Is it possible to have a false negative result even if it is on the first day of your missed period?

Yes, it is possible to still be pregnant. Wait another couple of days and take another one. If you are still late and the tests are negative, go see a doctor. But I am normally a very regular person and I was a week late the last two months. So it is possible to be late and not be pregnant.

No, some pregnancy tests say they can give you an accurate result 5 days before your missed period. If you get a negative result, it is best to test again a couple days following your missed period to ensure you are in fact not pregnant. If you get a positive more than likely you are pregnant as it is more likely to get a false negative than a false positive. If you do get a faint positive and are still unsure, take another test a couple days following your missed period and if that test is positive call your doctors office and make an appointment. Good luck!

First thing in the morning, after you have missed a period. Taken too soon (before your period is late) the test may result in a false negative.

You can test on the first day of your missed period, if the result is negative test again after 2 days.

Yes. Pregnancy tests may not show a positive result until right before or even days after your missed period.

Unlikely, but it might have just been too early to take a test. If your period still hasn't arrived in 2 weeks, take another one

User Avatar

You can but it may not be accurate for 5 days or so. If you get a positive result you are pregnant, if it is negative, wait a week and retest if your period is still late.

Take a pregnancy test. If the result is negative, go and see the doctor, because it is important to find out why you are missing your period

User Avatar

yes you can be pregnant and get a negative test result with blood tests it is rare. There are other causes of missed periods see your gynecologist he will probably recommend an ultrasound.

At least 10-12 days after ovulation. It is best to wait until your missed period to get an accurate result. I tested with the early pregnancy test (5 days before missed period) and I got a negative. Then I took a test 3 days after my late period and got a positive.

User Avatar

probably you need to wait until you have missed your period to get the best result of your pregnancy test hope this helps.

A week ought to give you a good result. Some of the tests today say it can detect pregnancy in 2-3 days, but a week is a good measure.

User Avatar

Wait a few days and if you don't get your regular period test again. If you get a positive result or still get a negative with no period within a few more days go see your dr as soon as possible.

for a most accurate result try a test on the day or after your period is missed

User Avatar

You would only just be producing hormone 3 days before your period so a test is likely to be negative. Wait until you have missed your period then test on a FRESH early morning specimen.

take another one. false positives are common but odds are better if you think you are to take multiple tests in one day. if all are negative you're not. if you have any positive, go see a doctor as false positives are not common

User Avatar

To get the most accurate result it is best to wait 5 to 10 days after a missed period. You can test with a 5 days before your missed period test BUT remember if it comes out negative, it could be a false negative and will want to test again once your period is late.

It depends on what kind of pregnancy test you take. Some tests will label their tests as "Results 5 days before missed period" or somethin similar. This means that they are capable of detecting pregnancy four days before your missed period. But keep in mind that each day further away from your "expected period" the test will be less accurate. False negative pregnancy tests are much more common that false positive pregnancy tests. So if you get a negative result four days before your expected period, that may not always mean you are not pregnant.

It depends on which test you buy. Some say as early as 5 days before your missed period. However, even if these tests are taken prior to a missed period, the results can be incorrect. It seems as if the odds of having a correct result are higher if you wait until after your missed period.

Most home pregnancy tests say that they can only predict pregnancy accurately up to the first day of your missed period. Anything taken before that is pretty useless.

Many anti-depressants have a side effect of delayed or missed periods. With Lexapro, this side effect is not one of the more common ones, but it is a possible one. Likewise, withdrawing frin Lexapro may also result in a missed period. If you miss a period on Lexapro, you should first test to see if you are pregnant. Missed periods are commonplace and happen to most women at some point in their lives. If you are extremely worried, if there are other complications, or if you have missed more than three periods in a row, see a doctor.

You could be. Wait another 2 weeks, then take another test. If the result is still negative, wait to see if you miss your next period. If you do, go and see your doctor. If not, you're not pregnant. Sometimes periods are missed for no apparent reason
