Can a blood test be taken too early?

Its only been a week since I had sex, could the blood test be wrong with pregnancy?

  • If a blood test says your pregnant it's not likely to be wrong.

  • yes, it could be, you are at the border line time frame that it may or may not be a false negative. In my experience I had to be tested early because I have to take meds to keep from miscarrying and I have had a blood test come back positive at 10 days before and negative at 12 days but turned positive at 16 days. I would wait till at least 10-14 days though to ask a Dr to do the test, or do it again if you have already done it. I blood test will show up ALOT earlier than a urine test though. Good Luck!
