Have you ever gotten a false negative on a pregnancy test?

I am a week late- everything smells bad, I am sick to my stomach- I took a test (not first pee) and it said not pregnant- should I try again or accept this?

  • It happens all the time! you may not be far enough along or you could just not have enough preg. hormone in your urine so if you arent due for a period for another few days or so i would wait and try again then but if you have already missed your period and have taken the test, believe you are pregnant, but it's negative... go to the obgyn and get a blood test done because like i said the hormone just may very likely be too small of an amount to detect!

  • Yeah, it happens a lot. Not to me but I know it does... You should just wait a few more days and re-test or go get bloodwork. I have a friend that when she is pregnant the tests will never say pos, she has to get blood tests to have proof
