  • Yes. How many days late are you? I tested after my period was 2 days late.. and got a negative. I waited another week and tested and got a positive. Some women have problems with their hormones building up for a home pregnancy test to detect the hormones properly. If you still can't get a positive after about a week of no period, I would contact a doctor for a blood test.

  • i had two negative tests and then a positive blood work screen. all of the at home tests claim to be so reliable and 99.999999 percent accurate but everything man made is faulty in some way.

  • You can very often receive a false negative but rarely a false positive.
