There are several things that can contribute to a negative pregnancy test even if you are pregnant. Some medications can give you a false negative, the timing of the test can affect the results. If you did not follow directions properly; if you let the test sit for too long the results may read negative after a while. It is important to read the results within the amount of time given on the instructions of that particular pregnancy test you bought. If you did not perform the test properly (example: you drank a lot of fluids before taking the test, which can dilute your urine). Etc. On rare occasions you can encounter a false positive due to improper testing, expired pregnancy tests, rare medical conditions such as certain types of cancer, evaporation lines or a chemical pregnancy. To ensure the best results: * Take the test in the morning, if possible, because your hCG (pregnancy hormone) levels are at it's highest * Don't drink a bunch of fluids before taking the test because it will dilute your urine and can affect the results * Take the test no more than 1 day before expected period. Although some test say that you can see results up to 5 days before your missed period, the percentage of accuracy is very low. * urinate for as long as possible on the foam-like strip * Check the results in the window frame of time suggested by the instructions of the pregnancy test.
If a pregnancy test read after 3 minutes is negative, and 3 days later a line appears, the test is still negative. Pregnancy tests should be disregarded after 10 minutes because environmental factors can cause a line to appear.
no because a uti test is not testing the amount of HCG Pregnancy tests test for HCG which is only present in the blood and urine during pregnancy.
Yes; UTIs do not affect the accuracy of a pregnancy test.
No, it could mean that you have some pudge. Only a positive pregnancy test can prove this.
You may be pregnant but took the test too early or its a false negative. A blood type is most accurate.
If the pregnancy test was negative, it means that you are not pregnant.
Most pregnancy tests are 99%
If you took the test at home, I suggest that you take it at a clinic because the home pregnancy test can sometimes be wrong....And if you are having symptoms you might be.... but what kind of symptoms are you having??
your not pregnant !!
Well, since you have had ALL the pregnancy symptoms and no period, you could be pregnant! But since your home pregnancy test was negative you couldn't be pregnant. You may want to go to your doctor and ask him if you are pregnant.
Endometriosis, possible pelvic inflamatory disease, or a false negative on a pregnancy test. Consult your physician.
Wait a few days and take another test. It's possible you got a false negative, or you just don't have enough of the pregnancy hormone in your urine to show up positive. The hormone doubles each day, so if you are still experiencing pregnancy symptoms in 5-10 days, take another test. If it's still negative and you are experiencing pregnancy symptoms, seek medical advice.
Go and see a doctor!! Obvious...
Some women who have an ectopic pregnancy have a negative pregnancy test. The hCG which gives a positive test result, is released from the embryo implanting in the uterus.
