Is it Possible to Have a False-Negative Pregnancy Test Result?




False-Negative Pregnancy Tests

At Your Options Medical, we have found that after some of our patients take a pregnancy test and see the negative result, they assume that they are definitely not pregnant. However, this is not always the case. False-negative pregnancy tests do occur. In fact, it is possible to have a negative result on a pregnancy test and actually be pregnant. Here is how it works:

A urine pregnancy test detects the hormone called hCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin). This is the hormone your body produces during pregnancy. When urine is being tested for the presence of this hCG hormone and a woman is pregnant, the result of the pregnancy test should read with a positive result. However, there are a few reasons a woman can take a pregnancy test and receive a false test result including:

  • When the pregnancy is early, the hCG hormone levels may be too low for a pregnancy test to detect. The earliest time to take a pregnancy test to receive an accurate result is typically a few days after you were due to begin your period.
  • If a woman’s urine is less concentrated, then the pregnancy test may not be able to detect the hCG hormone. The best time of day to take a pregnancy test is first thing in the morning when a woman’s urine is highly concentrated.
  • If you have had a negative pregnancy test, but are experiencing typical pregnancy symptoms such as –nausea –vomiting –tiredness –loss of appetite, etc. It is always best to contact your doctor as there may be something happening with your body other than pregnancy.

If you think you might be pregnant because you have missed your period, know that there are other reasons you may have missed your period besides pregnancy. To learn more, check out our blog.

  1. So I took 2 pregnancy tests both after 14 days of when my period usually began. Both came out negative. Does that mean I’m not pregnant?

    1. Hi Cadederial, Not necessarily. As presented in the blog, there are multiple reasons why you could receive a false negative result on a pregnancy test.

  2. Hi! I missed my period twice, took the 1st pregnancy test after 6 weeks from my last period and it came out negative. Took another 2 PTs 2 weeks after and still negative. However, I sometimes feel nauseous and my head always hurt. Does that mean I might be pregnant? BTW my cycle is irregular. Couldnt schedule a checkup with an OB GYNE cause my area is in lockdown due to COVID 19.

  3. I’m on nexplanon but still feel like I might be pregnant even though the four different brands of the many test all said negative. I have so many of the feelings that I had early in previous pregnancies. I don’t know how to ask without sounding crazy for a blood test or just wait it out…

    1. Hi Charlotte, I apologize for the delay in our response. It is possible you might be pregnant. We could offer you free pregnancy testing; however, we do not have blood tests. If you would like to schedule an appointment please call 617-419-6112. You could ask your doctor for a blood test simply explaining the situation.

  4. I have taken 2 home pregnancy test and both were negative. I haven’t had a cycle since March 3 and I have nausea, vomiting, my stomach is extremely bloated and cramps a lot, headaches, tender and full breast. I feel crazy is there any way I am not pregnant or a reason that I am testing negative if I am pregnant? My cramps have been so bad that I have went to ER and they tested me as well and urine test was negative. I really need to know if I am because my son was born stillborn and 2 years later I was diagnosed with MTHFR with my daughter and I know it is important to start treatment early in pregnancy.

    1. Hi Stacy, I apologize for the delay in our response. You may be pregnant and testing negative on urine tests, some women have to take blood tests in order to receive an accurate result. If you think you might be pregnant and need a blood test, you could contact your doctor and request a blood test.

  5. I’ve had my IUD removed maybe 2 weeks ago now. This week alone I’ve been waking up nauseous and losing my appetite while eating and I’ve taken many test and all have come back negative but my body just doesn’t feel right? Should I contact my doctor?

    1. Hi Gabrielle, If you have any concerns after having an IUD removed it would be good to contact the doctor who prescribed the IUD so you can ask questions and they can address your concerns.

    1. Hi Sis, It is possible to receive a false negative result on a pregnancy test. It may be too early to test or there could be something else going on. If you would like to schedule an appointment for free pregnancy testing, please call 617-419-6112.

  7. I Have been nauseous for over a week now my period isnt for another 4 days. I thought that if I am feeling nauseous already then I could test positive, however, I’ve taken 4 tests and 1digital, I thought I seen a line on the last 2 tests but they are hardly noticeable and everyone says they dont see the line, I’m sure it’s part of an evaporation line at this point.

    1. Hi Sam, we typically recommend taking a pregnancy test a few days after you are due to begin your period. If you think you might be pregnant, we can offer you medical-grade pregnancy testing, possible ultrasound if medical criteria is met (positive pregnancy test, no current bleeding, etc.), and pregnancy options counseling. If you would like to schedule an appointment, please call 617-419-6112 and we will be happy to help and answer your questions.

  8. Hi, I’m Kayley. I haven’t had my period in over a month. Beginning last weekend I was nauseous and began throwing up. It’s stopped for a day or so and came back yesterday. I’ve been having headaches, peeing constantly, and I’m always tired no matter how much sleep I get. I went to the doctor Saturday and they did a urine test but it came back negative. When my mom was pregnant with me and my two brothers her urine tests never showed up positive so she always had to get blood tests to make sure she was and I’m just confused on what to do and if I could be pregnant.

    1. Hi Kayley, I am so sorry to hear you have not been feeling well. If you think you might be pregnant and are experiencing some symptoms, we could offer you free pregnancy testing. Please know though we offer medical quality pregnancy tests, they are urine tests only. If you would like to make an appointment, please call 617-419-6112. If you would like to get a blood test done, you can ask your doctor for this test.

  9. Am I the only one here who tested positive but turns out it was just false pregnancy, rather than the pregnancy test being false? This might be ridiculous, but could you tell and explain to me anyway on what happened in my very different case from most comments?

    1. Hi Juanita, How can I help you today? If you would like to have a private conversation offline, please call 617-419-6112 or text 508-251-9022.Thank you!

  10. I had irregular bleeding, not like my period for 2.5 days, and spotting for 2 days. All pregnancy symptoms but my blood test came out negative. My symptoms are getting worse, and the bleeding has stopped but still have cramps. Is it possible to be pregnant with the hook effect? We inseminated June 21st and the 24th.

    1. Hi Crystal! Thank you for your comment. It is possible that you could be pregnant. We can offer you free pregnancy testing and possible ultrasound if medical criteria is met. If you would like to schedule an appointment, please call 617-419-6112. However, since you are having symptoms and already received a negative blood test, I would speak with your doctor directly.

