Negative pregnancy test could be holding good news for some women who aren’t planning to get pregnant and bad news for those who are trying to get pregnant, but in both cases the negative result isn’t always right, find out how in this article.
Noticing the pregnancy symptoms isn’t the only indicating sign of pregnancy, most of the pregnancy symptoms could happen for so many other reasons but the pregnancy itself. The home pregnancy test is one of the most accurate tests that most women use to find out whether they are pregnant or not, but there are some factors and tips that you should follow to get the most accurate result.
One of the most common mistakes that most women do and result in receiving negative results, is ruining the pregnancy test much earlier than it should be done, let me explain more. The pregnancy test is done by measuring the amount of the pregnancy hormone which is known as HCG. If the HCG amount is above 5mIU, then the test will give you a positive result, but if the amount of the HCG is less than 5mIU, then you will get a negative result.
The pregnancy test is designed to detect high levels (above 5mIu) of this hormone; this high amount can be easily detected after the implantation process is done, when the fertilized egg is attached to the uterus wall. Some women run this test before the implantation process is done and that is why they get negative results. The right time to run pregnancy test is after the missed period with about 5 to 10 days.
Speaking of the missed period, this one could be the second factor that you need to pay special attention for if you are trying to get pregnant. Make sure to calculate your period right, so you can run the test in the right time to get the right result. It’s also so important to know that the missed period isn’t always a sign of pregnancy, it could happen for so many other reasons like taking medications that cause hormonal fluctuations, these medications may cause irregular period or missed period.
Your weight could also be a very affecting factor on your period, if you are over weight or underweight, you may experience some disorders in your period and this could be confusing, because you may think you are pregnant. The sudden weight losing or gaining could cause some disorders as well, so you should pay good attention to your weight, not only to live healthy, but also to stop the pregnancy confusion.
All these factors make it so strange for you, you have a missed period, but the tests gives negative results, so please observer everything very carefully to distinguish the pregnancy symptoms from any other symptoms. There are some tips as well that you miss and they may lead to the negative result. These tips are like buying an expired pregnancy test, so please read the date carefully before you buy the test.
Pregnancy tests aren’t all the same, so read the instructions very well before you use it and pay attention to how long you should wait until the result appear, you will find it written on the test. Don’t drink too much water before you run the test and try your best to run it in the morning, because the morning urine is the best for the pregnancy test.
Take a good look at the result when it shows up, sometimes only one line looks so clear and the other looks so pale or faint that you can barely see and some people think it’s negative in this case. So if you notice any trace of a second line, but you are not sure, you can try another test till you make sure of the result.
All the previous tips and factors could be the reason behind the negative pregnancy test, so whether you are trying to get pregnant or not, pay special attention to them. For sure taking a blood test and visiting your doctor to examine you is still very important to make sure that you are okay. If you get negative results for several times, this could be a medical problem, so you should talk to your husband about it and go together to talk to a specialized doctor to get the treatment if needed.
