  • yes, it all depends on how strong the pregnancy hormones are. It may take a few more days for the numbers to be high enough to show positive.

  • of course. that's why you're supposed to wait until after you've missed a period.

  • Defiantly wait until after your period, you may be anxious to know but it'll be worth knowing for sure than getting a false result. I've had negative results a week after my missed period, turns out i was preggo.

  • Also, you should test with your first morning urine, because it will be the strongest.

  • Yes, I had five negative pregnancy tests while very pregnant with my son. I finally got a positive one at seven weeks pregnant. The next day I had an ultrasound and he had a heartbeat and everything. What I fianally worked for me was going pee before bed. And first thing in the morning taking a test. Your HCG levels are highest in the morning because you've been still and let everything sit. =)

  • Most over the counter pregnancy tests require your Hcg hormone levels to be at least 50. Since Hcg doubles every 48hrs, a pregnacy test may be negative one day and 2 days later is positive. Mornig urine is most concentrated so that is the best time to test. If your repeat test is negative and still have a strong suspicion call your MD and schedule quantative blood test.