  11. I been experiencing symptoms for a week now . Cramping and lower back pain, feel like I have to throw up and breasts sore. I’m have 10 days until my period expected to arrive and I took pregnancy test but all shows negative. I’m also peeing and extremely tired. My stomach feels bloated and I’m experiencing tight muscle pain one one side of abdomen.

  12. Hey pls help me..after 9-10 days of my due date I tested but result was negative.. I am feeling cramps in stomach. My cycle is of 30-34 days.. last month I got my period on 8 June and this month I took test on 17 July and result negative. It means I am not pregnant???

    1. Hi Garrrrrriya, It is possible that you might be pregnant and the negative test result was a false negative. The only way to be sure would be to receive blood work as every so often someone could have a negative test, but be pregnant. It could also be possible that you simply took the test too early for the test to detect pregnancy. If you would like to schedule an appointment, we offer pregnancy testing at no cost to you and insurance is not required. Please call 617-419-6112 or text 508-251-9022. If you are unsure about your symptoms, it is always good to consult your doctor.

  13. Hi, so my period is 2 weeks late.. I’ve taken 2 test and they came out negative at first the first one said negative but I looked at it a couple days later to show my husband and it looked positive. The second one I took was negative.. I’ve been feeling nauseous lately with discomfort in my stomach and cramping.my breast feel full but not tender. And sometimes they hurt as well as the nipple area on occasions..I’ve lost my appetite throughout the day, and when I do eat I always still feel like I’m hungry.. I’ve been having crazy mood swings… could I be pregnant or is this something else? I be never missed a cycle. And the longes my period has been late is at lest 5 days or less.

    1. Hi Chez,
      Yes, absolutely someone can have a pregnancy test that states is negative but in fact could be positive. Sometimes it does take a couple of weeks though for the hormone to be enough in the urine to show positive. If your urine tests appear inconclusive, you could call your doctor for blood work to test for possible pregnancy. If you receive a positive result from your doctor and would like to schedule a free ultrasound with us, no insurance required, please call 617-419-6112 or text 508-251-9022.

    1. Hi Sharon,
      Thanks for your question. We get asked that a lot. There is no quick easy answer but I will try. The pregnancy test you took could be an inaccurate test. Have you tried another one? You could make an appointment at one of our Centers for a “lab quality test” free of charge by calling 617-419-6112 or texting 508-251-9022. Make sure you try to do the pregnancy test early in the morning when your urine is more concentrated and not diluted by perhaps drinking a ton of water throughout the day. You could be running late for your period – that happens in women sometimes so that in fact the accuracy of the test is correct and you will get your period soon. There are numerous issues that cause women to miss their periods (i.e. extreme diets, stress, and more). Every so often a woman might be pregnant but the hormone (human chorionic gonadotrophin – HCG) does not show in urine but that a blood test would be more definitive.

  14. Hi so my cycle is currently 50 days long… I obviously missed my period & having symptoms galore… headaches, nausea ALL DAY, super tired, feeling pretty bloated everyday.. along with ALOT of clear stretchy discharge… I should be 7 weeks today but still getting negative results. I’ve got an OB appointment in 2 days, but I just want to make sure I’m not crazy?? What could this be?

    1. Hi Brittany,
      No, you are not crazy! Women’s bodies can all be very different. Sometimes a woman has a negative urine pregnancy test and is indeed pregnant. Sometimes (fairly rarely) women have a period through some of the pregnancy. Sometimes a woman could have a positive test early on in pregnancy and could have had a miscarriage but some of the pregnancy hormone (human chorionic Gonadotrophin HCG) is still in their urine. We can offer free, no insurance needed pregnancy testing. If you would like to schedule an appointment, please call 617-419-6112 or text 508-251-9022. Of course, if you have concerning symptoms it is always good to contact your personal doctor.

    2. Hi Brittany, Sorry that I am just getting back to you at this time. By now you should have had the OB appointment. Did he/she do a blood pregnancy test? Every so often a urine test does show negative but the blood test would show positive. Keep us posted with what the OB person said.

  15. Going crazy here. I’m 38, have had 3 kids. My last period was June 23. My cycles are usually 30 days and regular. This month I have not gotten a period. It’s now the 29 of July. I feel pregnant. All of the same symptoms and feelings I had with my first 3. Yet, my pregnancy tests have all been negative. I’ve never missed a period before in my life unless I was pregnant so this is concerning to me.

    1. Hi Katie, I apologize for getting back to you so late after your inquiry. Please don’t “go crazy”. With what you have said I can see how you would be concerned. Every so often urine pregnancy tests do show negative. Hopefully the ones you are using are of a good quality. A Health Care Center (MD, NP) could do a blood pregnancy test. Please keep us posted if we can do a “lab quality test” and if you have a positive blood test result we are able to do an Ultrasound to confirm how far along you are and the viability of your pregnancy. Keep us posted!

  16. So I took a test in the morning and I saw an extremely faint line, took one later said I was negative. Took another test a day later early and said I was… then wait 2 days took it more in the afternoon but came back negative.. is it just to early to detect? I’m feeling tired, and nauseas and have had headaches for couple days on and off… I have another test I can take should I wait longer or just take it in the morning? I did set up an appointment with my dr, but they don’t want me to come in until the end of August. Feeling extremely confused.

    1. Hi Haley,
      Thanks for your question. Yes, it can get kind of confusing. Do you know what the last day of your period was? Also, early morning urine is the best to test as that is when your urine is more concentrated. So much depends on what you are thinking in terms of the pregnancy. Sounds like your doctor is not concerned and that is why they want you to wait until the end of August. If you are close to one of our Centers (Fall River, Revere or Sturbridge Massachusetts), you can come in and we will do a “lab quality” pregnancy test. If positive and medical criteria is met, we will offer an Ultrasound. Keep in touch and let us know what you decide.

  17. Hi,
    My names Elizabeth. So I haven’t gotten my period since last July. They’re irregular but it’s bothering me a lot with how late it is. I have EVERY pregnancy symptom. My stomach is rock hard at the top. Stretch marks are dark and surrounding my belly but the test says negative… but my parents even said they think I am.

