Could you still be pregnant if a pregnancy test came out negative but your period is 5 days late?

According to a study I read, twin pregnancies, presence of ketones in your urine, and dehydration, amongst other things, may produce a false negative result. It is not that uncommon and the 99% effective rate for pg tests only means that in properly pH balanced urine, pregnancy was accurately detected 99% of the time. That does NOT mean that 99% of all pregnancies are detected. So, my advice is to maybe ask for an ultrasound if you really believ you are pregnant.

It's possible that the test was defective or you haven't produced enough of the hormone for the test to read yet. But it's also possible you are having a late period this month. I am normally very regular with my periods and I was a week late the last two months. And I'm not pregnant. Wait a few more days and take another test. If you still aren't sure or haven't started your period, it might be a good idea to go see a doctor.

Yes. I took a test after 1 week and it was negative, then 2 days later I took another test and there was a faint line there. I took a blood test and it was confirmed that I was pg, but very low hcg's. I don't have my 1st doc's appt. until July 1st,wish me luck!! :)

hi there all just wanted to let you all know i am 2 weeks late on my period i took 4 pregnancy test and all negative but today i decided to buy a more expensive one and it came up posative not saying its the same for everyone but it was for me i thought i was going crazy i just knew i was pregnant but they keeped coming up negative but now i know i was right all along good luck all :)

I went to go get a pregnancy test. it was the day that i had got back from being in foster care. but it came out negative. but my period was last week. and i didn't have a period the weeks after i had the pregnancy test done. but my friends had said that if it came out negative then im pregnant. but i said naw. but folks said that i look pregnant, but im not.

Well, since you have had ALL the pregnancy symptoms and no period, you could be pregnant! But since your home pregnancy test was negative you couldn't be pregnant. You may want to go to your doctor and ask him if you are pregnant.

No you are definitely not pregnant. You will not have a heavy period and be pregnant.

User Avatar

No you can't be pregnant and still have your period. You can have a light bleed but not a period. As for the whole negative test thing, it could be a false negative.

you can not be pregnant at the same time you are having periods.

If you have not missed your period and the pregnancy test is negative, then I would believe you are not pregnant.

User Avatar

If you are on your period and have a negative pregnancy test - then you are not pregnant. You would not feel the fetus move until around the 20 week mark.

I missed a period last month but I have a period now could I still be pregnant?

User Avatar

I am so disappointed..I did three test with clear blue and my test shows negative.its been 7 weeks from my last period date.i do have all the symptoms of being pregnant but still my test is negative

User Avatar

yes you could still be pregnant. My first pregnancy test cam back negative too...and I WAS pregnant! Call your Dr. and have them give you one. or take another one in a couple of weeks if you don't start your period.

User Avatar

You are probably not pregnant, unless you got pregnant after the serum/blood pregnancy test. The HCG that it tests for is zero unless you are pregnant, so negative test, no pregnancy.

User Avatar

I would think not. Period + negative tests for pregnancy is a pretty sure sign that you are no longer pregnant.

User Avatar

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

User Avatar

Yes it is very possible that you could still be pregnant my tests didn't show I was pregnant until I was between 2-3 weeks pregnant

User Avatar

This could be a sign of pregnancy, It would be classed as a very early pregnancy and it would be best to wait until you are next due for your period and if you don't come on and your test is still negative then it is recommended to go to your g.p
