5 days late Negative Test?!

Emily - posted on 03/04/2015 ( 1 mom has responded )




I am 18 going to be 19 at the end of this month and I have NEVER had a late period its always been on time or a day or two late, but those came with cramping.

Its now day 5 no period no spotting and I have slightly tender breasts and nipples nothing too painful. Very minimal and occasional cramping and a negative pregnancy test to show for it ( i took it at 4 days )

Did anyone else have this problem.

Did you take the test first thing in the morning, or later in the day?

That early on in a pregnancy, a false negative result is still fairly common. To get the most accurate result, take the test as soon as you wake up in the morning. If you wait until after you pee the first time for the day, you may not have enough HTC to show up on the test and continue to see false negatives.

If you take the test first thing in the morning and still get a negative result, you need to go to your doctor. It could just be that your hormones are adjusting to something--anything from a change in your diet, a change in sleep patterns, or even a change in stress levels can cause this--but you need to have your doctor rule out anything more serious.
