Can you be pregnant and get a negative pregnancy test?

With my first I had positive pregnancy test at 6 weeks but it was so faint. I never tested again to see if it got darker. Now I really think I'm pregnant but keep getting negatives. Is that possible even if a previous pregnancy gave you a positive?

  • Yes it is possible but how many have you taken? You may just not be pregnant.
    If you really think you are call your dr for a blood test. You can also just wait it out another week and test again.

  • Well I haven't had a peirod since 7/28. I am irregular and the last time I went this long was when I found out I was pregnant with my first. I've been taking tests once a week for the last couple months. I have an appt on the 18th. I just would like to have some reassurance that I'm not completley crazy!

  • Umm Ya that is a bit long. You IMO are most likely pregnant. I know a couple girls who NEVER got a positive their whole pregnancy .
    Good luck!

  • Yes. I got a negative on a Wednesday and then took the second test 2 days later just to use it and positive! I was 3 weeks pregnant. I used First Response. Don't use Dollar Tree. After my positive, I gathered several brands of tests (even digital) Dollar tree test was the only one that showed up negative after that!

  • yes. I was actually 4 months pregnant with my son before I got a positive result on a HPT. I say call your doctor for a blood test.
