Urine Test at doctor negative.

I was suppose to start my period on the 25th and I missed it! I went to the doctor today and took a urine test and it was negative. they gave me a blood test and i have to call back tommorrow for results. Being it has only been 7 days could the blood test show up negative cause it is early?

  • a blood test should show up positive especially if you have already missed your period

  • a week late isn't early by pregnancy tests standards. Blood test are more accurate though.

  • A few doctors told me that a blood test would tell you the same thing a urine test, but it could have been that they just didn't want to do the blood test on me. I really think it depends on the hormone level, but there are more false- negative urine test then there are false- positives. I would say call them and see what they say and if it comes back negative wait a little longer and test again.

  • My doctor told me his urine tests are much more sensitive than hpt's and can detect pregnancy almost immediately.
