  • With HPT there is the chance of the false positive. A viable pregancy will have HCG hormones which double daily. This can be better detected in the blood. The doctor can do a blood test to check for HCG level which are only present in women who are expecting.

  • The first time I took a test when I was pregnant with my 2nd son, it said "negative". Still no period. I went to planned parenthood. They did a test. Said "negative". Still nothing for a few more weeks. Finally, went to the clinic at the hospital. They did a test & finally told me yes, I was pregnant. I was really beginning to wonder! I have heard of some women never showing a positive on a pee test.

  • I've heard of many people never testing positive on a pregnancy test. I think another mom on here last night commented that she took a HPT at 8 months pregnant and it was negative! Blood tests are your best bet, but I've heard pregnancy can fool those as well. Are you having any weird symptoms other than the absent period? Good luck to you tomorrow! Let us know!

  • It is a lot more common than you think for women to show a "false negative" on a HPT. Blood tests are the most reliable.

    Good luck :)
