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

IAmJordanNicoleIAmJordanNicole Posts: 784Registered Users
So, my period is 4 days late and I'm freaking out! Usually it's like. Clock work every 32 days, but it was due Wednesday and nothing!
I did have unprotected sex during my fertile week but he did pull out, I know it's not 100% effective which is why I'm so nervous!
So today I took a pregnancy test and it was negative, but I'm still worried. I read that it could be too early to tell or something. I just broke up with my bf last week so I haven't told him yet... Anyone had a similar experience or any advice?

    Can you go to a clinic and get a real pregnancy test done?

    I could but not until Thursday at the earliest. I have job interviews Monday and Wednesday and I work on the board of elections on Tuesday. I guess I was just hoping for some peace of mind until then.

    As far as the pull out method, I'm not too keen on it myself but at the time my bf and I weren't fully against having a baby, we weren't trying but it was whatever happens happens. Now I dumped him and I'm worried. I also wonder should I tell him I'm late now, since he knows I was due Wednesday or should I wait until I know for sure? I was thinking I don't want to wait to long because he might feel betrayed or something if 2 weeks from now I call him saying im preggers an he knew I was due weeks ago.

    False negatives are relatively common. Wait a couple of days and do another test first thing in the morning.
    When are women going to face the fact that they don’t know their own bodies as well as men who have heard things?

    Yea I've had a false negative. My period was about 6 weeks late. Unfortunately I ended up having a miscarriage at 7 weeks. The only way to b sure that ur preggers is to have a blood test. The test u buy at the store r just as effective as the test the doc will give. In the mean time just chill cuz stress can delay your period. And if u really wanna b sure wait a month until u completely miss a cycle. I know it may be a long wait but it is not unusual for a women to miss a period.

    This. I'd wait 2-3 days and then do another test, with first-morning urine.

    And, no, I wouldn't tell him anything until I knew for sure.

    Can I ask how quickly you dumped him after the deed?

    Lol. Well, the deed that could have impregnated me was October 20, I dumped it Nov 1. But we had had sex plenty in between.

    I agree. I had a false negative with this pregnancy and then got a positive 3 days later.

    That's what I was worried about. I really don't want to be pregnant! Breaking up with him was a hard decision and it would be impossible for me to stick to my guns if he had to be around. I'm never ever late...ever so my gut is telling me I'm pregnant. My bestie thinks I should tell him now so he's not thrown off or doesn't think it's his if I don't find out for a few weeks. I dunno what I'm gonna do!

    u had unprotected sex on the 20th (17 days ago), your period is several days late and u took the test today and it came back negative. I would trust the test at this point.

    I was 15days late in Aug. Just like you I was very regular up to that point, I could practically tell you the time of day I'd start.

    I know it's hard, but you have to relax. Stress will make everything worse. I took the test got a neg then waited a really long week. That test was also neg. I'm not pregs and I'm back to being regular.

    If breaking up with him was that hard you could be stressing yourself out and that's why you're late.

    Wait a few days, up to a week and take the test again.

    Don't forget to breathe.

    Well that's the day I THINK it happened, but we also had unprotected sex on the 22nd, 25th, 26th and 29th. Basically we never use condoms...I wouldnt be worrie except that I've never in 10+ years missed a period or been late and that now we're broken up.

    I think it takes 2 weeks for HCG to show on a pregnancy test. So if u got preggo on the 20th, 22nd or even 25th, I think u would have gotten a positive test by now since you have missed ur period. The 26th and 29th - yea, too soon to tell on the old pee stick.

    Don't tell the guy unless you know for sure! That would be some serious girl-on-guy game playing. If you don't know for sure, you'd just be telling him for the drama it creates.

    Tests can come out negative up until you're actually late for your period. For right now, there's no reason for anyone else to be freaking out but you. There will be plenty of time to tell him once you know for sure.

    Her period is late, but she may have conceived just a week ago. When should she retest is the question. I'm beginning to confuse myself now. I thought it takes 2 weeks and a late period for it to show on a preg test. But my bestie is here and she said it may take 3 weeks for HCG to show on a test.
  • IAmJordanNicoleIAmJordanNicole Posts: 784Registered Users
    Might I also add I've been taking a detox called sonne 7...supposedly it flushes your system and could dilute your urine. The reason I'm taking it is because I have done some recreational drug in the past and am job hunting and was told it would make it so that thc didn't show up in my urine when tested. Could that effect the hcg as well??

    I know some people will judge me for that but, whatever...

    Well, it takes two weeks for a pregnancy test to come out positive bc you ovulate two weeks before your period, and you get pregnant when you ovulate.

    If she's late for her period, but only had unprotected sex a week ago, I would guess she's probably not pregnant.

    But I don't know. I'm confused. Now. You're probably just paranoid. Hopefully. :)

    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.

    You're right, I may be psyching myself out a little. I'm just concerned because a few months ago my dad passed away and I was suuuppppeeerrrrr stressed as still came on time so I never experienced stress effecting my period. 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...
  • IggywagyIggywagy Posts: 36Registered Users
    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 :love7:

    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!

    Could that detox cause your cycle to be off? might check side effects...

    I thought the same thing for a sex but I was already late when I started taking it on Thursday morning...I mean, I guess it could buy since I was already late I kinda counted it out. I just stopped taking it all together tho do we'll see.
