I believe right after you will still have the hormone in your blood stream. I would advise you go the Dr. to be sure if you are pregnant again or not.

Yup.AnswerIt isn't likely. False negatives are common. False positives are very uncommon. They can. I have had some false positives with Clear Blue (not the digital type).

How long can a pregnancy test show negative when actually pregnant?

Most home pregnancy tests should be accurate from around 2 weeks after ovulation (coinciding with the time your period is due). If it shows negative at this point and you still miss your period, wait another week and retest. Pregnancy tests test for a hormone called HCG which basically doubles every day in early pregnancy, so after around 3 weeks of negative testing, you are probably not pregnant. If in doubt go to the doctor and get a blood test which will prove for definite eitherway.

You can dectect hcg in urine as soon as you miss a period or sooner, but very small quanities, however further into the pregnancy the hcg is higher. so if you test early in pregnancy and have a negative result this may be because not enough hcg was traced, early pregnancy tests are better done in the morning with the first urine of the day.

What if my pregnancy test was negative but I have pregnancy symptoms?

Wait a few days and take another test. It's possible you got a false negative, or you just don't have enough of the pregnancy hormone in your urine to show up positive. The hormone doubles each day, so if you are still experiencing pregnancy symptoms in 5-10 days, take another test. If it's still negative and you are experiencing pregnancy symptoms, seek medical advice.

Can pregnancy tests give a false negative?

Yes a pregnancy test can show negative when you actually are pregnant. The most common false negative happens when there is not enough of the pregnancy hormone HGH to be detected as in early pregnancy. This is why some tests come with another test so that you may retest later. Concentrations of the hormone are higher and easier to detect when you first wake up before you drink anything or go to the bathroom.
