Pregnancy Symptoms but Negative Pregnancy Test

Positive or Negative

For most women, if you have a late period, or are experiencing some pregnancy symptoms, the easy answer is to take a home pregnancy test. If the results are negative, wait a few more days, and usually your period shows up. If the test is positive, there’s your answer, and you prepare for that journey. However, for some women, the answer isn’t so black and white! For many women, their period may be late, or they might be experiencing pregnancy symptoms like tender breasts, weight gain, fatigue, morning sickness, or other symptoms. However, when they take a pregnancy test at home, it shows up negative! What could this possibly mean? What should you do if it happens to you? Read on for the inside scoop!

Testing too early

One of the biggest reasons that a women receive a false negative result on a home pregnancy test is because they test too soon. The body needs time to build up enough hCG to be detected by an at home pregnancy test. If the hCG levels are not high enough, the test will show up as negative when a woman is really pregnant. This is why most pregnancy tests recommend that you take them first thing in the morning, when the concentration of hCG in the body will be at it’s highest. If you take a test and it is negative, try waiting a few days and then taking another test. This will give your body enough time to build up more hCG if you are in fact pregnant. Testing too early is by far the main reason that most women receive a false negative result on a home pregnancy test.

When to see a doctor

If you are getting mixed results from home pregnancy tests, or if you get a negative results when you think you are really pregnant, you might want to consider seeing a doctor. Doctors can do their own pregnancy tests that can confirm your at home results, or prove that your test is wrong. Doctors also have access to blood tests, which are more reliable and can provide results sooner than at home pregnancy tests. The thing to remember is, if you are in doubt about the results of your home pregnancy test, or just want reassurance, it is a good idea to schedule an appointment with your doctor. That’s why they are there, after all! Don’t be afraid to see a doctor and get the confirmation that you need. Sometimes it’s just too hard to wait!
