  • wait a few days and test again. false negatives are very common sweetie! don't let it get you depressed. You've got a very important symptom- NO PERIOD! best of luck! and like always, if you are in doubt, go get a blood test done by your doctor.

  • Don't be upset yet. It could still be too early. Wait to see if u miss your period. Trust me it's definetely not a for sure negative.

  • You can also go get a blood test if u want. An HCG above 5 is all u need. But I would just wait til sunday or monday and test again.

  • I did the same thing in June, I tested 4 days too early, and it said negative. Just give it a few days. Do you know when you ovulate? I went online and found an ovulation calculator, and it told me the probable days that I would be ovulating, and thats when we did it, and BAM! I was pregnant! Good Luck!!!!

  • i took five pregnancy tests and finally on the fifth one there was a line, a very faint one but it was there! Everyone is right, dont get discouraged it may just be to soon.

  • OK, First...just take a deep breath. Now, the two most easiest answers that i can give you that is either go to the drug store and get different tests, or go to your doctor and just get the blood work done. If you're like me and you don't like needles, you can get a "pee" test. They trace the hormone levels or something like that in your pee and if it is too high, then they give you a blood test to make sure. Problem solved. O! One more thing.... STRESS CAN BRING ON FALSE TESTS. I know its easire said than done but don't stress it. When it is time and you are least expected, you will recieve.....everytime!
