Question: Can I Be Pregnant But Have A Negative PT?

I have missed my period for 3 months and i still keep taking a negative pregnancy test. Can I still be pregnant and how can i find out if I am or not?

User avatar Hello,
A blood test through a doctor or clinic would be the most sensitive test to determine pregnancy and these are usually very accurate. There are other reasons for missed periods, usually not serious, such as hormonal fluctuation and lack of ovulation. The test will help you to be confident.

Best wishes.
