    Default Have you been pregnant but had a negative preg test?

    This question was raised in another thread. I was wondering how common it is?
    Have you gotten a negative test despite being pregnant?


    ETA: To avoid confusion, i mean negative tests AFTER your af is due (or has been). When a positive test is expected.

    I meant more as in not getting a positive at all of only getting a very faint one. Or needed the pregnancy confirmed by blood test.

    Its common for Drs test to be negative when home ones are positive as they arnt as sensitive.

    my friend only just found out at 3 and a half months pregnant, via a blood test, after taking various pee sticks a month ago - all with negative results.. so she would have been at least 2 months and getting negatives..

    Did 6 pregnancy tests I'm pretty sure, all were negative. Took the 7th one and came out positive.

    Did she know she was pregnant?

    I was wondering this too - i have never seen anyone in these testing threads not get a positive test at all or even only super faint without getting darker. You hear people say "it happens" but I've never seen or heard of it first hand. Certainly it must be so rare that its not even worth considering that it "might" be the case for me.

    Yep. NEVER had a positive urine pregnancy test at home or Drs using various brands of tests. Blood test confirmed both pregnancies by 8 weeks. Used the last of my tests at 16 weeks and still negative. I'd love to have seen those 2 lines and got excited!

    I was reading about something not long ago called the hook effect where occasionally with multiples your hcg levels are too high to detect via hpt and blood test.
