  • from what I understand, it's more common to get a false negative than it is to get a false positive...there should be planned parenthood places, or pregnancy assistance centers in your area. They do pregnancy tests and things like that at discounted prices, or even for free if you qualify. Just look in the phone book under pregnancy assistance places. most of the time if you are pregnant, you can get state assistance to be able to pay for all your prenatal care. good luck!

  • I had TWO false negativbe tests done at an Air Force clinic when I WAS pregnant with my first baby. It has happened too many times. Have you done your own test?

  • Sometimes women just have non-ovulatory cycles. No egg releases, so the chemical cascade doesn't happen that brings on a period. It will start back up sooner or later. :) BUT.... be sure you are using birth control now since that egg could drop any time.