    1. Hi Elizabeth,
      If no period since July 2019- that is quite awhile ago or are you meaning this July that just passed, July 2020? If you want to come to one of our Centers, we can do a pregnancy test and if positive, offer an Ultrasound if medical criteria is met and that will determine how far along you are. To schedule an appointment, please call 617-419-6112. We have Centers in Fall River, Sturbridge, and Revere. If you have not confirmed your pregnancy, that does sound like it is an important step to take.

  18. Hey! Im kinda confused.. i haven’t had a period in 3 months, but every month i have spotted lightly for like 3 days, I have almost every pregnancy symptom such as nausea, headache, bloating, some tenderness on my nipples, fatigue, some cramps, frequent peeing, craving a lot of chocolate, mood swings and some back pain. I even feel some movements like some waves or light pounds and flutters here and there but very light. But all my pee tests have been negative! 🤦🏻‍♀️

    1. Hi Marcy,
      I can understand how you would be confused. Yes, every so often a woman can be pregnant with a negative urine test. When that happens the woman usually goes to a her health care provider for a blood test. That will more accurately determine status. I wish you well in figuring this out. If you want us to do a urine test we we can and if positive an ultrasound may be offered if medical criteria is met. If you go to the health care provider and have blood work and it is positive and you want an Ultrasound you can set up an appointment with us and bring the blood work confirmation with you. Hope this answers your question.

  19. Hello, my name is Sarah. I haven’t gotten my period in 11 days and I took two at home pregnancy test both Clear blue and they came out negative. I was suppose to get my period on the 23rd of July, should I take a blood test justo to make sure I am not pregnant?

    1. Hi Sarah
      In response to your question regarding “Should you get a blood test if you have a negative urine test”. I do believe that if you are concerned about being pregnant and continue to not get your period, I think it would be a good idea to have a blood test done by your MD, NP or Health Care Center. One of our Centers (Revere, Fall River or Sturbridge) could do a lab quality urine pregnancy test if you want. Every so often a woman can have a negative urine test, but blood work shows to be positive. In that case if you go to your health care provider and have blood work and it is positive you may come to us for an Ultrasound. (Just do bring the proof of pregnancy with you from the blood work).
      Hope this helps

  20. Hello My Name is Ludy
    Im about 16 days past due and i took 3 pregnancy test and all 3 came back negative i have all types of symptoms at firsf started cramping mood swings tender breasts and nauseous now i feel my breast are fuller mild cramping and very bloated could it be possible that in going thru a chemical pregnancy i recently went thru one about 6 months ago

    1. Hi Ludy, Yes that is possible. My understanding though of a chemical pregnancy is more that you would have had a positive test and then some bleeding to tell you the early pregnancy is ending. Very often women could be pregnant but never realize it as they have a period maybe a bit heavier than usual. It is possible to be pregnant and have a negative urine test. To be sure it is sometimes necessary, if you feel you are pregnant and have no bleeding, to have a blood test done. That would show for sure whether or not you have the pregnancy hormones in your system. Hope this was helpful. Keep us posted.

  21. So i got my period last month but it only came on for two days then no peruod for the rest of the month past few weeks i havent been feeling good took a test but it came out negative now I’m bleeding really heavy and cramping my head is pounding sometimes i feel dizzy and like I’m going to pass out is it possible i could be pregnant despite bleeding and the negative pregnancy test

    1. Hi Queen,
      Well if you are bleeding heavily and feel so sick I think I would try to seek out medical care through your Primary Care Physician (PCP). If the pregnancy tests are negative and you are bleeding heavily, I would guess you are not pregnant at this point. It might be worth it to try to see your PCP, NP or a clinic where they could do some testing (blood testing would rule out pregnancy) and then you would be sure.
      Please keep us posted with what happens and if you are feeling like you are going to pass out, I would have someone try to get you in for an evaluation.

  22. Hello, I took one pregnancy test on August 12 2020 and it came out negative. And my last day of period started July 8th I am currently 12 days late on my period. I have been having some cramps on and off and whitish discharge is there a possibility I’m pregnant please i need answers and help!

    1. Hi Jacquelyn,
      I received your question about being pregnant with a negative pregnancy test. Every so often a urine pregnancy test can be a false negative. That happens for lots of reasons. I would suggest that if you could have a blood pregnancy test (your md, np, clinic) that would determine your pregnancy status. If it is positive and you bring that documentation, we can offer you an ultrasound to confirm how far along you are. Another option would be to come to one of our Centers and if a “lab quality urine test” is positive, we can do the Ultrasound.
      Please keep us posted.

  23. Hi, I’ve had three faint positive tests on two different brands now a negative on another test. What does that mean I’m nearly three weeks late to my period and I’ve not bleed but I’ve been having a few pregnancy symptoms like nauseous, funny taste in my mouth, dizziness my boobs seem fuller and nipples look different..
    Thank you

    1. Dear Han, A faint positive test, usually means a positive test. Where you are stating that you feel like you are having pregnancy symptoms and no period, I would either have a “lab quality test” (we can do that at Your Options Medical” or go to your health care provider (MD, NP, or outpt. clinic) for a blood test. A blood test would confirm a positive pregnancy test. Every so often the urine pregnancy test are not always accurate especially depending upon the brand. If you have a positive blood test bring the results and we can do an Ultrasound to determine how far along you are. Or we can do a urine test using our “lab quality tests” and if positive also do an ultrasound.

  24. My last actual period was July 5th. My boyfriend and I had unprotected sex the weekend of July 17-20… on the 29th I started spotting and continued lightly spotting for 2 days, and then continued to have a drop or two max for 2 days after that. My periods are usually a normal flow that last 3 days every month. I recently developed Thrush, which is very strange as all of my pregnancy tests are negative and that’s a strange thing for a 26 year old woman to come down with. I was supposed to start my period on the 2nd, but it never came besides the weird days of spotting. I have taken many at home tests because I haven’t been feeling well, constant headaches, backaches, cramping, sensitive veiny breasts, and now the thrush. The doctors even did a quantitive blood test on 10th and it was negative. Could I have miscarried, or should I be concerned that I could still be pregnant? Not feeling well and not sure of what is going on and my doctors are stumped as well.

    1. Hi Kendall,
      Yes, all of that does sound somewhat strange especially the negative blood test. I would have thought that if you had miscarried there might have still remained a few pregnancy hormones (Hcg) in your system which would have shown up on blood test. I would return to the doctor for another blood test just to totally rule out pregnancy. Those hormones increase with pregnancy and the blood test is the most accurate. Also the treatment for the thrush is important. I am glad you are under Doctor’s care to get to try to get to the bottom of what is going on with you.

