I ended up having a miscarriage during february. Anyway, I've had my periods since then but recently i've had unprotected sex regularly with my boyfriend and i've missed 2 periods again and got symptoms. I took a test this morning and it was negative. Should i believe it or should i take it as a false negative like the others? Please help
Hi There, Usually after 2 missed periods a hpt would give you an accurate result, however seeing how you have a history of false negatives with a previous pregnancy it would probably be a good idea to schedule an appointment to have a serum hpt drawn. This is the most accurate and at least you would know for sure.
When you took the hpt this morning did you use your first morning urine? Hcg levels are always at there highest in the first morning urine, however seeing how you have missed 2 periods usually by that time in a pregnancy the hcg levels are high enough that a test should detect it regardless what time of day you take the test.
With your previous pregnancy when you had the hospital test you did they test your urine or your blood? Also, what type of symptoms are you having?
Good luck sweetie!
