorionic Gonadotropin Hormone. Or more commonly known as the HCG level. You could have a negative result and still be pregnant if it is too soon and your HCG level is too low. It does not happen often but there have been cases where woman have indeed become pregnant after a tubal ligation. Your best bet is to go see your doctor and get a blood test done. They are the most accurate even in the early stages of a pregnancy.

Why would a pregnancy test not give you either answer?

A pregnancy test can only give you "a negative result" (probably not pregnant) or "a positive result" which indicates the likelihood of pregnancy. Only a blood test or physical examination can confirm a positive result (definitely pregnant). There are some conditions which have pregnancy symptoms, and very rare conditions under which pregnancy is not immediately detectable after fetal development begins.

If you are pregnant can a pregnancy test turn out to be negative even after 4 days of missed period?

No. A pregnancy test will not result into negative unless it is sure that you aren't pregnant.

A pregnancy test detects the HCG in our urine and that is the positive result.AnswerThat is not true. I had 3 pregnancy tests come up negative and was Pregnant. Sometimes its just too early for a test to pick up the HCG.
