Question: home test negative but some symptoms

 baby0410 - Fri Nov 06, 2009 5:58 am

is it possible for me to be pregnant even though i took a home test and it was negative?

User avatar Hello,
False negatives are possible so if you think you may be pregnant repeat the test in a week. False positives really don't happen but negatives can show up if your hCG level is not high enough yet.

Best wishes.
