  • it's possible to have a false negative. give it a few more days until you've missed your period and test again

  • There is a small chance (less than 1%) of the test being wrong if it is done at the right time, your urine isn't too dilute, and it is read correctly. One in four women do it wrong or read it wrong. I would trust a test more than sore boobs (can have other causes). If your period isn't due for awhile it may be too early for the test.

  • if your period isnt close then id say its too early to test...wait a couple days and do it again...its normal or your boobs to be sore because your period is coming so it could just be that but maybe thats not normal for you...i was having strange sensations in my nipples when i forst got preg...thats why i got a test...that was not normal for me...

  • If your period is not due for a while, it is very possible that it is too early to test. When is AF due? When did you ovulate?

  • Too early to test if your period isn't due for a couple of weeks or so. Sore breasts could also be pms symptoms? Is this a sign that your period is coming? For me, I missed my period and also noticed sore nipples and breasts which made me take the test, which ended up being positive. Good luck to you!

  • yes it is normal for me to have sore boobs before pms but i have had these sore boobs and off and on all day sickness for about 7 weeks so needless to say i am a little worried that the test came back negative espically since my last period was way lighter and shorter than it normally is and i have a pretty normal period for about 2 yrs now so i know what is normal and what isn't so my last one i know was not normal
