Missed period, negative pregnancy test?

It can be very frustrating to be late on your period and have a negative pregnancy test. Leaves you wondering what is going on?

You could be experiencing a “false negative” test for the following reasons:

• You may have taken the test too early. While some woman who are lucky to have a regular 28 day cycle, others are not so lucky. You may have miscalculated when you are due and taken the test too early.
• You could have bought a home pregnancy test that is not sensitive enough, try again with a more sensitive test that can possibly predict pregnancy earlier.
• You may have not followed the directions clearly when taking the test.
Irregular Cycles. For some women, being late now and then is part of their “normal” pattern. Other factors that can influence a missed period are increased stress, anxiety, or sleeplessness.
