Question: Negative Results


 jterry - Mon Jan 31, 2005 11:24 am

If you have missed your period by 3 days and then take a pregnacy test and it results in negative- Does that mean you are definitely not pregnant? Are there better tests to use than others? I used a generic store brand. Should I be spending a lot to get better results?

I know what your going through because I've missed my period for about 2 weeks now and I took a pregnancy test and it came out negative. So I don't know if I'm pregnant or not. I just have to wait a week or two and take another one because I took the preg. test too early I believe. You might of have taken your preg. test early too. Try frist response preg. test. Hopefully you'll start your period soon .

Well it is now Feb 21 and still no period, I actually have a dr's apt for next week to get blood work done. My mother had negative pregnancy tests b/c her HCG levels are really low, it's been 8 weeks, no period.

User avatar Hi jterry,
If HCG levels are low a urine pregnancy test may read a false negative. A blood test would be able to determine whether or not you are pregnant.
Sincerely,
