  • YES you can take HPTs that come out negative. I had 2 say negative when I was pregnant.

    Can't help you with the IUD question though, never had it so I don't know.

  • Yes you can take a HPT and get a negative and really be pregnant just make sure that when you take the HPT you take it with your first pee of the day.

  • my mother got pregnant with me while on the IUD, i've heard other similar stories as well...it's usually caused by it moving out of place. if you're concerned about it you can have it checked by your doctor.

    also, HPTs can come back negative as far into a pregnancy as 20weeks just because of the potency of the hormone verses the potency of the test. that & they do have a false negative rate of like 2%, & that's if it's used correctly (which in most cases they arent for some reason). the best test is a blood test from your doctor.

  • Yes, false negatives happen ALL THE TIME! I had 4 with my first pregnancy and 1 with my second pregnancy! And yes, you can get pregnant on the IUD but it is an increased chance of a tubal pregnancy (pregnancies are more likely to be ectopic with IUD's) so you will want to get medical attention ASAP if get a positive. How late were you when you last tested? Ectopic pregnancies will cause a degrees in the HCG hormone and will be harder to pick up on a HPT