    1. Hi Jasmine,
      Yes, that would be pretty confusing. 6 pregnancy tests !!(that’s a lot of money😒) I am curious if the positive tests were first and then the 3 negative ones and how much time frame in between the tests ??? (Hrs, days, weeks ??) All that is important information. At this point perhaps go to a MD/NP/ health clinic and see if they will do a blood pregnancy test. That should confirm either positive or negative. We are also available to do “lab quality pregnancy tests” if you choose to come to one of our Centers.

  25. Hi!
    I’m very regular and my cycle is 28 days. I’ve been on Loestrin for 8 months. I’ve never had an issue with irregularities. I’ve never missed a period. I have mistakenly missed doses and have never had any issue. My fiancé and I had sex 7/26 (I was on the final sugar pill for that week)… then I missed 2 doses the following day(s). I doubled up on 8/6. I’ve taken them consistently since then. In the last few weeks I’ve experienced: urinating frequently (which is not normal for me, so I had a UA & Culture=Both negative), bloating, random nausea (no vomiting), frequent headaches, back pain, hot flashes, mild sore throat, fatigue, very mild cramping. I had the smallest, faint light pink spotting last week when I wiped once (again not normal for me). I was due to start my period this Sunday 8/16. It hasn’t come yet. I’ve had a very small amount transparent clear goo like brown when I wiped once a day so far on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and today. Nothing like my usual period. I took a clear blue and first response test on Tuesday 8/18 morning. Both negative. Took another clear blue test this morning- negative. Is there ANY way I am pregnant even with those 3 tests being negative starting 2 days after I was expecting my period to start? Is it unlikely? I know my body and something isn’t right.

    1. Hi Marissa,
      I am getting back to you regarding your questions about a false negative pregnancy test. Well, I am hoping by now you did get your period. You said you were due for it on 8/16. To try to answer your questions: yes, it is possible to have a negative urine pregnancy test and still be pregnant. A blood urine test would be the best advise at this point. It is too bad that when they did the Urinalysis that they did not also do a quick pregnancy test. All that said- you sound like you have lots of symptoms (sore throat/ hot flashes) You could have a couple things going on- a virus/ infection and of course always a possibility of pregnancy along with other issues.
      If you have not gotten your period at this point, and urine pregnancy tests remain negative, I would suggest you go to your PCP, NP or health clinic for a blood pregnancy test. If it is positive and you would like an Ultrasound to determine how far along you are and viability, we will be able to do that. (Just bring your proof of pregnancy from that blood test). If you do another home urine test and it is positive, you can also come to one of our Centers and we will again do the pregnancy test and then if positive, do an ultrasound.
      Please keep us posted as to what is going on with you.

  26. Hello I had my period July 30 but all I did was spot and my periods are never irregular..After that I had cramps for a couple of days then one day I had to constantly pee..Then I would feel twinges in my lower left part of my stomach..Then a few days later my nipples starting getting sore..Then out of nowhere I get these horrible hunger pains..Plus I get dizzy and now I notice like flutters in my stomach…I have taken pregnancy tests but they say negative…Could they possibly be wrong or is it the start of menopause.

    1. Hi Marlena,
      In answer to your question, “If you could have a negative urine test and still be pregnant” the answer is yes. Every so often that does happen. I would suggest that if you do not get your period (a regular one and not just a little spotting) that you go to your PCP, NP or health clinic and ask for a blood pregnancy test. If that shows positive(usually they like to do a couple of them to see the increase in the hormone level) then you would know for sure. If you would like an Ultrasound after having a positive blood test or a positive urine test, we are able to do that. Please call one of our Centers to set up an appointment.

  27. I had light bleeding for three days the day I expect to see my period. I took a test and it came back negative but am expecting nausea, head aches, tiredness and mood swings. Any chance I could be pregnant?

    1. Hi Rhea
      The fact that you are experiencing nausea, headaches, tiredness, mood swings and a lighter than usual period does indicate something is going on with you !!
      Sometimes a urine test does not pick up the pregnancy hormone and in fact you could be pregnant. (I’m not saying you are !!) A blood pregnancy test would be the most accurate, especially if these symptoms continue. Your PCP, NP or health clinic can do the blood pregnancy test. If it turns out to be positive and you want an Ultrasound, you can call one of our Centers (bring the result of the blood test) and we can do an Ultrasound to see how far along you are and viability of the pregnancy.

      I can’t say for sure that you are pregnant or not but perhaps with your symptoms and that you have not had a period in two months I would suspect it. Sometimes the urine pregnancy test does not, for some reason, pick up the Hcg hormone. I would suggest you go to your PCP,NP or health clinic for a blood pregnancy test. That would most definitely confirm the pregnancy. Sometimes they will do more than one to show the increase in the hormone. If that test is positive and you would like an Ultrasound, we could do that. Just bring the proof of the blood pregnancy test with you. The Ultrasound would determine such things as how far along you, the viability of the pregnancy. (Heart beat) and if more than one !!! All important information.

  29. Hi…
    I had an intercourse16days to my period…during does days I was feeling discomfort in my lower abdomen… Any slight pressure on my lower belly hurts…and I’ve been having weakness and I sleep most of the time…the point is,I have seen my period for less than the 6days which is not normal…and the pt strip says negative… Do you think I’m pregnant?

    1. Hi Merliet,
      Of course, anything is possible. Yes, sometimes you could be pregnant with a negative urine PT. With the symptoms you are experiencing pressure, weakness etc. I would feel better if you tried to see your PCP, NP or health clinic. They would also be able to do a blood PT which would be a more definitive if you are pregnant or not.

  30. Is it possible to get pregnant after having your period ? i had my period 2 weeks ago i usually have bad cramps on the first day of my period but the last time i didnt and all of a sudden i felt cramps on the 4th day !! i feel like im pregnant because i feel nausea without vomiting dont eat much as usual ,dizzy sometimes , and tired everytime i took a test and it came out negative but i have pregnancy symptoms

    1. Hi Selena,
      Yes, sometimes a urine pregnancy test is not always the most accurate. Is it possible that the period you described was not really a period but more something called “implantation bleeding”. From your description, I am not sure. If concerned regarding being pregnant I would try to see your PCP, NP or Health Center for a blood pregnancy test. This will for sure detect the pregnancy hormones, especially where you say you think you are having pregnancy symptoms. If you have this blood test and it is positive, we are more than happy to do an ultrasound to determine how far along you are, number, viability and if the pregnancy is in your uterus. (Rare that an ectopic happens, but it does every so often.

