Yes, both false positives and negatives can happen at reliable clinics. Sometimes the reagents used for the test may be old, improperly stored or handled, causing the problem. On the other hand, home pregnancy tests are notoriously inaccurate.

Anything is possible; however, they're usually always right. Sometimes home tests may not be able to detect the pregnancy hormone. If you are pregnant, congratulations, and be very happy!

What is the risk of pregnancy with a husband who has had a vasectomy you have had one negative pregnancy test and you are forty-two days between cycles?

Pregnancy is possible. A simple blood test at your doctors or local clinic will verify a pregnancy. If not positive, then you need to discuss the other possible resons for your lack of cycle. However, you can get pregnant with a "fixed" partner if intercourse took place within the prescribed time for abstinence after his surgery. Also, but less likely, it is possible that the surgery did not fully "take" or that there is an act of God. Good Luck.
