  • Pinching in your ovaries? I think you are pulling at straws here. If you take a test too soon it can be negative.

  • Believe me with today's testing that you get at drug stores, they are pretty accurate. Unless you buy the drugstore kind and it looks fuzzy. I took two tests because February is a short month and I got my period twice in January. It said negative last week when it was due. It said negaitve two days ago. Wham I got it yesterday!!!! So it just happened to me and I wasn't . Those test are good. I got two for $10.99!!!!!

  • It can be negative if there isn't enough hormnone in the system, it doesn't matter what test you get.

  • Yes is can either be to soon or a tubal preg. There are some other reasons but my brains not working well this morning.

  • usually they will be accurate once your period is late but sometime the hcg doesn't get into the urine at high enough levels so it's definitely possible.

  • yeah, it can happen. took until about 2 months for me to get one even from the college nurse many moons ago-
    had the same thing recently with a HPT-

    me, I guess I would just take care of myself as if I was pregnant just in case, and if a positive result is in your future, then it is-

    I hope it turns out the way you want :)
    good luck.
