  • What time of day did you take the test? I know they say any time of day, but early morning is still the best.

    Also, somewhere in my 20's I started to skip a month with my period. I wasn't pregnant, I would just skip a month.

    BUT-- A friend of mine always came up negative with HPT even when she was pregnant. I would take another one in a week. If it is still negative, you could call the doctor, but for me, I'd wait. If you miss the next period and the HPT still comes up neg. I'd call my doctor.

  • I would wait another week to test again unless I started to feel symptoms. I'd go in to see my Doc at that point. Good Luck!

  • A lot of women take HPT's and they are always negative even if they are pregnant...I would go to the hospital or clinic and have a blood test done. They can tell you sooner than a HPT. And it's cheaper than continuing to buy all those tests.

  • I would wait til i am that least two to three wks. that way you arent getting a false-postive! Or just go to your Dr. and get test they can do a blood test and tell probly now! Good Luck!