  31. Hey , my period has always been irregular it will come1-3 days late once it came 14! Longest it didn’t come and recently I had unprotected sex July 4& 21 and my period was suppose to be here the 31 of July and hasn’t came it is now 29 days late and I’ve took 5 test and all negative , I seen a very faint line on one but I just don’t know what to do

    1. Hi Loop,
      Just received your question. Yes, it is possible to have a negative urine pregnancy test and still be pregnant. I would say that if you did see a faint line that is an indication of a positive test. I would suggest that you try to go to your PCP, NP or health center for a blood pregnancy test. That would be more accurate. If , in fact, you are pregnant from the unprotected sex on July 4th, you would be about 10 weeks 2 days. We have Centers in Revere, Fall River and Sturbridge that would do a lab quality urine pregnancy test and if positive, offer you an Ultrasound. If you have a blood pregnancy test and it is, in fact positive, you could bring those results to one of our Centers and again we would do the Ultrasound. This would help to determine for sure how far along you are, the viability of the baby at that point, number of babies, and if the pregnancy is in your uterus and not an ectopic pregnancy.
      Hope this information is helpful. Keep us posted

  32. Hi I’m Julia. I never ever miss a period. I’m always on time give it take a day or two. My last cycle was July 23rd, 2020. It is not September 2,2020 I’ve tested a couple times all day negative. I will have period like cramping and feel like my period is coming. And it doesn’t. The cramps come and go. I also felt twinges or stinging in my nipples today. What in the world is going on ?!

    1. Hi Julia,
      Yes, I can see how you could be concerned as you have never missed a period. To answer your question, yes, it can happen that the urine test shows negative, but that you could be pregnant. A suggestion I would make is that instead of doing pregnancy tests “couple times all day”, I would do a test using the first urine when you wake up. It is the most concentrated. Another suggestion I would make is that If you have a PCP, NP or health center you could go and have a blood pregnancy test, that would be the most accurate way to determine the pregnancy hormones for you at this point. Sometimes crampy feelings do occur with pregnancy and different feelings in the breast (or it could be that your period is just really late this month due to other reasons ( i.e. stress, diet). If you either get a positive urine test or a positive blood test and you would like an Ultrasound to determine how far along you are and other information (viability, is pregnancy in your uterus, number) that is something we would be happy to provide.

  33. Hi I have been exhausted and cramping I can’t tell if I’m pregnant or just about to start my period I took a pregnancy test but it was negative and it’s been a bit since I had sex

    1. Hi Jessica,
      It could be that you are late for your period. Many things affect whether or not we get our period on time. If you are concerned about being pregnant and the urine test is negative, perhaps have your PCP , NP or health clinic do a blood pregnancy test to measure pregnancy hormones. You said “it has been a bit since I had sex”, does that mean weeks/months? Have you missed periods before? Just some questions to be able to better answer your question.

  34. Hello, my period has always been irregular and sometimes I even miss a month. However, recently I haven’t had my period in two months, but I experience what feels like period cramps for over two weeks. I had intercourse 12 days before my last period, but all four of my pregnancy test came out negative and have no other symptoms. I don’t know exactly what’s going on.

    1. Hi Maria,
      It’s hard to know what is going on with you, as you say “your periods have always been irregular and you miss a month”.
      Sometimes a urine pregnancy test does not detect the pregnancy hormones. My suggestion would be to do a test with your first urine in the morning as it is more concentrated. If that is still negative , I would suggest that you try to have a blood pregnancy test (at your PCP, NP, health center) and that would for sure detect pregnancy hormones.
      If either of those are positive and you would like an Ultrasound to determine how far along you are (as well as some other indicators of the pregnancy) we are able to do that.

  35. i missed my period so i took a test and it came out negative but then i got 2-3 days of light bleeding which was weird so i took another and it was positive, a week later just to make sure i was pregnant i took 3 tests and they all came out negative, why would one be positive and these last 3 all be negative?

    1. Hi Lexa,
      That all does sound quite confusing. It is possible that it was a false positive test : or you could have had a miscarriage – very common and that is why it showed positive and then a week later negative: or the urine tests that are now showing negative are not picking up the hormone which can also happen. Very hard to know Lexa what is going on- but yes, it is possible to have negative urine tests and be pregnant and every so often there can be a false positive test. Pregnancy blood work is the most accurate at your PCP, NP or health center. Best time to do that is around 10 days after you miss your period.

  36. Having all pregnancy symptoms which come and go.Done 2 urine tests,ultrasound showing dark shade,blood test came negative.My period didn’t show I only have spotting days before my period which was to be on the 25/08/2020.Dont know what to do now.My doc said I must wait and look for my September periods.zCan I have your advice please

    1. HI Nelly,
      So, your doctor is telling you to wait for your September period it sounds. The blood work and ultrasound I take it were negative for pregnancy. What was the date of your last period? Was it the 8/25 when you had the spotting prior to it or are you feeling that the last period was in July? I would think that if your last true period was the July one that the ultrasound and blood work that the doctor did would have showed some signs of pregnancy. That might be why he wants you to wait until your September period. When did you have the doctor visit? Also, were the urine tests negative? If you do have a positive urine test or have blood work that says it is positive and you want an ultrasoubd to confirm some things, we can do that. Let us know.

    1. Hi Lessa
      It seems like you have done many pregnancy tests and they are all negative. To answer your question, yes it is possible to be pregnant and have a negative urine pregnancy test. Would definitely try to test with the first morning urine as it is more concentrated. At this point, though, if you are truly concerned and feeling like you are pregnant (your symptoms that you mentioned) I would suggest you try to go and have a blood test for pregnancy (your PCP, NP or Health Center).

