False negative with blood test



I was wondering how likely it is for me to have a false negative with a blood test. My period is 2 weeks late and I have many I of the symptoms of pregnancy. I’ve had both a HPT & a blood test come out negative. However, with my first pregnancy I had false negatives all thought the first trimester. Tomorrow I’m making an appointment for an exam.

  • blood test are usually not wrong, the only time i have known them to be wrong is if you are taking hormone pills or steroids.... I have been a Rn for almost 7 years now and i have only seen to false neg with my patients in are clinic

  • I had every symptom of pregnancy, and got negative HPT. I went to the dr for exam, negative. I was prescribed Provera to make my period start. Dr, Said you don't have to have your period. Made mine start because the hormones are making me miserable. I have 4 kids, so I wasn't overly disappointed it was negative. I woyld have been excited for another miracle, but have plenty on my plate now! Good luck to you. Try to accept whatever the results are, and move on.
