What are your chances of being pregnant when you receive negative results on a pee test but have overwhelming signs of pregnancy?

there is still a chance you could be pregnant visit your doctor;

sometimes the hormone that is produced when pregnant doesn't show

on the "pee test" pregnancy test if it is early on in the

pregnancy. you should wait a few days to a week and then retest if

you think you may still be pregnant or go to your doctor. There are

several things that can contribute to a negative pregnancy test

even if you are pregnant. Some medications can give you a false

negative, the timing of the test can affect the results. If you did

not follow directions properly; if you let the test sit for too

long the results may read negative after a while. It is important

to read the results within the amount of time given on the

instructions of that particular pregnancy test you bought. If you

did not perform the test properly (example: you drank a lot of

fluids before taking the test, which can dilute your urine). Etc To

ensure the best results: * Take the test in the morning, if

possible, because your hCG (pregnancy hormone) levels are at it's

highest * Don't drink a bunch of fluids before taking the test

because it will dilute your urine and can affect the results * Take

the test no more than 1 day before expected period. Although some

test say that you can see results up to 5 days before your missed

period, the percentage of accuracy is very low. * urinate for as

long as possible on the foam-like strip * Check the results in the

window frame of time suggested by the instructions of the pregnancy