  38. Hello, I have PCOS (diagnosed in 2017) and have very irregular periods (bleeding anywhere from 8-21+ days). I had my last irregular cycle back in June and then a two day break (after taking some fertility supplements for about 2 weeks during the long cycle) and had a 2 day break before my next period. I then had normal bleeding of 7 days. I amazingly ovulated and my husband and I had unprotected sex. I tested twice in 2 week increments (end of July and beginning of August) with negative results. I’ve had a lot of breast tenderness/swelling and even some severe leg cramping (so bad it woke me up multiple times in the night), decreased appetite and lots of fatigue. The leg cramping occurred during the time of the negative test results (and I didn’t even know it could be a symptom). I’ve dealt with a lot of negative results of the last 3 years and am reluctant to test again. Next week puts me 12 weeks from the start of my last period and also the longest I’ve gone without a cycle even with my PCOS. Just looking for some help before I go down the google rabbit hole. Thank you 😊

    1. Hi Esther,
      Yes, it must be very frustrating and probably not a great idea to “go down the google rabbit hole” !. Is it possible that you could have a blood pregnancy test from the practitioner that gave you the fertility supplements? Yes, every so often, you could have a negative urine test and still be pregnant. If you do another urine test, try to do it first thing in the morning as your urine is more concentrated. If you still believe you are pregnant, I would suggest having the blood pregnancy test. Please keep us posted.

  39. Hi, I went to the hospital and they did a blood test and it tested negative but I feel weird like I am pregnant.. I’ve been having headaches and loss of appetite and my bf is always feeling weird. But my period is suppose to come in 2 days but I don’t feel any symptoms. Is it possible that I am still pregnant even if the blood test says negative?!

    1. Hi Precious,
      Usually a blood test is accurate for pregnancy unless it is done too early. At what point were you when you had the blood test ? The blood test (testing for the hCG level) is best if taken after 10 days after you miss your menstrual period. (Can detect as early as 6-8 days after ovulation- but as I said best if taken after you have missed your period).
      Will be interesting if you get your period – you mentioned you were due for it in a couple of days. If not- perhaps wait as I said above and have another blood test.

    1. Hi Vicky,
      Yes, I would wait and if you do not get your period you could take another urine pregnancy test (first thing in the morning when your urine is most concentrated). If this is negative and you are concerned regarding pregnancy you could have a blood pregnancy test either by your PCP, NP or Health Center. That test is best if you can wait till at least 10 days after your missed period.

  41. My last period was July 27th, I have taken numerous urine pregnancy test some have came out negative others have came out with positive with a faint line. Im not one to miss my period I am regular with my period. My dr did a urine test which came out negative, but when I wiped that day there was light pink on toilet paper. The light pink on toilet paper continued that day and was gone the following day. Could that have been implantation? I get nauseated, fatigue, and headaches. Took another test 2 test this morning one had a faint line and the digital one said not pregnant.

    1. Hi Maria,
      If you are getting a faint line on a pregnancy test, that is a positive test. Yes, sounds like you have done a little research re: implantation bleeding. Do you have a way to go to one of our Centers, (Fall River, Revere or Sturbridge) for a lab quality pregnancy test? If that is positive and you would like an US that will be done. If you go to a doctor, (your PCP, NP or Health Center) I would ask for a blood pregnancy test. That would be more accurate at this point for detecting pregnancy especially if July 27th was your last period. If that is positive and you would like an Ultrasound just bring the proof of pregnancy from the health care provider, and we can do the ultrasound if that is what you would like.

    1. Hi Andrea,
      Oh dear, that is not great that you passed out at work. If they did a urine test at the hospital or a blood test and you were too early, both of those might have come back negative. Now that you have a positive test at home and if you would like an Ultrasound to determine how far along you are (it would determine if you were, in fact, pregnant around that July 14th time) we could do that Ultrasound. We would do a lab quality pregnancy urine test and if that is positive, offer you an ultrasound.

  44. Hello, my girlfriend had missed her period for 3 months and we have taken several test and they all have come out negative. Is it possible that she may be pregnant.

    1. Hi Alan,
      Every so often the urine tests do not show a positive result. I would suggest that if your girlfriend has not had her period for three months that she go to her PCP, NP or Health Center and see if they will do a blood pregnancy test. At this point that would be the most accurate. Every so often changes in diet, stress, extreme exercise, ect. can cause someone not to have their period and the person is not pregnant. Probably best she gets that checked out.

    1. Hi Ruth,
      Yes, every so often you could be pregnant and the urine tests do not show it. One suggestion is to do the test the first thing in the morning (1st urine is more concentrated and might show it). With the symptoms you are describing, I would suggest trying to have a blood pregnancy test for the hCG hormone at either your PCP,NP or health Center . If you are at least about 10 days after your missed period it is pretty accurate to test for pregnancy.

  46. Last few months .my period had been acting more off than im used too.i thought maybe because i was turning 30 .i hear it changes with age. One month it came very very late but it was so light . and ive always had a heavy period with or without pain..and the next momth it arrived on the right week but it was very very very light again much more lighter than the last time. So since aug 17 i have had on and off bleeding. Cramps started later in the end of month. .it stop for a few days but it restarted and ive been seeing and having spotting and cramps since then… I saw yesterday and still today. And im cramping but its not bad. And its at the bottom of my stomach.more like right at the top of my pelvic.pain like my period.mild i dont need painpills for it. Bleeding never gets on my clothes .its never enough for that. And ive seen stretchy mucus like discharge.im confused. I finally decided to get myself a primary doctor.i go next week.but any advice as to what might be happening to me

    1. Hi Liiv,
      I am glad that you were able to get a Primary care doctor for your questions and concerns. He/she might be helpful to figure out why the change in your periods. Is there a chance you could be pregnant ? You did not mention that. If there is a chance of pregnancy perhaps you could have a pregnancy test (urine or blood) to rule out pregnancy. If it is determined you are pregnant and want to bring a Proof of pregnancy from your medical provider, we could do an Ultrasound to determine how far along you are.

  47. Hi! I was on Nexplanon for 5 years. I got it taken out on August 18th, 2020. My husband and I would like to start trying on October. My insurance cycled over in September, do there were a few reasons to get it out. I wasn’t on any contraceptive and we had unprotected sex on August 22nd and 23rd. Then, I started the Lolo pill from August 25th-30th. I was very nauseated so I stopped. We have had unprotected sex about once a week since then. It is now September 12th, and I have had cramping for a couple days weeks, VERY sore breasts when I was on Lolo but just my nipples are sore now. I am coming home ready for bed at 6pm everyday. I have a lot of discharge but no menstruation, yet. I have had three negative tests but I know it’s been too early. When should I take my next pregnancy test?

