A Quantitative blood test will pick up pregnancy as early as 5 days after conception. Whereas a Qualiative blood test will not until you are 3-4 weeks pregnant. If you had a Quantitative then you are not pregnant. Yes you could test again in 2 weeks time. Or see your doctor for a Quantitative blood test and also have your hormone levels checked. If the blood test hasn't detected a pregnancy...then you are not pregnant. Http://wish2conceive.com ***more info*** Let me clarify my question above. I was on birth control pills and think I might have missed one and then doubled up. I cannot remember if this happened because it was a very hectic month and I was not expecting to have intercourse because of the schedules my fiance and I have. If I conceived when I think I did, it would have been July 9th or 10th, the day before I was supposed to get my period or the day I was expecting my period. I had spotting three days afterwards, just a few drops and brown blood. I never got a period. I am extremely regular because I am on the pill. I was never more than a day late and never missed a period since I was 13. I took a home test on the 14th and it was negative. I went for a quantitative blood test on 15th and it registered as a 1, considered negative. If I was pregnant I would have only concieved 5-6 days prior to the test, considering time for implantation. Now I am 18 days late...have cramping on and off, headaches, exhaustion, heartburn, gas, tender breasts, on and off nausea, moody. I took a HPT the other day which would have been about two weeks after intercourse and it was negative. Should I get another blood test to be sure? Is it possible that I am pregnant even though I tested negative early on? Could I have tested too soon? Is it even likely that I got pregnant the day before my period? I do believe I missed a pill or two at the end of June beginning of July.
Yes. Home administered pregnancy tests can be administered wrong and lead to a false negative result.
Yes. You could be testing too early.
I'm wondering that also. I'm 3 weeks late, and still testing negative. Yes you can.
It is more common for home pregnancy tests to give a false negative than a false positive. You could be testing too soon. Home pregnancy tests are considered accurate 14-16 days after ovulation.
You could by a small chance, but, you might also imagine the symptoms (phantom pregnancy). Or your pregnancy is too small at the moment. Try testing again in a week or two (when your period hasn't started). If still negative and you got the symptoms and no period then go see a doctor.
If you are thinking you are 3 months pregnant and a preg test still shows negative, then this cannot be the case. It is possible a preg tes will not show positive until you are 6 weeks alone (if you have low HCG levels), but not 12 weeks. If you "feel" pregnant, and you are still testing negative, it could be a phantom pregnancy, or there could be something wrong with your periods.
Yes. Bleeding can come from "implantation bleeding". Negative test results can come from testing too soon. Wait to take a pregnancy test the day of a missed period.
The most common causes for false negative home pregnancy tests are testing too soon (you should test 14 to 16 days after having unprotected sex) and testing with diluted urine. You should use first mornings urine to test or test with urine that you've held for at least 5 hours. If you still feel that you may be pregnant and are still getting negative results you should see your Dr.
That you are testing too early or that you are not pregnant.
Hello Yes you could be pregnant. You may be testing too early or you might not have enough HCG in your urine to give a positive test. See your doctor for a blood test. This is the most accurate testing available.
yes, because you would still be pregnant and still have the hormone which is what the home pregnancy test is testing for.
If you had your period then you aren't pregnant. If you think you are then take a First Response 5 days sooner pregnancy test (voted #1 most accurate on news) and if negative then wait 7 days and retest and if still negative and still think you are pregnant then call your doctor and he'll do a blood test and take it from there. The only way to know if you're pregnant is by pregnancy testing and a blood test. Take care of yourself and good luck.
A test coming out positive means that the test found whatever it was looking for. A test coming out negative means it didn't find anything. Like a pregnancy test coming out positive means a good chance of the person tested being pregnant. Negative means there are no signs of pregnancy in the tested substance.
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.
Pregnancy testing is not affected by pelvic inflammatory disease . A pregnancy test will still work, so your doctor can tell if you're pregnant.
It's possible. Depends on whether or not you took the tests too soon. You should wait a couple of weeks past your missed period before testing.
Sometimes if you are concerned of becoming pregnant or excited to become pregnant your mind can play tricks on you and you can think you are experiencing these symptoms. Are you late this month? It is possible that you may have tested too early. Make sure you are testing at the appropriate time and do it with morning urine since it will have the strongest concentration of the pregnancy hormone.
No it can not. There is no testing on pregnant women so just avoid it. There is no reason why you should take it.
Are you having any other symptoms then that?
I'm no expert of course, but the likliness of a false negative is far greater than the likliness of a false positive. I'd suggest waiting 5-7 days and re-testing =]
Yes, you may just be taking the test too early. I am 4 weeks pregnant and had symptoms very early on but every test I took was negative because I was testing too early (I'm a bit impatient as this is my first pregnancy). It wasn't until one day before I was to start my period that I got a definitive positive on my HPT. If you haven't missed your period yet, wait and then test again. Good luck. Yes. You can have a home pregnancy test that comes back negative. In fact my older sister took many pregnancy test that came back negative when she was in fact pregnant. Her doctor told her that a urine test would not come back positive for her, and that she would always need to have a blood test to check for pregncny. That was four years ago, but when she took a home pregnancy test last month it too came back negative, when she in fact was pregnant. I would recommend that you go to the doctor and have a blood test done to confirm that you are or are not pregnant
no. when testing for pregnancy, all they look for is pregnancy hormones
Yes, when indicated. There are problems of pregnancy that can be diagnosed by liver function testing.
If you tested too early, yes.. it's best to wait until your period is late before testing, if you have very regular cycles, and tested after you are late and got a negative, then you probably are not pregnant, you can ask your docotor for a blood test if you want a second opinion. ~pawsalmighty
Other things besides pregnancy can cause a missed period such as stress, travelling, being really upset etc. or you ight be pregnant but too early for it to show up on a test
