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

No but antibiotics can cause your birth control to fail.

If you missed a period and you have taken 3 pregnancy tests that are all negative, you are probably wondering what is going on. Many factors can cause you to have a missed period such as stress, overexertion, certain medication and a change in lifestyle. You may want to make an appointment to see your doctor if you miss another period.

if you are feeling no symptoms and your pregnancy tests are turning out negative i would advise you to see your doctor. he/she will then be able to carry out tests to determine whether or not you are pregnant and rule out any problems

The at-home pregnancy tests are not 100% accurate. Consult your gynecologist.

Most pregnancy tests are accurate day one of your missed period, if your test is negative retake it in 3 to 7 days.

Pregnancy tests are not 100% accurate, but being that it was negative and you got your period, I'd say you are definitely not pregnant.

Medical tests are never 100% certain. They can give a false positive, and a false negative result. You are asking about the possibility of a falsely negative result from a pregnancy test. These tests provide less certain results, the earlier in a pregnancy that they are taken. A sensible insurance is a retest. Yes. Usually you are suppose to take a pregnancy tests as soon as you miss your period.

Yes, because blood tests detect pregnancy earlier than urine tests do.

It depends on what kind of pregnancy test you take. Some tests will label their tests as "Results 5 days before missed period" or somethin similar. This means that they are capable of detecting pregnancy four days before your missed period. But keep in mind that each day further away from your "expected period" the test will be less accurate. False negative pregnancy tests are much more common that false positive pregnancy tests. So if you get a negative result four days before your expected period, that may not always mean you are not pregnant.

Yes. Home administered pregnancy tests can be administered wrong and lead to a false negative result.

User Avatar

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

User Avatar

I would def take more tests if I were you and do it at a clinic. The home pregnancy tests can give a false negative but not a false positive.

User Avatar

medications w/ certain hormones can cause false positives or negatives. and certain pregnancy tests are better than others. i recommend seeing a dr.

User Avatar

It could be just stress delaying your period, but if all tests are negative than that's a good indication that it's not pregnancy. Call your doctor, they may be able to give you a prescription to get your period going if you are truly not pregnant. ~pawsalmighty

pregnancy tests can give false positives and false negatives, meaning, they screw up too. so take a couple of pregnancy tests then see a doctor. yes My sister's friend had her period the whole time she was pregnant.
