you can take a home pregnancy test as soon as you think you are late from your period. if you think that you are pregnant but the test proved not and you still have the symptoms then you should maybe take another test as there is no harm in this. if still this proves negative and symptoms still persist then you should contact your doctor.

Can a pregnancy test be negative with an ectopic pregnancy?

Although the chances are slim with a urine test performed at a doctor's office, it still can be possible to receive a negative result early in an ectopic pregnancy. If you used a home test the chances are slightly higher. If you think it is possible that you are experiencing an ectopic pregnancy, you need to go to the doctor or health department.

Can you get a false negative pregnancy test?

Although most pregnancy tests are quite reliable nowadays, it's always possible that the result is incorrect. To have more certainty, repeat the test a couple of times and if possible, with another brand of pregnancy test, if all these tests give a negative result, it's very probable (I would say 99%) that the person is not pregnant, but to be 100% sure, you can always pay a visit to a doctor or so.

Is it possible to conceive eventhough the fertility chart says you were not fertile or ovulating at the time?

If the question is, "Is it possible to conceive without ovulating?" then the answer is no. However, if the question is, "Is it possible to miss the subtle signs of ovulation and fertility even when charting one's cycle?" then the answer is certainly yes. If you are wondering about pregnancy, take a home pregnancy test. (Most home pregnancy tests can detect the pregnancy hormone two weeks after ovulation, or on the first day of your missed period.) If it is negative and you still haven't gotten your period a week later, repeat the test. If the either test is positive, or if the second test is negative but you still haven't gotten your period, contact your healthcare provider.

Is it possible to have pregnancy symptoms but home test say negative?

Hello. Yes it is possible to have pregnancy symptoms and have a negative pregnancy test. If you are pregnant the test is probably coming out negative because you dont have enough HCG in your system or you have tested too early. The best thing to do is see your doctor for a Beta HCG Quantitative pregnancy blood test. This test will tell you without a doubt if you are pregnant or not. Its the most accurate pregnancy test available and you must see your doctor for this test. Good luck. Recommend me if I have helped you.

Can you be pregnant if you take 2 pregnancy tests the first one is positive the second negative?

I would go to the doctor for a blood test to be sure, but I don't see why it couldn't be possible. Sometimes there are errors with home pregnancy tests, and sometimes they are incorrect. There is also the possibility that you have started to loose the baby and that is why it came back as negative in the second test, although I would hope that is not the case. Good luck!
