Anyone ever gotten a false negative pregnancy test?? I'm freaking out!!!

Like Tree20Likes

I had the same thing happen. I was under stress and I was always like clockwork. Took the test...negative. Took it again a wk later...still negative but still no period.long story short two gyno visits (two different doctors) and 2 months later and I wad still negative. I was told by the second doctor that the tests at the drug store are just as good as the ones the doctors use. He saw I was still panicked and so he gave me a blood test and gave me a couple if days with of progesterone. Three days on that and I got my period.

Give it time. And most important...RELAX. The stress Will make other worse. Retest in a wk or so and if its still negative then its more than likely right. Do the test in the morning though, when u first wake up. First urine of the day Will have the highest concentration of hormones.

Everywhere I look says to wait a week so I'll give it until Wednesday or Thursday and see what happens. I'm also not gonna take the detox stuff anymore just in case. Thanks everyone.

I have been late before after having super regular cycles. I was 13 days late early this year and took like 15 tests (all negative) and even went to the dr. Ended up getting pregnant for real the next month and didn't take it seriously when my cycle was "late".

I had a thread just like this one only a few months ago!

I am always on time like clockwork and one month I simply wasn't. My period actually didn't come at all that month, but did in the following months. I took 3 or 4 tests to convince myself.

Just wait it out, i know it is hard but there is nothing else you can do.

If you retest this month or end up getting your period I would advise you to retest again next month. My body tried pulling the ultimate prank on me by giving me a false negative on every pregnancy test in the box and I even got a fake period when I was pregnant with my 1st daughter.

Blame it on the cell phone...
Jordan honey,

First, relax, when you worry about being pregnant, you are sure to delay your period. Has happened to me every time I was concerned.

I have never had a problem with boxed tests. I got pregnant on July 1st (Canada Day) with my first daughter and found out July 13th. I got pregnant with my second daughter on Valentines Day and found out March 2nd. It seems I like holidays, but I digress, the point is, that I knew within a few weeks and either on the brink of having my period, or just after I was due.

I wouldn't tell the ex until you know for sure. It opens the door to communication and will complicate things if you are not expecting and have to cut ties again.

I can't speak for anyone else, but there's no judgment from my camp.

At the risk of inflaming this discussion, please remember this too; IF you are pregnant, you have options (although not knowing what state you are in, I cannot speak to all of them for sure). I find that when I plan out what all my options are depending on the outcome, I am much more relaxed.

Sending hugs to you!

Okay, so I've calmed down a lot and at this point whether I am or am not pregnant I know that there's nothing I can do about it right this second. I called the doc and she said that the detox I was taking can dilute my pee (that's what it's for) and to stop taking it (I has already done that) and retest in a week.
I have a feeling I will end up being preggers because I felt like I was getting my period then didn't. Since then I've had constant head aches and was nauseous this morning. I could just be psyching myself out but I doubt it.
As far as options, I'm educated on what they are. Unfortunately, they all suck! Lol. I know though that I am the only one to blame here (him too) so I'll have to deal with the consequences.

True, there is nothing to do at this point except wait so freaking out wont get you anywhere.

Some other symptoms are, spotting 7 days after conception - when the fertilized egg implants in the uterus,

Sore boobs - not like just period sore, but oh-my-god-I-can-barely-put-on-a-bra, sore. This is usually the tell tale first sign.

Morning sickness usually starts around 6 weeks after your last period.

Sometimes pregnancy signs mimic period signs in the beginning so it can be hard to tell.

I say don't tell him till you know for sure. His stress and fear will only add to yours, and if you're not, it will look like you're trying to play games with him.
Good luck- I hope everything goes the way you want.

FWIW, I was always "regular", DH came back from training and my calendar was in the"safe" zone, but I got pregnant anyway. Took several weeks, a couple of tests and finally US to confirm I wasn't in early menopause/or tumor, but had a little one. Weeks of tears and "how the heck did this happen"

Couldn't be more excited about our surprise blessing now

Congrats spider! Unfortunately you story adds to my stress a little. But honestly, I'm pretty sure I'm pregnant. I just feel it. The reason I do kinda wanna tell him is that I don't wanna go through the stress alone. But since I broke up with him I guess it's best I don't involve him until I have to. I plan to test again on Thursday with my first morning pee...I'll be hoping for a negative. But at the same time even if negative it could be something worse like a tumor, so maybe being preggers is the least of my concerns!

a few years ago i was in a bad relationship but i wasn't careful. i had a false negative when i was 1-2 days late and my cycles had always been like clockwordk. by the 3rd late day, i used morning pee and it was super quick, pregnant. i felt the crampiness of a period but no period which really threw me off. unfortunately (but in an wierd way fortunately) i miscarred at 4 months. even after that 4 weeks later i went back to super regular cycles.

another time last year, i had sex, we used a condom but it had come off towards the end i think (i didn't know at the time but when he was going to pull out and remove the condom it was still in me). i didn't worry, until my cycle was late and my breasts were sore and i went back and looked and it was ovulation time that this happened. my period was several days late. i was nervous, this wasn't a boyfriend just someone i was dating. i told myself i'd wait until i was 3-4 days late, i didn't want to take the test, i "knew". well we had sex again (i didn't want to be awkward and not go there) but afterward my stomach hurt so bad. the next day my period came and it was very heavy and "chunky". i literally had to lay in bed all day and i have the most uneventful periods all the time. i'm certain i miscarried. again, i wasn't "happy" but i wasn't sad. i ended up not going out with the guy anymore, i realized he wasn't someone i wanted to experience pregnancy with.

good luck to you. i do think stress and worry can delay a bit and i also think morning testing is best but i also think you know when you are especially if the situation and timing are during an ovulation time. i wouldn't tell the guy until i knew without a doubt. also, when you bring it up to him if you are, have a plan. know what you want to do and what you do or don't expect of him and give him time to process it. if you are you've been thinking about this for days and "talking" to us and others. when you tell him that will be his first time hearing this and he should be allowed some time to think about it before he's expected to respond.

Anyway, we had talked about the possibility in the past and had always agreed we'd keep the baby if blessed with one. Things are a little different now tho. I don't know what I want so I can't plan this without him. I know I don't want to do this alone so if he doesn't want it I wouldn't wanna force it on him. And if he does want it I wouldn't wanna take his baby's life. So it's bound to get complicated!

Sorry...I tested again on Thursday, it was still negative So I called the doc, he said wait a week and retest and if it's still neg I can come in for a blood test if I want.
He said he wouldn't worry until I was 4 weeks late...wtf?! But I don't really think I'm pregnant. I feel okay. So Im not worrying...

I once got my period as I was peeing on the test stick, I kid you not. It was the weirdest thing. While I was indeed relieved, I also wished it had happened before I spent the money on the test!

I hope everything turns out the way you want.

I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
