  • It is possible to get 100 negatives on a pregnancy test and still be pregnant. The tests are looking for excreted HcG (human coloronic gonodatropin)... if you (for a great many reasons from thyroid problems to obesity, low excreting and genetic anomalies) don't excrete enough for the test to pick up, you can have many false negatives.

    It is much, much more rare to have a false positive.

  • I took five pregnacy tests and all came out neg. I swore I was pregnant. I finally bought one of those cheap CVS ones, peed on it in the middle of the day, and left it on the bathroom sink thinking it would come out neg. I came back ten minutes was positive! I was almost 10 weeks along before I got a positive reading on a test. So yes, it is very possible!

  • it is also possible to be having symptoms that aren't really there bc your mind is playing tricks on you and early pregnancy symptoms are very close to period symptoms

  • Yes. Sometimes pregnancy tests are negative no matter how many times you take them. Check with your doctor asap, if you feel any symptoms
