False negatives are usually caused by testing too early. Either you are testing too soon before your period is due, or you had an irratic cycle and ovulated late and it's just too early to pick up the pregnancy hormone. Some women online have taken multiple tests and gotten negatives, then later got a positive.. it was just too early.

It is likely that you are pregnant. It is possible to have false negative results, but unlikely to have a false positive.

No, low hCG hormone causes a negative pregnancy test.

If you took a pregnancy test too early, you could have a false negative. There are seldom false positive's though.

No. Benadryl does not cause false negative pregnancy test.
