  • some people never turn a pee test for some reason, so I would go to the doctor and have a blood test done 7 weeks is a long time to be late.

  • well the dr. should be able to tell you just by squeezing your belly if you're pregnant or not.... i guess you'll just have to wait and see

  • it's pretty rare, i'd say that you are not pregnant if they are negative. keep us posted though.

  • False negatives are very common. There are a lot of factors that alter how much hCg a pregnancy will excrete into the mother's urine, including other hormone issues (thyroid problems and diabetes particularly), obesity, extreme weight loss and a few other more rare conditions.

    False positives are very uncommon and are caused by something else excreting hCg --usually serious problems with ovaries or uterus. Serious like cancer.
