Question Has anyone had a false HPT?!

I'm officially late for my period and tried to take an HPT this morning but it came up negative. Has anyone else had false negative tests? If my period doesn't start withint the next week, I'll try again but I'm oh-so-worried. ha! Thanks for your help.

Re: Has anyone had a false HPT?!

False negatives are fairly common, but never a false positive. Good Luck!! I hope you get the answer you want!!

You probably tested too early. You need to wait until you miss your period and then test.

Re: Has anyone had a false HPT?!

oh geez...those were not the answers I wanted. My heart sunk to my feet when I read what you all said about false negatives being common. Tomorrow makes 2 days late for my period but I've been cramping since this last Sunday. Headaches, little bit of nausea here and there, dizzy at times. They feel like PMS symptoms to me and if I were on my period right now I wouldn't have a care in the world but...well...I'm not!!

Well, *sigh*, I'll keep you guys updated. Thanks for your help!

Re: Has anyone had a false HPT?!

I guess today makes 3 days late including the day I missed when my period was supposed to start. No, I'm ashamed to say I wasn't on bc. I lived with him for a month and we never used protection. That month was the biggest mistake of my life (seriously...I could write a book about it) but now I'm home with family and getting so much support. Don't worry, if I'm pregnant I'll love this child more than anything. It's just hard on me knowing I could be bringing an innocent child into this world with no father. *sigh* Once again, I'll let you all know what's happening as it happens. Meghan

Re: Has anyone had a false HPT?!

All right...update. I just took an HPT(around 7pm) and it came out negative. I'm now almost 5 days late with my period. Here goes another week of waiting and wondering. I'm just NOT convinced that I'm not pregnant.

Re: Has anyone had a false HPT?!

Hi,
Thought I'd see if you knew if you take the HPT first thing in the morning, before you drink anything your urine is more concentrated and if you are pregnant the HCG is highest which will show up on the tests better, some women just have low HCG in early pregnancy so you may need to do it in the morning or go to your DR and they can do a blood test to confirm it, or in the very least start to do some tests to find out why AF is so late. Goodluck

Re: Has anyone had a false HPT?!

Yeah, I know it's better to wait for morning to test, but I was so incredibly impatient tonight. I guess 5 days overdue (as of tomorrow) could still be too early for me but......grrrr!

Re: Has anyone had a false HPT?!

On another board I go on, a lot of women get false positives. They didn't test too early or anything, they're just not pregnant and the test is wrong.

Re: Has anyone had a false HPT?!

what?! I've always been told you can get false-negatives but not false-positives. We've gotta stop putting our faith in those HPT's

I know, isn't that weird? I always thought the same thing until I joined that board but I guess it's possible!

Re: Has anyone had a false HPT?!

Wait a few days and take another one. Actually, I took one with my first pregnancy when I was roughly 9 wks, and it came up negative. I never figured out if it was something wrong with the test or what. It was weird though.
Like someone else on here said....it isnt impossible to get a false negative, it may be that your hormone levels arent at the point where the hpt can pick it up. However, you wont get a false positive. If you did....the hpt company would have some serious explaining to do, I would think.

Good luck

Re: Has anyone had a false HPT?!

9 weeks?! Maybe me feeling pregnant isn't in my head afterall. Tomorrow will make me a week overdue with my period and, I'm telling you, I FEEL pregnant. My abdomen is so tight and "heavy" and I've been cramping for a week and 3 days now.
