  • See your Dr. Sounds like hormones and a false negative is possible even though it doesn't happen all that often. It could be early on or there is also the possibility of a tubal pregnancy. Is it at all possible that you were pg. for a short time and miscarried? I would see your Dr. just in case. Good luck.

  • If you aren't pregnant (I would call Dr. to find out if it's possible that you had a false negative), then I wonder if you are taking herbal supplements that might be causing it? If not, then I don't know why it's happening.
