Have you ever had negative results from an at home test when you were pregnant?

I'm on day 36 of my cycle, the longest I've had in 6 months is 35 days but it's usually 32. I peed on a stick and it was negative. But I'm still hopeful. Anyone else had a negative result at home when they were actually pregnant? The directions say it's possible.

  • I could only test positive from a blood test. I naturally carry a higher then normal of the pregnancy hormone, so the urine tests never did work right for me.

  • No. Every time I have taken a HPT I have been pregnant

  • I haven't, but my aunt did the entire time she was pregnant with her first. They had to do a blood test for her.

  • With my first son I tested negative. I was devestated to. Went into a bit of depression, all the while I had my little baby growing inside of me.

  • It's always possible you ovulated late, which will make your cycle longer since your luteal phase tends to stay pretty consistent. About the earliest you can get a positive test is 10 days after ovulation, most people don't get one until 12-13 days after with a sensitive test. If your period hasn't shown up, being pregnant is always a possibility. But late ovulation is also possible. It can be affected by a lot of things including stress, antibiotics, or changes in your exercise pattern.