    1. Hi Rita,
      I would give it a couple weeks before taking another pregnancy test. Your body has gone through a lot with the different hormones (Nexplanon and the LoLo pills). I would also take the urine test for pregnancy the first thing in the morning when you wake up as that is when your urine is the most concentrated. If it is positive and you would like an ultrasound, we are able to do that. Please let us know.

  48. Hi my last period was July 28th. I was on birth control but missed a couple days middle of August. Took a test Sunday and it came back positive. Took two more and a blood test Wednesday and all came back negative. I have had almost constant nausea, headaches, exhaustion, trouble sleeping, heightened smells, food aversion, plus a need for foods I don’t normally like. I’m worried I’m pregnant but that it stopped progressing. I’ve tried a couple places who won’t give me an ultrasound without a positive test again. I keep being told to just wait a couple weeks and see what happens. I’m almost positive I’m pregnant. Whether I miscarry or not will show in a matter of time. I guess I just want to know I wasn’t crazy to believe that first test since I’ve had all the symptoms too

    1. Hi Anna,
      Well it is a little confusing why the first test on Sunday was positive and then on Wednesday two urine tests and a blood test were negative. You would be very early if I am looking at your dates correctly. If your last period was end of July and you probably conceived mid-August you would today be about 6 w 4 or 5 days.. I know the blood test is a little more accurate a little further along you are. So, they are probably correct in telling you to wait it out a couple of weeks. Yes, most places (including us) will only do the Ultrasound if you have a positive urine test. If you have a positive test with us or bring documentation that you have a positive blood test from a health care provider we can offer an ultrasound. And of course, before any decisions are made you should know for sure that you are pregnant as well as all the other things the ultrasound shows (is the pregnancy in your uterus, how many, date the age of the pregnancy and the viability -is there a heartbeat). Keep us posted.

  49. Hello,
    Last week I had an ultrasound done for other medical reasons and the tech asked me if I had a positive pregnancy test. I said no and asked why? He explained that he seen an early gestational sac and I was in total shock because 6 yrs ago I had a tubal ligation. I came straight home and took a test and it came back negitive. Few days later I took 2 more the same thing,today I took 3 and all were negitive also. I go in tomorrow for a blood test but im just wondering why all the test are giving me a negitive reading if a gestational sac was seen? I’m due any day for my cycle.

    1. Hi Ash,
      Well that is interesting. I am hoping that the tech did not see a small cyst or something that was other than a gestational sac and has you in such a state of shock. I am glad you are having a blood test to determine pregnancy perhaps better than the urine test. Have you been having your period and also any symptoms of pregnancy (i.e. nausea/vomiting, swollen or tender breasts, etc.)? It is a possibility that someone who had a tubal ligation could become pregnant – my understanding is if the tubes were burned or tied can make a difference. Rare but I have heard of it. By now you should have had the blood test. Keep us posted.

  50. Hello,
    I had an iud removal aug 5th. I have always had a regular period with 28 days in between. I know things can get kind of wonky after a removal but I’m 10 days late. I took a urine test on the 12th and it was negative. I also took one when I was 4 days late and that was negative. I’m not sure when or even if I ovulated this month but I can say I have a ridiculously healthy sex life. I have no appetite, I’m nauseous, sensitive nose, with headaches body aches and a slight tenderness in my boobs however I’m not cramping. I do feel kind of bloated and I’m crazy emotional. It’s all driving me crazy. I’m not sure if I should wait a little longer to test or not. My doctor said that The one I took at 4 days late was accurate and I couldn’t be pregnant but with each passing day I get more and more sick and a new symptom shows it’s face. I just want to know if I am or not. The wait is literally driving me crazy. At what point do I stop testing and when do I call a doctor?

    1. Hi Maria,
      So, it sounds like you should have had your period around September 5th. Did you have the IUD out because you did want to try to see if you could get pregnant? You do sound like you have some symptoms that are strange for you. My suggestions would be to wait some more as you MD said, take another urine test early in the am (first morning urine, if you have slept all night, is usually the most concentrated) or try to see your PCP, NP or a Health Care Center for a blood pregnancy test. By now that should be showing positive if in fact you are pregnant. Hope this helps, keep us posted.

  51. Hello!

    I’m 32 yrs old, I’ve been off birth control for almost two years with a fairly regular cycle 23-28 days for the past year, no exceptions. My last period began August 5th, I had sex unprotected, sometime between 17-20 and again 24-25. I expected to get my period sometime between 9/1-6, but it never came. I’ve been getting hormonal migraines around my period for the last 6-8 months, nothing this month Nor did I break out/mood swings as usual. Around the 25th I began to lose my appetite, feel so full I couldn’t eat more than a few bites at a time, frequent urinating and bloating/constipation. I have been feeling cramps and lower back pain along with heart burn and acid reflux since 9/3 but never received my period. I took a preg test yesterday mid day after drinking lots of water (neg) but thought Maybe it was diluted and took it again this morning (another neg). Is there a chance I had a false negative even though I would be 4-6 weeks preg? Should I be concerned about other health issues (ectopic preg? Ovarian cancer)? I’ve had zero spotting..

    1. Dear Mari,
      Thank you for your inquiry. You are correct in the fact that drinking a lot of water will dilute your HCG level which is the hormone secreted by the forming placenta, and is what is detected in a urine pregnancy test to indicate pregnancy. Repeating the test was the correct thing to do, using your first urine of the day.
      Two negative pregnancy tests at 4-6 weeks is possible, however, most tests are sensitive to HCG at this point. HCG levels would most likely be elevated in an ectopic pregnancy.
      There are other factors that can affect your periods and it is best to consult with your doctor if these symptoms persist.
      Our services are limited to pregnancy confirmation: pregnancy testing, ultrasound, and pregnancy options counseling. If you would like to schedule an appointment for pregnancy testing and ultrasound (if medical criteria is met) please call 617-419-6112 or text 508-251-9022.

  52. So, I am always on time with my periods my husband and I have been trying for awhile. So my last period was July 28-2. I know we tried the beginning of August but also August 17 we tried as well. I’ve had no positive tests yet. I went for blood testing on Sept 1 and it came back negative. I’ve had a lot of symptoms so far and I’m just wondering what to think. My doctor did give me a requisition form for an ultrasound on this coming Tuesday to confirm. Could this be chemical or did I test to early?

