Can you skip a period after getting off birth control and still get a negative pregnancy test?

Probably not. If you have been off the pill for a month and took a pregnancy test that was negative, you are probably not pregnant. If you haven't had a period yet, talk to your doctor. You may need to get some medication to get your period started again. Occasionally some women need that.

It is very common to skip a period after getting off birth control. It happens more frequently than not. It is because it takes your system a few months to get back to normal. The longer you were on the pill, the longer it might take for your periods to resume normally. Many women get off the pill because they want a child and time and again they wonder why negative test and no period.... very common. Give it a few months.

did you try different pregnancy tests? I would. If they all say negative...go to a doctor.

No, a period and a negative HPT (used at the appropriate time) indicates no pregnancy.

no, your period does not affect the accuracy of a pregnancy test ~pawsalmighty

when in doubt, assume you are pregnant. then take a urine pregnancy test, and if that is negative. then you can also check by getting a blood pregnancy test.
