False negative pregnancy tests are common

If you suspect your might be pregnant and your pregnancy test is negative don't give up just yet. It is very common to have a false positive. If your urine was too diluted or if you tests too early you could have a false negative. If your period is still late you should retest every couple of days. If you keep getting negatives and your period doesn't arrive after a week or more you should call your doctor for a blood test.

    I've known a lot of friends who have had negative hpt's up to 6-8 weeks. Most of those girls have been younger, I don't know if that has anything to do with it or not. lol. But I'm hoping that is the case now. lol. I'm -2 days from af, with bfn;s.

        I have never gotten a false negative... but I can see where this could be a good or bad thing depending if you wanted the negative or not!