    1. Hi Shalynn,

      Thank you for your inquiry. Ovulation begins mid-cycle (approximately 10 days after the first day of your last period). This is the most favorable time to get pregnant. Aubust 17th would be around that time with the dates you have listed. September 1st would only be two weeks after August 17th. It may be too early to get an accurate reading on a pregnancy test as the hormone level (hCG) that pregnancy tests detect in your urine may be too low for the test to read. When taking a pregnancy test, wait until the first urine of the day (in the morning when you first wake up).
      If the test is still negative and you continue to feel like you are pregnant, call your doctor to schedule a check up as other factors may be causing you to miss your period. I hope this helps! If you would like to schedule an appointment for pregnancy testing and ultrasound (if medical criteria is met) please call 617-419-6112 or text 508-251-9022.

  53. I suppose to see my period around 22/23 of August but I saw it around 29 of August,i had sex the 4th day I finished my period and since last I have been having serious headache,too much sleeping,and I eat more than before,frequent urine,running stomach,big belly.but the pregnancy test is negative what is happening to me

    1. Hi Mary,

      Thank you for your inquiry. With the information you have listed, it is difficult to say what exactly is happening with your body. You should be starting your period this week if you have a 28-30 day cycle. Ovulation occurs mid-cycle (approximately 10 days after the first day of your period) which is the best time to get pregnant. It sounds like that time for you would have been around September 5th.
      It may be too early to get an accurate pregnancy test. Also, it sounds like it would be too early for you the have such strong symptoms. If these symptoms persist especially the head ache, you should seek medical care immediately. If you would like to schedule an appointment for pregnancy testing and ultrasound (if medical criteria is met) please call 617-419-6112 or text 508-251-9022.

  54. Hi, I’m 42, my last period was beginning of July and lasted 25 days some days was normal bleeding some days was like only spotting, I now have passed 2 cycles no period, at ob/gyn end of July I was told had small cyst no worries, bladder slightly tilted no worries and ovaries looked great, I have nauseous feeling every morning, slight dizziness some days, i have taken 2 test both negative….i have no symptoms of premenopause. What could cause this with both test negative?

    1. Hi Jeorgia,

      Thank you for your question. One of the symptoms of pre-menopause is irregular periods. Conditions other than pregnancy can affect your period cycle. I am happy to hear you wne tto see your OB/GYN and suggest you call them for further evaluation if your symptoms continue.

  55. Feeling all signs of pregnancy and iv been waiting for over two months to see my period… But its still not coming forth…iv done a blood test…its negative… I also did urine test …its the same thing….repeated the blood test last week still negative… Is there anything wrong… But my boobs are heavy and I feel crampy beneath my abdomen too

    1. Hi Grace,

      Thank you for your inquiry. A blood test for pregnancy can be negative if it was done too early. I’m wondering where you are getting the blood tests done? There are a number of factors that can contribute to periods being late and/or irregular.
      If you do not get your period and are still having symptoms, that concern you, please seek medical care to address your concerns.

  56. I am currently 8 days late on my period. My fiancé and I had sex on my highest ovulation date. I have PCOS, but my cycles have been 28-30 days for the last 3 years. I have been feeling light-headed and dizzy. I already urinate a lot. I am mildly cramping I my stomach and feel so tired. I have light nauseous and heartburn, specifically after I eat. My nipples are so sore and have bumps on them. My whole body is aching. I have taken 5 pregnancy tests, all have been negative. Is it possible that my PCOS may be effecting my HCG levels?

    1. Hi Casey,

      Thank you for your inquiry. It is possible that PCOS may be affecting your hormones. In order to try and get an accurate reading on a pregnancy test, it is best to test using the first urine of the day when you get up in the morning. If you are still experiencing symptoms, you should consult your doctor.

  57. HI, I am 43, I had my last period was July 28 for 3 days my cycle is normally 28 -30 days I was delayed for 13 days when I went for OB as I was never missed my period for this long. But when I undergo for ultrasound there was no sign of pregancy. So, she prescribed me to take Duphaston for 10 days. I went for a blood test the following day to check my hormone balance and it shown that my I have a little high Prolactin. I was advised to take Norprolac by my OB once I have my period for 30 days. On Sept 9, I started to have spotting and light bleeding for 15 days. I have taken 3 pregnancy test, 1-on Sept 10, 12 and 22, all have shown negative results. Since, I only have light bleeding I did note the medicine Norprolac. Kindly advise me if i should take the Norprolac or not… I was advised by my OB to get back after 30 days.

    Thanks,
    Cha

    1. Dear Czarina
      It sounds like the best thing to do would be to continue to check in with your OB/Primary Care doctor where you are under their care. Unfortunately, I cannot give other advice where I have not done blood work or ultrasound. Sounds a little confusing but I am sure that you will be able to sort it all out especially your high prolactin level. I am glad you are under medical care to figure this all out. I am sorry we couldn’t be more helpful. Please keep us posted as you continue care with your doctors.

  58. So I missed my period that I am late I took 1 pregnancy test that looked like a negative but I was sure because I though I could see a second line coming up so I just went about my day thinking it was negative came back to toss it later and it showed positive waited about 2 days took a different pregnancy test that showed negative. I am now six days late . Should I stick with a negative or think it’s positive?

  59. So I missed my period , took a pregnancy test that was negative but also looked like it might have had a very very light positive line but I could tell is I was just seeing things, so I went about my day and came back later to toss the test and noticed that it definitely had 2 lines at this point. I have hard so much about evap lines so I waiting 2 days and took a different test that showed negative. I am now 6 days late, show i retest in a few more days or the first test was just a fluke or evap line ? I have woken up 2 or 3 time with nausea over the past 2 weeks but nothing consistent or any other symptoms I can think of.

    1. Hi Nicole,
      Every so often a urine pregnancy test is inaccurate. Hopefully you are using good quality tests.
      If you are near one of our Centers (Rever, Fall River, Sturbridge) we would be happy to do a lab quality urine pregnancy test for you. If that is negative and you are still feeling that you are pregnant, I would suggest that you go to your health care provider and have a blood pregnancy test. This test would be accurate in detecting the pregnancy hormone, hCG. I hope this was helpful.
